Life is incredible. I feel happy and totally full of love for myself and this world. This is truly living and experiencing life to the fullest potential. Being around like-minded people who keep you up, culture that is so genuine and kind, nature so vast and powerful, history and devotion so rich - every moment a new opportunity to be present in the exact moment we are in. That goes for everywhere we are - whether traveling or living as our true self back home.
I feel Sri Lanka in its entirety pulsing through my veins so strongly. I will cherish and value this experience more than I have any other. This is our chance to shine brightly as ourselves - just like Jungle Dance with Rachel last night. Closing our eyes and moving our bodies freely, dancing to the beat of our own drum. Then witnessing if and how quickly our rhythm morphs to another persons when we open our eyes. All of us are unique, all of us have different individual paths to our own truth, all of us must flow in our own way aligning with that truth.
The time is always now. We cannot think of whats to come over what is now if we truly hope to live in the present. Worry, doubt, fear, etc. are all very real feelings we often get, however each of those throw us off balance with living life as truly ourselves - to do that we must trust the universe and listen to it along with our hearts at all times with big ears and small eyes. If we ever feel out of balance with this, go to nature for fresh air + fresh perspective. Breathe Deep and do something we know without question is good for our soul - go explore a new place, go outside in nature, meditate, practice yoga, listen to songs that make your heart sing, write your thoughts down, collect yourself and bring yourself back to the present moment. For it is here in the present moment we are alive and as close to the universe as possible.
This universe surrounds us on the outside, and completely fills us on the inside. Trust that. Trust ourselves and the person we were meant to be. Above all - LOVE unconditionally that inner self through every moment. My heart is so full for those around me, the people I've met here are all different versions of myself in which I learned from in past lives, or am still learning from. It is these like-minded people who I will keep in my soul as reference points for my journey through life.
Stay true along my road home. Feel the vibrant colors in my blood, gently rock my head to the left and to the right mixing both sides of the brain, let the breathe roll through my body in its entirety like smooth glassy ocean waves. Close my eyes and simply listen to everything around me and within me. This is life, and the time is always now.
