Check out ancient structures... Stay in a historic town.
They can divulge secrets that no book can ever tell you about what has really
happened thru the ages!!
We may think that our ‘current’ is very different from all these people who lived before us! People from the past who rode on horses does not seem relatable when we are worried about making our monthly car-payments!!
We may wonder- how can history teach us about the pressures of living up to the whim of our social circle- in the increasing presence of social media, when there was no Twitter, Facebook or fast communications in ancient times!
History has a way to teach us- not just about what has happened in the past but also how it can help us to resolve our problems and issues in the present. What is needed of us, is an ability to look beyond the external dissimilarities and to find to the underlying common thread of human life- this has and will continue to stay the same…
Even though it is great to immerse oneself in such history places. It is not always convenient or possible for people- particularly in today’s times- where travel itself has its own challenges!!
And if nothing else- visit the local museum and get a feel for the past. Look at the various artifacts and get to know the chronicle of events in that area- try this out!!
Many a times, when we know the history and truly understand the morphosis, transformation of that region over the years- it helps one to feel a deeper connection with all those who have lived there in the past and also a deep connection with all the residents who are now that community.
You will be amazed at the profound way in which you will start to re-see your own local region- ‘as if with a set of new pair of eyes’!!
