So at the beginning of the journey, you are very eclectic… a little of this and that. A Buddhist meditation to quieten the mind. Some Sufi dancing to get the body and heart open. Some Tai Chi when the body’s not balanced. Some massage to loosen it all up. A mantra as a centring device. Many methods to choose from the spiritual smorgasborg.
But there comes the point where the pull in you starts to draw you in the direction of what is called one lineage or another. These could also be called ways or aspects of God; they all go to God, but they all come through slightly different routes. They are your dharmic path.
