Only pack what you need and the less you need the better. Whatever you choose to hold on to will be your burden to carry. The more you can let go of, the lighter and freer you can travel.
Always leave some room in your pack…don’t overstuff. If your pack starts out full to capacity, there is no room for new treasures that may show up along the way. Always leave a little room for something new.
Life is about exploration. Our lives often revolve around routine. We have daily and weekly schedules that we follow unconsciously. When we break free from the constraints of our patterns and habitual behaviors, we find that there is so much happening and so many new places and experiences we can explore. Our journey is from birth to death….every day is ripe with potential.
Stay flexible. Stretch your body, stretch your mind and always be willing to adapt to the truth of the moment. What we want or imagine is often not what is actually happening. Being able to see situations clearly involves not projecting our desire for the truth to be a certain way. This is the best way to navigate…start by knowing the truth of where you’re at now.
Be brave. Try new things and don’t be afraid of the unknown. The only way to make the unknown known is to venture into the darkness and illuminate through experience.
Trust yourself. You got this!
Carrying a big pack can make you stronger. We need to test our strength to increase it and there’s no better feeling than taking off your pack after a long trek.
Namaste! The more you travel to foreign places, the more you will see that although we may look different or have different ways of doing things, we are all the same in our essence. Connecting with people from different cultures helps us see our sameness, even in diversity.
Everyone needs a vacation. We’ve agreed to live by a monetary system and so everyone has to work to make money or struggle without it. Money and time don’t exist, yet we can find ourselves as slaves to the system. Break free. Remember that play is as important as work. Don’t waste your whole life chasing money and superficial treasures. In the end, it’s the experiences that you have that constitute your life, not the things you acquired.
If you leave the seed in an avocado, it won’t turn brown. So good to know!!
