As you explore the different spiritual practices, don't fear the possibility that you may expose yourself to something "bad" or "evil." Place the energy of your heart and mind on the goodness, love, and light that you wish to bring into your life and the world.

Let your practice keep you connected to all the goodness and love you know. With open-mindedness, guidance, and support, you'll navigate the surprises and challenges that come up along the way. If you have a clear intention of connecting to the highest Source and Light, darkness will find no place to take hold.
