One of my favourite things about travelers is how different each of them are. Each individual has their own stories and beliefs and sharing their insights and values makes me a better, more informed person. Last night I was hanging out with a friend of mine I had met through CS gatherings listening to him talk about his spiritual beliefs. He is so opposite to my own non-existent beliefs I was mesmerised by the words he spoke. I’m not converting but I’m always open to discussion about the world and how we are placed within it.
Leo and I could talk for hours on life there was never anything romantic between us but I was so comfortable in his presence and so interested in what he had to say as a person that I was happy to spend every day with him. I haven’t talked to Leo for a really long time, maybe a year but I know if we are ever in the same country again we could go back to exactly where we were on my balcony in 2011. Smoking a joint and discussing life.
These people who grace my life with their presence are improving me as a human and evolving my personality to new dimensions. Awareness is a huge part of being a better person opening your eyes to the world and accepting the differences of each person. I know I’ve had this revelation before when I took mushrooms in Bali with Dominik.
I just hope I continue to meet people who inspire me to make the most and best of the life I was given.
