on a beach, money dosent matter. in a big city money is important. despite this, these two places could be just the same. without time, you aren’t connected to either.
our lives are fleeting. that is the greatest lesson i have learnt.
where you spend your time and what you experience influences your perception of your own reality. we can all easily harness this idea and develop our own concept of what life is about, and what true happiness is. this notion of peace with ones mind and soul can not be learnt from a book, it needs to be lived and realised through self exploration.
all of this isn’t easy of course. we need to let go of our own self perception, possessions, neediness and ego. we need to do this at a young age, while we still have time ahead of us.
being open and free from binding distractions we can channel our mind to its full potential to explore the concept of true living.
life itself needs to be explored. people, places, climate, food, way of living, wealth, poverty, friendship, mistrust, sickness. age and experience are often drawn in parallel. the older we are, the easier this exploration is. we naturally know more, so we have the potential we have to reach a greater understanding and a deeper happiness.
despite this, the younger we are when we start this exploration, the better. when we are young, our minds are naturally open. we are still growing and learning with the innocence of a child. we are less judgmental and quicker to learn. we are not preconditioned from the past.
the earlier we start this journey, the longer we have to walk this life in a state of peace and happiness. the greater potential we have to live longer and spread our knowledge.
we all need to escape our surroundings and explore different worlds to realize our full potential for life. to reach a harmonious balance of health, work, love, exploration and meditation.
this is why i will always be slightly nomadic and will never stop traveling this world.
