LEAVING

"Leaving is above all getting out of oneself. Take the world as a center, instead of your own self. Break the crust of selfishness that locks everyone up like in a prison.

To leave is not to turn a magnifying glass on my little world.

To leave is to stop turning around oneself as if one were the center of the world and of life.

To leave is not to devour miles and reach supersonic speeds. It is above all to look, open to others, go to meet them. It's finding someone who walks with me, on the same road, not to follow me as my shadow, but to see other things than me and show them to me. "

Dom Hélder Câmara (1909-1999)
