After finding a deeper spiritual understanding, we are often prone to share our new path. The path may not actually be new, only new to us. There are those who, after giving up an addiction such as smoking, become the loudest advocates for quitting. So much so, that their behavior offends those they would help. Avoid lecturing and “should-ing.” Present your story simply as "This is what I experienced..." and leave it at that. Opening to new forms of spirituality intimidates many. Allow them space to discover what resonates with them in their own time.
Also remember that like attracts like. When you grow spiritually you will shine brighter, and you will naturally attract others to your light. You may not run with the same crowd, but you will gather those around you who love and respect the new person you’ve become. Give people the freedom to grow and heal at their own pace, not yours.
Being pushy, especially with our religious beliefs, usually results in more harm than good. We don’t want to alienate the people we want to help, so respect the wishes of those who don’t want to hear your message. If and when the time is right, you will be able to share.
