Searching for the Source

Why We are Headed on this Journey

Whether you call that source God, Allah, Mother Nature, Gaia, the Divine Father and Mother, the great “I Am,” or maybe you don’t know what you believe in, there is something undeniably bigger than us, greater than us, yet within all of us. It connects us, it makes life worth living, and it makes us get up each morning and choose to live another day.

But unfortunately, that Source, that life force, has somehow escaped us in our modern lives. We work tirelessly day in and day out, buying the latest gadgets, and becoming ever further in debt to a system that has never given us anything of substance. We all say the most important things in our lives are our family and friends, yet somehow we continue to put up barriers, walls, and distractions that keep us from enjoying them fully. Things like Facebook keep us “connected” but disconnected. iPods, iPads, smart phones, the internet have “improved” our lives so much, many people have difficulty holding a real conversation anymore. We’ve become so scheduled and busy, multitasking five things at once, we don't have time to enjoy what life is really about!

So our small family has decided to do something different, and search the world for what life is really about, enjoying, living, experiencing, and remembering. We want to truly experience life to the fullest; we believe that we are capable of knowing and experiencing God on earth and we're set out to do just that. Here's a quote from Pierre Teilhard de Chardin that we really like:

"We are not human beings having a spiritual experience; we are spiritual beings having a human experience." large_IMG_1077.jpg
