How do we find our hidden capacities

So in the last post we talked about discovering our hidden capacities through love, and to come in contact with our substantial being by means of our heart. In other words a method which is not taught in the regular schools. It could be described as a path, an art of life that demands determination, trust, endurance and patience.

So in order to travel on this path you have to be well equipped and well trained. On top of this, the road may lead though dark and unknown territory which is why it’s important to have the help of a faithful guide.

It could be compared with learning a new language. First you have to find out a method which suits you the best and after you have to go in search of a school which this method is being taught. It’s important to remember that you need to be motivated and seriously determined to reach your goal. But also it depends on the methods that are applied, the capacities of the teacher and of course your own will.

When choosing a school, one has to be critical and verify everything thoroughly because if one starts badly prepared conflicts may easily  happen. Not only conflicts within yourself, but also conflict with others which create a negative atmosphere around you. Of course when you set off on the path you will be confronted. This is why you need to be sure about the choise and eliminate the problems you have within yourself before you start.
