Do Not Conform Blindly
Conformity to a sick society is a sickness. By killing morals and replacing them with science, the pathway to the Absolute Spirit becomes a blind alley. The Heartwood Path seeks to re-illuminate the path to the Absolute Spirit, without loosing the benefits of science.
The Heartwood Path ought to be viewed as an ally to both religion and science. There can be no integrity without both.
By furthering the purpose of the Heartwood Path—which is “the development of integrity”—pilgrims on the path can perhaps avoid some of the errors previous reformers of Modernity have made by learning from their mistakes. Learn from yours too.
When working on reform, prepare to be vilified, especially if you make trouble. Society seeks to put limits on personal liberty.
Do not concern yourself with fitting in to the expectations of others. Prepare yourself for the misunderstanding and wrath that will likely come your way if you are making trouble while seeking needed reforms. There is genius in everyone. Give other nonconformists and reformers words of encouragement. They too are likely to be experiencing the social burdens of being living agitators. By answering the questions in the following activity you will determine, by implication, ways to become a nonconformist.
