Where do we wander, when our minds allow us to go places? Do we allow our hearts to follow? Or more importantly, our feet?
Where we wander is important for the soul. To roam the earth is our purpose, to experience the beauty that is the earth that we came from, and nourish it so that it nourishes us. How many of us spend countless hours being of the world, but not truly a part of it. Down to the bare chemicals that make it all up, this life. We exist in a nonexistent world of pixels and artificial light. I’m scared of where things are headed with technology and the future. We are becoming less and less a part of our earth, and contribute more and more to make it irrelevant. But we are this planet. This is no separating from it. If we forget about where we came from, who do we become? We are all molecules in a very perfect eco system called life! We can’t substitute what is the real, physical matter for an artificial life- one of countless hours spent living vicariously through social media, celebrities, television, etc.
“And then there is the most dangerous risk of all –
the risk of spending your life not doing what you want
on the bet you can buy yourself the freedom
to do it later.”
Never get so busy making a living, that you forget to make a life. Watering that seed of wanderlust in your soul, and nurturing your desire to roam is natural… it is healthy! We have that desire to experience the world, its sights, its culture and people, because it is a part of us. Denying that makes part of life meaningless. To spend your whole life in one corner of the world is like only reading one page of a book.
So make time to wander. You don’t have to go far. But maybe start small. Go someplace new, somewhere you haven’t been before. Maybe once a year, once a month, or once a week. You have to open up your mind and soul to the experiences. But you learn something from wandering… you learn about yourself, and people, and life. And it’s priceless.
