so im 19..i belong to this middle-class family,, i live in a crrrroowwwded ass place in india called mumbai, n like most other places, as u're growing up its all drilled into ur head - study study study, get a job, get a family, get a better job, blah blah blah..
and in spite of the fact that so many people perhaps realize that they dont wanna be part of this.."system" or what ever its called..we kids just have to eventually become victims of this monster cuz soon it becomes a matter of survival for some of us.. will we be able to own a house ? feed our stomach ? i ws almost getting caught up into that phase of my life..
i've always been timid, a dreamer, creative in my own little space, asking stupid questions n then get lost in my own world of thought..i smile at plants n trees.. i love looking into the eyes of a stranger and feeling a weird sense of familiarity - all of these qualify me as a weirdo to people..
in november i visited goa n it ws the first time i saw people from other countries and people from othr parts of my own country.. in matted hair, dancing, being one.. n i spoke to a few and they told me that they travel where ever they want and that the whole world is their home n for the first time in my entire life i ws sure of the fact that its what i want to do..
when they dance they dance like there is nothing to worry about, i saw people living on random beaches n they said they'd been doing it for years..
my question is, how do u do that ? did u spend years earning the money and save up till u could travel everywhere ??
what kinda jobs do u take up ?? have u mastered skills so that u can find tiny jobs where ever u go n then live freely till u need to work again ?? has any one lived in monasteries ? where do u go back to ??
if i decided i want to be a healer and learn skills like stitching or decide to paint psychedelic stuff for rave parties is there any advice u can give me about how i can work towards this dream ? are there countries that have communities of such people ??
i have seen nothing of the world outside and i dont know who to ask..
