But, if you really want to start walking the path of your own spiritual awakening and don’t have many resources at the time being, you can start reading books on the subject, there are many wonderful authors out there regarding this subject. You can join a local group that shares your interests, learn to meditate, get involved in some of your community activities. Sooner than later you’ll find yourself working on your spiritual life without much effort. Although it does take discipline and patience to walk that path, because your ego will fight back when you try to silence it.
They say that when you are ready the teacher shows up, and I know this for a fact. There is no right or wrong path, it’s only important that it’s your own path and that it feels right walking it. Just choose your spiritual adviser wisely. Like the author says, no matter how many degrees or credentials a person has, if you have a “bad feeling” you should walk away. Not all paths are for everyone, you have to find your own. Not all guides are fit for us all, we each have to find our own mentor and guru. But I personally think that it’s important if not imperative that we work in our spirituality to heal humanity and the planet as a whole.
Bless you Jonathan!
