God, It's Hard Being So Damn Spiritual

So many people laugh at mystics like me, but it's not easy being spiritual. It's probably harder than laying bricks or climbing Matterhorn. It will even affect your wardrobe.

When you're spiritual you have to be mindful, compassionate, clairvoyant, clairaudient, clairsentient, interpret your dreams, interpret other people's dreams, check your Neptune, polish your chakras.

You have to talk to guardian angels, Ascended Masters, descended devas, invoke Osiris, channel Mother Teresa, pray for Donald Trump, read The Power of Now, yell at Caroline Myss, find twin flames on Facebook, and get a Rumi tattoo on your butt cheek.

Being spiritual also requires a lot of exhaustive traveling. You have to buy fake crystals in Sedona, walk the Camino with Shirley MacLaine, heal past lives in North Korea, drink organic chai in Benares, do Tibetan chants in Dharamsala, be abducted by gigantic space ships, and have tantric sex with Scorpios.

No wonder that a lot of spiritual people give up and become yoga teachers!
