Goa, accepting being imperfect



It took some time for writing a new post since the previous one. A lot has happened, especially on the emotional level. After arriving back in India in Kerala, we found out that we want to travel by motorbike. More freedom, more easy for a lot of things. The search for a bike brought us back to Arambol, Goa. Sooner as expected, we found a nice Royal Enfield bike!

There was also something else. In Holland I walked against the same wall over and over again in my life so I went to a meeting with a teacher. And after that, I started with their morning activities at the beach for removing blocks in your body. Finally, I decided to follow their intensive life training for 14 days, without phone, laptop and speaking (except in the meetings). I wanted to feel life and living my life joyful.

The training brought me a lot of clarity about myself, my mind and his believe systems, feeling life and sparkle in me. After the training the process went on strongly. A new phase of my life started. I was allowed to help at the camp of the training and I even wanted to do the next training. But then… I kept struggling with myself. So I wanted something to change to feel myself being joyful…

Being imperfect

Finally, after a lot of struggling with things that were happening it became clear to me. I felt so much pressure from myself wanting to be perfect. And I could not agree with some things the teacher was doing, one of them was predicting the future. This influenced my mind and then you will create it yourself. Also it took my open mindedness to life. I decided to choose for accepting myself as being imperfect and stopped everything with the camp. And then I found myself being joyful and a lot more.

And the whole thing is not only to accept myself being imperfect, it is also accepting other people being imperfect. Even if you have a different look at some things. So we will leave next week through Khajuraho and Varanasi to Nepal, to meet a friend of Tilasmi. As a professional clown in the US he does good work for children in Nepal. And other opportunities are coming in by another friend of Tilasmi from Holland. So I am curious to these new adventures! BEING IMPERFECT on the road of life!!!
