Goodbye India

I am sitting in an internet shop near Chennai (Madras) airport, highly excited because tomorrow I meet my partner and children, the day after I meet my parents and my sister and her family, but very depressed because tomorrow I'm also leaving India.

After this trip, I know that my soul is part Indian, I must have been here before. Although on the material side it was a nightmare (I have been sick all the time, unable to eat and sleep properly, prey to fever, insect bites and tourista and so on), on the emotional and spiritual side I have been truly blessed. In a very humorous and matter of fact way, God has been giving me the answers that I had been praying for, with the help of the most amazing guide. I feel humbled and stunned, lucky and so much alive ! I also feel I am no longer a child, but at last a grown-up !

God's message to me ? "Work harder in all you do" ;o)
Amongst other things... (Hey, you have to work too, can't tell everything lol)

I have thought about you just about every day, hoping you were finding the answers and having a good time in doing so. It sounds like it was a spiritual success. I bet it's going to be great seeing your loved ones and sleeping in you own bed.

Welcome home you've been missed!

Oh thanks Grace, this is so sweet of you ! I did feel as someone was watching over me :o)

Reuniting with my home and loved ones was bliss !

Am glad you are safely home and reunited with your loved ones. Got your elephant postcard the other day and it was a most welcome surprise - set among my "special things" on a shelf in this room where I spend so much of my creative time, do yoga, etc.

Tu étais en ... Inde?!
Who le choc!

Ou alors j'ai loupé un truc (la faute à l'anglais hein si c'est le cas ^^).

Bref, hum, trop choquée pour dire quoi que ce soit en fait.

J'aurais quand-même pleins pleins de questions mais je te laisse atterrir. :)

Glad you liked it Acey !

Hélène H said...

Et oui, surprise, j'ai fini par craquer ! J'ai hâte d'en discuter avec toi, Kori ! :o)

Oh, I am so glad your trip fulfilled what you were looking for. And I know your family will be enriched by your experience, too.
