Travel Forward

We rated this book:


Travel Forward is undeniably a book of the times! Its part-instruction manual, part-workbook finesse is packed with an appealing amount of useful, everyday advice for leading a happier and more fulfilling existence. Not only a how-to guide for the daily perusal but a fill-in bank for all what makes you you in your 20s, 30s, 40s, and straight through a lifetime. Indeed the era of self-help connoisseurship, Travel Forward delivers a loaded punch into this already booming mix and is, from top to bottom, an inviting contender of wellness coaching and exhibition. The book is comprised of canny exercises for the literal and figurative traveling forward to actual destinations and also into a personal place of peace and accepted wisdom by which the author then adds real oomph with many genius quotes, such as one from Ella Maillart, “one of the main points about travelling is to develop in us a feeling of solidarity, of that oneness without which no better world is possible.” And the notable list goes on. There are quotations from world-renowned speakers from every walk of life, such as Mark Twain, Nelson Mandela, Maya Angelou, Oprah Winfrey, Martin Luther King Jr., Ben Affleck, Sir Winston Churchill, Flannery O’ Connor, and Albert Einstein, John Lennon, all the way to the Zen master, Thich Nhat Hanh. Readers can flip to any page and almost instantly absorb a far-reaching message from the weighty material.

Travel Forward leaves a lasting impression with each turn of the page; combining the concrete and abstract processes of the human condition and its path, Murphy outlines five hefty chapters titled Integrity, Love and Gratitude, Lifetime of Learning, Self-Determination and Oneness, including ample sections dedicated to illuminating stories from important thinkers, their rousing dialogue, and talking points, to walk away with for personal growth and contemplation. And to get started right on this journey of authenticity and the greater self, the nifty list piling and special work in the book piques “five things that you would like to explore,” “think about the ways you have given,” “forgiveness and compassion stories,” “think of several people or causes that inspire you and ways you can pay it forward,” “daily moments,” “simple things that you can do for great pleasure,” “10 words or phrases that best describe you,” “to find and develop passion” and “write a letter to yourself in order to explore feelings and present life.” Travel Forward is a record-keeping of individual journey; a tome to carry onward, in the moment of change and in the livelihood of a progressive, full being, for generations to come.
