Why do most Gurus fall from Grace? For the same reasons we do. We live in an evolutionary world. A world of growth out of darkness and into greater expressions of Divinity. When we do not understand the importance of shadow work on the spiritual path, we can cause ourselves and those around us great pain and actually stall our own evolution. Our “shadow” is the evolving edge of both our human and Divine expression. The shadow arises when our unconscious mind tries to slow down, ignore or avoid growth on the path. Because God is both Absolute and ever evolving in form, if we ignore our shadow or our growing edge, we will fall from Grace and be forced to face that which we do not want to see. Therefore, in order to truly be free in an embodied way, we must be aware of and understand how to work with our personal, relational, professional, and collective shadow.
