MONDAY 🙌🏻 a little bit of sunshine for these grey days we've been having here on the coast
I've been really conscious of trying to take a little more time in my day to appreciate the little, teeny things which are actually the big things. especially this time of year... like my beautiful ragged prayer flags along my balcony that continue to make me smile, and hang strong through all types of crazy weather 🙏🏻
more slowing down + more waking up

I love prayer flags. The idea that the wind spreads the prayers, good will and intentions, to all those around is beautiful. High up into the mountains, with the wind whipping, these prayers spread their intentions for miles and miles. I certainly felt affected by their positivity.
You get a strange feeling when you're about to leave a place,
Like you'll not only miss the people you love
but you'll miss the person you are now at this time and this place,
because you'll never be this way ever again
Maybe happiness didn't have to be about the big, sweeping circumstances, about having everything in
your life in place.
Maybe it was about stringing together a bunch of small pleasures. Wearing
slippers and watching the Netflix. Eating a brownie with vanilla ice cream. Getting
to level seven in Dragon Master and knowing there were twenty more levels to go.
Maybe happiness was just a matter of the little upticks- the traffic signal that said "Walk" the
second you go there- and downticks- the itch tag at the back of your collar- that happened to every
person in the course of the day.
Maybe everybody had the same allotted measure of happiness within each day.
maybe it didn't matter if you were a world-famous heartthrob or a painful geek.
Maybe it didn't matter if your friend was possibly dying.
Maybe you just got through it.
Maybe that was all you could ask for." #travelogues#travelstories#himalayas#sikkim#myhome#countryroads#countryside#homesick#homecoming#roadtrip#serene#prayerflags#prayer#faith#insta#wanderer#wanderlust#wandering_devil#dhruvdevil#silkroute#midnightmemories#mist
""Our prayers may be awkward. Our attempts may be feeble. But since the power of prayer is in the one who hears it and not in the one who says it, our prayers do make a difference."
Sutras, originally written on cloth banners, were transmitted to other regions of the world as prayer flags. Legend ascribes the origin of the prayer flag to the Gautama Buddha, whose prayers were written on battle flags used by the devas against their adversaries, the asuras.Traditionally, prayer flags are used to promote peace, compassion, strength, and wisdom. The flags do not carry prayers to gods, which is a common misconception; rather, the Tibetans believe the prayers and mantras will be blown by the wind to spread the good will and compassion into all pervading space. Therefore, prayer flags are thought to bring benefit to all.
The Boudhanath Stupa in Katmandu, with thousands of prayer flags symbolizing prayers to Buddha from all corners of the earth. Apart from being a UNESCO World Heritage Site, there's something mystical yet immensely peaceful about this place. Seeing is believing.
