The work we do has many different components. We work on understanding and realization, generating experiences, penetrating obstacles, and resolving issues. We work on doing and development, living what we understand. We continue to refine the work we do and to introduce new elements to balance the development of the soul. If we evolve without balance, our spiritual development moves in tangents rather than straightforward, moves coincidentally rather than logically. We could develop tangentially and still experience all kinds of wonderful things, but without the balance of mature development, there will be no meaningful transformation.

It is easy to think that our limitations are caused by difficult things that have happened to us in the past; but actually the simple fact that we have had past experience creates obstacles. The mind solidifies our experience into notions of what we are and what the world is in such a way that we see reality through the veil of the past. This veil is penetrated as we awaken to our true nature.
