There is as much worth in searching as there is in anything else. One is and should be free to do whatever one pleases, as long as no one else is harmed in the process. But I think for many, what they are searching for is a conceptual pipe dream that is never found. What most people really want is an end to discomfort, for things to make sense, for a sense of purpose. Those are individual issues, although universally recognized. The pipe dream, on the other hand, is composed of lofty, mysterious concepts like Kingdom of Heaven, Enlightenment, Immortality, Transcendence. These are conceptual and not worth their weight in cow dung.
Spiritual organizations and religions work hard for retention by offering something that is appealing and eventually attainable as long as you stay engaged and follow the prescribed path(s). However, if you look around, it seems the only one who has attained anything is the guru in the big chair. Everyone else is till trying--forever.
I recently saw an advertised video wherein a teacher discusses 'coming full circle, the end of searching'. He then offers enrollment for his next satsang/workshop. Seriously?
I have nothing but respect for my teachers and those I have known on the path (any path). Again, that is as worth much as anything else. However, if we really look we find ourselves right where we started, right here. Changing paths or belief systems, falling down the nihilistic hole of Neo-Advaita, or becoming a raging atheist is basically just more of the same with different patterns, different carrots. Perhaps it is better to just be, not in any contrived way attained via secret teachings or blessings, but by stopping everything and just being. This is the way of no way.
