Heart in Pilgrimage – a thought by George Herbert

Prayer is the action of the emotion and the intellect together. When we go on pilgrimage we take our physical selves across the hard world to a special destination, the purpose of which is to find greater understanding of our life in the world, and our spiritual life. It is a conscious action. Prayer is a conscious action with a directed purpose. The heart, and everything that goes on in the heart, is being given consideration in prayer. Physically we do not have to be travelling anywhere to be engaged in this form of pilgrimage.
