There is none, sorry. No matter what you’ve been told, promised or believe. There is no spiritual Willy Wonka Golden Ticket to bring any of us the
full distance on our Spiritual journey.
That would really make it easier though, wouldn’t it? Then it would just be a matter of finding it - the right meditation, the right ritual, the
right book, the right religion, the right knowledge, the right technique, the right person to tell you the right thing.
Yet as a spiritual seeker I have spent much of the last decade or so looking at all these tools and more for what they might offer. And I have found
much. But all these things are ultimately that - just tools. In fact, there are other critical tools needed as well - the ones frequently overlooked
by the Golden Ticket Seeker. These include dedication, patience, and a willingness to examine yourself, your ego, your challenges/opportunities,
your choices and your perceptions.
It is not a path of convenience or instant results. It is sometimes a bending path, one that brings you along the way, but rarely in the manner in
which you imagined. I have been on this path and journey for some time. I have come far in some respects, yet still have plenty of journey and
summits that lie ahead of me.
What tools can do is point the way. The way within. This is where the answers lie. This is where you find that which you seek. A tool is simply an
aid in focus - everything actually comes from and through the mind, and its intent.
There are so many out there who seem to think that the answer lies in something outside of themselves - and they are looking, searching, asking,
begging the Universe for answers.
Seek wisdom, seek knowledge, seek tools - but do so with the knowledge that they only assist in the discovery of your real power - and the gateway to
it, right there, within your focused mind.
