Spiritual Experiences. In time and place and beyond time and place

Spiritual seeking matters. It is a challenging way of life. Some may claim they know the end of the seeker. Knowing the end of the seeker does not mean resigning oneself to a mundane way of life.
The end of ego in ‘I’ and ‘my’ of the seeker reveals endless opportunity for extra-ordinary discoveries.
