The two adventures

Dr Paul Tournier says that within each of us is an instinct for adventure. It takes different forms in different people, but it’s the thing that makes life worth living. However, he also says that ultimately there are only two types of adventure. He calls them: ‘the Quality Adventure’ and the ‘Quantity Adventure’. The Quality Adventure is that illusive something that our deepest instincts tell us we were made for. But there’s a price tag that goes with it is; one that most of us are not willing to pay. So we opt instead for the Quantity Adventure; we try to make up in quantity what we lack in quality; usually in the accumulation of things which in themselves are quite legitimate, but ultimately are unsatisfying.
Discovering our adventure of living is all about discovering that spiritual reality of the Kingdom of Heaven within us.
