You tell them about your feelings but instead of responding they tell you about their car problems.
You ask them about the news. About politics and they reply by saying: I haven’t got time for that.
They just seem not to listen to you. “Ignorant people”,that’s what you think.
No matter what you tell them, you realise that they do not share your concerns and your feelings.
Do you recognise this?
You might be a traveller. Maybe you start to break your head over this definition. You think: “I have never travelled, how can I be a traveller? ”
In fact,it is a mental state of your mind. You care about the world and feel the suffering of others. You feel obligated to talk and to write about it. Above all, these terrible mood swings that bothers you over and over. From a very optimistic mood to sink in a pessimistic feeling in seconds and vice versa. In order to answer this we have to analyse the fore mentioned ignorant people.
Are these people really ignorant? No,they are not.
Let’s give them a name first: “The workers”. It will give you an idea why both groups are essential. The worker is a person whose world is not that big. Their house,garden,job and annual holidays. They really don’t care a lot what is happening far away from their homes. The worker rather watch sports or entertainment shows instead of the news, except when the news is about their direct area. The world is limited because they want it to be. A traveller might even be jealous about their satisfaction. The worker has less sorrows and as long as everything goes according to plan, they feel well.The worker does not recognise a high level of happiness. At the same time they do not fall deep in a pessimistic mood. It is almost like a flatline. In the world the workers are the largest group of people. They take care of stability and guarantee an ongoing and efficient process.
The traveller is much more sensitive to society related problems. The fact that this society is far from perfect, they realise that this system is inhumane and too many people are suffering. They cannot cope with the speed of life anymore. A traveller is curious, interested in other cultures, in other habits. The traveller is a philosopher, a scout seeking for solutions. To discover new ways of higher living standards for all of us. That makes them essential to the world.
The traveller seeks a safe haven for the workers to follow.
