Walkabout



In Australian aboriginal cultures, a "walkabout" is a ritual in which a young man goes on a solitary journey through the wilderness in an attempt to learn more about his own character and strength.



Walkabout is an Australian pidgin (or perhaps quasi-pidgin) term referring to the commonly-held belief that Australian Aborigines would "go walkabout" at the age of thirteen in the wilderness for six months as a rite of passage. In this practice they would trace the paths (the so-called songlines) that their people's ceremonial ancestors took and imitate, in a fashion, their heroic deeds. in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Walkabout

A minha jornada começou quando decidi libertar-me de todo o peso extra que levava sobre os meus ombros. Isso incluiu libertar-me de algumas amarras, que embora muito agradaveis, nao me permitiam crescer... significou lutar por sobreviver, crescer e viver (sem me deixar arrastar) num mundo selvagem e sempre em mudança.
Nesta jornada tenho aprendido muito sobre dependencia, nao em mim ou nas coisas (pessoas) que me faziam sentir segura, mas naquele que me conhece desde sempre.
E para iniciar a minha jornada nao precisei correr o mundo, so sair do meu proprio umbral.

- Well, i think that you really need to go on a "walkabout"... but not to prove anything at all.. just to find yourself, God and the path that awaits you. Just a friendly and honestly advice from a friend that did the same, using many things that learned from you...
En otras palabras.. a que esperas? Catano...
