Sustainable and Conscious Travel
Freighter Travel - Sailing Trips - Transsiberian Railway
Travel where your heart takes you!
Everyone carries a dream in its heart. We are longing for these special experiences. Usually this about wonderful experiences of nature, unexpected encounters and unique discoveries, which determine the value of our journey.
The diversity of possibilities seem to be endless nowadays. But why is it so difficult to live these dreams so often, which the travellers are looking for in the distance in so many different ways? What is the meaning of our travel? Is it really all about those encounters, discoveries and experiences of nature? Or is it simply about recreation and confronting ourselves?
On what we are orientating in choosing our way of travelling, our destination and planing process (as well before or journey as during the trip itself) seem to depend from traveller to traveller. A crucial aspect is our conditioned diversionary behaviour within our seemingly increasing requirements of our everyday life, where we are trying to turn our back towards those unsatisfying structures of our suffering afflicted daily routine.
Likewise we orientated ourselves again and again on well-known patterns and Trends (for instance travelling away even further and more individual) or we let us to get infected by stories told by others, which seem to be great, but do not suite us in reality. Like this it may happen, that we decide for a path which does not belong to our heart.
Our dreams might be connected with an exotic, lonesome or spiritual place. Or with path on the sea (with a freighter or sailing vessel) or on land (for instance with the transsiberian railway). And it does not any matter if on a longer or shorter route. Or these dreams may be located right in front of our door. It is not necessary to look for them in the far away distance. Away yes, but not far necessarily. Simply away from your old comfort zone.
On all those routes exist only one crucial aspect: our heart knows the path it wants to take. But usually it is difficult to be articulate in order to be well-understood by our mind. The best way to understand it, is by listening mindfully deep into ourselves and take the time needed. In most cases these are indications, rough guideposts, which are fully sufficient, but and are subject to faith. That what will arise in our heart is a vision – space for the unexpected.
It is essential, that we do not decide for any path, but for our own. It is not important if the needs of our heart do not make any sense for our mind in the first place. Our loves to start analysing and evaluating right from the beginning. That what resonates first is a sign of our heart. And it is about to give attention to this impulse and to accept its deep meaning: deal and live with it.
Life is what happens to you while you are busy making other plans (John Lennon)
An important basic principle is: “plan as little as possible and as much as actually required”. The best only one step in advance, taking time and letting yourself flow from one step to another. And then suddenly we end up where our heart dreamed of to go and what it wanted to show: the present moment, where we have an appointment with life. This is not possible to see with our mind before and John Lennon expressed it very suitable with the above-mentioned saying.
We do not have to deal directly with symbolized question of why in order to find an answer as fast as possible. Es ist nicht notwendig unmittelbar sich mit der symbolischen Warum-Frage auseinander zu setzen und eine Antwort so schnell wie möglich zu finden. Fundamental is to set out for the path of the researcher. The longer and the slower we travel, the more we will understand why the things are the way they are. What you will find there is even more important than the answer itself. This is the so called “inner-travel” during the the journey itself. It helps to keep faith, that the answer will follow after the travel the latest.
