The path of awakening can sometimes get really lonely.. the silence and company of nature can really bring about deep rooted emotions from the heart – shaking and waking one from within. when it’s calm again, from within – true liberation comes. no more fighting, just truth and trust. i made my pilgrimage to Buddha’s birth place. entered the land barefooted, taking each faithful step towards the temple, tears slowly filled my eyes – an overwhelming experience. wondering how many times, i must have visited this site and how many more journeys i’ll need – before i can let go completely, to drift with the flow entirely.
