Let It In with Guy Lawrence

Apr 19, 2023

#252 On the wall behind Guy is a picture of Tom Blake from 1928, taken in Hawaii. Guy explained that Linda brought the picture in when they moved in and he gives it a nod every day when he sets up the room. This leads to a discussion on freedom and travel, which is the theme of the podcast. Guy is getting a lot of requests to have Matt on the podcast, which he is excited about. The conversations have been inspiring, but it is difficult to find time to record the podcast.

They discussed about their upcoming trip to Portugal for a retreat. They discussed the difficulty of setting up the weekend workshops and the mental aspects of traveling with a two-and-a-half-year-old. They both agree that the travel can provide spiritual, emotional, and mental growth, and that some of their fondest memories come from their travels. They are excited to get on a plane and see what happens, and to lean into the feeling of full surrender.

They reminisced about the importance of travel in their lives. One noted that having tickets to far-off places on their bedside table was exciting, and provided a sense of freedom. They talked about the defining moments in life that travel provides, and how it has shaped their trajectory in life. They discussed how the experiences they've had while travelling has allowed them to escape the Midwest lifestyle they grew up in. They concluded by noting that travel can open up many opportunities that may never have been available otherwise.

They reflected on how leaving Indiana and travelling to Los Angeles opened their mind to new possibilities and experiences. They then pose a question about how adults tend to become more cautious and risk-averse as they age, and if they should still be embracing the same kind of freedom they had when they were younger. They suggest that when making decisions, they should be aware of the potential risks and rewards, while still maintaining a sense of freedom and exploration.
