One thing I learnt by traveling the world is that comfort kills the dreams and connection to what really matters.
We create and seek so much comfort for ourselves that we get disconnected to our own bodies, Earth, nature, soil, air, food and water. This disconnection causes separation from the whole picture, diseases, unhappiness and pollution. We no longer can relate to nature if we never feel nature. If we live in cities surrounded by artificial materials isolated from nature and eat artificial processed food and water. Because we so much love the comfort we pollute our bodies, minds and environment. We don’t know how to use natural materials and resources to survive and live in harmony with Earth. We never learn that at school. We don’t learn how to cultivate soil and plant own plants and trees. We get everything on the plate delivered right to our homes and supermarkets. We don’t even walk anymore. We drive cars everywhere.and if we walk we are always safely covered in fabric and shoes, that isolate us and “protect” us. Of course it is hard to make the personal connection and relate. How can we connect to our hearts, and feel connected to everything and everyone this way? Living as much as out of comfort zone and traveling is a great way to do that. It helps to connect to world and see people, cultures and nature in its raw undefined beauty. By living out of your comfort zone you expand your consciousness and own belief system. You see beyond of what seemed impossible before. Stretching that boundary of comfort leaves you with rewarding experience of connection, mind expansion and openness to diversity.
Go travel, sleep outside, hike, grow your food, touch soil, stay at local people house, learn new language, walk bare feet, try new sports, activities, places. Learn about the processes and systems behind the things you use on daily basis. Understand where things come from and how. Create, produce, learn and stay open, you will expand and become a new person.
