The doorway of study is something that helps us in our discovery of self. If we don’t take any time to study the wisdom that has been shared by others, we can become trapped in our own limited beliefs. Learning what others have shared about spirituality opens our minds and sometimes leads us deeper into our own understandings. There is so much wisdom that has been passed down through the ages that to reject what has been shared would be a loss.
In our study I also feel its important to look at the whole picture. Often groups only stay within the confines of their own circles. This too can become a limitation in our growth. Reaching out to other systems of thought and worship has its place in our discovery of what self.
