Having a natural curiosity, I am always seeking out new and interesting things wherever I go. Being perceptive I travel with an open mind so that I can observe all around me. It is quite ironic that we can all visit the same place and yet each of us has our own unique image as well as a different memory of what we have seen.
Throughout our lives we experience many different kinds of journeys. They may be journeys of the heart, the soul, the mind or the body. Most of us acknowledge the physical journeys that we enjoy when travelling but do we focus as much on the former journeys?
Sometimes our life journey resembles those in Greek mythology where we are faced with a call to act and in so doing, we cross the threshold into the unknown. Check out my Hero’s Journey blog as well as my spiritual journey to Varanasi. My Indian journey was indeed my most memorable and life-changing and it inspired me to write my book, “Chasing Marigolds”. https://moirayeldon.com/index.php/books/
When I went to India I thought it was simply going to be a holiday. Witnessing the current practice of ancient yogic traditions deepened my spiritual journey in a way I never imagined. It also brought added purpose to my personal journey through sickness and health which prompted me to examine deeper issues regarding life and death.
