When I first saw you write this, a few days ago, I thought that it was very quaint (and somewhat silly).

Now, however, I'm beginning to think more and more that it's accurate. I'm not sure that I myself could come up with a better definition of spirituality than this metaphor.

Amshinover:

That sounds like more of a monastic style of 'spirituality'. What i'm interested is more of a "walking meditation" or ma rabu ma‘aseikha H' paradigm.

Alan Scott:

Cool poem/comment. What do you mean by "charismatic machiavellians", though? How do they fit into spirituality?

Mar Gavriel:

Thanks! I got the idea a number of years ago from a rabbi and/or teacher who was talking about the purpose of brakhas being to train us to relate to God through going about our daily lives. The phrasing is mine, though . :-)

Charismatic Machiavellians distract their followers through frivolous use of the word "spiritual" (and "mystical") to divert the attention of their followers from their physical problems and powerless status within the charismatic leader's religious sect.
