While sharing an intimate talk with my sister on the quiet beach of Southern India, she told me something that reminded me how it is the mind that shapes and shifts our reality. This is what she said:
Two weeks had passed since I arrived in India and I sat at the bank of the Ganges river in Rishikesh reflecting on all that I had experienced. To sit in silence with only the sound of the rivers silent caress against the shore was new to me and much needed. The India I had seen, heard, touched, and tasted was not mellow in any way.
