With the fresh eyes of a traveler, I behold Truth.
English writer G.K. Chesterton said, “The traveler sees what he sees; the tourist sees what he has come to see.” When I arrive anywhere—whether the situation is familiar or foreign to me—I view the event with traveler’s eyes. I do not simply focus on what I hoped or planned to see, as a tourist might. Instead, I set aside preconceived notions and expectations. I soak in the experiences of the present moment. Whether I am traveling or at home, I journey through the day as a full participant. I engage deeply with the world—open to new lessons, new insights, and to being utterly transformed by everything I encounter. I walk with traveler’s eyes along the blessed and sacred journey of life.
Open my eyes, so that I may behold wondrous things.—Psalm 119:18
