It is time to boast about our future month 😉 We are going to India! We will be in Mumbai, than going to Palolem in Goa and than will exploring Tamil Nadu District.
Maybe we will visit an Meenakshi Ashram in Madurai but it depends if we will have enough time. I would like to stay there bacues you can practice yoga in this ashram. But also you have to be a part of ashram life so have to wake up at 5 a.m., and help in ashram. I think it could be a fantastic feeling of being a poart of something more than only your life.
Soooo! We are very excited but also a little bit scared because this will be our first trip to Asia. And we don’t have husbands who can defend us against whole world 😉 But we have each other so I hope everything go right 🙂
We are prepared. Look at that 😀
We have two cups, two head flashlights (it will be a funny view 😉 ), little heater to heat the water on the Doha airport where we will be nomadize for 24 hours, water disinfaction tabs, ear plugs (if somone will be snoring in the plane ;)), thermal blanket. And as I know myself I will forget a toothbrush 😉
Keep the fingers crossed! 🙂
I get a wonderful gift for Christmas. My girlfriend gave me a invitation for a mindfulness workshops. Do you know mindfulness?
See this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3nwwKbM_vJc
Mindfulness for me is mostly like yoga but it’s focusing on how to be observant.
Do you have a lot of thoughts in every minute of your life? I do. Even if I’m trying to relax my mind is full of thoughts so I can’t completly chill myself. Some of this thought are stressfull, some are terrifying, some are full of anger, some are just planning, some trying to remind something from the past. But they still are. My girlfriend says that “man can not to think” I disagreed with this but…
I started to try. I read a book of Eckhart Tolle. Do you know him? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rdgO4UDrwm8
Great guy. He was just an ordinary man and one day, in 29, he dicided to change his life. Started to dive into himself and now he is sooo calm that when I’m watching films with him I even think that maybe sometimes he is too calm 😉 Joking. I would like to be in 1% so concious as he is.
So I read that book. I started to watch films with him, even taking a bath I was going to the bathroom with my mobile and trying to focus on his words 🙂
Something snapped in me. Changed inside me. I was REALLY able to focus. I was focusing on eating, on food, on my hands when I was going to work. Focusing on clocks ticking.
So Eckhart is good for the start. No. Wrong. He was good for the start for me. Maybe for you he is good for all your life. But for me it was not enough. I was able to be focus but only for a moment. But stress comes in other moments.
So I’m searching for something more. For something which focus me for hole day. Something which will make me chilled for all day. In every situation. So I started to practice yoga. But abut that, next time… 🙂
