“The journey not the arrival matters.” – T. S. Eliot

So think of the coming and goings of the trip as a wonderful maze that you travel.
It is all of part of the package of travel and learning how to deal with it
can really change your whole travel experience.

Restoring input

When you travel you are bombarded with
Huge amounts of energy that you need to output.
and all the while you are also receiving a massive
amounts of sensory input.
The sounds of a plane, what you need to see just to get
where you are going, the bad air you breathe, the junk food you eat and caffeine you drink all can easily deplete and exhaust you.
All of this can take away your energy and make you sick.
Take some time to breathe, relax and restore yourself.
Wear a soothing eye mask, drink lots of bottled water and go within.

Feel the Ease of Peace
Let the struggles go
All that you’ve been fighting for
has worn the weary soul.
Feel the ease of being in the moment
Let all the work of Life
Slip from your shoulders
And let it fall.
You are here in spirit
You are in this space.
Let the  light of presence
Heal you with it’s Grace.
Open up your heart
Open up your mind.
Breathe in the ease of being here
And let it calm your mind.
There is a Peace that passeth understanding
Be in that Peace right now

Many airports now have a prayer or meditation room.
It is well work going online to see if the airport you are
 going to has one. There is one in Phoenix, Detroit, Milwaukee, Newark,
Port Columbus, Albuquerque, Albany and many others. Most times these are non-denominational rooms that are quiet and a wonderful place to recharge you batteries and find some peace. Check the Airport you’ll be going to and see if they have one. You’ll be glad you did.

When you travel you are given a Golden Opportunity
To turn off your electronic devices.
Be prepared, you may go through some withdrawal.
But what an opportunity to stop your addiction to your
Texting and being constantly in the mind.
Take this time to go within
Be still, Stop the mind.
Stop everything that is distracting
and relax, breath and be still
and be with who you are.
Just be.

Only those who go where few have gone can see what few have seen.
- Buddha
How far do you go and what do you see?
And when you go far and see much, how much do you learn and change?
How much of your true self is revealed and how much of that self is willing to fully express itself?
What does going far within and without lead you to find?

Get a Journal for your travels.
Let your soul speak to you there.
Write down your intentions for your trip.
Let the words you write express your feelings, your lessons,
Your impressions and how you are doing.
What sounds, what colors, what magic. Let it be a bridge between your mind and your soul.
Your travel journal is a living energy, it can be full of pictures, tickets, sketches and momentoes.
Moments captured in your journal.

A wonderful Sufi quote from a Sufi teacher that Oprah related
that really is a blessing to remember when traveling,
“Become like a Feather on the Breath of God.”
How we could travel  if that were so.
Imagine yourself as a Feather on the Breath of God.
