Lost but desiring to be found. Lonely but craving community; Whether by choice or force, the Spiritual Warrior deeply yearns for the familiar and predictable. It haunts him though he fights it. It maddens him while also soothing some part that is not conscious, but innately human at the core. And the one who finds himself in such a position is on a quest for meaning. He thirsts for healing. His “fix” is on finding wholeness and inner peace.
Where and how do we find “home?” “Home” is where we often discover who we are and why we live. “Home” is more than your memories of growing up. This almost sacred “space” goes with you.
Inner wars often bring casualties and MIA’s. But where are these “missing” ones? And do we touch them through cognitively understanding or emotional experiencing? For the answer is a step closer to finding “home.”
Many desire to “quest” but forget their way; lose the path. The path often becomes confusing because we look so intently at the rocks on the trail that we can no longer experience the soil that holds them. In this vain, is my path to spiritual experience one of light and enlightenment or one of darkness and struggle? Perhaps, it is because we only ask this one question that we fail to make the journey “home.”
