THE TRAVELLING SELF
Travelling lets lose my 'other self'. It is when I am free from my every day life and free from my every day self. I feel open open to new ideas and experiences. I am ready to explore. Time becomes the moment instead of being filled with what must be done and what I still have not done.
There are periods of stillness, of just being. I could be waiting for a flight, sitting in a bus, or watching an awesome sunset. At those times I can reflect on my life up to now and just connect with who I am. This is traveling into myself because I am with myself and not just my life.
I connect to a sense of transition - that life is ever changing and so am I. Impermanence. For me this releases the tension of needing to remember everything, of being in control, of being responsible, of having to hold onto life.
If life is a journey then I want to be a tourist.
