The beautiful trees were willingly shedding their clothing, to be nude in the cold.
This was deliberate and necessary for the test,
A test on patience,
A test on surrender,
A test on strength,
A test on acceptable,
A test on trust,
A test on living…../
The trees undressed knowing the one responsible for living and death has got them. They know no matter how battered they are by the cold, it’s alright; they will either live or die. Whatever the outcome, the soul of the world knows it was there.
It was shade, it was oxygen, it was beauty, it was a landmark and most of all, it was the universe coming to life!
Do not send your brain to run your race,
Do not send your brain to fall in love,
Do not send your brain to worship your God,
Send your brain to the smarts,
Use it wisely
At the beginning of this year I would have never thought I will come to enjoy running so much. I enjoy it so much, I woke up at 6 in Bali and went for a run! It was glorious! The terrain was rough, it started raining, I met wonderful people, I got lost, and came back. I completed 6kms in 45mins, this is not my best time but it’s my time.
Running has taught me to have patience and respect my body. Some days my will is stronger and more willing than my body, and that is ok. It’s not always easy but the body rewards; in more stamina, more energy, less injuries and overall happiness .
I have also discovered that running is the easiest way of learning new places. I know the street names, I know the early morning rituals that are performed in temples and I have seen the city awaken.
I would suggest a holiday run to anyone, you won’t regret it
