“The inner meaning of life does not readily reveal itself; it must be searched for. Such a search is the Quest.
When a man begins to seek out his real nature, to find the truth of his real being, he begins to follow the Quest.
The Quest is a veritable re-education of the self, leading in turn to a noble transcendence of the self.
Some come to the truth in a roundabout way.
The Quest is direct.
The Quest is spiritual mountaineering.”
Paul Brunton taken from “Yoga Gems” edited by Georg Feuerstein
When I read this I like the idea of spiritual mountaineering. A direct route for the courageous!
And yet we can also come to the truth in a round about way.
It is there for each and every one of us … one step at a time.
