TRAVELING AS AN SPIRITUAL EXPERIENCE

Traveling can bring families closer together. Traveling can also teach you many things about the world. But traveling can also be a spiritual experience. It is a good time for you to reconnect with God, find yourself, and have a deeper understanding and appreciation of His creations. Some people can easily feel the presence of God in nature. Amidst the majesty of His creations, one is in awe of the greatness of God. Some people prefer to travel to sacred sites to feel the connection with God. They go to where Jesus was born, where He lived, where he performed miracles, where He spent His last days, and where He died. There are also other sacred sites like where the Blessed Virgin Mary was born or where His apostles stayed to preach the good news. Historical churches have also been frequented by pilgrims and the faithful. In fact, there are religious groups that arrange tours to these sacred places to guide pilgrims in their spiritual journey. A guided tour or traveling on your own –that is your choice. The important thing is that you take out of this experience as much knowledge and wisdom as you can. Use this experience to strengthen your faith in God. Use this experience to deepen your understanding of your purpose here on earth. Only then can you say that it was an spiritual experience. When traveling has enlightened your mind and opened your heart to the beauty of God’s creation and what He wants you to do with your life. God put you here for a reason. You have a mission here on earth. When you discover that along the way, then it was a fruitful experience indeed. May traveling enrich your soul and your entire being. May it bring you closer to God and closer to your purpose.
