I love the metaphor of the "spiritual journey," for it helps us remember that we are always - for all eternity - simply "on the way." There IS no final enlightenment, revelation, salvation or transformation, for each milestone we reach is simply the beginning point for a deeper realization of how far we have to go. It is this insight that fosters true humility. Because we are ALWAYS on the way, we can therefore REST in the moment. For - since the journey is endless - every step is also an embodiment of the most beautiful realization of enlightenment. In this sense, the process is also the goal.
