Enchanting as it may sound to be on a quest of sorts, in one very particular (sometimes frustrating, sometimes lonely, sometimes disorienting) way, calling our spiritual journey a ‘journey’ is radically deceptive.
The thing about a journey is it implies that we are headed toward a particular destination and that getting ‘there’ takes some amount of time.
Probably a long time.
Like the excruciating amount of time it would take to – oh, say – walk barefoot across a barren desert or grow a beard down to your ankles.
Like a lifetime.
