Many speak of the spiritual exploration as a journey – where the destination is unimportant, but the journey to the destination fosters growth. I often think this is the same as when we look forward to something like a holiday (Christmas springs to mind) – the build up, the planning and the anticipation can be more fulfilling then the actual encounter.
T.S Elliot thinks so…
We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.
Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.
What we call the beginning is often the end. And to make an end is to make a beginning. The end is where we start from.
Are we on a road to nowhere or are we now here?
