Wether you know it or not, you are constantly influenced by your surroundings. Since the moment you arrived to this world, your five senses are connecting you to your environment and sending feedback to your brain, helping you make better decisions for adaptation and survival.
However, once you become familiar with your environment, life becomes predictable, and it is safe for your brain to 'switch off' and go on 'autopilot mode'. In this way it can save energy and perform more efficiently and effectively.
The problem of spending your life in 'autopilot', is that you are dragged to a predictable destiny. Because nothing new can come from the known. There is no room for major growth or evolution and you might feel stuck in a rut.
By stepping away from your familiar environment, though, your brain has to respond to the novelty of the surroundings. It will start asking different questions, that will lead you to different experiences and emotions, which eventually will translate into a new and different life. Your soul will awaken.
