Spiritual Power & Delusion

As of late, a lot of new experiences have been flooding into my world.  This 13 minute audio clip has been the most profound of those.  The audio is from Tom Kenyon and is available for Download from his website and the link below.  The title is “Spiritual Power and Delusion.”  This talk is an excerpt from a workshop Tom did in Seattle, Washington in 2011.  The focus was on the pursuit of spiritual power and the task of separating it from delusion.

The Punch Line Quotes:

Every Religion has dogma and imprisonment and your task as an initiate is to sort through the truth & the untruth.

I was in search of the Satguru, well there is no such fucking thing.

Tom tells a compelling story in which he sold his belongings for healings, for what he thought would give him the answers he yearned for.  However, to his dismay, he learned that all this did was put his power into the hands of others, as his idolized guru was in fact a con-artist.  Tom goes forward in explaining how his spiritual quest was instead a quest of power.  Finally, as “intuition” lead him to a beach he saw imprinted in the sand “I Love you Tom.”  Tom’s epiphany was to love one’s self through this process, while understanding the power was in him.
