Today’s Gem: “We are knee deep in a river, searching for water. We are part of an invisible river, but we are so distracted by outer things and what we imagine they could mean to us that we lose contact with the source of our own Being. When we are caught in desire, in form, in externals, we are pulled out of ourselves into a fantasy world, a desire world. We lose touch with the invisible river, the waters of life, through our identification with unconscious inner processes and outer demands.”
No Leadership Lessons today as i brought the above book instead to accompany me in my solo trip :)
On another note, this trip has been truly a test of the things I reflected on in my last letter to readers! I was stuck at a bus station for 3 hours, the bus journey took 4 hours longer than expected as it meandered through tiny roads in villages, and I ended up having to overnight at a motel alone whilst my entire family are still a 2-hr journey away from where I am now.
Could have chosen to be anxious and upset, but I choose to be grateful for the wonderful sights and people I meet along the way. Alhamdulillah for the river of life :)
