Existence and non-existence, life and death, theism and atheism, effort and non-effort have meaning only on the mind level. All such discussion becomes meaningless or non-valid upon transcendence of this level; one then is truly beyond religion.
What is the need for religion, for a so-called spiritual orientation in life, at all? If living is a natural function, like breathing, then why interfere? Why can we not continue in our naturally more or less hedonistic way? This would be true if our minds were still functioning in their natural ways, free of complexity, flowing with life. This assumption, as we all know, is no longer valid-if it ever was. Our minds are heavily conditioned, fragmented and deep in contradiction. This deep conflict in the mind lead inevitably to conflict in society, and thus to chaos.
True religion or spirituality is nothing other than the reversal of this whole process of chaos, conflict, to a state of simplicity, naturalness, and therefore order.
