The spiritual life itself is an experiment. It is not a path of certainty. It is a voyage
of discovery, needing humility; a willingness to be open and a recognition of our
limitations. It is not a straight line, but has many twists and turns. Its
authenticity is tested out in the experience of everyday life and may be both
challenged and affirmed by those people one meets when undertaking.
