What Are Physical and Spiritual Pilgrimages?
Physical pilgrimages and spiritual pilgrimages are simply two sides of the same coin. Physical pilgrimages being the going and the doing, while spiritual pilgrimages are the searching and experiencing. In order to receive the full effects of a pilgrimage, it must have certain elements from both sides. There is no need to leave your house to go on pilgrimage. Going to a quiet place where you may travel within yourself is good enough. An object or place of spiritual significance is not necessary. But, you must have something to focus your thoughts while on pilgrimage.
So, how can we do this together? When the journey is within, it can still be shared with others. We can share our experiences and our focus. Even during these times of quarantine, we are able to come together in a video or voice chat and share our experiences and thoughts with each other. There is still so much we can do. Let us grow together. Come, join us in our virtual pilgrimages! Or, if you are not too sure about it, watch our first virtual pilgrimage here.
