"A man travels the world in search of what he needs and returns home to find it."
Listen to my thoughts about George Moore's inspirational quote in the video below. You'll also discover a bit more about where I went on holiday, this year - a great train journey on The Ghan, between Adelaide and Alice Springs in Australia!.
(NOTE: Yes, I wrote any captions you see in this video. It's called self-deprecation, and it's mostly a healthy thing (I think!).)
So, as you'll notice in the video I really like these words by George Moore but I have a difficulty in coming up with a tangible example of how it applies in my life, or how it might apply in yours.
So I recorded this video whilst travelling towards the famous Ayer's Rock (real name: Uluru) in Australia, and I had a sense that something was going to change in me simply because I was going to visit this magical place.
And something did shift in me, I'm sure, but it's only when I returned home that I was able to discover what that shift/change is. (I'm still waiting, in actual fact!)
Perhaps this is what George Moore means.
Or perhaps it's about the need of the journey to reveal to the traveller what he actually needs, and to provide the ability in her or him to recognise it - and thus be able to recognise it when she returns home. (It was always there, at home, after all!)
Or perhaps this is about the inner journey one makes, a journey of discovery after discovery when nothing really changes other than your perception and apprecation of who you've always been.
Or, perhaps, this is one of those times when I do not fully understand the inspirational quote and where YOU can come to my rescue.
Yes, I'd love to hear your wisdom regarding this quote too... :-)
