On the other hand, co-creation is the beautifully chaotic lovechild between methodical spontaneity and unvarying openness.
It´s the deep laughter.
It´s diving deep into someone's passion.
It´s understanding why they've dedicated their lives to their dream.
It´s listening with every fiber in your body.
It´s about sharing the moment with another human.
It´s being present to create the experience with them.
It´s taking a chance.
It´s moving your life to a new longitude and latitude.
It´s learning a new language, even if it is just a few words a day.
It´s hitchhiking with strangers and leaving as friends.
It´s saying yes to all opportunities for connection.
It´s sharing a home cooked meal.
It´s giving away your gifts.
It´s learning ancient traditions and rituals.
It´s figuring out how to define your personal success in a new social context.
It´s exchanging ideas, skills, and time.
It´s crashing on couches.
It´s opening your couch to be crashed upon.
It´s sharing the sunrise after dancing or talking or listening all night.
It´s being naked, either quite literally or figuratively.
It´s trusting the world even after it hurts you.
It´s knowing that every person shoulders a burden that we can´t see and honoring each one of them by interacting with patience and love.
Co-creation is love. To me, co-creation is falling in love with life, giving all your energy and attention to the moment.
As travelers, we have unbelievable privilege and the rare opportunity to build bridges, help heal deep-rooted wounds, and share our truest selves with those we meet. Miscommunication is the principal source for hate, bigotry, and violence against others. We have the remarkable ability to act as advocates to connect cultures and each other. In the end, we are all one. When we choose to act on the co-creative side of the spectrum, we not only create a more dynamic and stimulating life for ourselves but also induce a chain reaction, bringing more contentment and consciousness to the lives of the never-ending web of those that we touch.
