On the one hand I would like to stay safe. I've had quite a bit of baloney offered to me, some well-meaning and ignorant, some blatantly attempting to further an agenda. It's made me gun-shy, so to speak. However, remaining in safe mode (as on one's computer) is a grey existence, and one I've grown weary of. How does one appropriately plunge into the ocean of spirituality without being eaten by the sharks?
