The Parameters of Travel:
…my personal guidelines for the way I approach art, life and rucksacking
No Assumptions; No Expectations…
– by making assumptions/expectations we set ourselves up for the black & white of success or failure, happiness or disappointment… by keeping an open, non-judging mind, we can experience the moment fully, embrace the satisfaction and beauty inherent in all experiences
– by reducing the things we cling/attach to, even those we carry (as opposed to “possess”), we can keep both our pack and attitude lighter – a perspective that honors both the traveler and the thinker
Keep your Eyes Keen & your Bed on the Ground
– realize that we can never be prepared enough, yet work to learn from these experiences so that we become sharper, more adapt and flexible – allowing us to perceive things as they truly exist, without the unfocused immoderation of comfort and pleasure.
Put your Trust in your own Strength
– in the end we all must come to terms with our own solitude… though the road is often shared, the journey is always one’s own. By facing this, we can begin to trust and depend on our own discernment (for all things). Once we do this, the road becomes more welcoming and more easily shared.
