The recent events in an organization representing my former path caught my eye, not for the more lurid stuff that sells in the mass media, but for something else they're considering which, in the words of one critic, would promote spiritual tourism.

You might consider tourism to be the direct opposite of exploration. Look at it on the physical plane. A tourist travels in an air-conditioned bus, comes and goes on schedule, looks at all the neat stuff, takes pictures, shops at the gift shops, and gains little. An explorer makes sure of necessary comfort and safety, but seeks the full experience. There's a difference! Let's look!
