Spiritual Stupidity

Six (of seven) meditators at Stockholm’s Central Train Station. The sign taped to the railing above their heads reads: World Peace Meditation.

Throughout the ages doing nothing while claiming to be working spiritually has been considered a virtue.

Look, we’re sitting on the floor, dressed unconventionally, in the middle of a pedestrian thoroughfare, thinking deep thoughts (on or for world peace). We threaten no one. You should think well of us.

By questioning a handful of people watching the meditators, I got the impression that these unfunny clowns can think what they want, where they want and how they want, but the people looking at them should think politically correct thoughts. We observers shouldn’t think that they are stupid even if it would be stupid to think otherwise. The guitar is probably smarter than all seven of these mental dwarfs combined.

Modern society tolerates holy nonsense. The more abstract the better. Think, that instead of these willfully blind meditators, a pleasant looking-couple stood holding a sign: Sweden out of Afghanistan!

Meditate on that!

    Just what I’ve always been thinking of these spiritual idiots.
