If Life is a journey, we can explore the course of the river out towards the sea, or trek back along it in search of the headwaters or the ultimate source. Many religions speak of this latter in terms of metaphor and imagery – Nature, God, Goddess, Spirit, the Absolute, the Atman, the Tao, the Buddha-nature from which all things arise, but we may get swamped or bogged down with a flood of traditional doctrines and teaching, possibly now out of date or inappropriate to modern life, and fear sinking beneath the storm of differing opinions! So, is it possible for us to plumb the well of Truth for ourselves in quiet solitude, drawing on a spring of wisdom welling up in our hearts to eternal life? As the Summer weather and the political climate outside heat up, it may be nice to enjoy a cool draught in shady seclusion.
