Take a look at a comic-book, and take a look at the people I describe here, and you'll see why I call them comic-book characters. And, I can almost guarantee that at least one of them has had an impact on your spiritual life. There's only one excption, but it's a common exception: you might have encountered a different comic-book character than I mentioned here. And why not? There are nearly infinite varieties to choose from.
Of course, recognizing them and their game is important. And so, I've introduced you to some of them. And please do not think that I'm leaning on any particular spiritual path, because I've found these comic-book characters in every spiritual path that I've explored.
And I know that I have not given you a really exhaustive listing, You'll have your own to add. And it's for a good reason.
By recognizing them when you see them, you can avoid joining them in the rut they have stuck themselves in.
