Excerpted from a past Unity Magazine® column "The Spiritual Journey."
The spiritual journey, like all journeys, begins with a single step. Oddly, that which leads to the highest and most fulfilling life often begins with discontent. We know that life can be more than it seems to be; therefore, we are motivated, but often not to live a spiritual life. Our initial motivation is to dispel pain. If the pain subsides, we breathe a sigh of relief and forget the spiritual search, but in a short period of time the discontent returns, and we seek again.
