Dear Friends,

A bird needs two wings to fly. With one wing, the bird will not be able to fly. Because there is no balance. To create balance, the bird needs two wings.

In the same way, a person needs two spiritual qualities to progress in the spiritual journey. They are rational faith/conviction and wisdom/insight. A person has to develop faith as well as wisdom to advance in the journey. If a person has both faith and wisdom, he/she will be able to achieve the spiritual goal. Faith alone cannot create the spiritual goal. Also, wisdom alone cannot create the spiritual goal. There should be a balance between faith and wisdom. These two spiritual qualities are the two wings for spiritual advancement!

With many blessings !
