Understanding the Nature of Risk on the Spiritual Path
originally found via Wake Up World
There will come a point on the spiritual path where there’s nothing for it but to risk all. It’s when you hit the edge of ultimate freedom — to begin to walk the blade edge of life.
The soul wants to flow as freedom. It doesn’t calculate what is logical, safe, or will gain the best practical outcome. It is yearning to be forged by the crucible of life into something immortal, beyond fear and limitation. Not that the soul doesn’t have boundaries, not that it doesn’t blend into rigid realities, it does. But it’s purpose is to be the expression of the unbounded, unconstrained, fearlessness of the One. That’s why there will come a point on the path to risk all.
