Your spiritual development is an inherent part of the process of human growth. Reality, affection, and major power don’t prescribe a particular spiritual doctrine, so there’s lots of freedom to research an assortment of beliefs. But, the highest ideal for your spiritual doctrine is being intelligent.
If your notions don’t fulfill the essentials of being intelligent at the very least, they can’t be considered spiritually sound as they’d be in violation of universal precepts. If a spiritual doctrine buckles under to untruth, if it unplugs you from life, or if it breaks you, it runs afoul of the rules and will only lead you astray.
Social disciplining teaches us to have secure attachments to our spiritual notions to the point of mixing such notions into our identities.
We state, “I’m a Christian,” or “I’m an agnostic,” as though such doctrines specify us as humans and can’t be changed. In this book, I’ll challenge you to view your spiritual notions with reality, affection, and might. My goal isn’t to convert you to follow any specific practice but instead to help you bring greater conscious awareness to your present spiritual life.
