India moves the depth of my being.
The intensity of each moment demands you to be present. To witness the reality of the present moment in its total beauty and unpleasantness. Each moment is a training to be mindful - look at each step but look out for traffic, listen for traffic/sounds of the animals and rain, smell the divine/not so divine, savour the rich food, feel the rain/oils/beautiful textiles... you would think this would be overwhelming but really it’s very relaxing. It all brings me to this beautiful and unique moment of NOW, with a sense of appreciation for everything in life - the good and the bad.
For we need both to be alive.
Being in India is a GREAT MINDFULNESS EXERCISE. I have so much respect for the Indian culture and gratitude for this amazing lesson. It’s something I will take home with me...
You can try it too. Take a moment and make a mental note of all of your 5 sense. How do you feel? Share with me in comments!
