On a Journey: The intent is noble
Most of us often wonder if there is more to life or are trying to put our hands around what is our meaning/purpose (In short a spiritual pursuit). What we are ultimately seeking, is the Creator for answers. This is actually the ultimate task programmed within us. Many don’t take the journey out of fear of the unknown (we were never prepared for such a journey) or just go forward ill prepared.
Difficulty in the Journey
A spiritual pursuit/path is full of obstacles, pitfalls, and distractions that will easily derail anyone’s efforts. It is a daunting effort for even the strongest at heart. It can be confusing at best and faith destroying at worst (this is largely what happens).
We simply are not prepared!
It’s not our fault! We are simply not prepared nor equipped for such a journey. Thus, it is unwise to take the journey without preparation or guidance. This is because our religions upbringing does not give us the foundation and tools to work with. We are ultimately left victim to our ignorance.
There is a solution
All said and done, we are left with the need to prepare for the journey and even some guidance at times. It’s clear that taking such a journey unequipped and with out guidance, is not the best way to start. Journeys fail due to lack of preparation and planning. There is a solution for this. It’s called Genesis Walk.
There are 2 keys that must be employed for the journey to be successful. Firstly, having tools in our arsenal that will help us identify pitfalls, to remove obstacles, and avoid confusion. This is acomplished by the implementation and understand the 7 Noachide Principals/Laws, which is contained in Genesis.
1 Do not profane G d’s Oneness in any way.
2 Do not curse your Creator.
3 Do not murder.
4 Do not eat a limb of a living animal.
5 Do not steal.
6 Harness and channel the human libido.
7 Establish courts of law and ensure justice in our world.
Secondly, it is always safer to travel in pairs or on a path that has been safely traversed before. Whenever, we hike in the woods or swim it is best to have a partner. Thus if there is a mishap, help can be summoned quickly. Genesis gives us examples of spiritual walks we can learn from. Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob are core examples to learn and study from. However, all of Genesis is about the walks of individuals that answered the call of the Creator. We study and learn from the book of Genesis as a spiritual tool for our walk.
It is simply unwise to take the journey alone.
Let us help smooth your journey into truth.
May you be Blessed for your earnest effort,
