During my recent journey across asia I encountered the following:
- Shoes: 10 pairs of shoes came in & out of my life at their leisure. 1 pair was left behind in my old home city, 3 pairs ripped the skin on my feet & had to be given away, 2 pairs were chewed by a dog, 1 pair was taken by the ocean, 1 pair was borrowed & forgotten before ever being used, 1 pair was borrowed & put to good use & given back, 1 pair was taken off of the feet of my guru & given to me. I learned that I will walk the earth far & wide, my shoes will change as my soul grows, & I can not hang on, but merely must keep walking with intention & trust in the power of my feet to take me.
Love: I experienced the full spectrum of Love: frienship, connection, family, history, sponteneity, kindness, intrigue, compassion, passion, fear, confusion, surrender, pain, questions, forgiveness, playfullness, creation, expansion, transformation, overstimulation, & gratitude!
Storms: Storms followed me from place to place, moment to moment, feeling to feeling, lesson to lesson! 1 first storm, countless lightning show storms, rain-dance practice sessions, a month straight of water storms ~ swimming with the plankton under the moon, various powerful & transformative emotional storms, & monsoon storms. The storms always brought with them energy, electricity, change, renewal, cleansing, fresh air, wild waves, luscious clouds, shifting, flowing, awakening, flashes of lightning art, & the smashing together of those elements that needed to be transformed & purified!
Non-Attachment: These 3 things wove in & out of my journey like a colorful braid of lessons guiding me towards profound lessons!
In these next few posts I will attempt to share my experiences with:
