Like swimming in an ocean, against a current.
Myself a current.

I am what I am not.
This becomes, I am that which I refuse to become.

You can never step in the same river twice, but there'll always be a river to step in.

River is a metaphor for the energy field we call existence, out of which we emerge as whirlpools, to use another image.
Even a man standing in place is working, exerting effort, moving, to preserve his position within the Flux.

I use Heidegger's conception of 'looking back'...as a product of the processing speed required by consciousness. This creates a lag in space/time, so man reacts and then justifies his reactions after-the-fact.
This feels as if he were alienated, a stranger to himself. A mind looking behind to see himself acting.
Body/Mind dividing along neurological frequencies.
I use my own imagery, my own metaphors, as you can see, and don't like spiritual lingo, or established narratives. I find them limiting and demanding acceptance and education in their meanings.  
I'm self-taught, and only harmonize my ideas with pre-existing ones as I come across them through others.

My affinity for Evola's spirituality was my recognition of a similarity in myself. Love of mountains and hiking, and cool forests....rather than beaches and hot seas.

Buddhism, for me, is the equivalent of Abrahamism. Not the same but part of the same reaction to Aryan spirituality.
Abrahamism emerged from the contact of certain tribes with Aryanism, via the Greeks/Romans.
Buddhism emerges from contact of certain tribes with Aryanism, via the Hindus.

Buddhism is a product of population pressures. Teaching an attitude that can accommodate the proximity of many others who are strangers.
Abrahamism was slower to develop because the west still had accessible frontiers and so the pressures urbanization and resource management necessitated were of a different kind and at a different pace.  
Christianity is Judaism adapted to Aryan tribes.

Spirituality is an expression of a relationship of man with the world he is awakening to.

I like the image of a self being this flow of emptying filling.

My definition of self is of a continuum, with the ego being the lucid part, the self, small 's', being the subconscious, the self since birth onward and the Self being what preceded conception, on the synthesis of two memory streams DNA.
Individual is past made present - presence.
I am the sum of my known and unknown past. I am a stranger to myself.
To perceive self I must noetically step outside the stream and see it as a chain of events, a long unbroken stream.
Memories are the connectors. Experiences reduced to simplification/generalization codes.

Lack is the product of temporal attrition, or interaction, or being in the Flux - existing.
Lack (need), if successfully satiated, leads to abundance, surplus (desire)...pressure to expunge surplus....so we come to this emptying and filling....in a continuous stream.

Buddhism is a religion suited for passive, low-t, insectoid Asian bugmen with a hive mind mentality.

Them and dumbass hippie leftie hollywood women signalling their open-mindedness and uniqueness by adopting a foreign spirituality.

Guenon, Rene wrote:
All questions of form aside, this de facto separation between Taoism and Confucianism, between the inner and the outer doctrine, constitute one of the most notable differences between the civilizations of China and India; the latter has only one body of unified doctrine, namely Brahmanism, which includes both the principle and all its applications, so that there is no break in continuity from the lowest to the highest degrees. To a great extent this difference reflects the mental conditions of the two peoples; however, it is very probable that the continuity that has been maintained in India, and no doubt in India alone, also formerly existed in China, from the epoch of Fu-His up to that of Lao Tzu and Kung Tzu

So much truth in this, but so little value.
