THE ENJOYMENT OF WANDERING

dsc020171

Wandering seems to be a natural and historical activity of humans…and this desire perhaps remains within us but because we are conditioned to seek goals and destinations this yearning tends to be ignored as a waste of time…however it is a wonderful way to put aside our daily preoccupations and experience the freedom of moving around enjoying whatever life’s drama is occurring in the “present”…and perhaps you may even become aware of feeling at one with both yourself and the environment..

Not all who wander are lost.~J.R.R. Tolkien

Goals are never in the present but our natural home is in the present…the here and now ~Sid

I know not how I may seem to others, but to myself I am but a small child wandering upon the vast shores of knowledge, every now and then finding a small bright pebble to content myself with.~Plato

The child will show the fascinating bright pebble to the adult who has long ago lost such magical discoveries.~Sid

If we really think that home is elsewhere and that this life is a wandering to find home,” why should we not look forward to the arrival?~ C.S. Lewis

Social conditioning only confuses us in our search to find our natural home.~Sid

While wandering, you experience a mysteriously organic process. Its like a tree growing. It doesnt know where its growing next. A branch may grow this way and then another way. When you look back, you’ll see that this will have been an organic development.~Joseph Campbell

Whether we know it or not, we are always on a path even when we are wandering toward an unknown destination.~Sid

Wandering re-establishes the original harmony which once existed between man and the universe. ~Anatole Francis

The true wanderer knows his roots extend to the furthest reaches of the stars and the lowest depths of the ocean.~Sid
