Being a wanderer is a fascinating thing in itself. There is a certain charm associated with traveling the world and getting to see different places with their unique beauty.
Carl Segan had once said that “Your own life, or your band’s, or even your species’ might be owed to a restless few—drawn, by a craving they can hardly articulate or understand, to undiscovered lands and new worlds,” and this couldn’t be more true. New nations of diverse geography, languages, religion, people, and cultures have been discovered by wanderlust souls who embarked on journeys beyond the ordinary.
On a personal level, the people you meet and the culture you learn about shapes you spiritually into a better version of yourself. It is such an enriching experience that your whole outlook towards life could change.
As a wanderer, the Earth is your home. There is no fixed house or walls to confine you into limited space. You are free to explore with endless possibilities and grow as you learn more each day.
The noisy city life often detaches ourselves from our values and inner potentials. We get trapped in the rat race as mere pawns of time. But when you wander in this vast world, your soul gets a chance to connect with nature in unprecedented ways. The scope to discover yourself in a new light is immense and, as such, unlocks your hidden vitality.
When the Earth becomes your playground, prejudices and shallow trivialities are lost in translation. You gradually can understand the bigger things in life and how small we are compared to the vastness of existence in this world. You will notice how everything can be viewed with more empathy and understanding, and how we all are flesh and bones at the end of the day.
Meeting new people and having these new experiences can have a profound effect on you. Many wanderers undergo spiritual awakening through their journey across the globe. We may read and watch a lot, but what unfolds through experiences of traveling amongst people and nature is priceless. You start living your life to the fullest and grow as a person rich with experiences.
You also realize a sense of freedom to follow your passion and pursue your goals. A nomadic lifestyle is not confined to traveling. It also depicts the exploration of limitless possibilities. Moreover, living a life of freedom equips you with immense courage and will power. Oftentimes you may find yourself in adverse situations in unknown lands amongst unknown people. But the courage you have found within will help you overcome all challenges and emerge out of it gracefully.
Finally, I would like to quote J.R.R. Tolkien, who said, “Not all those who wander are lost.” Being a wanderer makes you one of those few people in the world who think beyond the ordinary and have the courage to dream and shoot for the stars. You too can begin your wandering journey; all you need to do is believe and have faith in yourself.
