mind your head

Following intellectual pursuits often ends in ego identification and failure in the spiritual aspect of the Path. It doesn’t always seem like it will lead there, but it always does. There is no other path than the Path of spiritual pursuit, for a Pupil of the Way.

As a pupil, I am humbled by my own recognition of failure. My failures sometimes arise when I follow intellectual pursuits. Sometimes, living in the world, we need to learn new skills to provide for our lives. At other times, these pursuits are intellectual stimulation, and the ego feeds up on this activity – like a leech upon blood.

I’ve recognized in myself the failure of material learning leading towards ego.

I want to find a way to learn and grow in my professional skillset without attaching to ego… but on the other hand I don’t know if it’s possible.
