THE MYSTERY AND A NEWNESS TO LIFE AND CONSCIOUSNESS

When one steps outside the ready made explanations used to define what life is all about, the narratives that were waiting for us when we arrived in this place, life...being here...takes on a strange newness. Even within all the different narratives that exist from culture to culture, tribe to tribe, if one allows themselves the freedom to listen with an open mind and heart to the narratives different than the one they are acquainted, life really does begin to seem mysteriously wonderful and maybe even frightful. 

But what if you went even a bit farther? What if you were to consider stepping outside all the explanations, instead of what is most often practiced....jumping from/abandoning one, only to swap it for another one that is already wrapped up, defined, unriddled?

What if you really were to give yourself the gift, as best you can, of stepping out into the unknown....and setting out on your own journey of discovery?
