It doesn't take much to figure out what the title is talking
about. Many will talk about having a goal, but how many are
willing to do the work to get there? Here in the US, it's
easy enough to see men walking around in what appear to be Army
battle uniforms, but they aren't soldiers and never have
been! Some, in fact, would probably not survive a genuine
drill sergeant! Where religion and the spiritual are
concerned, the matter is complicated by the fact that not all paths
have well-defined paths of training and formation.
For some, this means concern over finding themselves under the guidance of a wanna-be or worse. For those who do intend to function as priest, priestess or other clergy, the question is how to avoid being perceived as "self-styled".
