Aidan recently visited a pow wow, a Native American gathering hosted by a nation which has some major significance for his wife. More than a vacation, the pow wow proved to be a profound experience, loaded with learning!
What has that to do with you? Part of your spiritual learning could very well include visits to other spiritual paths - not to stay, but to experience them and to see what they might have to teach. This is nothing like so-called "cafeteria religion" in which someone takes only what they have an appetite for, and perhaps that might change from one day to the next - this is a quest to see what another path might be able to teach which might be hiding too subtly in your own path. This is not the first such visit that Aidan has made, and he looks forward to more.
Of course, like visits to fellow mortals on the material plane, there is a right way to visit.
Most such visits will include some learning, and included in that learning might be some basic truths. That's discussed here, too. Unfortunately, there are those who don't appear to know such basic truths - and then we all lose as a result.
But their is a way to visit another spiritual path - and come home to your own path with something very valuable.
