Happy Friday! Back from the Vipassana retreat in Kathmandu, Nepal, and seriously feeling better than ever!
I.TELL.YOU, 10 days in silence with 10+ hours of meditating per day beginning at 4:30 am, observing nothing but your breath and mind will make you come out seeing your world in a whole new way.
The biggest thing the retreat reinforced is that life is in a constant flux.
We know this is true, but still we find ourselves reacting to the bad times and craving for the good times.
No matter what, things will come and go. No matter what, some days we’ll feel better than others.
Despite this constant flux in our lives, it’s how we react to which will determine the happiness of our lives.
Happiness is not a final destination, nor is it just a series of stops we make. It is a way of living, a way of traveling.
With that, and the end of the year approaching how will you start this new year? How will you choose to create happiness in each day no matter where you are in the flux?
p.s. If anyone is interested in learning more about Vipassana, visit their website or contact me. They offer 3-day and 10-day retreats all around the world. It was seriously the most incredible experience I’ve had on this trip. I never would have imagined, but through the retreat I was able to answer many of the questions I had been bouncing around in my mind. And surprise, surprise - I’m happy and excited to announce after Hong Kong I’ll be returning back to San Francisco 😀
