is not one journey

nor is it many..
it is the movement
of your self
within and as
your Self..


How would you summarize your life journey?
What is the relation between journeying and searching?
How does self-identity apply to a journey?
Is travel significant to you?


A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.
– Lao Tzu

Whatever you do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius and power and magic in it.
– Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

All I wanted was to live a life where I could be me, and be okay with that. I had no need for material possessions, money or even close friends with me on my journey. I never understood people very well anyway, and they never seemed to understand me very well either. All I wanted was my art and the chance to be the creator of my own world, my own reality. I wanted the open road and new beginnings every day. 
― Charlotte Eriksson

I am no longer afraid of becoming lost, because the journey back always reveals something new, and that is ultimately good for the artist.
― Billy Joel

Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not.
---Ralph Waldo Emerson

A book is as dangerous as any journey you might take. The person who closes the back cover may not be the same one that opened the front one. Treat them with respect. 
― Mark Lawrence

The only journey is the one within. 
― Rainer Maria Rilke

The seeker embarks on a journey to find what he wants and discovers, along the way, what he needs. 
― Wally Lamb

The beautiful journey of today can only begin when we learn to let go of yesterday.
― Steve Maraboli

End? No, the journey doesn't end here. Death is just another path, one that we all must take. The grey rain-curtain of this world rolls back, and all turns to silver glass, and then you see it.” 
― J.R.R. Tolkien

There are many journeys.  There are those in which we are
travelers observing the world from conventional windows of 
mind and body.  There is another which entails a recognition
that we are the openness of an awareness not confined to the 
conventional windows.  Life's purpose resides in observing
the various journeys in our life experience, recognizing that our 
way of "seeing" influences what we see. Journey examples 
reside in many places: travel journals, artwork, literature,
science, scripture, and with modern teachers who appreciate 
the value of the Journey as an approach to self-realization.
We have the advantage of the web in being exposed to these
perennial teachings in a most powerful new way.
