there is no progress
only repetition of what has come before. As the wise ones teach, each starts from the same begining. There is no spiritual progress. We each start from the same place as our ancestors started from. Thus, there is nothing new, for each must walk the path by him/herself. What are you looking for? All can be found in any era, any genre. The only question that remains is which era, which genre speaks to you, now, where you are? All speak the truth, only from different perspectives. All view the same, only from differnet posts. Which speaks to you most, from which do you learn most of your own existance? This is the only question.
