I knew that one day I would have my spiritual journey. Just like the main character in this book.
What I didn’t know is that that journey would come at a time where life was somewhat challenging. I felt like I had come to a road block in my life and in order to move forward I had to go on this spiritual journey. I had this profound certainty that I needed to go alone on this trip which brought it’s load of anxiety and insecurities.
So much had happen in the last few months that my values and what I felt was the foundation of who I was was shaken. I wasn’t that confident adventurous person I use to be and suddenly the idea of travelling alone, especially in a part of the world that I had never been, was causing me anxiety. But it was also awakening a side of adventure that seem to have been dormant for a while.
The only other insight that I had for this journey was that I had to go in Asia. But you are probably thinking the same thing as I thought… but where in Asia ?? Last time I check Asia was pretty big!
So I started with whatever I thought could help me. Instead of relying on others who had travel in this part of the world I decided that I would go to my local library and check out the Asian travelling books.
I felt a bit overwhelm by the many choices! There were so many books!
So I walked down the alley and whenever I felt a good vibe or like the name of a place or liked a book cover picture I picked it up ! No idea where I would be going.
After going over the Asian section I found myself looking at books from other parts of the world! lol ! Ah well I thought! I will try to focus on Asia but I allowed myself to grab a few other books in case I wanted to go somewhere after Asia.
