Shall I not follow in the footsteps of my predecessors? I shall indeed use the old road, but if I find one that makes a shorter cut and is smoother to travel, I shall open the new road. Men who have made these discoveries before us are not our masters, but our guides. Truth lies open for all; it has not yet been monopolized. And there is plenty of it left even for posterity to discover.


The above quote synthezises my personal view of spirituality. No person should be considered a master. The only master is the awakening one within and it may reveal a path contrary to great teachers of the past, yet my road is for me and their road theirs. Each must forge the path in solitude and not by dogma or obedience.
