Death by Mysticism

The most lethal thing for those who take their mysticism neat is the insidious idea of passivity, the 'let go let God' trope,the consider the lilies of the field injunction, to forgo effort,will,intellect all the things that go to make a functioning flourishing human being and embrace waiting until something from another dimension impinges on the brain and directs action. The lilies analogy is apt because if you reduce yourself to the non volitional state of passive inaction you will indeed take on the properties of something less even than animal,a non sentient plant or vegetable.This is the state a literal interpretation of scripture reduces a human being to and such is religion's baleful effect on human consciousness -a truly inhuman ideology for the production of religiously reduced automata.
