As I began to love the world As I began to love the world, I took my bag and went out to see it. I travelled and was filled with endless awe about the beauty pf it. Now I know: That is CURIOSITY. As I began to love the world, I let go of any unnecessary weight on my shoulders, taking only what I needed: small things that fit into my pocket. And I figured by reducing the outside I found more space on the inside. Now I know that is TRUE WEALTH. As I began to love the world, I understood that joy was coming to those who were (for)giving and bitterness to those who refused and feared. Now I know that is GENTLENESS. As I began to love the world, I realized how relevant time was, how unimportant the causal concept the humans invented. Much more I discovered how important the energy of the very moment was. Today I call it AWARENESS. As I began to love the world, I stopped living with expectations by accepting whatever challenge or miracle crossed my path. Now I know that is COURAGE. As I began to love the world, I realized how unnecessary it is which path you choose but how impoartant to GO it, tu live it fully. Today I call it LIVING WITH INTENTIONS. As I began to love the world, I realized that humans cannot survive alone, that inspiration and happiness are only real when shared. That is COMMUNITY. As I began to love the world, I began to love myself. Ronja Maltzahn
