#04: Osho Mediation Resort

Osho Mediation Resort:Osho was an Indian philosophy professor and later on a Guru for many people – specially in the west. His followers are also called Sanyassin.                                                                                                                                            He was a great speaker and teacher in meditation and found a way to explain the eastern philosophy to the western society.  He was killed in the 90s. Still today they offer different meditations from early morning to late evening. My mum was Sanyassin. So I was growing up with that stuff.          Thats why I had more than ever the feeling, like  I have to step in mums footstep and follow her way to understand where I am coming from, and how I adapt and understand it today in comparison to my earliest years in my childhood.

Task for the day: WHO AM I? I got this today from the others: I am an angel (my name), I am a strong independent person, I am a rebel, I am crazy (traveling alone).

# Lesson Learned today:

Indian is a country which might be poor, but its the richest country in spirituality. It concerns the highest value of consciousness. If you want to meet the country and learn, you have to go with open eyes and connect to the people.

#03: Goodbye Mumbai – hello Pune

Goodbye Mumbai – hello Pune. 

Today I took an early trip from Mumbai to Pune, also called Poona. Enough loud and crowd area. Because I didn’t get any train, I had to take  local bus from Mumbai to Pune. Took me around 4 hours. And I was’t just the only European person there, I also was the only woman there.  Never the less I had a nice conversation and a comfortable trip.

In Pune I will visit Osho meditation resort for the next 2 days.                                                                                                                                                                                                               Today I was just there to register and to make an aids test, which you need to get in.                                                                                                                                                                                                                       I stay here at the beautiful apartment with Kanika and Mitesh, a very smart indian couple, which are moving to the US in one month.

# Lessons Learned today:

It’s totally fine, to be a rebel in my age. It’s the time of finding yourself. Breaking the order and normality of your current lifestyle and society. YEAAAAAAARRRH!

#02: Culture shock Mumbai

India, Mumbai:Mumbai, officially named Bombay until 1995, is the financial capital of India and the home of India’s Bollywood film industry. Also called India’s “maximum city”, Mumbai is known for its extreme standards of living, fast paced lifestyle, and the making (or breaking) of dreams. It’s a cosmopolitan and increasingly westernized city that’s an important base for industry and foreign trade.

Its very crowded, dusty and dirty and loud. If you want to cross a street, you have to fight for life and you always have to be aware of their price system and dealing, because everyone is trying to cheat you.

…Well, not everybody. I met so kind and nice people, which helped me, guided me, bought me tickets, food,  just to be sure I am fine and well treated in India.

# Lessons learned today:
India is bigger than I expected.
Everything needs longer than I planned. So take more time! Plan with more buffer.

#01: Stopover Dubai. The 4-week-habit plan

Dubai Airport:  After 2 hours of sleep. Awake at the Dubai airport. Time to make a plan.

The 4 weeks habit plan. Idea: Choose maximal 3 habits you don’t like in yourself and change them into good ones or choose a good habit that you like to become a habit. Bit these “good habits” should stay achievable. By doing things consciously and regularly, you can change your bad habits or non available habits into good habits in 4 weeks. Write it down and start tomorrow.

Here my 4-week-habit plan:
1. Smoking, when drinking (probably learn drinking without smoking)
2. First thing I do in the morning after wake up: Coffee & Laptop – Change into meditation & Yoga every morning first. Especially mediation, It is what I need to ease my confused mind.
3. Today we are all focused on ourselves and even me sometimes, more selfish than unselfish. Collect more positive karma and make every day someone smile. Its all about giving and receiving in life.
# Lessons learned today: Buy a power supply adaptor for Dubai to work if I have to stay here more than 1-2 hours at the airport

“If you’re alone, I’ll be your shadow. If you want to cry, I’ll be your shoulder. If you want a hug, I’ll be your pillow. If you need to be happy, I’ll be your smile… But anytime you need a friend, I’ll just be me.” ~ Unknown

“When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives means the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving much advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a gentle and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares.” ~ Henri Nouwen
