Travel, Without Traveling

Travel, Without Traveling

What do you love most about traveling? I like the feeling of freedom in my daily routine, freedom from stresses, and largely freedom from stress!

So how can you get that without actually travel? My favourite method is to read a excellent book. It may be an old favourite, or a new experience, but it’s to pull me in and keep me so snuggly that I can not even consider anything else! My entire body states,”Aaahh.” Then I get excited about what is going to happen next. The atmosphere and experience of another time and place could work its magic to make me feel I have left my home and flown off to a terrific new experience.

My latest favorite book for this sort of”travel without traveling” is Adventures of a World-Traveling Scientist by Stanley Randolf. Imagine discovering secrets of cultures that are odd, bizarre animal species, new views (such as”after your Spirit Voice”), and terrifying minutes just around the corner! From China to Rarotonga, I sensed very-well-traveled, like an aristocrat from earlier lore.

Then there’s foreign film with subtitles in your first language. You may end up thinking differently about life after viewing something which occurs in another land.

A different way to travel without travel is through finding new civilizations right at home! Or nearby, if you’re able to get to a bigger city. Most cities have at least one ethnic restaurant that won’t just function new-to-you food, but will delight you with a special atmosphere or art and music, and perhaps even amusement native to the operator’s original culture.

However, books are the best for me personally, since I do not need to consume the unknown cuisine when it sounds really awful, but I could pretend I am still open to it. With a fantastic imagination, books can make you fly away to lands unfamiliar with a joyous freedom of soul and heart!

Imagine yourself in which you want to be. Wherever you to go, if you read about it, you’ll have a better sense of being there than with movie, though that will help. Simply consider not just how it would seem for you, but how it might smell, sound, feel mentally, and even feel when your feet hit the sand, or your hand touches a very old rock. It can get very real and truly become a”mini-vacation.”

Tired Of Being Disappointed?

Parent help is one of the highlights of my week. I love going into my son’s class to aid his teacher and other school staff. I love working in a different school environment as a chaplain. And I loved helping in my daughters’ courses when they were children too.

It strikes me, the more I’m involved with school surroundings, the way holistic education is. It’s not only about the academic work or the’formative’ years. There is very much a social dimension to education that carries through beyond school, even, hesitant as I say this, into life as a 50-year-old. We are always learning.

I was reminded of this as I watched my child interact in a course session on the mat. He wasn’t picked to do something, and I glimpsed something remarkably human in his disappointment. I found myself in his disappointment.

‘It’s what it is, son. Acknowledge it and proceed.’

That’s what I believed I heard God say to my spirit.

Life is littered with disappointment. And we always feel like we have been hard-done-by. If we are not careful disappointment grows legs and runs full tilt toward bitterness and headlong to the eventual’decoration’ of resentment.

As a five-year-old the disappointment seems obvious on the face, a heart that is momentarily rejected, but they look quickly to get over it. But on a fifty-year-old that disappointment is often hidden in an’Oh, I’ll be fine… it’s really okay…’ when sometimes my soul is truly saying,’Gee, that hurt!’ And,’If I’m honest, I’m stunned!’

The point is disappointment stings. We don’t expect not to get our way. And it strengthens feelings of injustice (‘it’s not fair!’) Or one of a range of other not-so-good feelings and attributions.

Two things we could do about disappointment: 1) admit it occurred; that we felt the sting of disappointment, and that that is fine, without judging it, and 2) proceed. That’s right, we simply move on. We don’t give the disappointment that emerges any more attention than it warrants.

I didn’t enjoy it as it happened, but I’m not going to let it define me.

Tough as it is, when disappointment happens, it’s best to acknowledge it hurts, take courage to feel it, understand what you can, then let go and proceed. Read the full report online.
