Traveling is very much connected to a mind, which is extremely meditative. Nature acts as a magnet and attracts one who is awakened.
The reason that nature attracts an awakened being is that they have same amount of emptiness and creativity inside them.
In fact travelling is a meditation for me too since it opens channels of my creativity. I feel utter freedom when sitting on the mountains while talking to them.
On my last trip of India, I was fortunate enough to trek on the sacred mountains of Himalayas. While sitting on top of mountains, I could feel the breath of those mountains.
I could actually feel that those mountains and trees have lot of creativity inside them. I felt for a moment that human has lost creativity inside him due to miserable and dull capitalistic societies.
I realized everything from mountains to trees except civilized human could feel the bliss present in life. We have simple lost an art to enjoy our birthright, which is silence. Most of us are even scared of solitude and always keep trying to find companions and friends to be alive.
We need to realize that we could never be in solitude. We always have sacred breath accompanying us all the time.
Until we are aware of our own breath, we could never feel the bliss associated with life. We cannot simply find the infinite amount of creativity present within our silence until we feel our breath.
Until one is not creative enough to feel the bliss of silence, one could never celebrate life with others also. There is no way that until one falls in love with his aloneness, one could be cheerful in the company of others.
Celebrating life with others is an act of highly satisfied and creative human being. Most of time, in our modern societies we gather on parties or religious temples, in trying to fulfill our emptiness and dull lives, which we call celebration. But there is no way that we could celebrate the sacred life with others until we celebrate our own silence.
One who can’t celebrate his own silence can never celebrate life with others
I hope that one-day human would realize that one goal of life is to make it a creative act in the modern capitalistic society, which is full of emptiness and dullness.
