Reuniting the Spiritual and the Practical Through Activism

By Julian Rose / Activist Post

One of the most significant hurdles to our development as ‘whole’ human beings is our attachment to the false separation made between what is considered ‘practical’ and what is considered ‘spiritual’.

It is a dichotomy whose origins can be traced back to the invention of Religion: as a man-made vessel in which to encapsulate the spirit, and as a formal statement of belief in one faith or another faith; one temple or another temple; one god or another god. In other words, to that point in history when our nature and spirit led celebrations of the miracle of life were superseded by the intellectualisation and compartmentalisation of such experiences under the specific control of an authoritative body: i.e. a priesthood attached to a church.

Tragically, this false compartmentalisation of the spiritual has played a key role in keeping mankind locked away from the universality of spirit which is our birthright and true potential. So much so that it has been possible to foment crusading wars in the name of all-powerful sectarian gods and the blind faith which devotees hold in them. Millions have been, and continue to be, murdered in the name of the leading religions of our era, stretching back for centuries. For those who see themselves as free from ‘religious’ persuasions, money and power provide the latest totem of worship, but in truth this totem is followed with all the same blind belief as that to be found in religious cults.

When we are mere babies, those of us who were born into the Christian faith are initiated into the protective institutional arms of the church by the ritual known as ‘baptism’. Here, the mark of the cross is symbolically drawn on our innocent foreheads by the priest whose finger is first dipped in sacred water deemed to form a direct link to John the Baptist’s initiation of Jesus Christ in the waters of the river Jordan some 2,000 years ago. In the eyes of the church – we are then one of its children. A condition which can later be endorsed by participation in the Christian confirmation ceremony of our early teens.

    Anyone who has read enough history and the lives of the saints knows that those who are the most spiritually advanced are also the most fruitful where truly meaningful labors are concerned. Chastising religion is just being intellectually lazy and going along with the fashion of the present hour; unfortunately for the fashionistas, their thesis is refuted by history, i.e. experience. The compartmentalization from which we undoubtedly suffer entered the picture just prior to and during the 16th century revolt. It started in the realm of ideas, the realm of philosophy; thence, it slowly but surely spread into all areas of life. The spiritual life, the life of contemplation can no more be separated from a true, vigorous and useful active life than the body can be separated from the soul. When such a separation occurs, we call it death. Moderns no longer know the deep ways of the heart and mind and soul; our activity does not flow from a deep interior life, but from our fascination with mere externals and external activity. Activity for activity’s sake, if you will. It is the age-old struggle of the letter (which kills) versus the spirit (which quickens) and, after many centuries, the need for putting the spirit first and letting it vivify the letter, so to speak, is finally getting more attention.
