“I felt the need for a great pilgrimage.  So, I sat still for three days.” – Kabir

I love to travel. Going to a new place and immersing myself in the natural beauty of the landscape, the culture and cuisine of the region, and the amazing proliferation of human expression has always been one of my favorite activities. Travel expands my consciousness. Kabir is talking about a different journey here, though. He is referring to the journey within where we quiet ourselves and seek out the source of Truth within us. It is a different kind of travel that doesn’t require a passport or an Air BnB reservation but has the potential to deliver the same kind of expansion of consciousness and awe-inducing experiences. Even if you don’t have three days to devote to sitting still, it might be time to plan your next trip!

May we take the time to sit still and explore the incredible interior landscape of our own soul. Have a great week, everyone!
