A Bit of New Age Humor: Manifesting the Parking Place:
John was frantic as he drove down the street, because he had an important meeting and couldn't find a parking place. Looking up toward heaven, he said "Lord, take pity on me. If you find me a parking place I will go to church every Sunday for the rest of my life and give up whiskey."Miraculously, a parking place appeared. John looked up again and said, "Never mind. I found one."
Important Spiritual Choices - Discernment is Vital
Selections for this chapter are based upon my estimate of how important the ideas are for the most New Age people. I also offer many other spiritual ideas and choices in later chapters. They might be just as valuable for you as the ideas and choices presented in this chapter.
In my opinion, the purpose of your spirituality is your most important spiritual choice. If you choose purpose carelessly, I believe you will experience many life detours, some pleasant and many that are distasteful. If you choose wisely, I think your path to God-Tao will be expeditious.
If you disagree significantly with my earlier recommendation of the best spiritual purpose being alignment with your soul, then I strongly recommend that you read the parts of this chapter applicable to your favorite spiritual purpose to discover the ways it might be causing you major life detours.
