To follow a path

If a path can be explained to others, if it has all the turns and streets mapped out for others to follow, is not the “only true path.”
It cannot be. Life cannot be put into a philosophy or some dogma.
Nevertheless, religious dogmatic paths also called “spiritual paths,” are necessary for without them a person wouldn’t be able to gain the necessary experience to “know.”

A child needs the structure offered by parents. However, that structure cannot fit the Life experiences of an adult.
Society dictates a path to follow. Our parents do the same, based on their conditioning. But ultimately Life, cannot be met from that perspective.
It is a narrow perspective. There is more in Life.

Life is a pathless path. This is overwhelming for those conditioned to look for security at every corner. These individuals are content swimming in their own backyard pool. They are not ready to meet the Ocean. Life is an Ocean.

The Brahma Kumaris path is a valid path. Just like Christianity. Just like Buddhism or any other spiritual –“ism.”
If those paths are taken to the full extent, they will show us our rejections, our repressions, our firm beliefs and ultimate our deepest fears. However, most individuals are not interested in “knowing” that. Most are interested in “having the truth, in being right.”
If they are unable to see their own “truth,” what are they counting on having?
Just a satisfactory belief. Something to talk about, discuss and defend. That becomes an extension of their own ego. Once the “ego trip” is over, they will be looking for something else.

That inability to see their own truth, will be covered with all sorts of self inflicted falsehoods. That is inner dishonesty.
Some day we may discover that any helpful path, can only take us back to ourselves.
