Shifting taking place, and as things get clear, my normal response is to plow ahead, headlong. But these things take time, don't they? Like a marriage, there is a long engagement time. Partly that is for planning for the wedding. But partly it is to get used to the new reality that once those vows are spoken, you are transformed. You are different. You will never be single again.
So it seems to be with all spiritual landmarks.
