...it's hard for me to tolerate organized religion because I know where to go (within myself) to tap the spiritual reserve that keeps me going. I learned that when I was alone and on my knees. When this doesn't work I keep digging and searching, looking for inspiration. Usually I find my way back to my path and inspiration when I need it.
Personal freedom and perfection is about staying true to one's agreements. I try to be impeccable with my word, never take anything personally, never assume, and always do my best. Some days are better than others but I always wake up intending to stay righteous.
"Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, "I will never leave you or forsake you". So we may boldly say, "The Lord is my helper, I will not fear. What can man do to me?"

"There is a difference between knowing the path and walking the path"
