Explorer or adventurer

Explorers and adventurers

An Explorer or adventurer may be a lone yachtsmen; lone explorer to places few have visited before; perhaps they are an astronaut or a mountain climber.  What marks them out is that they often take high risks and even endanger their life.  They are not seekers after spiritual experience but they frequently get them, often some of the most profound you can get.

The books written by these people are usually extremely exciting, gripping, well written accounts and well worth a read at any time.  But these books are the preferred choice of reading for my husband.  All I had to do was ask him to keep his eyes open in the text for anything that remotely resembled a spiritual experience and he – armed only with a box of ‘post it notes’ -  became my assistant.
