the inner work

The outward work will never be puny if the inward work is great.
 And the outward work can never be great or even good if the onward one is puny
 or of little worth. The inward work invariably includes in itself all expansiveness,
 all breadth, all length, all depth.
 Such a work receives and draws all its being from nowhere 
else except from and in the heart of God.

If that which you seek cannot be found within you, 
you will never find it outside of you.

~ Meister Eckhart
Dominican Theologian and Christian Mystic, 14th Century

Wonderful. I like adventurers - inner adventurers as much or sometimes more than outer adventurers (although the two qualities often coincide).
