travel

A Quote by Daisetz Teitaro "D.T." Suzuki on travel, meaning, life, and unknown

When traveling is made too easy and comfortable, its spiritual meaning is lost. This may be called sentimentalism, but a certain sense of loneliness engendered by traveling leads one to reflect upon the meaning of life, for life is after all a travelling from one unknown to another unknown.

D.T. Suzuki (1870 - 1966)

A Quote by John Muir on silence, loneliness, alone, travel, wilderness, nature, and earth

Only by going alone in silence, without baggage, can one truly get into the heart of the wilderness. All other travel is mere dust and hotels and baggage and chatter.

A Quote by John Muir on trees, nature, travel, and wandering

Trees go wandering forth in all directions with every wind, going and coming like ourselves, traveling with us around the sun two million miles a day, and through space heaven knows how fast and far!

A Quote by John Muir on happiness, nature, acceptance, travel, and trees

I never saw a discontented tree. They grip the ground as though they liked it, and though fast rooted they travel about as far as we do.

A Quote by Robert Grudin on experience, time, night, evening, awareness, duality, temporalilty, and travel

In a railroad car at nightfall, when the natural light outside has diminished until it is even with the artificial light inside, the passenger facing forward sees in his window two images at once: the dim landscape rushing toward him out of a pit of darkness, and the interior of the car, reflected with its more or less motionless occupants. At this hour most passengers unconsciously give allegiance to one of these two polarities of vision; and the individual momentarily aware of both may be struck by the profound, almost tragic duality between outer and inner worlds, between the rush of experience and the immobility of awareness.

A Quote by V. T. Neelkantan on good fortune, libraries, open road, path, free world, and travel

Afoot and lighthearted I take to the open road,
Healthy, free, the world before me,
The long brown path before me leading whenever I choose,
Henceforth I ask not good fortune, I am myself good fortune,
Henceforth I whimper no more, postpone no more, need nothing,
Done with indoor complaints, libraries, querulous criticism,
Strong & Content I travel The Open Road.

V. T. Neelkantan

A Quote by Luis Daniel Maldonado Fonken on time, nlightement, awareness, present, past, future, travel, senses, love, luis, daniel, maldonado, and fonken

The instant experience of the present, right now and here, as it is, for your mind, energy and body, are many, and each is operating in a different state of awareness and dimension of time.
The present of your mind is far away from the time of here and started beyond the time your remember, in a time that is ever lasting and always there.
The present of your energy is actively in a time you can perceive, beyond the vision of the world in this time, and is replicated at each dimension you are manifested or related.
The present of your body, is an experience of your senses, limited to the infinite potentiality of a body that exists beyond time.
The instant experience of all dimensions of time, is available here and now, through every cell you experience and nourish with life.

A Quote by Rob Brezsny on blessings, imagination, desserts, wake up, graffiti, naming, trees, flowers, stars, travel, swans, and moon

May you eat an unfamiliar dessert in a strange land at least once every three years.

May you wake up... and start dancing while you're still half-asleep.

May you spray-paint Rilke poems as graffiti on highway overpasses...

My you learn to identify by name 20 flowers, 15 trees, 10 clouds, and one extrasolar planet...

May you dream of taking a trip to the moon in a gondola powered by firecrackers and wild swans.
