Folk and fairy tales are filled with lessons about the values of generosity, love, compassion, and caring for family, friends, the sick, and the elderly. These values are also evident in all the world religions. These are the virtues that matter in life and beyond. They are also the ones we are required to develop and refine on our spiritual journey.

In these stories, we are told that we must walk the path to spiritual maturity alone. However, that does not mean that we will be alone. On our journey we meet many people – all of whom matter in our spiritual path. The person who does something to upset you and the homeless person you pass on the street, are both angels in disguise to help you on your spiritual journey.
