The Path to Enlightenment
I’m not there, heavens no! But I’m so much farther along the path of spiritual understanding than I was when I started out decades ago. Right now, I’m still learning, but I’m in a pretty good place.
I’ve gotten where I am step-by-step, one book, CD, workshop, conversation at a time. No one person or thing has fixed me by much, but each has contributed to the body of knowledge that shapes me.
Maybe that’s the only way we can get “there” (while understanding that there is no “there” to finally get to. Maybe looking for a small improvement is better than aiming for enlightenment.
Kind of like eating: We have meals as it seems appropriate; we never think we’ll finally eat the perfect meal and then be done.
