Whenever I tell someone that I’m into spirituality, they usually say something like this: “That sounds interesting, but I don’t believe in anything.” And then I reply: “I don’t believe in anything either.” You see, true spirituality is not about adopting a new set of beliefs. It’s about dropping your whole belief system altogether.
I don’t believe in God, nor in the Devil. I don’t believe in angels nor in demons. I don’t believe in Heaven nor in Hell. I don’t believe in afterlife nor in reincarnation. I don’t believe in ghosts nor in spirits. I don’t believe in magic nor in science. I don’t believe in materialism nor in spirituality.
I don’t believe in life nor in death. I don’t believe in the supernatural nor in the natural. I don’t believe in suffering nor in salvation. I don’t believe in the ego nor in enlightenment. I don’t believe in you nor in myself. I don’t believe in belief itself. I don’t even believe that I don’t believe in anything.
Although I systematically questioned many of my beliefs, I shouldn’t believe that I questioned them all. Believing such a thing would also just be a belief, and it would leave many other beliefs unquestioned. This would be a big mistake, like I explained in my other video titled “Belief is the barrier”.
But don’t misunderstand me, because I’m not telling you to disbelieve in things either. Disbelief is just another kind of belief, and just as misleading as any other. Believing or disbelieving in something is equally futile, and doesn’t bring you any closer to reality.
Like Henry Ford said: “Whether you think you can or you think you can’t – you’re right.” If both are right, then how can a belief help you separate the true from the false? I would also add: “Whether you believe or you disbelieve – you are wrong.”
You see, it’s not about whether a belief is true or false, because all beliefs are ultimately unreal. Beliefs exist on the level of conceptual reality, and although they can be helpful on the level of conventional reality, both the conceptual and the conventional are illusory compared to ultimate reality.
That’s why I urge you to drop the conceptual reality altogether, along with your beliefs, ideas, assumptions, so-called facts and truths and all your thoughts. Rely on direct experience alone, and then start questioning conventional reality too! Can you really believe your eyes? Are your sensations and perceptions really true? How can you know? Questioning even the most basic and evident things can quickly guide you towards absolute reality.
It’s impossible to gain direct experience relying only on your thoughts, and it’s also impossible to gain a full realization of truth relying only on your senses. But this doesn’t mean that you should believe in anything beyond your senses, because that would just take you back to your thoughts, and you could start all over again. The only way is to question both your thoughts and senses, and you’ll arrive to an unbelievable realization where all your questions will disappear.
Dropping your beliefs means that you can’t take anything for granted. It could seem quite impossible to live this way, because you may become paralyzed by uncertainty. But instead of relying on beliefs that you take as true, use probabilities that may or may not be true. Otherwise, you’ll just delude yourself about the nature of reality.
When you achieve enlightenment and attain absolute reality, your life will become much more easier after the breakthrough. You’ll thrive in uncertainty, reality becomes a total mystery, yet you won’t experience indecisiveness at all, because you’ll be guided by your intuition each and every moment. You may use beliefs to navigate conventional reality, but this won’t be a problem then, because you’ll know that conventional reality itself is illusory.
