Take a deep breath.

Breathing.

Allowing yourself to feel your feet on the floor, your feet in the chair. Focusing on your breath — going in, going out, going in, going out.

Letting all your thoughts fly through your mind like clouds in the sky.

Feeling safe. Feeling ease.

Now, imagine you are in your car. In a moment, you will turn on the ignition.  You will feel the rumbling of the engine, the purring of metal and oil warming up, the ringing reminder to strap yourself in with a seatbelt. The car is now ready to carry you where you are called to go.

Looking out at the road in front of you, imagine you are leaving everything in your life behind. Everything. Your friends. Your family. Your job. Your responsibilities.  Your wife. Your husband. Your relationship issues. Your problems. Your trouble.

Leaving everything behind.

Everything.

And everyone.

For a little while. For a temporary pocket of time. For a journey with a beginning, a middle and an end.

Imagine that you are setting forth on an adventure to a new world, to a place you’ve never been, to a way of thinking you have yet to know, to emotions you have yet to feel.

You are about to set forth upon a SOLO TRAVEL JOURNEY. You will be leaving your life behind, propelling yourself into motion, heading out on the open road, feeling the power of momentum carrying you forth into the unknown, into a space and time where you will meet up with your unique destiny like an arrow meeting an arrow in mid-air.

Come.

Let yourself imagine this. Alone. Surrounded by new energy, new faces, new ideas. On a simple, little trip. Or perhaps on a long distance journey to a land far, far away.

Don’t worry. You are not disappearing forever. You will be returning.

That’s the point of the journey — coming back home.

And while you’re out there, remember this. You won’t need anything. Everything will be provided for. Every resource you require will arrive to you at just the right moment. Every teaching, every test will show up as exactly what you need.

Ok. Ready. Let’s go.

And always remember to keep it moving.

THE NEXT BOOK

* * *

Last year, I was attending an Abraham workshop when a woman came up to sit in the chair with the following question:

“Abraham, I’ve just written my first book, and now I’m not sure what I should do to get it out there?”

Abraham jumped on her and immediately and replied: “Just write another book.”

The answer made me shudder. It was so brilliant, so easy, so perfect.

Here’s a taste of Abraham from a different seminar, but the same subject. But keep reading below the video. What follows is an important announcement from me about THE NEXT BOOK.

So….

How does one stay in that feverish, meat-grinding energy that consumes a writer privately while simultaneously getting out there and pretending to be a Price Is Right model hawking a book like it was a new set of dining room chairs?

The answer is easy. Write another one.

Well, now that the advance edition of THE ZEN OF SOLO TRAVEL has been published and is being read by hungry readers at this very moment, it’s obvious to me that I need to write a book that is not about my journey, but about your journey.  A book that explains what it takes to really put together a Solo Travel trip — how to do it, when to do it, why to do it.

A book about what really happens to you before, during and after a journey.  A book that gives you soulful taste of  truth about what you may be going through in your relationships, your mindset and your life direction.

A new book, a real book, a book about you, not about me. A book that hits the note about your inner world and inspires you to set forth into motion and temporarily leave everything in your life behind that you may experience a feeling of aliveness like you never have before.

So, ahem… it begins on this blog:

THE SOLO TRAVEL SOLUTION:

HOW TO MOVE THROUGH SUFFERING INTO WISDOM, INNER PEACE AND ALIVENESS!

Or so goes the working title.

I will be writing this book as blog posts over the coming weeks. It will be written with the same style and voice as I conveyed in THE ZEN OF SOLO TRAVEL, but it will be focused on how you can learn this process and set forth on your own journey, that you may experience a state of wonder, relief, and a feeling joyful aliveness that propels you through profound change.

It will teach you how to do this. How to move through and beyond emotional suffering by leaving it all behind.

My agent has been alerted.   I just haven’t met her yet. This new book will find her.

So I recommend that you tune in to the blog on a regular basis, subscribe to the mailing list below, and while you’re at it, get yourself an Advance Copy of THE ZEN OF SOLO TRAVEL — (pre orders are being accepted for expected shipment in mid-October – CLICK: HERE).

And kindly share these posts on Facebook, Twitter, two paper cups connected with a string, and so on.

Thank you so much, dear readers. And always remember to keep it moving.

-Michael
