I am not sure that this planet is home. Do you ever have the feeling you’re a tourist on earth? You’ll be walking down the street and suddenly it’s like a moving postcard around you…I’m a tourist on earth… They have funny customs here, but I am fond of the place. When I remind myself I am tourist, when I do that, I can almost recall what it’s like where I came from. There’s a magnet that’s pulling us, pulling us against the fence of this world’s limits. I have this strange feeling that we come from the other side of the fence. (Richard Bach)
Wow. The first time I read that statement, like other times before, I had to pause a moment and read it again. It is an interesting way to look at things. I am quite a fan of the analogy. Even so, I will not pick it apart so much, as in that you can allow yourselves to really look at it as well.
I find that this speaks to me in a couple of ways. Perhaps what stuck out to me the most is the feeling I have deep down that there is definitely something more for me in this life beyond what I am doing at this moment. There is a draw towards something and that something has to come from that place that I came from.
That is all I will leave you with. Hopefully this gives you something to think about.
