I’ve always believed that each person needs to find their own personal and spiritual path. No one out there has all the right answers. so if you’re following someone else, sooner or later there’s going to come a point where it’s not really working for you. Well, that is if you’re awake enough to really be paying attention to yourself and the world around you.

I lost sight of that recently, and I tried following a path that wasn’t my own. I thought a group had the right answers, and I tried following them. it was good for a while, and I learned a lot, but in the end I was unhappy because I wasn’t being me.

He’s something I realized: One thing most spiritual paths have in common is that they think they have the right path to happiness/enlightenment. None of them do. even the ones that say there are many roads to the same destination also say that you have to follow certain steps to get there. That’s not really the freedom they claim to offer, is it?

I feel grateful that I realized that I’d gone off the path. I was on my own road and started following someone else’s, but I can always catch a side-route and get back to where I meant to be going. I’m never lost unless I stop trying to find the way.

I want people to learn and grow and think and become awesome. I hope that my life and the things that I share will get people on the right track. There have been many religions, spiritual leaders and teachers who have helped me along the way, and I hope I can help you too. Just keep in mind that while you should learn from as many sources as possible, you don’t need to and shouldn’t live exactly the way anyone else does. take what’s good, leave what’s not, and make your own way through the thick woods of life and into that wonderful clearing you seek.

One of these days I may decide to tell you all about the path that I’m actually on. Realizing that I strayed has actually strengthened my resolve to get back on track and move forward. I can actually see the way more clearly now than I could a week ago, and it makes me very grateful for the detour.
