The Search for Safety

I wonder if our search for safety means that we’re not searching for goodness.

So what are we to do? In foraging circles, the solution is simple: you learn. You learn what’s good and what’s bad so you can enjoy the good.

A couple of thoughts here: I think she’s right that an over active desire for safety pushes goodness into the corner. But more importantly she hints at what is required to learn what is good in the midst of what is not safe: foraging circles. We need community. We have to make this search for goodness with others. There are people wiser than you and me who can help us find goodness, beauty, and truth.
