The world needs a practical spirituality; one that is relevant to the individual challenges that people meet every day, and to the largest issues facing humanity. Doesn’t it seem to you that many of the religions and spiritual paths offered in the world today rely on a belief in the fantastic? Fantastic ideas about other dimensions, other galaxies, or what happens after you die? If what appears to be fantastic opens the mind to real awareness and experience, it may serve a purpose.

While all those things can be significant steps along a person’s path-perhaps even necessary ones-if they really are steps, and not distractions, they lead a person to the dreadful, awe-inspiring realization that the wonder they seek is within them, looking to get out. And the only thing really stopping it is the person, themselves.
