Spiritual development has its emphasis on Mindfulness--slowing down in order to delineate each step of the process. Slowing down helps you understand what you're doing at any given moment in order to be able to repeat the process whenever you want. And to help your

While experiencing this journey, it will help if you chart your course--when Lewis & Clark mapped America's unexplored west, they had Native American Indian guides, but no charts to show them the way. They saw the American West through their eyes and perceptions, something quite different from their guides' perceptions. They based their decisions not only on their guides' information and advice, but also upon their own intuitive sense of what was important for their journey.

A crucial element of Spiritual growth and development is the creation of a map of your Journey. You will not only get a glimpse of where you're going, but where you've been and, even more importantly, where you are right now.
Oftentimes we are so focused on the goal we envision at the end of our Journey, that we forget that
the Journey IS the goal--it is ever changing, ever shifting. In other words, we never really "get" there; we're never really "done." Rather, our goal is a momentary one: Mindfulness
of the NOW.
