THIS IS MY PRESENT LEADING…

In his 1966 essay, The Search and the Seeker, Greenleaf wrote the following:

This is my present leading; I must better establish my own bond with the great events of story and history in which man’s potential for nobility has been tested and refined so that my search can be more a carrying forward from these events through my own experience.  Much as I value the tradition in which I live I feel a compelling obligation to leave it a mite better than I found it.  ‘Man is an unfinished creature,’ says Gerald Heard.  His tradition is also unfinished.  Cannot every man aspire to carry its development a little farther? 

Greenleaf provides me and you, Gentle Reader, with an invitation and with a challenge?  Am I, are you Gentle Reader, willing to say ‘yes’ to both and then to embrace both?
