My spiritual path is my own and of my own choosing.
Wherever I am is where I am meant to be.
I am open to changing directions if it will bring me closer to my authentic nature.
The journey of inner spiritual growth is a distinctly personal one. There is no one right way. What works for one may not work for another. Even individually, a path that has been helpful for a time may start to feel constrictive and ill-fitting, and need to be abandoned. Just as we outgrow clothes and need new ones, sometimes we must seek a new path, one that allows for continued expansion. Many of us are seekers whose spiritual weight goes up and down like a yo-yo requiring frequent navigational shifts. While some have a certain discipline and fidelity that allows them to stay with the same practice for their entire lives, many of us are of the clothes-changing type. Both can be equally beneficial and it is crucial to honor one’s uniquely individual needs and allow oneself the freedom to change course if change is beneficial.

There are as many spiritual paths as there are travelers. No singular way can be right for every person- each heart and every soul are in search of their own unique home. Buddhism, Judaism, Muslim, Shinto, Gnosticism, New Age Spirituality, Wicca, and the thousands of other paths to wholeness, each hold merit for the one who has chosen it. It is important to follow the road (or roads) that meet the needs of your inner being, regardless of the opinions of others. It is equally important that we ask that our choices be respected. And, just as we ourselves ask for respect, so too must we respect the way of others. On this day, as many choose to honor one of the world’s great teachers-Yeshua ben Joseph /Jesus- we can appreciate his messages of loving respect and tolerance “Judge not, that you be not judged.” (Matthew 7:1). And, “And as you would have that men should treat you, treat them likewise.” (Luke 6:31). And, “Love your neighbor as yourself.” (Matthew 22:39)
