Spiritual paths are not like the physical paths we see in our mortal realm.
Paths here are wrought by many feet, and always the same. They all lead to the same place each time. Not until we make a conscious decision to walk into the darkness do we get lost, or find a new path. We must physically move ourselves in order to stray and be harmed.
But spiritual paths are different. They shift and change. Two people may walk the same path to happiness. One, with a clear heart and good intentions. The other, motivated by greed and fear. Who will prevail, do you think? But look: they walk the same path. They donate the same amount of time, money, and energy. But who will be the happier in the end? The path changes depending on who walks it.
We don’t have to literally step off a spiritual path in order to find ourselves unhappy or lost. The path is a metaphor, an easy mask. The true journey comes from within ourselves.
