In our own time and in societies cookie-cutter timeline are two very different things. It's so important to remember and value that the path we are on is exactly where we are meant to be at that moment. It's leading somewhere 🍃 Some self-believed society views may suggest a 26 year old should
•Have a uni degree
•Be settling down
•Working on a career
•Surrounded by a community
•Maybe have a child (or 3) or one on the way
And yet here I am. Focusing on my own natural timeline. Focusing on what makes me happy and cultivating a rich inner world, working towards devine desires with each step. Of course not without hiccups, dives and big case of what the hell am I doing... It's okay, we're human. Currently unemployed, a new yoga qualification, living out of a backpack with no children on the way - yet happy. Consciously learning and being taught by nature, by cultures, by people, by love and by self. All in awareness. It doesn't matter when "you'll make it", but rather doing all you can with what you have today, to get you where you want to be. Manifest the life you want, be in it and trust in the process ✨
The infamous nine arch bridge in Ella, a representation of the chilled outness and pace of Sri Lanka... Walk on the tracks? Sure no worries just watch out for trains... I've found this country to be of a slow pace, untainted by the western posion of rush and immediate gratification. Everything gets done, it just might take a little longer. Is this a bad thing? To be free of the pressures of punctuality and stress? Of course not. It just takes a look at the people of this beautiful country to understand that. They have less in terms of material possessions but their wealth lies in happiness and simplicity. It seems the key to their abudance of life lies in a common consensus, a mutual understanding of a simple truth that is bred, lived and breathed in the East. A truth that isn't taught, just known, passed down by a way of living. The most simple truth in the world: Don't stress, be happy.
I'm trying to absorb the lifestyle and hope I can bring it home with me.
