On my first evening I chose to stay at the hotel for dinner because it was such an easy choice (actually I did stay there almost every night). On my way to cafe I ran into man called Stefano. We had dinner together and shared interesting conversation about dharma and ayurveda. It is kind of funny how deep conversation you can have with someone complete stranger. It must have something to do with the fact that you don't know anything about that person and it makes it all easier. This was again good example what happens when you travel alone and be social in some extent.
India wasn't just roses and laughter. I experienced strong feelings of frustration also. I was frustrated with myself during one yoga class. In the middle of the class I noticed that I'm pushing myself much further that my body was able to handle that moment. And even though I realized that I was still continuing my practice the same way. Which of course made me not only frustrated but also very angry with myself. It was against everything that I always teach and still I ignored my body and was pushing it too far. I tried to figure out reason for my behavior but didn't find the answer. It kind of felt like I was complete outsider in that situation. Luckily this was only that one time that I was doing my practice ego ahead. And maybe it also taught me something.
The ocean wasn't the only thing that made me think about the fact how limited our life actually is. A friend of the staff suddenly passed away and everyone was pretty upset about it. One morning whole staff went to beach in front of hotel surfing in memory of this person and said their goodbyes to this person in this special way. And all this was so beautiful, so caring and full of love that all of us (the guests) were just silently following this event. And this made me realize so clearly that life is now. And first thing it made me do was to sign up for surfing lesson.
How that turned out? And what else happened? That you'll find out later. Stay tuned. 😉
