Straight and narrow is the path…

Thoughts & quotes from Sir David R. Hawkins, M.D., Ph.D. & Susan Hawkins

It is necessary to develop respect for spiritual endeavor. Straight and narrow is the path; waste no time or effort. Precision is discipline that is innate to serious commitment. Some students may yet be in a period of exploration, but once one gets the “fire in the belly,” the urge to reach God becomes a relentless drive – or even, in the eyes of the world, a “madness.” From that point on, there is no patience for amusement or diversion. It depends on decision, will, the level of consciousness, and karmic propensities. As it gets more intense, the love for and of God allows no delay.     Dissolving the Ego, Realizing the Self  ch. 7, pg. 120.
