- Get Involved
Today is December the 1st of 2012, the day that brings to an end the two fastest months of my life. We used to say that time flies when having fun, but the word fun can’t nearly describe the way I felt in this amazing experience at Awakened Life Project....
It is not only fun the fact that you realize that we all have an Authentic Self ready to come out to the world. That, for me, is the most beautiful thing I learned in my life. Realizing that we all share it makes me want to scream and makes me feel the happiest woman in the whole universe!
In this two months I not only met the most wonderful, incredible, crazy, freaky, hairy, lovely, wise, sweet, happy and authentic people in the world (that I’ll dare to call my family), but I also got to know myself as a strong and capable woman with a lot of values, purposes and goals in life, as a part of a wholeness, as an important and fundamental individual of a community and a unique consciousness.
After two months of no meat, just vegetables and a lot of beans, of facing my fear of insects and actually accepting and recognizing their great part in this whole, of contributing with my donation in the bank (dry toilet) and therefore to the garden, after learning to pick wild greens and getting stung by a few, after deep meditation and self recognition, after achieving absolute trust, love and transparency with my friends Dani and Andrea, after many happy and deep breakfasts, lunches and dinners, after donkeys, chickens, Nina, Sammy, Lucky, Bob, Tux and Lola; after realizing how perfect life is by putting us in the right place at the right moment with the right people....After all of this I can say life is wonderful!! We have the opportunity to choose how to live it. And I’ve chosen to stay humble with a smile on my face and totally committed to live it beyond what separates us.
This is by far the most growing experience I’ve ever had. Thank you everybody in the ALP community! I love you all!
