The road to spirituality is a lonely path from the world’s perspective. You won’t find a guidebook or set of rules – there is none. You might find a teacher for a short time, but no one will walk the same path for long. Religion offers structure, companionship and rituals. You will find acceptance walking through religion’s door, but religion was created for the masses. It cannot fit each individual perfectly. Religion is a two-edged sword.
I tried the religious path. I’m grateful for the insights it gave me, but it no longer suits me. I now walk personally with the Divine to receive personal instructions and guidance, using shamanic journeying to communicate directly with spirits guides, Jesus and other enlightened beings.
I know this spiritual path is right for me, but there are struggles. It takes courage to trust the messages that I receive. I can’t look to others for advice and sometimes miss having a spiritual community to depend on. In addition, the world is not very accepting of beliefs outside of main-stream religion, even though each started with a man who stepped outside the matrix.
Since I haven’t been on my spiritual path for long, I have to think about every move – just like when I first learned to drive. I try not to second guess myself or let other’s fears or disdain obscure my vision. I have passed the fork in the road, there is no turning back. I walk on the path. One foot in front of the other, walking with the Divine.
