As Christians, we were taught that the bible was the ultimate truth and the authority that we should defer to if we had questions and doubts. We were taught it has ALL the answers. It can be disconcerting once you set out on a spiritual path to trust yourself as the authority in your life.
But that’s what spirituality is about, learning to trust your inner being and divine connection for your truths.
The exact reason why the church invented the Bible was because they didn’t want people espousing something different from the accepted truth given by the pope, bishops, and later the protestant pastors and preachers.
If you are new to this spiritual journey, your truth is within you. Your unique experience is the most relevant experience in the universe. It is valid to stand alone from others.
