[Amanda & Centurion] The Journey of the Soul

Every voyage is a journey of the soul.


I have been living abroad for so many years and traveling so many times, still, expectations of every trip never wane. Every time, I couldn’t help but wonder that how much I could enhance my inner self, how much myths could be unlocked, how many pieces could be reorganized, how much impurities could be deposited, how many horizons would be expanded, and how much calm I could obtain!

Everyone grows in a miscellaneous way. Some grow up in the integration of gender relations, others grow up in the tension of parent-child relationship, and while others grow up in the shackles of workplace connections. As for myself, I guess I was determined to grow up in travel because of my keenness, independence, and curiosity.

In fact, I never thought that I would live and grow in this way. I thought my life would be like: After I graduated from university and returned to Taiwan, I stayed in Taiwan and worked in a variety of musical jobs. Presumably got married when I turned 30. Nevertheless, the destiny of the arrangement was always beyond expectation. I unconsciously walked towards a life that completely escaped the general framework. After moving to New York since my 30s, I was free to greet the splendid and wonderful life and accept dark challenges unpreparedly! I never thought about traveling alone all over the world, never thought about being a musician and a blogger at the same time. Let alone having my Chinese music creation album boarded so many American media!

Countless men asked me out, having dealt with so many dates/relationships, yet it is just unexpectedly difficult to find the Mr. right!

Therefore I understood! No lifestyle is perfect, everyone enjoys life and faces challenges simultaneously.

Accept your life and your own way of growth, I know that this is not easy, but in this way, we could fully absorb and metamorphose into a greater self. We enjoy the good and of course the difficulties. After all, the place we reside is earth, not paradise. Everyone has lessons to learn in this world. Therefore we are here to discover, visit, experience, and love!

There are often times we fail to understand the “whys”, but when we move on to the next stage and look back, we would smile for what we have achieved. Every process of each paragraph has its own beauty which shapes our delicate souls into a perfect state. 🙂

每一次的旅行,都是一場心靈之旅。Amanda x 百夫長

 

即便一個人旅居國外這麼多年、旅遊這麼多次,但每一次出國都還是充滿期待!很好奇每一次的旅程,對內在會有多少的擴展、打破多少迷思、重組多少零碎、沈澱多少雜質、打開多少格局、進而獲得多少平靜!

每個人成長的方式不同。有的人在兩性關係的磨合中成長、有的人在親子關係的緊張中成長、有的人在職場關係的詭譎中成長。我,可能是因為靈性敏銳、個性獨立又充滿濃厚好奇心,所以被安排在一個人旅行中成長。

其實,我從未想過會用這樣的方式生活、成長。本來以為的生活是,大學畢業留學回台後,就待在台灣工作,從事各式各樣的音樂工作,大概三十歲左右結婚。但命運的安排總有出乎你意料的盤算,我不知不覺地走向一個完全跳脫一般框架的人生,打從三十歲搬到紐約後,我自由自在地迎向極燦爛的精彩,也毫無防備地接受黑暗的挑戰!我從沒想過一個人在全世界旅遊、從沒想過除了音樂家外,也當部落客、從沒想過我的中文創作專輯竟然登上了這麼多美國媒體、從沒想過有這麼多國家的男人來約我、談過各式各樣的戀情,但要找到適合結婚的對象,竟如此困難!

於是,我懂了!沒有任何一種生活方式是完美的,每個人都在邊享受著、也邊承受著。

全然地接受你的生活、你專屬的成長方式,我知道這不容易,但唯有這樣,我們才能全然吸收、蛻變。我們享受美好,當然也要面對困難。畢竟這裡是人間,不是天堂,每個人在地球上,都有要學習的功課。我們就是來學習、來觀光、來體驗、來愛!

很多時候我們會不懂為什麼,但等晉級到下個階段再回頭看時,便會會心一笑,這每一段每一段的過程,其中都有許多美意,都在雕塑我們靈魂該有的『最美的樣子』 🙂
