On your spiritual journey, you will find boundaries. Or at least, you will find them if your journey is to take you where you need to be.
Some boundaries are there to be crossed. And, in fact, some boundaries must be crossed if you are going to get anywhere that is worth going to. They are the same boundaries which hold so many others back from having a real spiritual journey.
There are other boundaries which must not be crossed. Why? Because if you cross them, you might find yourself distracted or on a "side-trip" which will prove either non-productive or even counter-productive. But, these boundaries can move over time. In the same way that you don't go to the high-dive on your very first swimming lesson, but you might well do so when you've become a more accomplished swimmer, some boundaries do move. But, you need to know how to define those boundaries.
Once you know the boundaries, you can chart the course of your spiritual journey so that you can seek what you need and want, and get there! And that path is moving forward, but on the path that is right for you.
