It appears that a degree of mindlessness is necessary before one crosses over to spiritualism. Mind contains the opposites - the positivity and the negativity. What you express depends upon your situation. If you meet success in working through the system, you express positivity. If you meet opposition, you express negativity. An average individual evens up in meeting successes and oppositions in the system and therefore escapes mindless negativity. Nevertheless, mindless negativism sets in if you rise above your petty contentments and discontentments and take on the larger issue.
If suicides, loot of public money, rapes, politics of division etc. do not appear to you to be distant happenings but personal losses, mindless negativity is bound to erupt. As you meddle in negativity mindlessly, over a period of time it occurs to you that the fault lies not with the system but with your mind where all thoughts arise. The system has always been and would always be incorrigible. If however you changed your mind, peace prevails. And what greater relief it would be than to arrive in no-mind. Searchers of truth arrive in the wisdom that the world out there is a make-believe. The hullaballoo gives an impression that something great was happening. The discerning eye, however, lets you know that all hotch potch is nothing but child's play, building castles in the sand, not to be taken seriously.
How seriously would you take a happening occurring in your neighborhood considering that it would not even be noticeable beyond the neighborhood, in the larger area that comprises your locality. The locality that itself is a minuscule in your city. The city which itself is too small to be noticed in your country. The country that is almost undiscoverable on the world map. And the world which is almost non-existent if you considered the entire cosmos.
Imagine, if you were to be the entire cosmos, would you have cared about some mindless negativism occurring in an infinitesimal part of you? It may come to us as a great surprise that each one of us indeed contains the entire cosmos within. The existential experience of it comes easily when you practice meditation, regularly, and arrive in the state of no-mind, some day. You see, to become conscious of containing the cosmos in you or conversely you being the entire cosmos, the mind has to be in silence for a while. Once you experience no-mind, the mindlessness going out there in the world becomes frivolous, that is a promise.
