There are also those moments when everything seems dark and you can’t see the road, you need to stop for a while. Lately I’ve been realizing that I’m maturing. No matter what plans we make for life, life itself can ultimately bring them completely differently. To create situations we didn’t foresee, to bring people from nowhere, to create crossroads or forks for us… But when the path is dark and you don’t know where to go, then a walk in nature can be really helpful.
I drove down to the church of Zoodochos Pigi and from there I walked to the river. I just wanted to be alone for a while. When I enter the mountain it’s always different. They may be the same mountain and the same forest, but they are never the same. It is alive, it has age, something changes every day, I don’t know what I will encounter every time. I come out of there cleaner and the mind is lighter… Without me doing anything, it empties itself…
I’ m walking aimlessly, enjoying the forest. I’ m standing to see and hear the waterfall. I’m balancing the river stones, a game that helps me with my own balance too. It makes problems seem like they never existed and questions get answers. It’s a mystery, but it’s true. For the first time I’m managing to balance three stones, one on top of the other. I think I’m getting better at it! It requires patience and calmness.
If you’re dealing with anxiety or questions that make you choke up, try visiting such an environment. It helps a lot to be alone… The sea is also a good option, for those who don’t have a mountain or forest near them.
I just wanted to say “hello” here as well, because I’ve been blogging less and less for the past few months. A lot has happened during this time, but mostly inside me. Seemingly things are the same.
So have fun! I’ll try to update you soon on the day-to-day here.
Until then I send you a hug!
