My curiosity was peaked however I had limited communication and didn't want to run around attempting to find a better signal. So I waited until we were back on the road to check the news.
The mix and intensity of the emotions that surged up when I saw the news about the earthquake is too difficult to put into words. Even now I am still not quite sure what I am feeling as I wait to hear from friends, as I wait to find out about travel plans basically as I wait for some sort of information.
I know that the monks at the monastery are safe, they are sleeping outside and here is a photo of them saying their prayers. I also know it will be okay, I know that it has been heart warming to watch people come together to help. I have been shocked by how many people have called or messaged me to find out about the monastery.
The past couple of days when I find myself in Nepal, I feel ease. I have always felt so peaceful there and even though the people are hurting and scared I still feel that peace. The love and peace still exist in the storm that is going on right now.
I encourage you as the media posts photos of the "disaster." To look for the people lending a helping hand, the people that are happy to be there, to be lending a hand. Creation and destruction are a cycle, where is your focus right now?
