Today's so-called "seeker" is about the business of connecting with that original and originating Spirit. He or she is also about the business of connecting with others who both search and at the same time image that which they seek. The most remarkable characteristic of all this looking and spiritual striving, at least from a professional religionist's point of view, is not that it is going on, but that it is going on with almost no sectarian or even tradition-oriented guidance. The average seeker in America today is being shepherded to a large extent by commercially published books that owe allegiance to the experientially validatable and to a perceived mystery.
