I don’t have a single Spiritual Hero. When I began writing this I thought I’d be
able to force myself into naming one, but even then, I still don’t think I’d be
answering the question. A single name doesn’t answer a question like this. And
neither does two or three. Because if I point to someone else, and I could
certainlydo that with absolute gratitude and admiration, I’d still be pointing to
someone else. And if the Spiritual path has shown me anything, it’s that
ultimately I have to take a stand and point the finger within, because it’s the
only way that anything’s ever going to happen.
Andrew Cohen and the EnlightenNext community is asking this of me today in
a way that I have not previously experienced. Never before have I been told
that the evolution of humanity rests entirely on my shoulders, and on the
effort that I give to moving it forward. Never before have I been told that
I can begin doing this simply by adopting the posture of enlightenment now,
and that I don’t need to keep working and waiting for some romanticized version
to descend, where all the trees start blossoming and my brain hemispheres synch
and the butterflies are dancing all around. Never before have I encountered an
entire community of Spiritual finders who are asking us all, without exception, to
plant our feet, take a stand, and simply hold to it forever.
I have had many Spiritual Heroes. I hope to have many more. And yet I don’t
want to be a bystander, smiling softly, basking in the heroism of others. I want
to play my part, and take up the burden of becoming my own Spiritual Hero for
my own sake, for those around me, and for humanity itself. I want to have the
courage to say these words out loud regardless of the fear of falling into the abyss,
of the storm raging inside, of my mind quietly breaking into pieces.
