December 2008 (About Travel)

MP3-version

[1169] Who has the opportunity and is fit and old enough to travel, should leave zis immediate sphere and hit the road. To leave the familiar surroundings is the most effective means to obtain new impressions that exceed the virtual world. Indeed, costs arise, but if one has the means, travel is the right investment to see the world with different eyes. The voyage needs not to go far. [1170] But the more alien the impressions are, the greater is the aha experience. Travel is the ideal opportunity to perceive with all the senses what the alien represents. How struggle other people through life? How are the problems elsewhere solved one has at home? What other problems occur? All this and more one learns on travel. The more unprejudiced and open one behaves in the other environment, the more one will learn. [1171] The more different the other environment is, the more one should brace oneself for it and the greater the benefit is from the travel. The travel should be well prepared: Nothing is more unpleasant than to be confronted with disagreeable surprises in the alien. Anyone who travels takes always a risk, whether ze finishes again the travel unharmed. But nothing ventured, nothing gained! [1172] In other cultures, we should respect their customs and traditions and adapt ourselves to the alien practices in our own interest. It is an enriching experience to know how it is to be alien, since then one knows how aliens feel at our country. Who travels, travels with L. The own experience cannot be balanced out by hearsay. We should reduce our travel fears by prayer. [1173] It is certainly helpful to believe in the good in man, even if we should not disregard the evil. We should take the necessary precautions regarding our health and our possession to perform our travel unscathedly. Even small mistakes can have a big effect. The main question we should ask after a travel is the extent to which the travel has changed us. [1174] What impact does it have on the future life? What could we learn from it? The more it has changed us, the more appropriate it is to talk with others about it. We should try to integrate the strongest results in our lives if the travel was not a pratfall. Otherwise, we should work it up and try to forget the most unpleasant by turning to gratifying things. Each travel ends with the thanks to L.
