If we reduce the mystical Path ([Christian...]Kabbalistic, Taoist, etc) to nothing more then a way of becoming a more moral person, then we spit on the thousands of Sages and the millions of texts they spent their lives preparing for us. We wouldn't need all of these teachings for something so trivial to understand as building better moral and civic values, this only requires common sense.
The Path of Illumination is not a mere process of becoming a better thinker, a more ethical person or a civic leader, these things are side effects; the Path is about revealing the spiritual worlds concealed from us, to expand awareness and connection and grow to new degree of conscious evolution beyond the mere five senses, in fact it is to reveal a new higher sense of reality entirely.
If you're not aiming yourself toward this kind of illumination, you haven't understood what the [s]ages of the past are clearly telling us.
The All is not limited, It is infinite - so don't limit yourself or your experience. Demand more, push, grow, expand.
For those that scuff at this, and they are many, remember that their philosophies are produced by the very same limited mind that we're trying to move beyond. They have refused to Exodus from their ego thinking so now in their laziness they must also pull you down in fear and envy.
Don't fall for this - you are eternal and life is simply a game where you can learn to expand beyond the temporal, this is the only purpose of your life - to know (experience) more with each breath without limit.
You will become what you agree is possible; infinity is possible ?

Mark 12:30 -31
Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.' The second is this: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no commandment greater than these
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
Start your heart and thoughts in this place and move forward. See what's out there in the world for you!
