Wilderness-2

Thirst

In the wilderness physical wants and needs becomes heightened and present. In the wilderness the simple act of drinking water makes one realize that thirst is a lurking reality. Quenching a thirst feeds the body, and maintains life. But what about the other kind of thirst found within an inner being, and emerging spirit? Is there an ever present thirst attached to personal relationships, work, house and home? Is there a thirst attached to a dream from long ago yet unfulfilled? Is there a nagging thirst hiding in the back of the mind waiting for nourishment to make it grow? Where is this inner thirst, and can it be defined?

In the wilderness it is time to discover the core of thirst, and claim its discovery.
