Who Are The Travelers Within?
We are Life Traveler’s, but of a unique kind. For us there are two mediums of exploration; the outer world and the inner world, as we find the nexus place between them to be fulfilling, inspiring and enlivening. We are not metaphysical by nature, nor are we religious, yet we maintain a reverence for life and we strive to be loving, understanding and compassionate. While we have faith, we do not endorse any one faith, philosophy or spiritual practice, and we are not politically motivated or organized around any agenda of supreme importance.
We are not ex-patriots, pacifists, extremists, altruists, conformists, or activists and yet we choose to live in peace, with the freedom to be and with a desire to influence the world in positive ways. We are also not communalists, socialists, nationalists, or any other version of “ists,” yet we enjoy collaborating and working together and offering assistance and support to one another. We love life, honor Natur, revere humanity and we aspire to and act upon noble yet humble causes.
While some of us are teachers, all of us are students in that we find teaching and learning to be a sacred exchange. We stay out of each other’s businesses and lives and rather than telling one another how to live, we honor one another’s choices and actions. We harbor no hatred towards ourselves or others and we hold no mission to right the wrongs of humanity, nor do we believe we can solve the problems of the world.
We do not feel entitled to anything, we choose not to live beyond our means and while we are not motivated by money, status or power we enjoy art, culture and living a good life. We are not purists although we prefer cleanliness, health and vitality and we embrace nutrition and all forms of physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. We do not strive to be perfect but excellence is something we aspire to and rather than attaching our identities to what we do or what we have, we prefer to be known simply for who we. We value humility over pride and authenticity over pretense and our commitment is more to growing and flourishing than to being right or protecting our egos.
"It is not length of life, but depth of life." - Ralph Waldo Emerson
