A quiet conversation!

Q

I toiled up a gigantic mountain which broke my back and body completely. I profusely trudged along the rocky mountain laden with steep rugged boulders and slippery path. The air was getting thin and a slight breeze accompanied the hike up the Himalayas.

I was on the Goechala trail in the Kanchenjunga National Park, Sikkim, India. I heard and seen a lot about the trail in various blogs and websites. I had decided on a certain whim that I had to honor my decision of hiking up the Himalayas.

This opportunity came at the right time. Within a couple of months I was up here heaving myself up the gigantic mountain.

As I reached the final ascent for the day and reached about 12000 feet, I could see the wide expanse of the mountain ranges all over.

There was a subtle conversation with the mountains and my soul. Something in me changed at that moment. For me it was rebirth. I was reborn in the lap of the Himalayas!

Words did not matter

Emotions weren’t surging

Physically I was broken

I was soul arrested.

Deep inside I could see the panorama of my soul!

Wow quite something the quiet conversation was!

Resplendent eyes…

I was intimidated as I looked up at the sky. There were zillions of resplendent eyes looking down at me. My heart missed a beat, my teeth chattered, I had goosebumps on my hand, my soul was filled with an immense pleasure which I cannot fathom. I couldn’t look back them for my pleasure knew no bounds, I was thrilled to my guts.

I knew I was being glared at, mocked at; for I was just a tiny particle amongst the mighty Himalayan mountains and under the milky way. I was at the mercy of nature and thankful for the chance to be amongst the wonders of nature.

4-Oct-2015 1:30 AM was the moment of experiencing the beauty of life.

I could not capture the night sky then but this a picture taken by my friend the previous night.
