A meditation on perfection.
Wow. It’s Monday and the start of my fifth week of isolation. I start the day with meditation, and I smile as I grab the gorgeous piece of amethyst that my friend, John, got me from Machu Picchu. I meditate with different crystals in my hand depending on what I feel like, and today I can’t think of a higher energy crystal than this since it’s from Machu Freakin’ Picchu! When I close my eyes my mind went right back there…the majestic three hour train ride… being dropped off at the bottom of Aguas Calientes… taking a small bus that takes us up to the entrance with such jaw dropping greenery and beauty none of us has ever seen before…having a Pisco Sour before starting the hike…and… then…being stunned by the insane beauty of Machu Picchu. Yes, I was back in heaven. I had a hard time meditating in fact because all I could think about was my whole trip and how absolutely incredible and humbling the experience was. Then I thought, when can I experience this kind of heaven again? When can I plan travel? Well, I couldn’t really finish my meditation after these thoughts even after trying for an hour.
As I’m typing this the sun suddenly shines through my window whereas before it was all cloudy. Strange. Strange but awesome. Although I didn’t succeed in meditation today I got to relive my travel experience in my mind as if it just happened yesterday. For this I thank my friend, John. I am so damn lucky!
