While we don’t really understand spirituality, we can observe the changes that take place in people once a spiritual awakening has occurred. Over the last twenty years, I’ve seen many people change after such an experience. They are in a miserable rut. They are powerless over their inner compulsions and have no strength to fight back. They habitually act out self-destructive and life-threatening behavior. Then in a moment of agony, they call out, “God help me,” and somewhere deep in their heart they surrender. They admit they are powerless and they ask for help. Then, they feel willing to change, when before they were afraid. They feel as if they are at the start of a glorious new journey and happily move forward.
