The Hardest Path

A Journey Outside to Answer the Questions Within

Life lessons, it seems, are revealed only to faithful pilgrims, not to tourists. Not as some gift from a God on high for penance paid while in hiking shoes, but because lessons only show themselves amidst energy spent and experience collected. Visiting St Paul’s on a day trip, for example, would not be the same as arriving with the sole purpose of praying for the returning health of a friend. How can it be any other way?

One man’s story of pilgrimage in Japan allows readers to understand that The Hardest Path is not the one walked outside but the walk with one’s self inside.
