Many gauge their spiritual growth by what degree their actions conform to a doctrine or belief system. Others gauge their progress to what degree their practice of various principles or life style elements shows refinement or “maturity”.

The fundamental challenge of rectitude is reconciliation of the personal God with the collective demon. The point of my questioning is to illustrate the break between personal well being and consensus perception.
