Today Madeline lead us in a discussion of Spiritual Journeys.  Travel sometimes enlightens us.  Sometimes it is a profound enlightenment, sometimes it simply opens up our minds to seeing the world in a different way. 
She talked about Siddartha, who left his home and discovered fundamental truths that liberated him.  Jesus spent 40 days in the wilderness before launching his ministry.  She even talked of Charles Darwin, who gained profound insight from his travel to the Galapagos. 
Travel is sometimes just a vacation, but we each in our turn discussed the things we have learned about the world in our own travels.  Some of us have had profound new insights into the world that we have learned from travel.  It was an interesting discussion.

One thing we know, travel makes us see the world from a different perspective than we had when we just stayed home.
