Brush yourself off and get right back up. Much to do ... rethink, reevaluate, adjust, redo ... until you get it right (or are at least satisifed that you have).

Life lessons are a daily process, each day is new and allows do-overs. No guarantee how many you'll get, however, so get started OK?

Mieke B, Your head is stuffed full of religious and spiritual stereotypes, yet common sense should tell you that not ALL religious and spiritual people behave as you and other "I don't believe in anything supernatural" users of that very same script always repeat. By useing that as an excuse to shut out the intelligent energies of the 'supernatureal' you will miss incredable things.Religious are just human mind's attempts to explain what they've encountered. It doesn't mean it is at all accurate but people get attatched to viewpoints and fight over them.The Spiritual Impulse is a normal desire to understand what is beyond the human ego's ability to fully grasp, untill it reaches out past it's own mind loops. Even ethics and philosophy are limited and often based on flawed premises. We don't grow if we never reach out beyond the old trueths. But oh my! What a journey!

You can't fall off a spiritual path.

I consider myself more spiritual then religious.

Seems I've been in the process of veering for quite some time having found organized Christianity too rigid and very untruthful, especially when it comes to many things in, or Not in, the Bible. Now I find myself looking - but not sure for what. People here are right, it's my journey. Thanks for the video but it just wasn't me.

My love of the earth and all that inhabits it is about as spiritual as I get :) When I have a lot on my mind or a heavy heart, I find walking through the forest or sitting by the stormy lake tends to give me perspective on the size of my problems in the grand scheme of things.

Falling off sounds so final.. I do at times take a side path but find there was a lesson I needed there. So forgive yourself and look at it as just another lesson.
Myself I do not care for these videos I would rather read whatever insight is offered.
As to all commenting, everyone is right, it is your journey with no 'right' or 'wrong' your road to travel.Tthe straight and narrow will not necessarily make it any easier.
