And 2) we stumble when we do realise our need for alignment but then repeatedly ignore, reject or undermine our own progress on our own path -- or that of others. Because we lack discipline, we sell our integrity, we are in service to self, and because we are addicted to whatever it is that we demand and must have up front in our relationships, all else be damned. Only with humility, honesty, acceptance, and authentic love can we admit who and where we are in this moment, so that we may re-orient ourselves toward Spirit in all other moments.


Lucky me.......I stumbled into this forum which I rarely check. It is like a primer, concise and direct to the point. In this closing paragraph, your first and last sentences made great bookends. Plus, I could not help but notice how your forum signature of the Rilke quote could have quite logically been the direct inspiration for the thoughts that you shared. Thank you.....:)

Bound by conventions, people tend to reach for what is easy.

Here we must be unafraid of what is difficult.

For all living beings in nature must unfold in their particular way

and become themselves despite all opposition.

-- Rainer Maria Rilke
