Some people travel because they are lonely, others because they are bored…and some are on a quest for something deeper. These souls go on journeys because they are seeking something. They are looking for meaning in their lives; something to guide them and help them to understand what to do and where to go next.
For some, searching for meaning can be as simple as looking on the internet or asking a friend what to do next in life; but for others, it means doing something more adventurous. It may even mean taking a spiritual trip halfway across the world. Here are a few spiritual pilgrimages you could consider.
The Taj Mahal, India
Travel back in time as you revel in the beauty of the this majestic monument in Agra created out of love by a king for his queen. Enjoy views of this breathtaking mausoleum of marble and precious stones and let your imagination soar as you discover the eternal beauty of this grand structure. Constructed during a period of 22 years (1631-1653), this testament to the power of love and beauty was built by the Shah Jahan in dedication to his wife. Considered one of the Wonders of the World, the timeless beauty of architectural eras gone is a study in architectural design and meaning.
The Great Pyramids at Giza, Egypt
Surround yourself with the ancient history of the Pharaohs of Egypt to put the world in perspective. Visit the Great Pyramids at Giza, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, and The Sphinx, the world’s oldest known monumental sculpture. Gaze in awe and wonder at the towering monuments and ancient temples in the Valley of the Kings. Discover the pharaoh’s portal to the afterlife while exploring King Tutankhamun’s tomb, a royal shrine embellished with heiroglyphics created thousands of years ago.
Stay at home: another option to discover meaning in your life
If you don’t have the time to go traveling around the world to find spirituality and cleanse your soul of darkness, you can use the internet to your advantage. There are plenty of websites where you can experience the paranormal, and seek guidance for direction in your life. If you visit websites like Kooma you may save yourself the trip and find meaning in your life from your very own home.
