In a little less than two weeks, I will be flying off to discover the magical kingdom of Buthan. I will be trekking in the mountains and valleys, sleeping along rivers, breathing the perfect clean thin air, resting in Monasteries, embracing the rugged beauty of the land, its people, enriching my understanding of the Buddhist spirituality. These moments when my body and my mind have no distraction but its surroundings, when each step , painful as it is, brings pure sheer joy...my mind is so in tune with the higher power, God, Buddha...I have a lot of thanks to give...thank you God for protecting my mother and giving her, her health back, thank you for all the love i receive and give every day from my family, friends and sometimes just strangers, thank you for the freedom of running a business I enjoy with people i love. My life is truly a whirlwind, so when I stop, I need to be free of all the "stuff" that makes up my life.
I truly love being in the mountains, and the Himalayas are for me the pure expression of the love and power of God. Climbing on the mountain path, taking the sometimes painful breath brings me closer an closer to a God that I too many times leave behind.
