If you are going to question your beliefs, it is important that you really want to know the truth. This may not always be the case, often we are more interested in safety, comfort, or pleasure. Your willingness to explore will directly impact the depth of your discovery. our inquiry is most potent when it is full-hearted. As you enter this self-investigation, it is important to ask yourself how much you are interested in the truth ant to be honest about your answer. Deep inquiry strips away layers of falsehood.

We need more than our weekends, more than just a Sunday retreat, to devote our entire life to a progression that has no limit or end to its wholesome growth.  ~Marsha Sinetar
