The most important exploration ever undertaken


The Joseph Smith expedition -

Joseph Smith led an expedition he'd like you to join him on. 

He said

"The things of God are of deep import; and time, and experience, and careful and ponderous and solemn thoughts can only find them out. Thy mind, O man! if thou wilt lead a soul [let's say your own] unto salvation, must stretch as high as the utmost heavens, and search into and contemplate the darkest abyss, and the broad expanse of eternity-thou must commune with God. How much more dignified and noble are the thoughts of God, than the vain imaginations of the human heart! None but fools will trifle with the souls of men. (DHC 3: 295.)"

You're The Image of God - Jordan Peterson (11:12) is probably the best modern day articulation I know of regarding this principal. You must explore deep and high - it's the way we change.
