It was a long weekend. I’m so thankful and grateful that I spent most of the time outside, hiking, running, going to church, etc. Hiking though makes it longer, it felt amazing. It’s definitely different from those weekends I just spent at home not doing anything cool but watching movies, eating cooking etc.
I discovered, that if you travel far; days and hours becomes longer; but if you stay in the same place, ours and days flies so quickly. So now, if you want to have a long long weekend, go travel and have fun. Go on a long hike, go see the world, I mean it’s free to hike, money is not a problem. You’ll become Mentally and physically healthy without money. Money is not a problem, it will only make things better.
I used to just walk to MTC before from my current place because I just want to have fun walking. Who cares, they don’t. Besides, I was on a budget and at the same time I was on my mental health goal. First time to feel so happy having nothing just like the old times. Walking to school and back home, it’s so healing. I feel happy for whatever reasons. There’s just something in walking that’s so cool. I feel more alive, moving and knowing that I am heading the right way.
People do crazy things just to make them happy, I sometimes do when I forgot what really makes me happy. I mean it’s not luxury, it’s not plenty of money, neither gadgets(it once addicted me), neither food, nor clothing. All of those stuffs, I got only are temporary feelings, just temporary; after which, it’s gone; but walking makes you feel normal, alive, kicking, going, moving on, inclusive, a part of this whole universe and most importantly a citizen to this beautiful earth.
It felt so good to be connected to the earth, to walk around it for free. Looking at the sky, the stars and the moon felt so relaxing. I mean it’s better than coffee. Way better than shopping. That genuine feeling of just being you. You’re listening to your surroundings, you’re alert, you met new people, it’s never boring to walk around in the morning.
Yesterday, I listened to the preacher and he also emphasized the importance of connections. Spiritually, when you’re connected to the one, your good prayers will be granted. It was a story of faith and turning into the devine when everything else wouldn’t work. A story of hope and trust. We are called to trust the unknown, to believe in a God that we couldn’t see. To take that risk of turning into the unknown. To allow the impossible to happen. To let magic do its job.
The Past happened for a reason so it has to be thanked not hated. We learned a lot of wisdom from it that we can apply now. Now is the second chance we’ve been waiting for us to correct what we could have done right before. If we will still do it the wrong way, then we still haven’t learned our lesson, the same life experience or story will keep on repeating until you change direction to make things right.
To accept what we have done wrong in the past is a form of repentance, and when you repent and forgive yourself for the wrong deeds you have committed unintentionally because of FEAR, or if you have made a poor decision in the past because of FEAR and ignorance, and you have acknowledged it, you have accepted yourself, you’re automatically letting go of that ego.
To forgive yourself is to do things right when chances showed up. Just do it the right way this time. But in order to do that, you must acknowledge what you have done wrong in the past that causes bullshits in your life and in other’s lives. See it clearly then do what must be done. You already know what and how ☺️ Trust the unknown.
