Belief grounded in what? Trouble is, too many people go in search of "beliefs" about "ultimate things" with no groundedness. Such people often only have the library of cultural myths to work from, oftentimes, and so don't have much groundedness in their own Earthy, embodied lives. Is it not obvious, then, that one first needs groundedness in one's own life-experience, the body/Earth ..., before going in search of yet more ungrounded fantasies...? No story or picture satisfies. One has to arrive at ground zero--grounded human experience, to even begin to search for a path.... And a path only leads to one's own true front door.
