Why search for the unknown? How do you know what to search for? It’s easier to take the risk than sit and ask yourself a bunch of boring questions. A voyage is a journey, usually by sea. In this case, our sea isn’t made of water, it’s made of dreams; dreams and aspirations, our aims and objectives, the “unknown.” My previous responses to the daily prompts seem to have been forerunners for this – Voyage. Are your dreams in mind? Are they achievable? Do I ask myself a lot of questions? Yes. However, I often ask myself these questions before embarking on my journey, before “sailing to the unknown.”
I advise most people to take this voyage, to be fearless while on their journey, while sailing on their sea of dreams. Knowing it is never as easy, I give the example of an actual sailor. A sailor can never predict the mood of the sea, no matter how sure he or she claims to be. That’s the same thing with life, you can never tell what’s going to happen. Our experiences are like waves, uncontrollable, and in some cases, enjoyable. We are the sailors of the ship which is our life, and we need to take control of our sea of dreams. Never stray away from embarking on this voyage, it may turn out to be something spectacular, bear in mind, it never hurts to try.
I’d like to leave this little saying, for those who wish to embark on the voyage that is life, for all the sailors out there, “the universe lies before you on the floor, in the air, in the mysterious bodies of your dancers, in your mind. From this voyage, no one returns poor or weary.” – Agnes De Mille.
