Expedition Delayed
Play • 11 min

The original purpose of religion was to bring sacredness to life. Imagine a time (whether prehistorical or transhistorical) when human beings lived moment-to-moment in the presence of the sacred. Religion was unnecessary. There was no separation between spirituality and life, no distinction between the sacred and the mundane, no division of the Godly and the worldly. When we lost the ongoing and immediate sense of sacredness, then we needed religion to bring us back to it. "Religion," after all, means "that which renews our connection."

Then suddenly it was the day of the first expedition.

I had dragged my feet enough…it was time to gear up and go.
Taking my lessons from the tree I knew the key was just to start. Cut the crap and start.
Get my sleeping bag and bed roll into the back of Wilfred (the willys jeep)…..grab my rifle, gas cooker, coffee pot and go.

I was done planning……

Its time for action.

But it was raining
