Das Spektrum der Spiritualität

Im Folgenden zitiere ich Anfang und Ende des Spektrums von Spiritualitäten wie sie Ken Wilber and Allan Combs entwickelt haben. Am wichtigsten ist die Unterteilung in Naturmystik, Gottesmystik, form- und gestaltlose Mystik und schliesslich die nonduale Mystik.

"Oneness with an animistic world where everything has a living spirit. Oneness with living rocks, trees, rivers. A sense of unity with the personified forces of nature: the father sky, the mother earth, and the sibling trees. Union with a world where animals and people bear magical kinship. Oneness with my bloodline, my family, and its world. Oneness with a world that is undifferentiated from my impulses."

"Emptiness and form are not two, not one and I AM THAT. Aware of all previous structures and forms. I transcend them all. All manifestation is simply a texture fo Suchness, my Real Self, and I am that eternally."

Mein persönlicher Mystik-Favorit kommt aber von Albert Einstein (aus: "The World As I See It"):
"The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion that stands at the cradle of true art and true science. Whoever does not know it and can no longer wonder, no longer marvel, is as good as dead, and his eyes are dimmed. It was the experiecne of mystery - even if mixed with fear [!] - that engendered religion. A knowledge of the existence of something we cannot penetrate, our perceptions of the profoundest reason and the most radiant beauty, which only in their most primitive forms are accessible to our minds: it is this knowledge and this emotion that constitute true religiosity. In this sense, and only in this sense, I am a deeply religious man... I am satisfied with the mystery of life's eternity and with a knowledge, a sense, of the marvelous structure of existence - as well as the humble attempt to understand even a tiny portion of the Reason that manifests itself in nature."
