It’s time for you to look inward, and begin asking yourself the big questions:
who are you? and what do you want?
(Iroh from Avatar: The Last Airbender)
Travelling is an important time for me to take some distance to my home, surroundings and daily routine. And some distance to myself, to see how do I want to design my life. Which time in my life is the one I enjoy? The vacations? The freetime after my job? My job itself? In the end what we do for living is the living itself, so I want to be careful with me, choosing the one occupation that satisfies me completely.
And so far, if I look from far enough into my life, but deep enough into my heart, I see it is nothing with structured times, a strict schedule. It has to be something free, changeable, daily new and with young folks.
My work here costs me energy, but as soon as I’m done, I go to the kids in the neighbourhood and play with them, speak about god and life and teach them. That gives me energy.
It is not being a teacher in a school, I tried that here in South Africa for some time, it is more like a hiking preacher. I want to travel without money into the towns to do work for god, and I don’t need food or clothes, because he provides me. For me freedom is to choose my way. And happiness, if I choose good.
