I explore some of these thoughts here.
A peaceful path deep in the woods is the setting. What does Salvation and Eternal Life mean and how do we achieve it?
One great way to come closer to the ideal of spiritual cleansing and connection with God/The Universe/That higher power is through the Pilgrimage. A trail in the woods, any trail, can be a pilgrimage path if you come to it with that intention in your mind and heart. It does not have to be a massive undertaking such as the Islamic Hajj or a trans-continental trek across Europe on the Way of St. James. You can find the joy and peace of that transcendent connection even on a day hike.
So here is some low-key exploring of paths. The words ramble as my feet ramble down the trail. Where do they lead? Well, maybe, just maybe, by leaving aside the physical conceptions of things, you come upon, miraculously, your deeper connection to them all.
