This is just something I encountered recently, and thought it might be interesting to talk about. As a few of you might possibly know (or maybe not, since I've only been on the site for a short time) I'm pretty new to the Craft and even spirituality and religion in general. Before now, I never really challenged my own ideas on life, the universe and everything, and now that I am it feels as if I'm playing catch-up. It's not necessarily a bad thing, but it feels like there's so much to learn! A student's dream, but a perfectionist's nightmare, since its so difficult to take the time to focus carefully on each thing when you know there are a million and one other things that need to be done, or are on the agenda.
I was just wondering - did anyone else have that feeling of being ever-so-slightly overwhelmed and in awe at the beginning of their path? Do you still feel that way sometimes? And how did you deal with that?
Again, it's an enjoyable challenge, but I was simply curious about others' experience with the sheer amount of knowledge and questions to be absorbed within the spiritual path.
Thanks to any and all replies made :)
So Much To Learn!
