When two souls opened up


“You’ve changed a lot.”

A good old friend claimed that I was a totally different person than three years ago, the last time we met. Two days ago, as we sat on wooden floor of a healing center clinic, we listed changes we perceived in us. Beyond physical and superficial lists, we realized some very fundamental things have changed – or not changed – in us.

The way we view jobs and careers.

The way we view relationships.

The way we view god, faiths and beliefs.

The way we view the world.

The way we view ourselves.

The answer? “Forget it and move on; although it may feel like moving on aimlessly,” he smiled bitterly.

The ayurveda session that I gave to him that Sunday morning was originally to define his prakruti – basic constitution about mind and body – but as two souls opened up themselves, you’ll never know the strong connections that both can build.

Thanks for letting me share your story here, yes you 😉

I found you

I never thought I would have them all again, even in dreams. Now I do.

Indonesia. (In)complete.

Twenty four hours was not enough to explore the City of Bengkulu, let alone the province. But twenty four hours was enough for me to say that I was inspired by a mix of worry, quirkiness, gratefulness, hatred, pride and acceptance. Life feels more present with a mix of these feelings; I felt alive too.

How could devotion turn bad?

Personally, I yearned to be devoted to a person. I fould it beautiful to have all worries and tiredness lifted up knowing I would return home to meet someone I devoted my life to. But I couldn’t lie.
