Around every corner in India is a truth waiting to be revealed. Messy truths. Sacred truths. Gut wrenching truths. Whole truths. Truths about yourself.

India is a living, breathing entity that has its own consciousness and it’s that higher wisdom that is the master control center bringing all those truths to the light. I mentioned to @seanecorn (about the zero fucks given scooter drivers and their affinity for their horns) that i thought the country employs people to push our self-imposed buttons... and while i said it in jest, i actually meant it. There’s brilliance and purpose and divinity at work here... you just gotta get through the shit before you can get to the grace.

Onward. #yoga #thisisyoga #meditation#travelingyogi #india #rishikesh #nomudnolotus
