To paraphrase Richard Bach, "Everything on this website may be wrong."
This mystic's opinions are subject to change without notice. On his death bed the Buddha said, "Be a light unto yourself." Please, please, please don't accept anything I say without first checking with your own inner guidance.
I heard a Native American speaker share that while nature's seasons were every year, a human beings seasons were every four years. I am reminded that all of us have clay feet. That none of us is well. My greatest character defect is spiritual pride. As usual, the best I can do is turn a humiliating experience into a humbling experience. Each time I emerge with a little more experience to share and a little less advice to give.
