Success, Power, and Wealth

Just a quick post as a reminder that too often the spiritual path is marketed as a how to way of gaining success, power, and wealth. The spiritual journey ought not to be viewed as a means to manipulate and control secular desires. If you want to achieve secular goals of success, power and wealth, follow secular rules. If you want to achieve spiritual progress, follow spiritual rules. Often, the spiritual path can be used as a means of negotiating our way around the secular obstacles or to avoid being crushed by the mundane worldly way of things, but applying tai chi principles, for example, to ways to screw over other people in a corporate setting is not the point of it all.
