We are not self sufficient.

Spirituality is the quest for a connection with God, the Divine Creator, or the higher power that put us here. Spirituality is a lifelong journey that cannot find completion until we leave this life and attain full communion with the deity of our quest. Prayer is an important way that we construct this relationship with God or higher power. We all think that we know how to talk to God, but we do not always know how to listen to him. My spiritual journey has taken me from a reliance on self to awareness that self is not sufficient. It has taken me from a belief that success is related to power and acquisition to the knowledge that success is related to my connection with God and knowing that everything good comes from God.
Life is a journey and we are all travelers. The spiritual journey is a quest to find the meaning to life, the secrets of creation, or to connect with the higher power that put us here. My spiritual journey has put me on a road that has taken me from the depths of despair and desolation to the heights of joy and fulfillment. I have not found God, because he was not lost, but I have found my path to God. God had been patiently waiting for me to allow him to lead me and in the passage of time, I have become trusting enough to allow him to do so.

"Be still and know that I am God"(Psalm 46:10)
