It is not enough to believe in God. It is not enough to adhere to the teachings of your tradition, if you have a tradition. It is not enough to follow the prescriptions given in the scriptures.
These things do not guarantee the true life. These things do not guarantee that you are in resonance with the Power and the Presence that has brought you into the world. This does not assure that you will discover the greater purpose that has brought you here or those key relationships that will make the experience, the expression and the acceptance of this purpose possible.
For God does not work in the world through scriptures as much as God works through individuals from the inside out. It is this great service, within which you will play a small but necessary part, that will make all the difference in the quality and direction of your life and the meaning of your relationships and your restoration as an individual.
