Spiritual Bondage

I am afraid again.

It feels like there is a battle going on for my soul.

Part of me wants to be free, and another part wants to run back to the confines of religion. The part of me that wants to be free, is the part that has discovered new spiritual territory and feels at home there. The other part of me is telling me that it could be evil disguised as good, trying to trap me.

I would of course find comfort in hearing from anyone who has gone through these feelings on their journeys. If you're more comfortable writing in private, you can send me an email.

These feelings have been inspired by a mysterious email I've received that have me concerned.

Siegfried,

Not to worry. I didn't have that in mind.

But I would like to be a servant. Remember, "Mastery in Servitude". That's the symbol on the Meher Baba books that I liked.
