A path can not be found unless it exists.

A person moving forward does not create a path.

A group moving forward creates a path (and usually a cloud of dust!).

Are we really interested in students "finding" their "path"?

Is our goal to expose a student to the "earth" and follow behind them as they
experience their existence? If so, can a student see anything but the horizon
that exists from where he/she exists? How can we know if our actions are
enhancing or hindering their experience of their existence?
