Pilgrimage is a very religious word the idea is that the follower proves his determination by following a pre-specified route to a set (or set of) locations; However, it is the journey not the destination that changes people, such travels always bring a reflective side of character and through meeting others we learn a lot about ourselves. The aim of travelling alone is to, through solitude, self-reflection and self-reliance grow and when one arrives at their destination they should be both exhausted and rejuvenated because they have succeeded. The higher the mountain, the longer the march, the more we realise we can do.
It would be therefore seem like a good thing to do two things
- To prepare members for their own personal time as a journeyman and,
- Mandate that all members must have a period of time as journeyman during their period in the community to expand their horizons.
