Fuck. It was a long year. I spent it mostly in India and Nepal. I meditated in different temples. I explored another dimensions of tiebetan Buddhism and Hinduism. I hiked the Himalaya for second time. I spent time in different forests. I went to festivals. I danced. I wrote less than I should. I stopped smoking after 9 years of rolling cigarettes. I stopped alcohol after being alcoholic for years. The nightmares I used to have for years stopped. I'm not depressed anymore. I learned poi. I started reading tarot. I reconnected with old friends. I met new friends.
Today, we end this year, this decade. It was a year full of realizations. I came back to Lebanon to be here in the streets (against the regime) and in the mountains.
What happened in 2019 is just a trailer of 2020. Looking forward.
For Tonight, we dance until we collapse.
The more you go up, mountains will be visible. After four days of walking, we started to see the tip of the mountains and that's where the reward starts.
Forests are mystical gates to other dimensions of our existence.
There, in the middle of forest, we stand and breathe. We let go and learn. We go deeper in the universe within. We face what we were trying to avoid. We meet our fears. We listen to the old wisdom. We unlearn our old patterns.
Walking in mountains is another form of growing and letting go.
It is an adventure of exploring what the body can do and how it can adjust to different challenges.
It is an adventure for the senses and the mind as well.
Everyday, we were walking for few hours.
we were a step closer to the mountains.

It is a blessing to see the mountains, to walk there and be surrounded by its greatness.
When you go up the mountains, you'll be tired, you'll feel new muscles in your body, you'll feel pain in joints, you'll feel a different kind of exhaustion.
When you get up there, all the pain and exhaustion will transform into a deep breath, into a relief. The pain will transform into a reward, into a different perspective.
When you're up there, the mountains will take away whatever heaviness you have within you, you become lighter. It is a process of cleansing and transformation.
You are not the same when you leave the mountains. It changes you forever.

Again in Himalaya.
This time we, me and @saghbiny and @royb_art , went up to Annapurna Base Camp (4200 meters). We were going slow. In total, we walked 150 km in 14 days.
In the coming days, I'll be sharing some photos from this long trip.

Rishikesh: a combination of celebration, chanting, colors and Gods all over the place.
I've been visiting India since 2013, and this is my first time in this place. It is like a small adventure to explore the other dimensions of Gods and goddesses.

Familiar faces. Rain. Wind. Clouds. Lake. Fire. Great music.
Dancing under the rain with 3 Celsius temperature is something that I experienced for the first time in my life.
Ahoora festival was a rich experience on many levels. 🏴☠️🔱 Long time ago, I heard about Sevan lake. Now, I know how it looks like.

- No. I've been to burj hammoud before.
The only things that's left by communism are the old buildings and the flea market.
