Perhaps you can start with your children, Okeye - if you have any - and work your way up. Look for innocence, purity, sweetness...a sense of identification and oneness. Look for 'we' and 'ours' and not 'me' and mine.'
A tree is known by its branches. We cannot put a candle on a hill and not see light. Be wary of those who promise what seems too good to be true. The greatest Light is your own conscience, be true to this.
You will undoubtedly meet the false teachings, but be so busy working out your own salvation, that you will learn to miss the faults and be tolerant of them, within reason, when you see them.
Avoid loud and aggressive people, those who complain and never seem to be cheerful within themselves. Look for the child's smile. Avoid too much promises.
The spiritual life is actually quite simple and yet very difficult to live. If the teaching do not fit this paradox, then leave it alone. Strive...struggle..look for examples of Love, service, faith and compassion. Watch for empathy.
You will stumble. Be happy when it occurs. Pick yourself up and carry on. Never look back, nor focus on others but the Divine. Higher blessings.
