I have this CRAZY, WONDERFUL idea for a new goal. The fact that I am even contemplating this show just how far I have come! I am VERY excited about adding this to my journey. The second I thought of it something clicked...I think that it is just the direction I am supposed to be heading...
I am walking to Tibet. The miles that I put in will be subtracted from the distance between where I currently live, and Lhasa, Tibet. 7718 miles.
As my mind continues to quiet, the pull I have to go and immerse myself in the Buddhist experience gets stronger. I have known for a while that, at some point, my life would probably lead me to study with a Buddhist leader. To experience an authentic experience that includes leaving modern creature comforts and focusing completely on what is. I plan on observing a vow of silence, and taking advantage of all that I can from this amazing life experience.
My "Walking To Tibet" will give me a focus for what I am ultimately working towards. It will help me meditate on where life is taking me, and actively choosing what I allow into my world.
THE BEST PART??!!??
WHEN I reach my ultimate goal I am going to book a trip to Lhasa, Tibet. And go ON MY OWN. And do just what I always saw myself doing...SOMEDAY. Someday is now. My life is not on hold. I am actively working toward something that I WILL make happen!
SOOO EXCITED!! Wooot!
