An Introduction to Freedom

This is a guide for anyone having a need to go away from their current situation to another. Your reasons for moving across land, sky and water may be different than mine, but the journey is just as important.
In 2008 I sold and gave away almost everything I had collected over the years to buy back my Freedom. 
Chapter 1:  Who – You are is much Bigger, and much Smaller than That.
Who you become will not be as dependent on what you did for a living, any roles you played in other peoples lives, where you grew up or got a degree.  You are also much smaller than everything else in the Universe.
Chapter 2:  What – Keep it Light & Simple
Travelers can be on a bicycle with a knapsack, or living in a luxury motor home worth a half a million dollars. Most of us fit in somewhere in between.  
 Travelers fit into a few groups. Most of them are very helpful.
Chapter 3: Where – There are Soft Places and  Hard Places. 
Stand anywhere and look around, at the expansive skies above, to the rocks on the ground beneath your feet.  There are literally thousands of places to visit. Landscapes, seascapes, lakes, forests, deserts, hills and canyons.  But you can’t see everything.
Chapter 4:  When –  Go North in the Summer, South in the Winter. 
 I listen to the environment. Temperatures and humidity can shift overnight. 
Sometimes it is the culture that holds an interest, or sends me away.  The deeper aspects of intuition tell me when to go.  Trust your instincts about danger.

Chapter 5:  Why – The Elements of Life.   
Get to know what makes up the World. Your senses will open up if you feel them. They can receive more knowledge than you think. 
A Blessing:
May the roads you drive on be smooth.
May you find whatever you need.
May you see beauty everywhere.
May you always know where to go, and when…
