There comes a time when, just before you receive the unction to move forward, you must purposefully make yourself a foreigner (paradesi) to the circumstance that is nolonger relevant to you so that you can intentionally wander (banjara) forward to the destiny that is calling your name.

Your lane narrows, you go on a social and spiritual diet, carefully curating all you allow to enter your mind and alter your sense of belonging too much to your current place, space. You start to see all the ways “staying” is holding you back and how departing will restore and reinvigorate you—though it may be uncomfortable. This series validates the sanity of choosing foreignness to what’s been “home” all along, turning one’s back to what has been the normal for so long and the fragile, heavy space of existence that is just before stepping out into the unknown.

Journey Soulfully.
Be blessed.
