The sixth in a series of posts on companionship and the spiritual journey.   Please pass along to those you consider companions on your journey into the fullness of God. In the previous post in this series I told you that there are two paths into the presence of the God you seek: one path is the path of renunciation.  This is the path of the monk; and many have taken it.

The other is the path of loving another so deeply and completely that you are initiated into the love of God.

If you're reading this, you're likely on the second of these two paths.

So, keep this in mind . . .

Key to your spiritual work is your ability to enter more deeply and authentically into the relationships God has or will send your way. They will help you find the heart you’ll need to meet the God you seek. I’m not saying this path is easier than renunciation—it’s not. I’m just saying that it’s a genuine sacred path for folks like you and me. And frankly, history teaches us it’s the safer of the two ways to God.

To be continued . . .
