There is No Way to Spirituality; It is The Way

Our simple seeker was meditating on the spiritual concept
of “The Way”. She had always, it seems, found the term
problematic.

What’s the problem with it?

“The way to go” can refer to a direction.

It is a direction.

But, it can also refer to how to live; as in a power
tripper insisting it be her way.

Or his?

I didn’t want you to consider it as personal.

It is personal.

I could have also meant power-trippers in general.

Also suggests the personal was included.

Okay. Yes, but you do sometimes …

Only sometimes?

I’m learning a new way of coping with your way?

How?

Yes. Exactly. Your way, as how you would or do
whatever; your style.

And the results?

It makes it so much less of a struggle; so much
less stressful.

In what way?

Even individual children develop their own way,
their own style, of learning.

And my way is just my style?

Not just …

Yes. We each are unique in some way and we can
only be who we are and learn and do whatever,
our way.

Then, the way to enlightenment can only be
an individual way?

Yes and no.

Please explain.

Learning math, or any other academic subject,
or in developing any skill, requires accepting
general rules or guidelines. But, within
these rules there is infinite flexibility.

Is developing a spiritual life a skill?

No.

Is it a way to enlightenment?

No.

Then, what

It is The Way.

    There are times when Spirit seems to be incredibly awesome, as well as highly enlightened; and then there are other times.
    He has his way; and now I understand more clearly that we each also have our own unique way of learning and relating, and, with him, teaching. I am blessed to have been chosen, perhaps for my simplicity, to assist Spirit in sharing His teaching with anyone who cares to read our posts.
