10 Principles of Burning Man are a clever earthly cheat on the 10 Commandments for unsuspecting soul searchers who look to justify their place in this world. I have never really considered attending the "gathering of tribes" although I have many friends who are "burners". Even though I worked by choice in crowded NYC for so many years, the thought of intentionally hanging out with a large group just never appealed to me.
This years gathering cost over $30 million to host over 70,000 participants from all over the world. Individual ticket prices average anywhere from about $400 to over $1000 and the week in the middle of nowhere can easily cost another $500 in expenses. There are much cheaper/easier ways to awaken your spirit - and without all the earthly temptations. My awakening was not drug induced nor driven by a crowd mentality. It was (and can only be) a simple one on one meeting with Christ.
Romans 13:14 But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfill the lusts thereof.
