The SELF is ‘not’ spiritual … IT is Nothing/Empty and has no defining characteristics of any kind. The concept of spirituality is a made-up term to distinguish between an ‘out-there’ attention on the illusory world of dreaming and the ‘inward’ focus toward the Real. It is a ‘choice’ oriented to Freedom and then colored with all manner of rules, ceremonies, costumes, have-to’s and confining ideas of how to become something you already ARE.
By its very nature it speaks of separation because it places your Freedom [the Real YOU - SELF] out in the future where IT does NOT exist … and separation is the original ‘cause’ of your bondage and belief in an individual personal existence of littleness and limitation. Nevertheless, there is nothing so-called ‘wrong’ with referring to yourself as spiritual providing this label STOPS at the simple statement that you are Freedom-focused without any reference to IT being anything but an ever-Present state. The Truth - the SELF You Are - is SIMPLE. If IT were complicated, millions would have already realized this Truth.
