"Spiritual development can be seen as a purging process in which you gradually root out the obstacles that keep you from your essence. In this sense, treading the spiritual path is not usually the easiest road to follow. In doing so you might be confronted with your darkest corners and your not so attractive traits, but in this process of growing awareness you also strengthen your life foundations. If you skip steps in your growth process, or if previous phases in your development have received inadequate attention, you are vulnerable to achieve a drifting spirituality that is not sufficiently anchored in your human existence, or a spirituality that has gone overboard and does not take into account a nuanced reality and the sensitivities of others."

I have been thinking alot about surrending and purging in my own life and how it affects my own spirituality. I am watching human existence in it's own growth patterns or purges and defining moments. How obstacles, seem to challenge more than others. The state of affairs. How this becomes an awakening, yet a double edge sword. How the older generation doesn't understand the younger generation, where there is a finding of oneself, yet a unauthentic self that is a decay- is this the road that is easiest to follow? Have humans forgotten, that the life path is not straight and narrow. That in development, there will be failures and successes both. The darkest corners of the mind, can result the greatest changes in the human spirit. Understanding that loving one another is more powerful than hate. How hate and fear can kill someone, not only mentally but physically as well. Where sometimes, the power and want of change, manifests into more rage, cause one has drifted from the subconscious- where proving a point, is really not proving anything. Where love gets lost and where love is found. All in our reality. Where does the spiritual path lay?
I would love to hear where your spiritual path lays. What are the defining moments for you? What anchors you? What are your foundations? What are your obstacles? What are your strengths? What do you need to purge?
