Also, we tend to choose a spiritual path of ideas which we already believe to be true. It's not like I can say, "Okay, I'm going to try really, really hard to choose to believe that Satan is an actual entity with pointy horns and a pitchfork." *strains brain and hurts self* It just doesn't work for me that way.
I guess in all things there is some degree of choice. We form our beliefs based on pieces of a puzzle that fit into place for us. But ultimately, I do not view choosing a spiritual path as one of life's major decisions I made, because I believe that path, which is forever evolving, chose me.
Oh, and thanks for appreciating me. I miss being here more often. But...life's big decisions seem to never stop calling on me these days. lol.
