The Dark Underbelly of New Age Spirituality

I just came across this as a sponsored post in my newsfeed and I just want to call BULLSHIT.
.
I synchronistically just started a book on spiritual discernment yesterday and the author talks about the dark underbelly of spirituality in the West (and everywhere), where it has become popular to be spiritual, increasing the Big Business potential as well as abuse, manipulation, bypassing, and lots of other shittie ways to distort spirituality. Some (or many) of us go through this kind of distortion and in order to dive deep into our shadows and uproot things that may have been overlooked on a less challenging path. However, discernment is a key tool in a spiritual path.
.
Do you see these kinds of posts and feel a hit of inspiration, only to spiral downwards when it it not accessible for you to be like this always? Or experience a constant striving to be better, do better, reach spiritual goals, attain some form of enlightenment (ie. in a state of "not enough)? Or maybe you read it and your body contracts or recoils. 
.
I see shaming, blaming and fear-mongering disguised as hope and inspiration, feeding off our malprograms of "not enough", or "there is something wrong with me". Ugh don't even get me started on the use of FACT.
.
What do you see/feel when you read this? (Feeling fiery tonight! 🔥🔥🔥)
