Before an empty alter

“Our spiritual culture has become very tricky. We have increasingly subtle spiritual concepts to use in our discussions. Many people have replace the old heavy concept of God and sin with the words consciousness and conditioning, which sound a little lighter. The modern spiritual person has these extremely abstract concepts. The more abstract the concept, the more transparent it is. It’s hard to make an image of consciousness and put it on your altar. Your altar keeps being emptied. If you want to see the Truth, don’t put anything there. The best altar of all would have nothing on it.”
