"Enlightened Masters" and Your Spiritual Life


Our world can become astonishingly complex, and earth can be a very confusing place. Also, the "interior child" within is always looking for someone to "parent" her-- to serve as a substitute "mommy" or "daddy." This is an unhealthy attitude.

Why? Because, as we enter adulthood, as psychologically maturing individuals, we are supposed to "internalize" our parents. In other words, in psychological health and wellness, we are supposed to "grow into" our own interior "parents," and to abandon all exterior parental-figures. This is precisely what happens in healthy development, as we learn to live out of the interior "adult" mode.

Some people, for various reasons, never really mature normally, never get in touch with, or live from, the interior "adult."
