Forward Integration: When we live our spiritual beliefs in a way that our lifestyle changes to accommodate the changes in belief. This allows for more independent, love, sharing, oneness and freedom. There is less blame of our government for the problems of the world and more responsibility.
Backward Integration: When spiritual beliefs are packaged around our lifestyle and integrated into them in ways that our lifestyle do not change. Our spirituality revolves around our lifestyles in a way that we remain hung up on our obsessions, addictions, attachments, definitions and we are stuck in the rat race trying to find our worth externally. We seek external fixes and blame our governments,expecting (like children) that these external parents will take care of everything for us.
