I feel so happy to be going to India again soon.
I’ve traveled a lot in my life, but I’ve never felt anything like what I feel in India anywhere else in the world. I haven’t been back for a few years and I really miss this sacred land.
I didn’t live in India for long, my maximum stay was just a month. But this month changed my life.
This place is magic.
Imagine going out without any special agenda. You are walking towards your motorbike – and it all begins:
You meet extraordinary people, you see magical things that make no sense to your logic, you feel spiritual connections everywhere… This was my experience.
Sometimes I would wake up early in the morning feeling intense vibrations in my heart and instead of meditating I would jump on my motorbike and go for a ride, feeling so alive! Somewhere. Anywhere. It didn’t matter. But given what was happening inside me, these morning rides were the best spiritual practice.
I had no idea what was going on, but I knew it was special. And I could never get enough of it.
The heart vibration is so strong in India. You can’t help feeling it everywhere you go. You see it in people’s smiles. In people’s eyes.
And people smile. And they also look you in the eyes.
And if you are in an empty bus they will sit on the seat right next to you. Because they want to know you… 🙂
This place is so special.
Goa is not the full-on India, it is very westernised. There are a lot of western people who come to spend the winter there, live full time, or travel.
All these people are happy because they’ve come to do something they love, outside of the box and away from normal office life. Many come to start a business they’ve always dreamt of, play music, teach yoga, make and sell paintings.
The cost of living is low. So to go from A to B, or buy fruit or eat fresh fish or sea food in an incredibly beautiful restaurant costs 5 times less than it would in the West.
Not to mention the delicious Indian food!
People also enjoy getting inexpensive Ayurvedic treatments that fit your unique constitution, oil massages and beauty treatments.
It is a very multicultural place, and your age or where you come from don’t matter.
According to Wikipedia, Goa is India’s smallest state by area and the fourth smallest by population. Also Goa is India’s richest state. It is a former Portuguese province; the Portuguese overseas territory of Portuguese India existed for about 450 years until it was annexed by India in 1961.
Goa is separated into North and South, North being more “party” and south being a place people go to relax with their families.
Also, I’m not exaggerating when I say that Goa has the best market in India, if not the whole world! The Saturday night market, followed by the flea market. There are also numerous designer shops that are open daily.
