Drew, I was 51 in 2005. I am a reluctant work horse (Chinese horoscope). I just keep getting out of bed to do it all over again. Once I have my stride I'm okay. I did the traveling until this year, 2018, because of weariness and a jaded heart. I keep telling my boss, who is just under 40 years, that my traveling is over. I could, but I don't see the need for it. My home and my mind give me more than enough time to pan out, like Enigcom says, to the farthest reaches of reality; or, NOT AT ALL. It is ALL a mind trip anyways. The scenery is nice but extracurricular to my current life pattern. I "could" go for a ride in the undiscovered country, but it is the same scenery: trees, fields, hills, lakes and last but not forgotten, tall buildings and the like.
Like Enigcom, I search for the ethereal world of the Mind. The Mind is REALITY, and the adventure. You once said I was "thought-provoking". Think on this: your mind is the first and last "place" you will ever BE!!!
"A long strange trip it's been", (Greatful Dead).
Your DESTINATION is where you started, in the Mind, the Universal Mind, if you like, or the Self (as in Indian philosophy). I am sure you know EXACTLY what I mean!!.
You should dissolve all discrimination of individuality and absorb all things into a harmonious oneness.
The virtue of a highly evolved being embraces all people and things and dispels the darkness which isolates them.
Hua Hu Ching-primary lesson.
