Keep walking. Keep moving.
Each of us has a different core need, or longing, to move. As we move, the new scenery and new people regenerates this core.
‘Because we are always in different states and stages of longing, the ways we belong in the world are always diverse and ever changing.’*
The journey-person experiences and examples that it means to open the Human heart to the Other.
There is a kind of constant moving which numbs us to the reality of life, but this is not it.
I only find, when I follow the paths and trails of what passionate about, I am led to MORE than I expect, and I cannot imagine myself coming to the point where I say, “That’s it. I’ve done walking.”**
What kind of people would you have shape the future?
As I write, the new year of 2015 reminds me there are small and large chunks of future waiting to be shaped. Those who’ve stopped travelling can only bring more of what already is. But those who find they just have to keep moving – because there is more they do not know than they know – will keep on encountering new places, ideas, and people.
Here are a couple of encouragements for us, whoever we are:
‘Stuck is a state of mind and it’s curable.’*
“No matter what, expect the unexpected. And whenever possible, BE the unexpected.”^^
