I don't understand the sacred rituals I see in Asia or around the world, but just the fact that we humans find ways and the time to pray, show respect, honor, love, bless, sanctify and make or see something as holy, moves something in my heart.
"The lamps are different, but the light is the same" - Rumi
In 7 years of non-stop world travel, we've seen this and so much more, and still... from the most simple to the most elaborate.... people worshipping gives me greater faith in humanity. Despite world leaders sometimes manipulating people to wars and atrocities that happen in the name of religion, I see our inner calling for a higher purpose and connection a positive thing and the fact that almost all of it has a core belief about loving and peace.
In this holy season,( and always) I am praying for and visualizing more peace, love, and acceptance for all of us sharing this sweet planet. Hoping my tiny contribuion of travel photos and positive focus can help me and all of us keep our eyes more on the beauty and good every where.
