The church may serve as our guide through these personal labyrinths. Still our spiritual pilgrimage is distinctively our own. It is the very stuff which determines what we ultimately call “character.” Our spirituality, for better or for worse, determines what kind of person we become, whatever meaning we find in living, and what we leave behind as a witness that we once walked this sacred earth.There is a second dimension to the spiritual quest, equally significant . . . perhaps even more so. It is hinted at in Acts 17:28, when Paul speaks of God in this manner: For in Him we live and move and have our being. As surely as there is a physical realm of existence, there is a spiritual. The second dimension of the spiritual quest is to live as fully in that realm as we do in the physical. It is when we reside in that realm, even partially, that we experience God’s Presence, that we gain fresh awareness of the sacredness of all of life, and that we discover powers of understanding and healing which normally evade us.These excerpts from my own spiritual pilgrimage reflect these two aspects of spirituality. I have blended my educational tools with my personal experiences to guide you through some of the spiritual passages of my journey. These are not the only resources, however. There are spiritual dimensions available to seekers which guide and empower us as we go. I shall share them as appropriate. Each lesson required years to complete and mature into a higher stage. I share them because all personal experiences have some common ground to which others can relate and understand.
