Your path doesn't look like any other.
There are many teachers that will try to tell you how to be and what to do. But you are already sacred and whole. Any way that you recognize and embrace that is yours and yours alone.
You may use some or all of the tools someone suggests but you are Life individualized.
Even ancient paths that many have walked before are still individual paths.
Where you are now is the fullness of Life.
This is your path as unique and individual as you are. So listen to the books and try the practices of your teachers and see what fits and what doesn't. And create your own practices and live your own life. Change the rules if necessary.
You are not Jello! You will never fit into a mold!
Love to all
