The last hour of walking I realized that I completely lost my sense of time and space I have in normal life. So far my journey lasted 7 days, I walked 200 km but it felt like I never lived differently. Routine of everyday physical effort and recent pain completely stopped wild thoughts and internal dramas and helped me to stop overanalyzing things. It’s been liberating because my mind had no more control and dominance over my emotional, physical and spiritual body. I attribute that to a feeling that there is something bigger than myself.

As I did vital steps towards cleaning up my mental landscape, it was time to reward myself with my own room and a private bathroom with a bath. This day there was no snoring from the bunk beds and waiting for a free shower. Believe me, this is a luxury that you can hardly imagine, so joy and gratitude over my decision cannot be described.


Thought: The objective of cleaning is not just to clean, but to feel happiness living within that environment.
