Accept your responsibility to mature spiritually

Rev. Claudia Naylor of Decatur Unity writes "Creating a Personal Spirituality" in which she quotes Thomas Moore's new book, A Religion of One's Own. Following Moore's observation, "Mysticism involves a constructive loss of self and a feeling of being connected to the whole of life," Naylor suggests:
"Not only do we have the right, but we also have the responsibility to pursue our own spiritual path, to make this journey deeply personal. If we develop a sense of the divine within and all around ourselves, then we dissolve the sense of separateness and isolation, which then allows us to become one with all that is."
She also quotes Matthew 25:35-36 and John 8:31 during this Lenten meditation.
