07:38 meaning of travel
This morning, in my dream, I finally found the meaning of traveling...
Suppose you wake up in a strange house, what is the most natural thing to do? You will look at every corner of the house to see what is there, perhaps that will give you some clue why you are in the house...
Traveling is the same, to find the clues of why we are in this world, we travel to different countries, and searching for clues? perhaps we can find out why we are here in this world.
