Getting lost

That early morning, when you wake up and open your eyes slowly… you suddenly feel a rush of desire to explore overtake your body and mind.  You grab your phone and text your friend, “Let’s get lost today, let’s go explore and experience!”.  She texts you back, “Yes!”

Living in today’s fast-paced world, it is so crucial to remind ourselves what truly matters.  It’s important to find friends that are soul mates who, no matter what, will sign up for an adventure with you.  Go for rides, travel spontaneously, surf the waves of the mysterious ocean or do anything that brings joyous challenge into your daily routine. You can help each other find yourselves by getting lost…

This is how the day started for two Makara’s Bike Gang girls in Bail.  They went out for a ride in the rice fields and had a chance to be in the moment, ride between the mountains, rivers and beaches.  It’s such a meditating experience to be able to be free-spirited souls, who are capable of running faster than wind, yet planting the seeds of peace within.  These small moments re-introduce confidence into our lives and it is powerful if we are able to recognize what makes us better.  For ourselves and for the world.
“A Free Spirit isn’t a rebel. A free Spirit is simply free within oneself. Radiating their light up and out to breathe the sweet medicine of new rhythms and roads into an often stagnant world.” Victoria Erickson
So get out there and live your life with fear set aside.  Do not let routine define you.  Shine! Make friends, learn about places, admire people, be active and above all – explore yourselves.  While doing all of this remember: peace is not a destination, rather it is a present moment.
