A spiritual pathway has to do with the way we most naturally sense God's presence and experience spiritual growth.  We all have at least one pathway that comes most easily to us.  We also have one or two that are the most unnatural and require a lot of stretching for us to pursue.

There is enormous freedom in identifying and embracing your spiritual pathway.  It is a little like realizing that if you're an introvert, you don't have to work as a salesman; you could get a job in a library.  You don't have to beat yourself up or feel guilty because of what is not your pathway.  You can focus on relating to God in that way for which you were made, while at the same time recognizing your need to stretch in certain areas that don't come as naturally.
