What's the beginning and end of the spiritual journey?
It's fair to say there's no end, no beginning, no real journey, so long we're dominated by ego-mind's desires and directives.
So no spiritual movement in our present state?
It's not a question of movement, more a matter of being adrift so long we're moved about by our reactions to life's currents.
Sounds like drifting downstream..
Or just a constant, unending flow; repetitive movements through lifetimes that gradually wear away our resistances to real change.
Leading to a beginning then.
Without a center there's nothing to journey to. Without the Beloved's presence there's no way to light that path. Once true relation to the Beloved begins, real effacement begins. The the path begins to follow us on our way to where the center is really everywhere.
