I've been spending more time at the Rainbow Cafe, talking to various travelers. Topics of discussion have included world cinema, relationships with nature, and prophecies told by tribes from around the world. Apparently 2012 may be an interesting year for moving up a dimension. My friend Chris here told me how he has chosen to believe in this upcoming event where the world will experience a great energy exchange. Some will go to the other side and some will... who knows? Kind of wild stuff to digest if you're not high like everyone else but what he did say that kind of struck a chord was that he chose to believe in this fantasy of the future because the future's reality was harder to believe in. This was profound to me because, sadly, 20 years from now, I do not believe we will be in a better place. The momentum in which the world is moving towards environmental destruction, war, poverty, and so forth seems unstoppable. I do believe we can slow it down but in five, ten, twenty years... I'm glad I've taken the opportunity to see as much as I can.
I received the typical Indian souvenir yesterday- belly problems. I was so confident that I'd be able to avoid it but bam! weird sharp pains hit me at night. The worst part was rolling around in bed for three hours. I couldn't turn my brain off and I just kept thinking and thinking about different things, having conversations with people in my head. All the while, it felt like a knife was sticking out of my stomach. The next day I popped immodium, drank the guesthouse's host's lemon-salt concoction, and had a reiki treatment performed on me by a Russian girl. When you're in the Himalayas, you try everything, heh. Today, my belly's still out of whack but my head feels better.
You know what's creepy about this blog? You're all getting to know me way too well.
