Life as a wanderer.
There is nothing freer than not being attached to anything. As a traveler, you are embracing new cultures and constantly meeting new people. This is very valuable and creates a bond with you and the locals. As you travel, you begin to detach yourself from calling a single place home. Of course, there will always be a special place where your family and friends are located, but now there are new places where you’ve made memories.
On the other side, it might be sad to read ‘nowhere is home’, but it simply means one is not attached to things or places. This philosophy is similar to the Buddhist monks practicing non-attachment to attain spiritual enlightenment. This also ties into last week’s debate about minimalism. Traveling lightly allows you to move freely and not worry about materialistic things.
When everywhere is home there is no mental limit to where you can go. Once a house is classified as a home then often we like to stay close to there. We feel safe. This phrase just allows us to go out of our comfort zone and make the most of every place we visit. Opening up to new neighbors and locals just as we would when moving to a new neighborhood creates endless places to call 'home'.
Do you agree with this statement or do you think there is always a place to call home?
