The spiritual path offers clarity about self but not in an easy, quick-fix kind of way. The intent is to help with inner turmoil and dis-ease. Stuff arises which is uncomfortable and painful. Stuff which might just be better to avoid or ignore or deny.
Inner difficulty has?two parts:
- The stuff keeping me from feeling whole and authentic, and
- The stuff I’d like to ignore which shows up asking for attention when I move toward wholeness and authenticity, truth and trust.
