The Traps' Trinity

There is 3 huge and major traps if you are on the spiritual path
Those traps, even if fully conscious of them will still be very relevant to be wary off
They will stay with you all your life, even if you awaken (especially if you awaken).

Those traps are really sneaky, and won't feel like trap to you at all.
They will feel like it's how life is now, and you won't even necessarily be able to spot them ,
Even with great concentration and contemplation you might still be able to deceive yourself.

So the reason I'm trying to explain them to you is for you to constantly remind yourself of them,
At least once a month, read again this post, and watch videos about them please .
Not only that, but contemplate deeply about them too for at least one hour a month.

You don't have to change anything in your life,
It's not because you were deceiving yourself for months/years that something has to change,
Change will happen by itself if you become aware of your own blindspots.

Some people stay in those traps all their lives, never knowing they are in the middle of them
This is not some random philosophical theories, you have all of them to some degree in you right now (everyone does).

The first trap is what I call "Avoidant spiritual bypassing"

This is when you unconsciously avoid things you actually need to do in your life to grow spiritually.
Things you avoid by thinking you don't need them anymore,
Because "Happiness is not found in things"

Even though that is true, your mind can still subconsciously think it needs certain things to be happy
Even if you consciously tell yourself you don't.

 

For example, you may think you don't need intimate relationships anymore, because you can (and must) be happy all by yourself, as God.

Wrong

If you never had a fulfilling intimate relationship, especially if you were a late virgin, or just a guy/girl who never had much success with the opposite sex
The chance of you genuinely not needing mentally a fulfilling relationship, is close to 0%.

You need the experience to realize you don't need it
You need to actually have the experience in reality, not in your mind, and see that it can't fulfill you.

Of course, there is a trap inside the trap.
You need proper knowledge about this in the first place, so in this example you need to read why a relationship can't fulfill you.
Not only this, but you need to be conscious enough while you have the relationship to be able to see this, so you need proper meditation/consciousness work too.

And if that wasn't enough, not everything has to be experienced to understand that you genuinely don't need it.
That is relative to every individual, and you have to find out for yourself which experiences you need to have to remove the emotional blockages in you.

The second trap is what I call "Indulging spiritual bypassing"

This is the vice-versa of the first trap.
Here you don't reject an experience, you justify yourself by citing spiritual beliefs about it.

"Nothing exist anyway,
I imagine everything !
NOTHING MATTERS !!!"

With this kind of trap, you just indulge in everything your mind tells you to indulge in.
It's a mindstate where you fundamentally reject any kind of responsability.

The same way that you can tell yourself you don't need anything to be happy
You can tell yourself you don't need to act ethically or smartly anymore.
Remember, "NOTHING EXIST !!!"

 

So for exemple, you may start to think that commitment doesn't matter anymore,
That you can force your wife/husband (or even cheat) to be in an open relationship.
Because, "We're all one lul".

On some deep level, that might be true, and you could even be genuinely into that.
But for most people, this is just an escape to avoid responsability and do whatever their lower self craves.
This lower self is only there because their mind isn't quiet and stable, those needs aren't really needs, they are self-created by an unstable mind.

The repercussion of that is quite obvious,
Losing your wife/husband and/or making them suffer greatly,
Just because of some spiritual belief that you're using to indulge in your selfish and fake (and materialists) needs.

 

Be careful not to use the excuse that you need the experience to know for sure here.
On some case that might be true,
On most of them you're just being extremely (unknowingly) selfish and weak.

The third trap is what I call "Concept-Land"

This trap is all about you using spirituality as a new identity, and not about doing the work at all.
You tell yourself you're spiritual, you speak spiritual, you eat spiritual, you walk spiritual, you look spiritual.

But you don't do any deep consciousness/shadow work at all.

It's just a coping mechanism to avoid life at large, and feeling that you belong to a community.
You basically just parrot what spiritual teachers says, but don't apply practically what they mean through them.

You use spirituality as a way to give you hope that "one day I will merge with the universe"
The same way a Christian tells himself "one day I will be in heaven"

And that is a big problem
Because spirituality is all about embodying its deep truths in reality

Not as thoughts.

There is zero value to know any spiritual concepts if you don't apply them
Because what will happen if you don't,

Is that you will fall in the first two traps
 

Over
and over
and over
and over
and over again
Without even realizing it's the case ...



Your whole life will be a gigantic trap to avoid doing real spiritual practice


By thinking you're spiritual !!!

So how do you get out of those traps ?

How do you know what you truly wants and don't ?

You have to be willing to be very honest with yourself.
Even if it means feeling deep deep deep pain.

You need to understand that this pain is there because you always refused to look at it.
You need to understand that it will only get worse if you don't seriously dig in it.

This is no joke,

Your whole life is on the line here.

The only way this is gonna be done is by contemplating deeply what you are avoiding/overindulging or identify to in your life.

When you find out something that is emotionally difficult to think about,
Meaning that you can't question that belief without feeling pain,
This is when you know there is something to dig.

When you actually dig one of them, you start to educate yourself on the subject.
Also, you need to have a stable meditation practice everyday on top of it (20 minutes +).

 

By increasing your awareness, by being accutely aware of every of those traps, year by year,
You'll see the commonalities of how they are created, and you won't fall into them that easily anymore,
Even if you didn't experienced them in the first place, you will be able to intuitively know it's a trap.

Don't use what the above sentence is saying to get yourself into more of those traps though !!!
Be alert and attentive to your emotions !!!

I really like this thanks.

The only thing I don't buy into is that we need to be in an intimate relationship but I guess it depends on your definition of intimate. 

I think we benefit from some kind of social connection on a deeper level than superficial, that's for sure. Is it essential though? Not sure...

That's just an example, and it's relatively true depending on how you experienced life.
That's why I'm saying this is deeply relative to everyone, no one can know except you.

Don't stay stuck on the examples, they are just there to illustrate the traps.

I'm not saying we need it.
I'm saying you can think you don't need it consciously, when you still subconsciously need it.

But again, this is just one example out of millions possible.
 

Another example:
An ex alcoholic can deny he doesn't need beer, but when he goes to a party he has pretty much has to stay in the bathroom in order to not feel the big lie inside xD 
In this example, it's pretty much impossible to lie to yourself about it, unless you live a life where you never see any beer ever again.

In most cases, you can completely deny something you still desire subconsciously, and never knowing about it.
Denying something you stillneed psychologically has always a negative consequence on how you feel,

@Shin I get that and agree. I think most people, me included, like to play the "self honesty card", but REALLY, deep down, are we truly being honest with ourselves or are we just saying "nah, I don't need it, not for me....." instead of facing our issues, or what I've learned here is shadow work if I've got that right? 

A mixture of denial, avoidance, and projection perhaps? 

Is this kind of what you are getting at?

Yes it's basically shadow work :)

Good god! There are just so many things that can fuck one up anytime anywhere that I sometimes marvel in awe how in the world this thing called 'life' ever seems to work and remain stable😂
