And if you follow me then you already know this.
But you may not know why I adore travel so much.
I love travel because of the growth it gives me.
Travel expands my thinking,
my understanding of self,
Travel opens me up to knew ways of viewing the world.
My world and the world around me.
Travel is healing to the soul.
Last night we were laying out under the stars on the beach here in Riviera Maya,
little crabs crawling across the sand,
the waters sloshing up against the shore line,
and a sky so full of stars.
We laid there in silence for some time,
just witnessing the magistracy of the sky.
Every now and then a shooting star would stream across,
and my inner child would make her wish.
There we lay with the breeze of the warm summer night against our bodies.
So small against the immense sky above,
and yet I felt powerful.
There I laid feeling the magnitude of the creator moving through me in that moment.
And I was in Awe.
That is why I love to travel.
This morning we were up and back to the beach,
snorkeling gear in hand and off to the small coves that lined the shore.
Out into the turquoise waters we swam,
following colorful fish of all sizes,
and then upon the reef line we floated,
just watching the wonders below.
Again, the magnitude of this space.
A whole world around us.
Immense, powerful and full of life.
As the waves crashed upon my back every so often,
as I swam across the reef,
watching the sea creatures,
the fish flock and flurry,
I felt so small,
And yet I was deeply aware of the power I was holding inside myself.
I could again feel the magnitude of all of life,
of the creator move through me.
Wash around me,
and make itself known.
And I was in Awe.
That is why I love to travel.
No matter where I have traveled in our beautiful world,
I found a people to love.
I have found beauty in their smile’s,
in the meeting of another’s eye.
I have found compassion in the witnessing of life somewhere foreign.
I have found peace and joy in bonds that make us all human.
I have seen so many a beautiful people,
embrace me as I travel,
and I am in gratitude for them and for these experiences.
And I feel small,
I feel like how could I ever make any ripple worth anything.
And then the words of a stranger come upon me,
and I smile.
I feel the message of God.
The message that we are all human.
We are all family.
And just my witnessing and embracing of this,
is a ripple.
The connection experienced with this people,
with just this one soul,
it changes us.
It expands us.
And we grow.
I feel the love of the creator move through me in moments like this.
I feel the compassion,
the adoration and gratitude.
I feel the bonds of being human.
And I smile.
I am in Awe.
This is why I love travel.
In the arms of my lover I smile,
laughing and enjoying the moments.
Allowing the energy of life to move about us.
Yes, here too is a reason to love travel.
For all the magnitude of this world,
of the skies and seas,
for all the diversity of its people,
just between him and I is a world to be discovered.
And in moments such as these,
as we travel,
we reveal knew aspects of ourselves.
We drop our guards just a bit,
we allow a softening of our hearts,
and opening of the connection.
And here with no one else to interfere,
We travel perhaps not to some strange land,
but still we explore.
The land that resides within each of us.
The land here that is revealed.
Experiencing this world.
And as our eye’s meet,
as a smile crosses each of our lips,
we too are forever changed because of this moment.
Because of this travel.
And I am in Awe.
So many people say no to travel.
They refuse to venture out into the world,
they keep themselves closed to the adventure known as life.
They keep them shut away from the people of this earth,
out of fear they remain hidden,
and in their fear of the adventure,
of the people,
they also show the fear in their hearts.
They choose to remain closed.
They choose to remain small.
Never feeling the true magnitude of this life.
The true bounty of this earth or the vastness of God.
This life was meant for the taking.
The taking of the adventure.
the communion of the people.
This life was meant for the Awe.
here is where you will discover just how powerful you really are,
but first you must want for it.
First you must crave the Awe.
It is there.
In your heart,
in your soul,
in the people of this earth.
Dare to travel and you will see.
You will meet the creator in every step of your journey.
And you will be in Awe.
“If not now, when?”
Life is too short to stall.
