“The life path of every Human Being is unique. This heterogeneity is not a function of pre-determination, but rather a continuously evolving autobiography. The course of each individual will engross a multitude of plots and sub-plots, but the evolving chronicles are not produced by pen and paper. Instead, the life story is developed through the structure of cause and effect.
Every advancing moment is written by three preceding causative elements: thoughts, desires, and actions, which reflect the forms of influence that dominate the individual. All causative elements are influenced by some form of interaction. Consequently, these causative elements will become the influence for some form of interaction. The dominate influences will (proportional the spiritual discipline of the individual) open doorways to the structure of Truth, or provide obstructions to entering those doorways. The presence of obstructions is the effect of the individual choosing (or aligning with) the destructive forms of influence (hate, anger, brutality, bias, persecution, etc.). The barriers also deliver a profound message to the individual: she or he should reconsider the influences that are agreed to.
Spirituality is, by necessity, a disciplined conscious effort to examine the depth and expanse of the causative elements in real time. As such, the individual seizes the opportunity to reject those influences that will create obstacles to entering and exploring the path of Truth.”
