Excerpt from Earth Wisdom
During my life, I have been driven by my intense desire for freedom, happiness, and love, which led me to try all sorts of methods that promised such fulfillment. What I have learned in my search is that it is the development of self-trust and self-reliance that is most cri
tical. Learning to be your own guide through life is what spiritual maturity is all about. Then you will be a light not only for yourself, but you will be an inspiring light to anyone who meets you.

For many years I studied with a famous spiritual teacher who glorified yoga and meditation. When I realized that I was out of touch with my feelings, I then studied with a teacher who glorified emotions. Feeling bored after a few years, I moved on to study with a teacher who glorified the mind.

Some of the spiritual teachers I learned from were world-famous; others were known only to a few people. Some I knew personally; others I knew only from the books they had written. Awakening to the reality that all are equal and that nobody should be followed, I finally went my own way. Now I follow my heart and look within for the light to guide me on my path.

Real spirituality is not an experience, an attainment, or an awakening--it is an understanding of your true nature. And it is not the case that you gain anything from such an understanding or that you become somebody special. You simply understand the truth of who you are.
