To travel to distant lands or to travel outside your box is to open yourself to projections of the outer world…to walk amidst the mirror of your soul…to see the people and to attract that which you are.
All the people that come into your life are there for a reason and to teach you aspects of yourself…the ones you dislike, the ones you love, the ones you push away, and the ones you embrace are all YOU in another form…there to act as mirrors of an aspect of you that needs to mature or that is as divine is as meant to be.
I always tell people that question me on the reasons for my far away travels to which I reply “There is no better way to know oneself then to enter a far away village in a distant land and be.”
In this state of being a true knowledge of oneself arises, unable to run away with the use of words…no one can understand you…unable to run to the arms of a family member, these people are your family. And soon you realize that the world is one small family that wants to be friends, you realize that the mission in life is the same the world over…to be happy and try not to hurt others achieving this happiness.
Be aware of your friends and foes and know they are all there to reflect what you are inside and what you want to be…learn from them all and you will find the true essence of your being. Stop to think who is in your life at this time and think whether this is what you want…if not, than start to change the way you project yourself out into the world…for the people of the world are a powerful mirror and the essence of the Divine.
