I feel like it was just August 1st and I just started this blog. And now I am writing my final post here in Mysore. It’s 10:30 pm and my taxi will be arriving here at 1 am to bring me to the airport…seriously?? Still so surreal.
I don’t really have the words to really tell you all what this trip means to me but also what it has done for me. But I can tell you that I am forever grateful for my time here. I was blessed to have met and made friends with some of the greatest people, practice with one of the greatest teachers, and practice one of most brilliant kinds of yoga there is.
To my family and friends, immediate and extended, thank you for your unconditional love and support. For believing that I could actually pull this trip off. Words cannot describe me love for you all.
To my friends I made here, thank you for accepting me for me and being such a huge part in this journey. I know in my heart that you will always be a part of my life, no matter how many miles are between us. I love you all more than you know.
To my teacher Sharath, though he will never read this or know how I feel, but thank you for showing me I am capable of more than I thought, for not judging, and helping me establish my faith back. And showing me how truly transforming this practice can be.
Not gonna make this long, so I’m gonna try to wrap it up. If I can tell you all anything, the first would be don’t be afraid to make a change, take a risk. If things are just not working, do something about it, only you can. We are always so worried about doing the wrong thing, but to me the worst thing you could do is not listen to what the heart is telling you. Don’t be trapped by the boundaries we create, just go!!! Or as Sharath would say “don’t think, just do”. If it takes traveling the world to do thing, the even better. Go see it, your world with get so much bigger once you see all it has to offer.
Lastly have faith. Faith that everything happens as it should, and that it has a bigger and better meaning. Faith that your hearth speaks the truth. Faith in a greater force. Faith in yourself. We are all capable of anything, but our minds tell us otherwise. Just have faith.
Like i said, I don’t have the words to sum up this trip. Words can’t do it justice. Life is so so sweet, open your eyes and more importantly your hearth. Then you will see the world open up and work in your favor.
Love and light,
