Spiritual Teachers

Beginning on the spiritual path is something you do not choose. It chooses you. You cannot even will it. It happens eternally, and when it does. A certain readiness, and the door opens. When it does open, the teacher appears. And, when that door opens, you will most certainly enter. Never to return, and never to have left.

The words of the Masters are there as encouragement and reminders and guideposts when one enters upon that narrow, but straight Path.

An early Christian mystic wrote, "The Path of Love is like a bridge of hair across a chasm of fire." Thanks to Irina Tweedie for sharing that in her autobiographical book, Chasm of Fire.
