Succeeding in a spiritual quest demands at least four basic qualities: a strong motivation, total sincerity, a lucid and firm intention and, as in most other endeavors in life, great (and sometimes immense) perseverance, as the seeker will almost invariably encounter important trials (which are necessary to test us). Grit will be helpful in such moments!
Excerpt from 365 Blessings to Heal Myself and the World being published by John Hunt.
Total consecration, an absolute and firm intention which no worldly noises can distract, is indispensable for anyone wishing to attain significant results on the spiritual path. The latter is neither for amateurs nor dilettantes. The same applies to the practice of blessing where, as in all areas of life one of the universe’s fundamental laws is in effect: one reaps what one sows.
