We need to become spiritually active - as distinct from materially active.
In our civilization (as of 2021) the ideal is to be physically active, spiritually passive. Physical activity has been valued for several generations; but now, due to totalitarian lockdown, has become a high status marker.
Spiritual passivity is necessary to avoid ostracism and suppression. Passivity is also an ideal among New Agers, Jungians, One-ness spiritual advocates, traditionalist religious (including Christians) - pretty much everybody...
Spiritual activity is rare - mostly because it is actively avoided (the only permissible spiritual activity is to avoid it). It is regarded as a bad thing for the secular-left majority and the religious minority alike.
But those who (like me) regard spiritual activity as an ideal are rare - because for it to make sense as an ideal requires ultimate metaphysical assumptions (i.e. concerning the nature of reality - its purpose and meaning) that are uncommon.
Yet I want to be spiritually active - but not by pushing my thoughts, not by spinning theories, nor by seeking esoteric thrills (which is where it often degenerates into)...
Instead... by starting from love; making evaluations; discerning realities; then working by active, conscious choices - while monitoring my own responses.
...By looking for results in the world of thinking - where that thinking is known to be reality (to be, itself, the 'stuff' of creation).
Spiritual activity should not be (can not be) used for seeking esoteric thrills - but it is intrinsically thrilling: a great motivator and en-courage-er.
Note: Rudolf Steiner's superb book The Philosophy of Freedom is also translated as The Philosophy of Spiritual Activity. Either way; the book has much of importance to say about the possibility of being spiritually active.
