A life of courage, joy and independence.
Fear is a useful thing when it keeps us from unnecessary harm. With much practice though our fear can become a focus point of safety; a darkness, blinding sight and smothering courage. But fear always begins and remains as a point, a smudge and stain which diminishes in perceived size and overt influence as our will and the effort of motion draw us further from the source. The darkness exists in a field of light, which limitless expanse becomes apparent with every step along the path.
The Path of Wildness is an answer and response to a prescribed way of life which may leave some individuals with a sense that their living is little more than a series of pre-determined, step-like episodes between birth and death. The stages of living between these events: childhood, adolescence, adulthood, parenthood and senior are themselves natural and in accord with the needs of the species and most individuals. Many find their satisfaction in living this course and to these individuals I have little or nothing to say. Others though long for something more; something innate, genetic and seemingly calling. Adventure and change can give a degree of satisfaction and relief yet even these may seem too tame. To those who feel drawn to something beyond the entertainment and stimulation of senses I offer a walk along The Path of Wildness. Don’t bother penciling the event in your schedule, preparing a pack with goodies and supplies or even inviting a friend along, for this experience is along the course of your first inclination and you must surely always go alone.
