(Wrong button previous post, sorry) There are many paths to get to the top of the mountain, but if you keep jumping from one path to another one, you'll never get anywhere.
Some people can reconcile following more than one path, but they are few that can actually do it. We all "believe" that the end up to the same place. But how many have reached the top and can actually tell us that any path will get us to the same place? My view is, take your path and follow it, regardless of anyone else is saying. This may fall into an organized group, it may not. Serge > > You know what else is cool, is that in Hebrew the > word for Spirit > is > > the same for the word for "wind."
