THOUGHTS ON EXPLORATION

I confess that I really don’t always understand the precise nature of what I am doing, nor is it necessarily productive to learn more. What counts is that the journey continue in a manner that surprises us, that challenges and enlightens us, allowing us to grow in new ways without inflicting unnecessary suffering on ourselves or others. Certainly success and setbacks related to positive and negative conceptual experiences must be acknowledged, but we must be attentive and not dwell on them. They must take second place to the adventure of discovery. What is owed is known and can never be as rich in potential as that vast wellspring of experiences as yet unexplored. The inevitability of this journey is a given with which we learn to live.
