to really live spiritually for the first time.
In our former states we convinced ourselves that any
true ideas we may have expressed or any good we might have done for
others was really our own – after all we were the ones thinking the
truth and doing the good!

things has now changed, we see the world differently. In the past, if
someone said something hurtful to us we might have condemned them but
now we are able to forgive them because we are able to care for them.
This complete turn around in the way we look at
things gives rise to wonderful new growth in our spiritual life.
