My 6 days in Colorado were filled with a combination of ancient teachings and great friendship and love. It’s so amazing to learn about different cultures and to understand how we may all be different in many ways but we are all the same in so many.
Our world right now is fraught with anger, pain and a lot of marginalization. There are many people who are fighting over what religion, belief system, race or concept is the “Right” one. Bottom line is that there is room enough in this world for all walks of life and it is time to get over the judgment and bullshit. It is time to simply be kind and consider how you manage your own behaviors on a daily basis.
I have been blessed to have met some of the kindest, warmest and humble people on this journey so far. Each of the communities I got to meet with had the same dream I have and that is to find the best version of themselves and give the best of themselves to the world at all times with no judgement. This is often more challenging than not as the daily grind tests us and pushes us on every level.
Take time to be grateful for all that you have and don’t focus so much on what you don’t have. Wes my one teacher shared two statements with me, “No healing can occur without safety” and the second was “What you have yet to own, owns you”. These two statements resonated with me immensely as often we become so focused on what we don’t have that we forget to be grateful for what we do.
The last seven years of walking this journey with the myriad of infections, chronic pain, surgeries and constant challenges has opened my eyes to how truly blessed I am in so many other ways. It has taught to appreciate every “good” day and be gentle with myself on the tough days.
So in ending this latest entry all I can say is that I loved every minute of my time with the special friends and communities I met in Colorado and look forward to the next part of my journey .
