“I have made a committment to explore all the world with the goal of bringing people together, regardless of our differences, to solve global problems.”
I’ve always known it to be there, somewhere rolling around my skull but not originating there. Like feeling a wind blowing in one moment from the south, then the north, then the west, then the east; until realizing the wind came not from any particular point but was swirling all around as chaotic and complete. And if you sat near many campfires when the wind does this, you have probably experienced those times when no matter where you move the wind keeps changing direction so as to blow smoke right where you are, telling you to continue moving; to never be too comfortable in stagnation or you may be as memorized by the flame’s false love-signal as the mistaken moth.
I am now preparing to begin going into the world, traveling always from city to city, country to country, to see what love may be in store for us, humanity.
It seems there are many problems in our world; from immense poverty and people in lack of what gives physical life, which I presume may unthinkably be a problem that is dwarfed by our lack of spiritual wholeness. And it for both of these reasons that I will go and walk in faith that there is a way for us human beings to live rightly with one another – human rights, if you will.
My first international destination is yet unknown, but I expect I will leave the United States within the next few months, journeying west from the west coast I now roam. I have received several suggestions and invitations; to St. Petersburg, Russia to England to Mexico, and I believe the place I am to go will soon present itself as the wind always has a habit of moving us if we let it.
Do you have suggestions on place I should go? Do you know of a great nonprofit, organization or community group I may connect with, volunteer with, or help support by using my walk to raise funds and awareness for them?
Let’s connect. I would be honored to have a conversation and learn about who you are and how we may all work together to bring a little more love and freedom to the world.
