Traveling has taught me many things. The most profound knowledge I have gained is an inevitable truth. There are these moments when we are in unfamiliar places with unknown faces that spark up these natural emotions such as; fear, loneliness, and anxiety. In these moments, rests golden treasures that determine the true essence of our being.
In that nothingness , when we are surrounded by no possessions , no attachments , unfamiliarity , emptiness , the unknown , the void..how we react in these moments determine the true nature of our character.
We are born alone , we die alone, we experience this whole thing alone. TOGETHER ..but alone. This is our personal experience and we are not defined by our possessions , we are defined by how we choose to be when we have absolutely nothing. It is in the quality of our energy and the persistence of our character.
To have nothing , yet to have a rich in heart and spirit is the pure essence of our being.
Try being empty! Go through it! Face what burdens your soul, and get to your core.
I have never been out of the country before , but I have seen photos of many children who were born and raised in poverty and have this look in their eyes as if they are so wise , powerful and rich. They have something nobody can ever take away from them . And they have built upon it through years of feeling the depths and breeds of the voids. They have soul. They have purpose. They have life.
When you can make something out of having nothing and develop it into something so rich and intangible , you can change the fucking world!
I so look forward to traveling more and creating space for my love mr. nothing. I love expressing these shattered pieces , this great nothingness is my favorite partner in crime. To DIE for! What an irony.
My goal is to build every foundation I can possibly think of ! Then give it away time and time again !
What an honor it is too feel things so deeply. I never could imagine the shattered feelings that breed the void could be so beautiful .
Sometimes it takes exploring the many facets of the void to fully understand what it means to have nothing to give everything.
“At the end of life we will not be judged by how many diplomas we have received, how much money we have made, how many great things we have done.We will be judged by "I was hungry, and you gave me something to eat, I was naked and you clothed me. I was homeless, and you took me in.”
― Mother Teresa
