The Path of Peace - Exercise for the Soul
Inspiration leads to perspiration - How acting on one inspired thought can change the course of your life, your health, and the world.
One of the most inspired and inspiring guests we've had on the Outdoor Fitness radio show is author and adventurer Brandon Wilson. A true explorer, Brandon has walked literally thousands of miles throughout the world to deliver a message of peace. Through his travels, Brandon has learned that true peace comes from within, and most often enhanced by the simple act of walking in the great outdoors.
The Journey of One Thousand Miles...
Sure, when you are going on outings that are anywhere from 450 - 2900 miles in length, you're going to see some sites and lose some weight. Brandon insists it is simply a side benefit. The true payoff he says, comes from the people he meets along the journey. Brandon explains, "In a world of constant sensory stimulation, I like to remind people about the small joys that still exist in our world. I like to share moments of magic and serenity in secluded places. I like to dispel prejudices by reminding people how much alike we are. I like to inspire others to see the world for themselves without hesitation or fear. I like to challenge people to discover a personal peace, and as Gandhi once said, 'Be the change you would like to see in the world.”'
