One important lesson for everyone on the spiritual path to learn is about discernment and truth. The purpose of life is soul growth, and to become the master of your own life. Everyone is unique and different from each other. One man’s truth is another man’s folly. How can you become the master of your own life, if you do not follow your own truth? Discernment means that you are honest with yourself and others. To understand what discernment is, is to be truthful to yourself, to not be afraid of following your heart and inner guidance. Discernment allows you to be the person you are meant to be, instead of becoming like a sheep, following after the truth of someone else.
