There are so many different ideas about belief in the world of the spiritual that at times it can become confusing and the questing soul can be led down many false trails before they can find a path with which they are comfortable.
That soul needs to stop in their tracks and assert to themselves exactly what they do or do not believe. this does not lead to intolerance of those who do not believe as they do, in fact it should make them want to investigate even further into alternate beliefs to make sure they are not missing out on something that they may find vital to them. Simply dumping the fetters of religion, as I did, and breaking free into a world of spirituality could be a beginning. To introduce rules into a persons spiritual being is to introduce the fetters that turn spirituality into religion. Be very cautious of accepting anything that hints at having rules, no matter how sublimely those rules are applied. There are no rules to break, the only rules you need to follow are those you make for YOURSELF. surely it is time for all to realise that you can have a spiritual life without having, ANY RULES TO BREAK!

Chris Thomas from his book "The Journey Home" page 53/54.
As with all things, truth has an energy which creates a resonance within the idividual. Whilst every person has their own truth and their own reality, if as an individual you do not recognise a truth that is acceptable, then reject all or part of that which has been presented to you and continue with your own personal search for a truth that is found to be acceptable. What is important is that you do begin your search and do not rely on others to find the truth for you. There are no absolute rules any longer, niether are there any easy answers. Each individual must make up their own mind and find their own truth. THE INDIVIDUAL HAS TOTAL RESPONSIBILITY FOR THEMSELVES.
