I’m going to Mexico, as this is repeated in my mind, my thoughts of excitement and anticipation of what’s to come make me smile. I am on a quest to find my purpose, so I ask myself;
How will I react to?
Sight ….Touch …Taste … Sound…Thirst…Hunger…Pain….Balance …
What will I see — Will I see sadness? Will I see happiness? Will I see contentment? I ask myself will I see these things in the people and places or will I see them in myself.
What will I touch — Will I be physically or spiritually touched?
What will I taste — Will I taste the food or the love that was put into the food as it was being prepared?
What will I hear – Will hear happy sounds, sad sounds. Will I hear the Ocean? Will I hear the sounds of a people wanting something better or will I hear the sounds of a people content with things as they are.
What will I thirst – Again will this be physical or spiritual?
What will I Hunger for – Will it be food, the hunger to want to help others or the hunger to help myself
Will there be pain – Will it be painful to see the ways of others or will it pain them to see my ways?
As I embark on this adventure I hope to experience all of the above in both the physical and spiritual. I hope that what I have to offer people will also be what they can offer me. The smiles, hugs, tears and good-byes will be part of what I look for – Balance.
When I get back I will be able to reflect on my list and see what the results are. Stay tuned.
