The Physics of the Quest

I’ve come to believe that there exists in the universe something I call ‘The Physics of The Quest’ — a force of nature governed by laws as real as the laws of gravity or momentum. And the rule of Quest Physics maybe goes like this: ‘If you are brave enough to leave behind everything familiar and comforting (which can be anything from your house to your bitter old resentments) and set out on a truth-seeking journey (either externally or internally), and if you are truly willing to regard everything that happens to you on that journey as a clue, and if you accept everyone you meet along the way as a teacher, and if you are prepared – most of all – to face (and forgive) some very difficult realities about yourself… then truth will not be withheld from you.’ Or so I’ve come to believe.

  1. What she speaks of in the paragraph is the natural unfoldment of human development. We can do it on our own or follow a specific path. The ancient occult schools gave directions on the path to enlightenment/awakening/the Real.
    Everything we do is part of that Way; everything that happens to us is part of that Way.
    We are all manifestations of the universe, so it can be no other way.
