Pilgrim Path

This blog is the work of a seeker and poet. Walking stick in hand, I head out into the world, not of the world, but in the world. My words and my friends carry me along and light the pilgrim path of spiritual journeys.

At a recent Interspiritual men's retreat, 2 young men experienced a rite of passage into adolescence. As part of this process, they went on a 3 hour Vision Quest. Denied lunch, they sat in the January weather in Woodstock, Illinois, contemplating great life questions in the context of the liminal space they inhabited - no longer children, not quite men. Later in the evening, one of the young men, Brian, shared with us what he learned from this experience. Out of the mouth of Brian the Younger came this superb Zen observation:

"If you don't move, you get cold." - Brian, age 13
