This predator, the green vine was lurking around the bushes, right in front of the homestay we were at, while my friend captured the moment.
Agumbe! This place is filled with pit vipers & king cobras. Just as beautiful the place is, you also gotta be cautious enough not to disturb these beautiful predators while they lurk around for prey.
Just before sunrise, the glimpse of dawn at an altitude of about 1500 meters. The breeze is bone freezing.
When you go on a night trek, you feel the chill as well as the thrill.
As you hike your way to the peak, with flashlights on your forehead, you are at a totally different excitement level. One look above, and the sky is filled with stars, with each step ahead, you reach higher altitudes & the temperature drops. And as you reach the peak, you have to face gusts of wind which can shake you with its chill. Well, this place dropped till 10° degrees.
As you wait and get a glimpse of the sunrise, your heart is satisfied and you are filled with bliss.
A good Sunday morning game on mud can give the best football feeling of your life.
When the game begins, you forget who you really are, you lose your personality and become a new being, who is only living to play the game.
When the ball at your feet, you become a crazy machine, as your brain works so fast, that it becomes surprising to you at certain times, what your legs can really do.
During gameplay, you only turn into an instrument, an instrument of football.
A ball can change the very essence of you life.
These adventures make you know where you really belong.
Oh the joy, the joy & liberation you feel from within is just ecstatic.
The trees, the air, the warmth of a fire & a simple cozy tent to rest in, these simple pleasures are far more blissful than the usual city life.
When you look up, and the sky is studded, the sight of uncountable stars shining bright, that glitterness just reflects into your soul.
The bush crickets and beetles that make noise at night becomes the background music & the fireflies fly around displaying their beautiful light.
Maintaining the fire by placing the wood in proper angles becomes a fun game.
And finally when you rest the night & wake up to set your eyes on the beautiful sun rising towards the east, you will just overflow with bliss.
The encounters of life is so mesmerizing.
Your thoughts start tingling.
As you wander away from town, & go off to a rural place, you experience a certain kind of bliss.
As you live even a day, a minimal life on an village land, you feel a certain kind of liberation.
As you observe their daily life, you understand the difference between social & simple.
As you learn how difficult it is to farm & grow, you learn how to value food.
And as your imagination dives deeper, you start to wonder how confused the social minds really are.
Well, the journey of life sure is something!
A light shines from far far away.
Clouds float above, miles away.
I stand and watch from beneath on earth.
Wondering how tiny a particle I am, & how huge of a dimension space and existence is!
As I myself, float away!
When the colours of existence merge together and create such a beautiful sight.
It makes me wonder!
Even if we merge the colours of our life with the colour of existence, even we will blossom beautifully!
I thank you,
For I carry immense gratitude to you,
As within you, I can see the divine.
You are my closest relation, as we carry our bond through breath.
Because you exhale, I can inhale, and because I exhale, you can inhale.
But without you, I would not sustain. As only you sustain and nurture life.
So I thank you, because consciously or unconsciously, you are the most important part of my life.
You blossom in many ways, and give us many fruits. Your roots are more closer to mother earth than I am. But my soul is also a part of you. And we, are part of the entire existence.
You, are more important than any other physical existence, you are the physical divine.
And so, I thank you, for being one of the reasons, for me to be a part of this existence.
Every adventure leads to wonderful discoveries.
And she, was a beautiful encounter!
Trekking on the way, and from far away, she was at sight!
Aware or not aware, we were drawn towards her. And there she stood.
She was by far, the biggest mango tree I have ever seen in my life.
