I’m unsure of exactly how long it’s been since we left home. I think we’re getting close to three weeks or so.. Seeing the country from a car and not a plane is so much more rewarding. I wish we could have seen a few more national parks and a few less cornfields, but there’s always the return journey for that. The main focus was to get to Cali.
It’s incredible here. Driving through the winding roads of NorCal has been the most belittling but rewarding part, other than the Rockies. Colorado is on a whole other level of beauty than anything I’ve seen in Cali so far, but I’ve seen such little of it in comparison that I’m sure by the end I will be anything but dissatisfied.
Life is such an incredible thing. I am so grateful for the opportunities presented to me and I can’t wait for the wind to blow me into a new chapter.

If a man thinks that his happiness is due to external causes and his possessions, it is reasonable to conclude that his happiness must increase with the increase of possessions and diminish in proportion to their diminution. Therefore if he is devoid of possessions, his happiness should be nil. What is the real experience of man? Does it conform to this view? In deep sleep man is devoid of possessions, including his own body. Instead of being unhappy he is quite happy. Everyone desires to sleep soundly. The conclusion is that happiness is inherent in man and is not due to external causes. One must realise the Self in order to open the store of unalloyed happiness.
