By "on path" I mean that I've been in a spiritual and developmental frame of mind over a longer period of time. When I've been wasting my life for a couple of months, it really doesn't matter how deep into meditation I am (and it is harder for me to deeply meditate when I've been living unconsciously), the Crone will show up and knock me around a bit.
Also, Vanilla and Luca, I've noticed that it isn't just Christianity that holds a monopoly on putting dogma before spirituality. I can say from experience that there are Wiccans out there who give Fred Phelps a good name... It depends on the individuals willingness to ask themselves if something leads to peace, or if it will cause suffering.
