Those from the East have traded the ancient wisdom of their civilizations

For the “modernity and advancements” of the West.
One of the principle reasons for this is that the spiritualists of the East have dumbed down glorious ancient truths into a wastebasket of religious rituals and idol worship

This has created a nation whose worship is motivated by a Fear of godly reprimand
Those in the West who make pilgrimages to the East are often more Sincere in their desire to learn about ancient wisdom, than the Easterners themselves

But they tend to be too blinded by the pomp and ceremony of Eastern Spirituality to be ready for The Truth.
They return to the West, with notebooks under their arm

And run incense-filled “meditation retreats”

In which they they dump the prescriptionized contents of their notebooks upon the eager members of an audience that seeks “self-improvement”
In the end, neither the “guru-certified instructors” nor the disingenuous attendees get anywhere

They hang on for dear life to the rationalization that although they may never have gotten anywhere, “at least they practiced and tried”
The replacement of ritual, religion, and spiritual traditions in the East

With a Pure Pursuit of knowledge about the mind, and the Truth about life, as established by the ancient sages

Can lead to the transformation of millions.

This is humanity at its best.
