"The pursuit of truth and beauty is a sphere of activity in which we are permitted to remain children all our lives." ~Albert Einstein
Taking time to absorb and digest the significance of India is something that I know has started a stirring...a fire in my soul that has begun a new road of deeper understanding and knowing. It is all just the beginning...and just when I feel this deeper understanding I soon come to realize that I don't know anything at all...still...and maybe it doesn't matter...because when life is felt through the heart there is a boundless wealth of riches that can never diminish. The challenging part is to continue to remember...and not forget...but if I do...which I probably will...I have faith that I will make my way back because there are better tools for me to use now...there is inspiration that I have pulled from others who have uplifted me and have been the example of compassion, love, and lightness. So...even though I feel as if I am on shaky ground I can use each moment as an opportunity to to trust more...to love...and hopefully to laugh and open. Even as I write this I can say that these are still challenging things for me to open into...but the awareness is there...and at least I can look inside, feel what I'm truly made of , and be more of who I am. Isn't that what we are all after anyway? I dunno.
So...do I miss India? Yes! Like crazy...and it still baffles me as to why...its an amazing place...that digs deeper into you than one can ever expect or hope to realize...strange...but true.
"Men acquire a particular quality by constantly acting a particular way...you become just by performing just actions, temperate by performing temperate actions, brave by performing brave actions." ~Aristotle
So...after a long hiatus...I'm back...back to blogging. Its a bit unfortunate that I haven't kept up with it for there has been much that has happened since my last blog. However, I'll just have to fill in the blanks the best I can. I have since left Mysore, India and would like to recap my trip...that will be coming...I'm still piecing together the significance of my Mysore experience and will be posting that very shortly. So, from Mysore I made the fairly short flight over to Thailand...Bangkok that is...and let me just say...coming from the simplicity of Mysore, India after a four month stay...and then going straight to Bangkok can be quite a shock for the system!! Talk about going from one end of the spectrum to the other! Anyway...after about 12 days in Bangkok...I made my way up to Chiang Mai...to extend my time with a little special someone...However, soon it will be time for me to head back home...and for some reason I feel ready to do as such...more to come. Peace.
