Home on the Range

In your dreams of the ideal life, are you more like the pioneer (always pushing on) or the settler (settling down)?  (Serendipity Bible Fourth Edition, page 1634).

I like to look at this question first by exploring the processes of the brain itself.  The healthy brain is always curious (pushing on) and is always learning (settling down).  As the ideal brain contains  both attributes, so does a healthy life.  In religion we combine eternal verities with fresh perspectives timely induced by the Holy Spirit.  In business we gather and establish resources and disperse them in research and development.  In science we make discoveries that naturally lead to new fields of study.  Democratic governments combine change and allegiance to foundational principles.  In sum, vital human enterprise incorporates foundational mental and spiritual aspects that push on and settle down concurrently.
