I am 2.5 hours away from reaching home. Home is in Sonipat, a city in state of Haryana 50km from our capital New Delhi. Coming back after 11 days of a road journey to Leh, Covering over 3200Km crossing states - Haryana - Punjab- Jammu - Srinagar -and finally Ladakh during this time.
Saw Geographical climatic changes everyday. From city traffic to green mountains with rivers & valleys flowing in Srinagar, shepherds grazing their sheep , children playing on road side, huge barren mountains , tree lines vanished , the 135km long salt water lake shared between India and China and what not. I have came back home with a view of a completely different world where some of us (humans) live, in this write up I want to share the most significant of all I have gathered in last 11 days.
Thus if you want to learn it with me, keep your mind and heart open for this new perspective I am going to open for you.
Tso Pangong was our last destination and it was a 6 hour drive from Nubra Valley, while we were on this drive the only feeling I had was being grateful.
Let me try to elaborate. I was in awe with the majestic mountains, rivers, and everything my eyes were catching the sight of. I was so fascinated and came into the present moment completely, It was then I folded my hands in prayer position and was very thankful in the first place for being there & able to have a sight of the majestic nature. The aura of the lofty scapes with mountains was so strong & firm, they were immovable like an Emperor and yet so humble . They were simply there as if letting us also be there in harmony and enjoy their glory. I was only thankful to them for letting me be there and experience the pleasure of giving this treat to my body n soul.
We as humans grow in age and also in our egos. Age increases in number and intensifies the Ego. Nature on the other hand is so magnificent & is yet so humble. We are mere tiny creatures, we are not a thing, and you can see this quality in people living there, in the middle of majestic nature.
We stayed at some really fancy properties like Ladakh Sarai, Stone hedge to name a few. At one of the places, guy who was cleaning our table and serving us food was the owner of that magnificent fancy place itself. I could not believe what I came to know in that moment. At another place the owner himself was taking the luggage from car to our rooms. Yes I was completely in Awe and I am sure so are you right now.
And this is what I am coming back home with -
Be more Humble Drop all your Ego !! You can still be magnificent and majestic and have no Ego.
