Who’s the “most spiritually” developed person in the public eye?

45 posts in this topic

Who do people think has developed the most spiritually and by what criteria? 

 

Not asking whether you think it’s important or not or whatever other irrelevant stuff people like to say when asking a question. It’s just an open question, I’m curious at what people think and why they think it.

Any of: 

Rupert Spira, Francis Lucille, Adyashanti or Sadhguru (although he dumbs his teaching down a lot)

Quote simply they are fully self-realised beings who have realised the true nature of themselves, abide there and have integrated this into their lives.

How about Eckhart or Dalai Lama? Or Leo?  What do people feel like Leo would have to do to reach such a stage, he puts soo much effort in with these “advanced” techniques. Did everyone else just get lucky? Did they just get it quicker?

I would recommend these people. They have influenced me a lot. 

I look up to them 

Rupert Spira 

Adyashanti... Even his voice is spiritual lol. :D

 

Eckhart Tolle 

 

Dalai Lama. 

 

I mean these people have done years of self awareness and meditation. 

I also periodically read Buddha's quotes and they are very spiritual and resonate with the wisdom of life. 

Lot of these gurus constantly appear on Oprah's channel OWN and they have their own YouTube channels as well. 

So yea you can read and listen to their podcasts in your free time. 

They are awesome and deeply spiritually gifted in my opinion.

Levels of spiritual development is just a story. It's part of the game. Degrees of enlightenment is really interesting for the ego. The ultimate specialness. You project the need for specialness onto the "teachers," and see them as all knowing Gods amongst men. Separation at its finest form, tricky trap.

@traveler Not at all, some people are genuinely awakened more deeply, and know their being more clearly. 
 

Watch a Tony Parsons video, and then go and watch a Francis Lucille/ Ramana Maharishi video you’ll notice subtle differences. 


@Jahmaine I think Leo has certainly had many many awakenings on his trips and what not, but I’m not at all convinced he abides there in his sober/ natural state,  could be wrong. 
 

im not sure “why”, I would include Dalai Lama, hut again like Sadhguru, he has to dumb most the teachings down as he’s such a mainstream figure. I also imagine being a monk for that long can create several shadow issues, such as sex. 

 


In regards to Eckhart I love him, I used to watch him everyday a couple of years ago and read all his books time after time, power of now was like my bible 😂 

However, I do not feel hes as deeply awakened as say Francis and Rupert from what he says and what not. 
 

Those 2 go way deeper than Eckhart and kind of go beyond his message. Although I think he’s the perfect bridge into this work for the mainstream.

The mistake here is speculating about the levels of consciousnes of people you don't really know.

The correct answer is: you are just guessing. And that's a dangerous game to play as you could easily be wrong.

So be careful. You could really get screwed up that way by assuming too much. You are not in a good position to judge anyone's level of realization until you yourself are deeply realized. And even then it's tricky.


You are God. You are Love. You are Infinity. You are Leo.

You can never find any person who is totally perfect in the whole universe. 

One can't decide the levels of consciousness. That would be like a judgement game. Also the people who appear highly conscious today might end up doing something low conscious tomorrow. Nothing is certain.

I understand that we can't use labels like "most spiritual" because that really doesn't stick but there is no other way of wording it. 

Following a guru begins with a certain level of trust which is necessary or else it creates an inertia of boredom, no anticipation, nothing to be excited about. 

It's a different thing  if the trust gets broken which should be accepted as the natural course of things.. 

Only hero worshiping is dangerous. 

But don't see the danger in following public figures who have displayed high conscious behavior and good quality teachings for years.

@Leo Gura  Very true, although I feel there's obvious markers. 

The easiest one is those teachers who clearly haven't awakened to love. 

Even then it is a guess. 

But, I think you'll agree in regards to Love, many teachers either don't talk about it/ neglect it, usually as they haven't awakened to it themselves.

Or perhaps they just don’t use the word because of their unique personality. Love is a four letter word pointing to something.

To me Tony is fully awake, hate him or love him. Awake does not imply perfect moral conduct. Moral conduct is a human invention. If you look into Tonys eyes in real life, you will find theres nobody in there. Not there, yet fully present. His audience is another matter though.

I think it's a pretty useful question. We just have to utilize it in a useful way.

Comparing degrees of consciousness is silly when the ego turns it into a dick measuring contest. But this is not the only way to look at this question.

For example, if you want to find a new master for yourself, then it's pretty useful to ask the public's opinion. Because you can find new names that you have never heard before, or you can see some old names that you can see from a new light, considering other people's perspectives and arguments.

I have no idea which masters had the deepest realizations. I think you can't know that without meeting them face to face.
But you can see, even from videos, which masters have integrated enlightenment the most into their personality and into their teachings.
And I think the clear winner here is Adyashanti.

I've been in the spiritual search for many years, and for many years I didn't resonate with Adyashanti at all. I think he is like olives. Your taste has to mature to be able to like it. :D

What does it mean to be "more spiritual" ? I though that there's either realization of no self or there is not and all othere developments are within the person structure.

Except there are many different levels of consciousness. There is an extraordinary range. Has nothing to do with specialness.

There are some markers, although they can only be really understood once one has awakened pretty deeply.

Even that is tricky because people understand love in different ways.

But I generally agree that Love is a very distinctive level of awakening which many lack.

It's also possible they don't talk about it so that you can discover it on your own because love can be a very misleading notion for the ego-mind. Talking about love makes people think love is a personal feeling or something like that.

No

Consciousness is capable of being infinitely self-aware or not, and an infinite number of degrees in between those two.

Wherever you are, you're always at some level. You are closer to zero consciousness than infinity right now.

When sizing up teachers, don't just look at the teacher or what the teacher knows, look at the negative space in between or you might miss the whole lesson.
