The Grandest Adventure
Deep inside is the urge to discover the unknown--whether physical, intellectual or spiritual in nature. It starts with dreams of wide open space. Akin to Hatsheput, Alexander the Great, Marco Polo, Ferdinand Magellan, Meriwether Clark, Ernest Shackleton and Neil Armstrong. But when the wide open physical space is no more, humans turn toward the vast unknown within the intellect and spirituality. Akin to a blank canvas, mound of clay, chunk of marble, stretch of prairie, mountain top, or meditation practice, regardless of the platform, the urge to discover the unknown must be soothed. However, as history has been loath to say, the grand adventure isn’t about finding, claiming, owning, devouring but about allowing the urge a place to swell, cascade and gently flow in a co-creative process. It is an urge to be part of, and intimately connected to, something as much or more than the Self.
