Sending a big coconut and frangipani hug from Bali!
It is great to have my travel wings on again. Travelling the world has been a huge part of my life, my growth and my spiritual journey. I remember coming home after many years on the road when my grandmother was still alive. She was one of the wisest women I have known and I was curious why she had never travelled.
Travel had opened up my heart and mind as wide as the sky and it was hard to believe why anyone would not leave their country to explore beyond.
My grandmothers words were as wise as a sage and I will never forget them.
When I asked why my grandmother had not travelled she said...
“Well Butterfly (the nickname she called me), some of us are birds and some of us are rocks. Clearly you are a bird and you need to spread your wings and fly in order to grow. I am a rock and I learn from watching life come to me.”
Her words are as fresh in my mind as the day she spoke them.
On my wanderings around the globe many of the wisest sages that I encountered had also never even left their home town. Their journeys were taken on the road inward to encounter the hidden wilderness of their heart and soul.
I also had the privilege to meet many nomadic wise one's who were called by lands near and far to uncover wisdom and to explore their inner world through movement and pilgrimage. The Australian Aboriginals call these spiritual exploration times “walkabout”.
After hearing my grandmothers words I realised 3 things.
1. The most important journey that we can ever go on is the journey within.
2. If we tune into our own instincts and follow it's guidance it may lead us to stay still or to move. The most important thing is that we trust and follow our own guidance.
3. We can switch from times of bird like movement and times of rock like stillness. Go with your own inner flow.
So are you a bird or a rock?
