All our words are but crumbs that fall down from the feast of the mind.
Kahlil Gibran

Words are just pointers to the ultimate truth.

On the way to work, I realized that from a spiritual point of view, everything is superficial - gender, race, status, knowledge, wealth; just about every criteria humans use to distinguish themselves from each other. Everyone is equal spiritually because we all come from the same Source. Some of us are luckier than others because we can see a little more Truth than others. Guess I'm beginning to understand all this spiritually instead of just intellectually.
Comments:
Yes! Paris Hilton may be rich, but she comes from the same Source as me. Albert Einstein may be smarter, but he too comes from the same Source. Therefore we are equals.

On a spiritual level there are some who may be more advanced, but if they are truly advanced they do well by helping others. But I don't think Paris Hilton is too spiritual, so I don't think I have to worry too much about learning spirituality from her. :)
 
It is curious how understanding of the same thing deepens over time. Over and over this feeling. "I did not really understand before but now I do."

This seems to me to be a good indicator of growth.
 
I guess there is no such a thing as absolute Truth. What we call truth is just an observation or a statement of a limited or fragmented aspect of reality. There is only reality and we don't really know absolutely what it is. Therefore there is no such thing as enlightenment in the absolute sense. We just become enlightenend
about certain aspects of reality.
This idea of enlightenment is really just an invention of people who never really achieved enlightenment. What really matters is reality itself not enlightenment. Enlightenment has become a four-letter word for many people.
