Before we see who we really are,we read the scriptures to see if we have got it right (‘it’ being our own spiritual experience),but after we see who we really are,we read the scriptures to see if they have got it right! Making the point that true spirituality is concerned with the question of our fundamental identity.Ultimately only I am the authority on what it’s like to be me,and only you are the authority on what it’s like to be you.Scriptures can be useful guides,but their validity should be measured against our experience,not the other way
