It is never too late to start the spiritual journey, or to start over, and it is worth starting over any number of times... What God is after are our good intentions and our efforts. The contemplative journey, because it involves the purification of the unconscious, is not a magic carpet to bliss. It is an exercise of letting go of the false self, a humbling process, because it is the only self we know.
Thomas Keating, The Human Condition
