Will You Say Yes to the Grand Adventure of Life?

But the story of meaningful change looks less like the triumphant sprinter at the finish line and more like the wounded explorer lost in an epic adventure.

There’s a terrible hyper-Calvinistic conceit that has filtered into non-religious elements of Western culture, which teaches that the moment of either reckoning or completion is prior in importance to the journey. The new birth is of a moment, and this moment is all that matters; the entire trajectory of one’s body and soul is disregarded.

Ultimately, this results in a contempt for self-cultivation and for growth, self-realization, and any kind of meaningful flourishing.
