Example text

If you find that’s the case, I encourage you to take a few minutes (or as long as you need) to sit in contemplation of all this before you move on. Or, you can do what I would most likely do: throw caution to the wind and forge ahead, allowing things to unfold in their due course as you continue reading. Whatever works for you works for me. Okay, So Then, What the Hell/Heaven Is Spirituality? The beautiful thing is that if you ask ten different people what spirituality means to them, you’re likely to get ten different answers, which makes it clear that spirituality truly is a highly individualized process and experience.

4 As Zach exemplifies, spirituality, and even religion, is not a zero-sum game. It’s about experience. It’s about peeling away the layers of our unexamined beliefs, identities, and dogmas rather than adding to them. It’s about waking up to deeper truths of who and what we are and what the hell is actually going on in this thing we call life. Thank God there are a number of different ways, paths, and teachings to help us do just that, many of which I’ll explore throughout this book, but again, I can’t stress enough the importance of you trying them out for yourself and finding the means and ways that are right for you.

A truly integral approach emphasizes and utilizes all three. Chris’s whole approach is anchored in the higher reaches of Growing Up (worldcentric and integral), and from there, he gives a marvelous guide to the fundamentals of Waking Up, while also pointing out the crucial importance of Cleaning Up. He’s a solid guide to our own growth and development along all three of these paths. So, sit back and get ready for some raw, real, genuine, tried-and-true practices and explanations centering on our own deepest condition and reality, our universal, our Everything Mind.
