Hiking is like meditation.
Especially on a strenuous hike and in high altitude, you have to be mindful of every step (or else you may slip and fall) and conscious of every breath (because the air is so thin and oxygen is sparse).
You don't necessarily have to sit down to meditate. A definition of meditation can be "to focus one's mind for a period of time and to give your attention to only one thing."
Anything can be a form of meditation, including weight lifting 🏋 . You have to be fully aware of your flow of energy and movement. And you have to clear your mind and have complete focus on every rep (especially with heavy weights). It's all about mindfulness. :::
Every day I try to meditate and live intentionally by being conscious, present, and always in the moment.
In this 📷: I am at the summit of the Salkantay Pass (15,200 ft elevation) overlooking beautiful Salkantay Lake and the Peruvian Andes. I was definitely present in the moment and aware of my flow of energy. My heart was racing, due to a combination of the adrenaline rush, excitement of the moment, and high altitude 😀.

Saya jatuh cinta dengan aktivitas traveling sejak 5 tahun lalu, tepatnya dipenghujung akhir tahun 2012 lalu. Berawal dari teman dekat yang sering ajak saya untuk traveling. Dari situ saya mulai banyak melakukan aktivitas yang mengharuskan saya berada dibawah terik sinar matahari, membuat saya jatuh cinta juga dengan kegiatan-kegiatan outdoor yang kadang sebenarnya untuk seorang wanita termasuk berat, contohnya ya hiking ini. Semakin sering saya melakukan-nya semakin banyak tempat-tempat indah lain-nya yang ingin saya kunjungi. Booking tiket pesawat kadang udah kaya booking tiket bioskop, bisa beruntun hehe.
Tahun 2017 ini daftar destinasi saya memang kebanyakan negara tetangga. Destinasi di Indonesia yang saya kunjungi tahun ini hanya 2 malahan. Foto ini diambil saat saya berhasil menapak-kan kaki di Puncak gunung Merapi. Saat mulai hiking saja pemandangan yang disuguhkan disini sudah bagus banget, semakin ke atas semakin menjadi-jadi bagusnya. Disitu saya merasa rindu dan kangen untuk explore pulau-pulau di Indonesia yang memang selalu menyuguhkan pemandangan alam yang indah, suatu "rasa" yang gak saya dapatkan ketika saya mengunjungi negara orang.
Ahhhh, Indonesia! You're too damn good to put into words ❤
As promised - we're diving right in. This post is inspired by having had cancer and the two masses that have shown up underneath both of my arms. My wish is for you to receive this message with hope, love and understanding.❤ Sanctuary || I find it on the mountain and being witness to her stillness. She's in peace and without worry. It's a reminder that powerlessness comes from grasping at a future that we simply cannot hold. So, I'll ask you... do futuristic ideals truly exist?
What if I told you that time has no bearing - What if I asked you to play with the idea that "past, present and future" are all encompassed in the same moment and at any given time we're in full experience of all three. We're told to live inside of presence on a continual basis, and perhaps how we move into that space isn't through action but through the acknowledgement that it isn't something we're distanced from - it's simply something we've forgotten.
I've been reawakened to that experience this summer: Breathing life into connections by freeing ourselves from outcome is a powerful expression of freedom and living outside the confines of time. My health continually reminds me to surrender myself to passionate moments of play and love because they're really all we have and there's such beauty in that. It leaves us limitless in love, allows our movement to be made through non-duality existence and leaves us with an acceptance of our very circumstance.
I'm going to be sharing myself with you over the next few months || a re-introduction. Healing is found inside of our stories and it extends beyond ourselves. Perhaps it's our ultimate act of love and commitment to one another - not a ring or an "I do" but the willingness to give our light no matter the circumstance, leaving people with our compassion - not our projections.🙏 #traveling#traveler#travelingram#traveltheworld#beautiful#mountains#mountaineering#camping#yogi#love#perfect#nature#naturelovers#naturehippys#mothernature#inspiredyogis#yoga#yogalove#wildernessculture#explorebc#exploreeverything#yogachallenge#free#freedom#discover#explore#neverstopexploring#gypsy#yogaeverydamnday#wanderlust
#tbt to Alaska and Denali's west buttress circa 1998 my first trip and definitely was not my last. Alaska has a special place in my heart. Like the girlfriend that plays hard to get I've been chasing her for years and will continue until she gives up (not likely) or I fade into the proverbial alpinist sunset. #throwbackthursday
