Outgrowing Cultural Conditioning.
When we consciously work upon ourselves, then we evolve. If we are genuine and steady then, sooner or later, we begin to lose all the obstacles between ourselves, our soul, and the Spirit that is All.
This is the purpose of any spiritual practice (sadhana), to remove that which stands in the way of the light. We will eventually loosen off all the conditioning that has been imposed upon us throughout our 'former' live.
We soon outgrow the
negative, game-playing pursuits that we see happening around us and we
gain a certain amount of free-choice in the manner in which we behave
and respond to our environment.
Somebody once asked Buddha Shakymuni:
"Buddha ! What have you gained from your enlightenment ?"
The Buddha replied;
"It's what I have lost that counts!"
The spiritual practices
and eventual enlightenment was a process of shedding off unnecessary obstacle
and condition ways of thinking and being.
