Saturday morning here in Cusco, a little grey but I feel way better than yesterday. I now know that I have to leave here and follow my vision of creating a Light House in Ibiza however crazy that may appear to many of my friends. I walked through the grey streets this morning and my soul ached for the beach and for the countryside and an overwhelming sense of completion hit me, a sort of little death if you like. I have been involved in this city for over twelve years now in my work with building the home for kids and now it is time for my home even if it is a hut on the beach! I keep thinking that all completions are a kind of death whether it be from relationships, jobs, countries and the only way to deal with them is acceptance and gratitude. If I struggle and fight this I will only make it worse so I might as well enjoy my last moments here and not make a drama out of it! So in a very weird kind of way it is yet another practice of letting go, with love, and if I was off to the pearly gates then I would have to be doing the same thing. Does this make sense??
All our experiences are utterly dependent on how we view them it is that simple so the more we view things with humour and love the more fun we have. Ok enough of trying to be philosophical and I shall whack in a photo.
Well for some strange reason this is Jack´s birthday cake and maybe it appeared here, like magic, to remind me and you that life is a celebration. There is so much to enjoy down here and I know daily I have to keep reminding myself to stay in the present, not a give a damn about the future and really trust that everything I need will be upon my path when I need it. And that goes for all of you as well!!
So on that fabulously positive note I shall now meet a lovely friend and go down to the kids home and have lunch. Have a great weekend.x
