Spiritual Work

Q: How should one envision spiritual work?

A:   The process is one of discovery and is thus directed within.  It is by  influence of the Self that spiritual endeavor becomes chosen as a life goal.  It is primarily a decision.

Q: But cannot spiritual commitment and endeavor be disruptive to one’s customary lifestyle?

A: Modification is ordinarily sufficient, at least in the beginning.  Intensity of focus may bring about changes that are seen as disruptive; however, major life changes also occur as a result of lesser ambitions, such as changes in relationships, occupation, locality, illness or other life circumstances.
