The day before I was about to take a trip, "The Way of the Traveler" arrived in the mail. Serendipitous, you might say. No indeed, the author Joseph Dispenza would reply. He has trained himself through the study of Jungian psychology and other spiritual disciplines to see every event, however trivial, as a means to gain understanding and insight into one's spiritual life and purpose.
Instead of tossing the book on top of my stack of "to do" materials, I sat down in the morning sunshine and started reading. I am so glad I did! Whether you take many business trips every week, travel once a year to some faraway clime, or never leave your comfortable armchair, "The Way of the Traveler" can be useful.
This book offers us the possibility to live more credibly, whether we're traveling or not. But certainly when we do hit the road, we are issuing a desire for some sort of transformation, and it's worth considering what that change is or can be.
