Seeking

 
One common response to the question “What religion are you?” is to simply say: ”I don’t follow any religion.  I’m a seeker.”  It calls up a picture of a pilgrim on a journey, looking for someone, anyone, who can share the secret of enlightenment.  Of course, as the pilgrim always discovers, the journey of the seeker is the journey within.  And what matters most for such a journey is not the miles traversed on foot, but the attitudes of mind that the seeker cultivates: willingness to question, openness to new ideas, and endless curiosity.  “Ask, and it will be given you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.”  (Matt 7:7)  What is it that you are seeking?
