Here's a recommended reading list. Some you may be able to find at local book stores, depending on where you are located.

 Whether being a tourist is a good thing or a bad thing is really a matter of a another person's perspective.

 It really doesn't matter if you're an adventurer or the most ardent fundamentalist because somebody out there will say that you don't quite measure up to their personal standard.

 You're damned if you do and you're damned if you don't.  ;)

Edited to add: You're probably better off to be true to your nature and not define yourself by the opinions of others. After all, the person that you are is the person that you are right now at this moment in time. It could be no other way.

 Some people need the structure and discipline of a well defined path and unchanging ritual. Things need to be black and white. That kind of consistency provides them with a sense of comfort & security in life. They can't imagine how another could possibly do without it. Non conformists like travelers upset them because it can introduce and element of doubt into their belief system.

 There are others with a more adventurous temperament that wouldn't be able to tolerate that kind of confinement. It would simply be too limiting. It's hard work though. Those who have put in their time and paid their dues might find those who float about like a feather on the wind with little or no depth of understanding to be a bit of an annoyance.

 I suppose there are different kinds of tourists when you think about it. Some take a few snaps for their Facebook page and are on their way to the next stop on the bus tour. Others take the time to immerse themselves in the richness and depth of another culture for a time before moving on to the next destination that beckons their curiosity.

I agree, I have let go but I can see the weave. There is a sense of beauty, almost as though a work of art on an infinite canvas.

 It's an inactive thread but an interesting one. Felt drawn to it.

 As i remember, it was many years ago during a long hot summer. Everyday life was stressful and chaotic. Energy levels were running high. It's at times like that where you say to yourself i really need to take a break for awhile and get centered again. It was during meditation that i slipped into the dream state and wolf manifested itself. It jumped up in my face and tried to frighten the daylights out of me. I calmly told it " You don't frighten me". It lunged again and once more i told it that it didn't frighten me.

 The scene changed and raven presented itself in profile and imparted something that i needed to know but could not see for myself. An icy winter wasteland presented itself and i came to understand that it was the heart of someone near to me at the time. It was quite an eye opener !

 I took some different things from the experience and others like it.

First : It's possible that energy levels are important. The higher your psychic energy level is going in .... the deeper you will go into that other realm.

Second: It's uncertain as to whether or not you're interacting with another aspect of your own mind ( your subconscious) -or- something external in the spirit realm.

Third: It's easy to get bogged down in semantics. Spirit guides and totem animals have different meanings to different people. Sometimes a word or name can have more than one meaning and that can be confusing. What seems to work best for me is simply the generic term " entity ".

 An entity is a pretty vague thing without any discernible form. It's possible that the same entity could manifest itself in any number of different forms. It could be an animal, a grey with big obsidian eyes, the BVM or one particular manifestation of the God/dess ?

 After all .... we all have our own unique way of looking at the world around us. It would make sense that the form we attribute to the thing without form would tell us more about ourselves than anything else ?

 There's a saying " That the more you learn ... the less you know. "

 If that's true, then you could say that the goal post keeps moving. Just when you think you're finally there something new is revealed and the goal scampers away from you. That would drive just about anyone crazy.

 Perhaps the solution would be to just let it go and ride with the current for awhile ?

 Maybe it's the journey and not the destination that is the important thing. The journey can be a lot of fun. There's a whole world of strange and beautiful things out there just waiting for you to discover them. There's some hurt and sadness too but that's all part of the game. Can't have one without the other.

Just an opinion, but i would say that the learning is an ongoing process where one goes from one level of understanding to the next.

 Sometimes you hit a plateau and level off for awhile.

 Sometimes something new is revealed. That can be pretty upsetting because you have to tear down what you thought you knew before you can begin to ascend to the next level.

 My guess would be that this process of tearing down and rebuilding will continue for as long as you will allow it. There's more to be learned than anyone could ever hope to take in during one lifetime.
Well, my goal is to learn everything, but hey perhaps that ambition will end up granting me my goal, even if it doesn't I am sure I will still learn alot.
