- Hi, my name is Walter, and for the next 15 minutes or so, I will be taking you on a trip around the globe in hopes that it will help you get ready for sleep. And don't worry, no need to pack a bag, get your travel documents ready or find someone to take care of your plants while you're gone. All you need to do is get comfortable, disconnect, relax, and when you are ready, gently close your eyes. I believe that experiencing other places and cultures around the world even virtually, can be a deeply spiritual experience. Tonight, we will get a taste of how beautifully diverse the world is and the people in it, and yet, how similar. After all, we're all connected like drops of water in a vast ocean. Speaking of oceans, can you hear that? We're here at our first stop, the small island of Tikopia in the Solomon Islands. As you're listening, can you time your breath with the crashing of the waves? Inhale as the wave forms, and exhale as it breaks on the beach. Inhale and exhale. When looking at the horizon, it's impossible to determine how big an ocean is. Where does it end? For that reason, I like to think of oceans as symbols of abundance and endlessness. Can you find that abundance and endlessness in you? Okay, let's travel north. We're now in the small city of Beppu in Japan. There's something special about rain, don't you think? It almost feels like it's nature giving us a chance to slow down and take a moment for ourselves. Whether that means getting cozy with your favorite hot beverage or taking your time to finally write that poem you've been thinking about for a while. I like to just sit and watch the rain wash the day away. As you listen to it now, can you allow the rain to wash your day away? Your worries, anxiety, maybe that task you think you didn't have enough time to complete, whatever it is, just let the rain slowly wash it away. Forests have been a spiritual refuge for people throughout our existence. The trees spreading their branches like welcoming arms above the marshy floor. Just like this one here, the Black Forest in Germany. Sometimes I will spend hours just walking on a familiar forest trail absorbing all that nature has to offer. Sometimes I will take a trail not so familiar and see where it leads me. And more often than not, it leads somewhere beautiful. And even if it doesn't and I end up in somebody's backyard, I've still enjoyed the journey and the thrill of exploration. Can you think of a path you'd like to explore? Maybe it's something you've been wanting to try for a while. A new hobby, recipe, job, or maybe just a new sweater. Whatever it is for a while now, imagine taking that path. Have fun exploring. Speaking of exploring, it's time for us to explore our next destination. Ranohira in Madagascar. Hear that? Sounds like a thunderstorm is approaching, but don't worry, it's still pretty far away. So for now, just enjoy the wind as it makes its way through the wide plains of this beautiful African country. The wind reminds us of the essence of life. It is the vital breath of the universe of the divine. Allow it to gently carry you to a place of peace and love. We've arrived at our final stop tonight, the Rainbow Mountains in Peru. The sky above slowly fills with stars. Everything around us is settling in for tonight, just like you. As the world around you falls asleep, I hope so do you. Our journey has come to an end, so I will quietly leave now, allowing you to get the rest that you need and deserve. Good night.
