– Heartwood Path Waypoint 33 –
Grow Up Fully
The goal of traversing the Heartwood Path ought not to be achieving pre-given rules of perfection. There is no standard of perfection along the Heartwood Path. The goal ought to be to become impeccably aware of one’s own feelings, thoughts, and actions so that one can find harmony, communicate with nature, be in a state of oneness with life, and use one’s own individual gifts to serve others effectively and enduringly.
Like life, going down the Heartwood Path is not an experience that is selected and made. Rather, life and the Heartwood Path are experiences that involve ongoing selecting and making. The Heartwood Path is not about reaching a final conclusion. It is, however, about helping humans in their efforts to work towards spiritual maturity. This path is necessary because, spiritually speaking, most people never develop into higher stages of maturity. Speaking plainly, the Heartwood Path does not make people perfect, not in any final sense; but it does help them grow-up more fully.
The Earth will never be finally saved, nor will you ever be made conclusively perfect. Still, working persistently towards both ends is the noblest of occupations. I cannot tell you where you are going, but this book will tell you what to pack.
