the intersection of travel and spirituality
"faith is a house with many rooms". - life of pi
once a year take a trip through the eyes of your heart. looking inward to consider the meaning of your experience to your life of faith. if you are afraid to travel alone then you must travel alone. i hope to set intentions of being more mindful, engaged and connected with my heart while i travel, with no expectation, to reconnect with nature, commit to a purpose of my trip, give up the ideas of solid plans, and participate in present-day life. wish me luck!
"I must say a word about fear. It is life’s only true opponent. Only fear can defeat life. It is a clever, treacherous adversary, how well I know. It has no decency, respects no law or convention, shows no mercy. It goes for your weakest spot, which it finds with unnerving ease. It begins in your mind, always … so you must fight hard to express it. You must fight hard to shine the light of words upon it. Because if you don’t, if your fear becomes a wordless darkness that you avoid, perhaps even manage to forget, you open yourself to further attacks of fear because you never truly fought the opponent who defeated you"
