So we all know the saying “travel makes you wise.”
Well why is this?
I feel it is for a few reasons. The first is that it exposes you to many different cultures and many different traditions and mindsets. This is great for the main reason, you can select what you like and work to avoid what you don’t like. You colour in your likes and dislikes.
For instance i love Germany for its care and interest in its people, they look after their people. I don’t like it as the people don’t interact with each other easily, they are scared and cold. I love italy as they are passionate and full of life, But the government and the church is killing the people and the earth that they live on. Now before i experienced either, i loved italy and hated germany. Now i have a colourful reasoning to it.
The second is your knowledge grows hugely. You meet people that know all sorts of strange things. Travel makes you interested and in return makes you interesting. I have learnt secrets of Sheppards and the ways of the mountains. I also learnt a lot about who i am and who i wish to be.
The third and final thing i will talk about is the confidence it gives you. There is no possibility to fear life when you travel. You need to work through all situations no matter how great your fear is.
I will add that to do this all alone is key to the effectiveness but any travel is good travel.
I recently wrote that without travel there is no purpose in life. I will stand by this till someone can give me a better reason.
So looking at Facebook this morning, sticking my nose once again. I sense fear. So i go look, wolves. I go yay and the town goes blood thirsty. Wolves are seen as the devil, coming in the night and killing. This is not the case unfortunately.
Here is the problem explained by a very wise friend of mine. We will call this friend “Tree”.
There is a greater reason to the problem. This reason makes our fear one of self. The people of the valley hunt a lot. They kill many animals, this leaving the ecosystem very unbalanced. We are having problems solving this imbalance. This is how the wolves are solving their imbalance. There is no food left for them in their habitats. We have taken it. They hungry they come and look for food.
So this is not an act of greed on the wolves behalf, it’s an act of greed on our side. An act that needs to be let go.
Now this is how we solve this. The wolves are not to blame. It’s the hunters that are to blame for the depleted food source for the wolves. And the hunters are only hunting because we buy their meat. Now I don’t say stop hunting, this would solve the problem but I realize that there is no hope at this happening. So this is my proposal. Hunters should pay an organization per kg of animal they kill. This money should go to breeding programs and compensation for livestock damage. This way we put a balance in the system. I can promise you that humans hunt more animals then the wolves come to our farms for.
This is the only way we will have peaceful farmers, still do the pointless sport of hunting, and have wolves that keep our mountains alive.
