To enter the area of the spiritual and the holy, the precinct of the sacred, requires a profound openness of mind and heart. We stand aware of our ignorance, willing to give up our agendas and follow the signs. Without this attitude of detachment, we may end up embarrassingly naive and get tripped up by some of the common traps of spirituality: blind allegiance, runaway enthusiasm, and poor choice of leaders and teachings.

Thomas Moore, The Soul's Religion
