"Our spiritual awareness seems to be given to us in order to hone in on and not lose touch with that spark of pure truth at the core of our being, from which both the true compass track of our life and our existential conviction of belonging emanate. That is what the magnetic pull is all about.
And as we learn gradually to trust it and let it draw us along, we discover that those core fears of the egoic level -- that something terrible can happen to us, that we can fall out of God or suffer irreparable harm -- do not compute in these deeper waters of being. Try as we will, we simply cannot find them there. They can only affect us when we are at the surface of ourselves."
