I had one of the best weeks of my life. I have traveled to the other side of the world, arrived in a strange country, to strange people, to do unknown things, good things. I have met amazing people and have seen magnificent places. I have been to heaven and gone back, no, I am not back yet. I do not think I will ever be back.
I had never seen such a rich culture. Rich in love, modesty, humbleness, care for others, nature, clean water, patience, mountains, snow, curiosity, food, hospitality, faith, and many others. I had never had so much food in my life, I never had so much cheese, I don’t like cheese much and I learned to like it. I drank the purest water from a beautiful waterfall in the middle of the mountains. I bathed in the coldest, most clear water in a natural spring that created a natural outdoor pool. My eyes enjoyed the most beautiful white mountains, a true place to feel the energy from earth by listening to it. My hands touched the greenest grass while I closed my eyes and listened to the silence in between the mountains, true silence within nature, a deep connection. I climbed the longest path to experience heaven, and it was so worth it.
People who did not know anything about me opened their arms to me, and that means so much. They let me in their homes and told me their stories; the only thing is that I did not understand a word of what they said sometimes. Although, that was not a problem, we communicated with each other with our eyes, and body gestures. I have never tried so hard to make someone understand what I am trying to say. I drew pictures on paper and showed images, I tried what I could, when I did not feel shy. The best thing is that they wanted to understand, they tried and did not give up.
It is amazing how you can gain so much from so little. I did not need much to enjoy my experience. It was much about intuition, being a good person, loving one another and letting others into my life. It is about seeing the positive side of it, because if the negative is ignored it will eventually disappear. It is about taking risks and not being afraid of failing, because you will always gain, no matter the outcome. Patience, resilience, strength, faith, courage, respect and perseverance will help you through the obstacles you will have to face. There is no way back only forward. While you are struggling to do your own things, help others; this will inspire you like no other. It will give you a reason to keep going and following what you believe in. My day is not over, it will never be. It is composed of constant steps that no earthquake can stop them. Many times they are big, other times small, depending how strong the wind is blowing. I try to walk and watch where I am going, I follow the current, if I have to change the route I do, even if it will take me longer to arrive; because at the end it is all about the journey, not the destination.
Thank you to all who made this possible. You know who you are.
