We care too much about the wrong things, and we care too little about the right things. Consider what you care about, and what you don't care about. All of the time.
We are on our own. No one can do it for us. Teachers, at best, can only offer their experience as a guide, and, at worst, can only tell us what someone told someone who told someone who told someone... who told them. Too many spiritual guides and religious leaders only know what they got from someone else. Ask around: "What do you know of God that you did not get from some other source, including the Bible?" Ask the people who claim to know more than you know, "What do you know of God that you discovered on your own, without help from anyone else?" The old Taoist Masters cut to the chase, saying: "Seek the Source in the Silence! Live with sincerity and spontaneity out of your own sense of what is called for in each situation as it arises, incarnating/expressing/exhibiting the face that was yours before your grandparents were born!" No theology there! No doctrine there! No creedal formula there! Only personal experience at the core! And your personal experience will be different from everyone else's! Their slogans, for example, "Eat when hungry, rest when tired," mean "Live out of your own sense of what needs to be done in each situation as it arises!" True to our own sense of what needs to be done, we gradually learn to read our situations with a perceptive eye, and get responding to them appropriately down to a fine art-- and no one can tell us how to do that! So, "Get in there and do your thing, and let the outcome be your teacher in knowing how to apply your thing to each situation as it arises!" That is all there is to it!
