The Spies

LINER NOTES: Why Interpreters 'Make Really Lousy Spies'

Part 1

In every generation comes to the world only a few souls with the potential of breaking the glass ceiling of the existing level of consciousness. The existing level is fit for the technical-mechanical-material and linear worlds This world has got nothing in them which could feed or enable space for the dimensions of the level of consciousness which is fit and right for a human who can develop in his inner life to a higher level.

And not only are the dimensions of possible consciousness locked within the existing level of consciousness, the soul also finds itself in a limited space, like a prison in which its prisoners are stress, pressure, tension, guilt feelings, aggression, anxiety and more.

Generally, what is common are humans whose level of inner life serves the ego. And those who could not find fulfilment nor satisfaction in just ego life, without searching after meaning and truth – find themselves going after gurus, like: Carlos Castaneda, osho, erchart toll or spiritual ways such as: yoga, meditation, Zen, integrative philosophy, anthroposophy, forth way and more. The problem with those spiritual teachers and ways is that they look like, and might be perceived as, a revolution against the existing order of things. But the more they are popular and widespread – the more would the establishment receive them with open arms… the books of popular spirituality are in every bookstore, groups that study the existing spiritual ways are almost in every country. The embrace of society of those ways and gurus is sterilizing out of them the protest of the spiritual & conscious minority which is under the suppression and dominance of the existing social order. And then above the surface the disciples of osho and the like look as though they are in a world which challenges the existing consensus, but society acts very wisely in that that she allows those gurus and groups such opens, because instead of real revolt, revolt against the essence of what happens to the inner life of human beings who are under the existing social order – they cause a release of pressure and frustration of those who are in the majority of those spiritual groups which allows them  to return back to the social order. And then we find with the majority of the members of those popular groups a paradoxical situation, in which their revolt against the existing level of consciousness of the majority – becomes a dress while the essence of their lives is not very different from the essence of the silent majority, who is lacking the connection to its inner life, and their consciousness is in a state of limited space, flat and constricted by the acceptable form of thought.

Here are some words about the silent majority who lives like what is described in Malvina Reynolds song: little boxes:

Little boxes on the hillside,
Little boxes made of ticky tacky
Little boxes on the hillside,
Little boxes all the same,
There’s a pink one and a green one
And a blue one and a yellow one
And they’re all made out of ticky tacky
And they all look just the same.

And the people in the houses
All went to the university
Where they were put in boxes
And they came out all the same
And there’s doctors and lawyers
And business executives
And they’re all made out of ticky tacky
And they all look just the same.

And they all play on the golf course
And drink their martinis dry
And they all have pretty children
And the children go to school,
And the children go to summer camp
And then to the university
Where they… .

This song is about the majority which lives in the small box of what is acceptable, a life which is a prison to what is high in the human. 

So, until now we saw two groups – one is the silent majority, the other is the group of popular spiritual groups, here I want to present a third group: the group that has a real and essential revolt toward what life holds for us as far as our soul and consciousness is concerned. Those people are not interested in wearing spirituality as a dress, they are looking and seeking to break the glass ceiling of their common level of consciousness.

They know that if they want to grow and to develop in their inner lives – they need to stand against what the system and the silent majority did to their inner being. But if they are to expose their critic against what the existing order of things did to what they could  

 Be – then their life will suffer greatly. Almost most of those who come out with real revolt against the life of the silent majority will suffer in one way or another, one of the more frequent forms of suffering are guilt feelings, isolation, low self-image, depression and more…. They could not bear the reflected image which they receive from members of the silent majority and some even commit subside or sink into mental illness like Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche. 

So, what can the real revolutionaries who could not find a refuge in the expected and popular spiritual ways – do? 

For if they revolt clearly – they would suffer, and if they join the silent majority they would betray their inner mission. 

And here comes a third option – to impersonate oneself as being part of the existing order, while inside they maintain a different world, a world of their mission.

Part 2  

For people that managed to maintain a non-compromising quest for truth –there is no other option but to become spies.

But the third option hardly exists, people of this third option could be called: spies, they are non-authentic on the outside but very authentic on the inside. This is a conscious division, and only in this way they “could have the cake and eat it”, so to speak… 

Without the art of spying they will either be stigmatized by the establishment or suffer from psychological crises on and off. One should admit that both options are bad, and then all which is left for them is the art of spying.
