Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism, by Chögyam Trungpa is a book addressing many common pitfalls of self-deception in seeking spirituality, which the author coins as Spiritual materialism. It is the transcript of two series of lectures given by Trungpa Rinpoche in 1970–71. - Wikipedia
This book is a great reminder for today. So often society gets wrapped up in all the wrong ways... I think this is one of the downfalls of our culture today. Everyone is in such a hurry to accomplish something. Including developing spiritually. I also get caught up in the need to prove myself in ways that can be seen to others. As if that can compensate for a lack of wholeness within.
