Some years ago I was on a station in India with people lying in their own excrement in a waiting room, starving and waiting to die and no one was helping them. A frail old lady came up to me on the platform and grunted pointing to her mouth. I reasoned she was hungry and offered her some money so she could get herself something from a food stall. She shook her head and grunted again pointing desperately to her mouth. I offered her some water from a nearby tap. She refused and continued gesticulating. A man came up to me and said not to bother as she would be dead tomorrow. I got on the train and felt devastated and helpless whilst reflecting on this; it made a deep impact on me.
When I got back home, I contrasted this with our way of life. The latest abundant supplies of gizmos and gadgets were being being competitively sold in electrical shops at extortionate prices as though it was a matter of life or death for one store to outwit another. Not an eyelid is batted by buyers wasting their money on sensational seeking toys - the item often ending up on the scrap heap as throw away technology a few years later. Meanwhile unheard of people die in other corners of the earth while the planet has enough food to feed all of us many times over. I kind of went dizzy walking around the shops for several weeks later
So, we will have to beg to differ on our philosophies. Your way to God seems to be through some meditative technique which I view as escapism - my way to God is help others out on this earth plane as and where I can whilst serving my apprenticeship here on earth - well that's my belief.
A wise spirit from the other side once told me, "There are no short cuts to spiritual evolution".
