Hi everyone, great community! I personally don't have a 'curriculum vitae' in anarchism or anything like that... I understand anarcho-spirituality as the state when one forgets about names, culture, color, race, ideals..Then what's left is something that doesn't know about 'good' or 'bad', Proudhon, Bakunin or Tolstoy and his 'christian anarchism'.

If I had to place myself somewhere, I'd say it's more of a green anarchism, social ecology stand. I think there is a lot of un-learning to do before we can qualify ourselves as spiritual beings.Thanks for reading and looking forward to some interesting conversations. Keep the community active!

"But doesn't my name, culture, color etc define who I am? It differentiates me, from you."

A lot of things differentiate you from him, including basic natural science. Should we eliminate the physics of particle bonding or the biological processes that constitute you or him as beings, respectively? Should you be merged with him to one mental-physical entity, or cease to operate on your own independent imperatives, instead eating and shitting and fucking at intervals coordinated by the local council of which I'm sure you'd be an equal member?

You say differentiation brings division, which breeds hatred. I think this says more about you than about the nature of identity, cultural or religious affiliation, biological uniqueness or anything else. Why do you hate what's different from you, and seek to eliminate it? I know that's put in a confrontational way, but that really is the meaning behind what you expressed.

How can you know what is the meaning behind what I was trying to express?

In all sincerity, I do not hate what is 'different' from me. Because the consciousness of mankind is common everywhere, like there is emotional hurt and the need for security, but also joy and what we call love. If you think about all this you'll see that human consiousness is common for everyone, no matter how different the external layers are.

So instead of looking within (where we're all the same), we take tremendous pride in the roles we're called to play upon. Real anarchy is to strip away the external (or better yet, just let it be) and become free.
