The mind can use any thought as a refuge, as a place to land in an attempt to find sense of safety.
It can land on any idea to avoid fear, and avoid feeling what’s here.
The content of the idea doesn’t matter. The mind can just use whatever is available and seems most fool proof.
And that means that it can also use “spiritual” ideas as a landing place, including ideas of awareness, emptiness, and so on.
And there is nothing wrong in this. It’s all innocent and from confused love.
