It is one of the most important things, to be grounded. Some people think that being spaced out is being spiritual, but actually it’s escapism. It’s not dealing with things inside you, loving and forgiving and understanding yourself. You’re wasting another lifetime, really. One of the most important things to remember is that the only way we can stand in our power is to be human and not to be an escape artist. I’ve realized there’s no escape. You have to be there now and understand what’s happening, to and around you as an individual.
One time I lived for 3000 years on planet earth. I spent 2000 of them in a cave in the Himalayas, starving myself and meditating. What did I get out of it? A sore ass. Enlightenment through punishing myself, my body? Ignorance. The program is that everything is difficult. This is from the controllers. Gives them a sense of power.
There’s an idea that you have to be spiritual. This idea of spirituality doesn’t free us; it only enslaves us more. We have to behave a certain way, we have to dress in a certain way, we have to eat a certain way, we have to speak a certain way and everything. You’re not a miserable human being trying to be spiritual, you’re a spiritual being having a human experience.
