Inner Peace through Travel

Inner Peace through Travel
June 2, 2011 Lainie Liberti

I was recently asked to guest post for Life Coach Mary’s blog, a wonderful  resource  for everything related to Inner Peace.  Life Coach Mary asked me to write an article for her about  accessing my inner peace through long-term travel. This was something I could clearly talk about. I write about our genesis which brought Miro & I to the place we now are and the article is revealing on a personal level. I wanted to share with you a snippet  of it here. To read the whole article, please go here.


Inner Peace, experienced through long term-travel.

 

My 12-year-old son and I have been traveling non-stop for close to two years.  To the ordinary person, this statement may sound stressful, but I assure you, it’s quite the contrary experience. Living the life of a ‘slow traveler,’ is how I actually found my inner peace.

Let Go

One evening near the middle of 2008 I had an inspiration, as if a voice deep inside had been struggling to be heard.

“Follow the path of least resistance,” it said, and without a single doubt, I knew that was a clear message to ‘LET GO.

“Let go of the business. Let go of the home. Let go of the lifestyle you have built. Let go of the ideas you have about what life should be. Let go and be open to seeing what’s next.”

For several months, the words “let go” became my mantra and soon, the words “let be” replaced the original words.

From the mind’s perspective, I wasn’t sure what that meant, but watched myself begin the process of detaching from the things in my life, both physically and emotionally.  At first, I started to give away my possessions, a little at a time. It felt so good, had a cleansing effect, and I wanted to get rid of more.

And then, one evening near the end of the year, Miro and I were sitting in the office together after my staff had left for the evening. I let out a sigh of exhaustion and looked over at my very patient and loving son. Then, as if I was listening to someone else speak, I heard my own voice say “I don’t want to do this anymore … let’s get rid of all this stuff and go see the world. Let’s go have an adventure and get back to what really matters. Enjoying life and enjoying each other.”

Miro looked and me and smiled and said “I’m in!’.. .and that was all it took.
