An Undefined Way, Like life - Eurasia and may be More

Hello my name is Can and from Turkey, this trip has been thought may be during ten years and near one month ego started it has not a planned route i say "welcome" or just accepting to/of endless random generation of "nature". my english is very bad and sorry for unskilful narration.

Comrades, brothers and sisters :P

One of the challanging issue for me in the life as a wholeness –interests, cares, engagements, “bad” and “good” etc- which ones belongs to me fundamentally and which ones are pushed by garrulous face of local or global culture, and not actually belongs to me. Contemporary world and cultures–at least that I faced- constracts relations dominated by “marketing” not just in economy but also in all aspects of life. Jobs, clothes which one is should attractive and which ones are “bad” is being announced by “public self”. Of course all communities have been “public self” simply culture, at least as a form. But in contemporary world and culture nearly just marketing as content!.

We are borning in to intense chicken producing fabrics and our owner “public self” feeding us with its content for being well-fed fat chickens. And in this intense stock life we are generally looking just to forage on the ground, that offered us. This stuation withholds us to look horizons . Because it is not on the ground!

In turkey when a child is able to talk one popular question is “what will you do in future” a doctor, engineer, soldier? Etc. its actually, borning in to a language sometimes can be interpreted as “become dirty” “probably” dependant on culture or not.

If we can describe, the separation ability between fake and non-fake belongings in our selves, ongoing. We can call this position as truthness. And the truthness should be accessible by a kind of “clear vision”. And to access this “clear vision” we probably need personal ways . Already drawed or will be drawed by our selves.

This report is about story of a lazy or crazy one who is trying to be on the way.

Of course I don’t like so definite things and “aims” so that this “with and without me”

Some pictures from trip:

On Ushguli Road:

A beholder of time in Upper Svaneti:

And me:

At the moment am in Tbilisi Georgia.
Probably 27Th day of the trip.

Sorry man but your Google translations simply do not make sense. I can't understand your narration.

Hi Can, welcome on board and thank you for sharing with us your attitudes to life and your journey.

Although the google translation is somewhat lacking I understand the gist of what you are saying - that it is too easy for us to let others trap us in the ratrace (like a chicken in a coop destined to only lay eggs and never know anything else of life) and that we need to create our view of what the world means to us.

Have a great journey and please share more with us.

Thanks for sharing...Google translates fine...Yes we have to work at it to get the idea but it's a heck way better than trying to read Turkish.
Keep it up and share some more. A good beginning. Safe travels
greetings from Canada
