8 Lessons from My 8 Day Solo Journey into the Himalayas...
Life ensures an adventurous experience for one and all. While it has beautiful peaks and mountains, it also has deep valleys. One cannot exist without the other. Without the ups and downs of life won't life be called death? Probably that's why when we are not too happy with life, we tend to say our life is dead or has plateaued!
May be what we really want or need is a state of mental joy...a state of true happiness. I say 'mental joy' instead of happiness because happiness can come with temporary favorable situations that give pleasure.
“Probably then we can become like rivers, flowing as gracefully through the mountains as through the plains and valleys."
For me, when I have the need to balance my mind, nothing works better than either taking a good brisk walk or sitting in meditation.
