As a vagabonder and a cultural guest, learn to pay back what you’ve received by spotting need and practicing generosity elsewhere (even with other travelers) as you travel from place to place. The Hungarians who picked me up hitchhiking in eastern Europe never let me chip in for gas, for instance, but their generosity inspired me to give twenty dollars to a Japanese backpacker who’d lost his money belt in Vienna. Odds are, that Japanese traveler was encouraged to pass on the goodwill elsewhere. Thus, even in an indirect way, try to give as much as you take when you travel — even if this means taking an attitude of generosity home with you. Continue reading Vagabonding II→
Fascinating book. Tips and tricks included. Just what I needed 🙂
If you wanna become wanderlust, this book is what you should read first.
Ultimately, this shotgun wedding of time and money has a way of keeping us in a holding pattern. The more we associate experience with cash value, the more we think that money is what we need to live. And the more we associate money with life, the more we convince ourselves that we’re too poor to buy our freedom. With this kind of mind-set, it’s no wonder so many Americans think extended overseas travel is the exclusive realm of students, counterculture dropouts, and the idle rich.

There was a spike in amplitude for the Schumann Resonance today which reached up to 170 Hz, possibly the highest until now.
I wanted to know more, so I’ve found this short video that made it more clear for me. SR is kind of Earth’s pulse to which the human being also tunes into.
I’m waiting for heartmath.org to solve their technical issues in order to double-check the data for today.
It’s a fact that the Schumann Resonance connects to our brain’s alpha and theta states. Moreover, scientists theorize this is the reason for many of our perceptions of life’s events.
There is even a theory that Schumann Resonance spikes may be a sign of an evolving human consciousness. (see Global Consciousness Project and HearthMath Institute )
By understanding Schumann Resonance and our species, we may effectively take advantage of our harmony with the Earth. As our consciousness connects with the Earth’s electromagnetic field, we may discover new ways to enhance this connection.
Coming to Earth is about traveling away from your home to a foreign land. Some things seem familiar but most are strange until we get used to them, especially conditions which are unforgiving. Our real home is a place of absolute peace, total acceptance and complete love. As souls separated from our home we can no longer assume these beautiful features will be present around us. On Earth we must learn to cope with intolerance, anger and sadness while searching for joy and love. We must not lose our integrity along the way, sacrificing goodness for survival and acquiring attitudes either superior or inferior to those around us. We know that living in an imperfect world will help us to appreciate the true meaning of perfection. We ask for courage and humility before our journey into another life. As we grow in awareness so will the quality of our existence. This is how we are tested. Passing this test is our destiny.
We give thanks for all those who are moved, in their lives, to heal and protect the earth, in small ways and in large. Blessings on the composters, the gardeners, the breeders of worms and mushrooms, the soil-builders, those who cleanse the waters and purify the air, all those who clean up the messes others have made. Blessings on those who defend trees and who plant trees, who guard the forests and who renew the forests. Blessings on those who learn to heal the grasslands and renew the streams, on those who prevent erosion, who restore the salmon and the fisheries, who guard the healing herbs and who know the lore of the wild plants. Blessings on those who heal the cities and bring them alive again with excitement and creativity and love. Gratitude and blessings to all who stand against greed, who risk themselves, to those who have bled and been wounded, and to those who have given their lives in service of the earth.

Every time I listen to it I hear something that I haven’t before. And another piece of it sticks to my soul’s wound from that time.
Let’s be free together, my friend…
“What we offer one another as human beings is an environment. And in spending so much time in relationships, it only makes sense that we try to use them as a vehicle for awakening. But what does it mean to be a safe space for another human being, to not have an agenda in sharing time with each other? This process requires a shift in the way we view our relationships, and the function they serve in our lives. In looking through the lens of separateness we see relationships as a means to fulfill desires, reinforce identities, and defend the personalities we’ve worked so hard to maintain. In extricating ourselves from these desire systems we free the mind and body to be open to the appropriate response within any dynamic. We offer ourselves as needed but avoid getting caught up in the giving and receiving. We learn to honor and delight in the beauty of the intellect without being caught or attempting to trap others.”
“…I give people what they want so that they’ll want what I give…”
