Bad habits? Don’t give up!

I had this post almost ready two days ago but one event changed my perspective of how I looked at this topic. So I decided reframe this post. My Inspiration to write this post comes from the fact that many of my close friends are struggling and going back to their old bad habits, which they have quit, sometimes even years ago. Some of them actually went back to those habits.
The event which changed my perspective and gave final shape to this blog was giving a lift to a drug addict and alcoholic person. He came to me at the petrol station and asked if I could take him somewhere. As I’ve travelled by hitchhiking by myself, I try never to decline someone asking for a lift. This time I had many doubts but somehow I agreed to give him a short lift to the edge of the town. He was a young man. He looked very poor and dishevelled. Dirty clothes, plastic bag in his hand.

I parked tonight at the spot marked as line of the Tropic, exactly the same place as six days ago when I was going to explore the south part of the Northern Territory of Australia with Alice Springs and Uluru. This night which I spent here, six days ago was special – first,  it was a very cold night, coldest since my stay in South New Zealand. From 30 degrees during the day the temperature dropped to 5-6 degrees during the night. Warm clothes and blanket saved me this time. Other special thing was that I had many dreams that night. I have a feeling that I was sleeping and resting, but dreaming all night.

Makara – Capricorn

The first month of my Svathisthana tapas. I spend mostly on the beaches traveling between Sydney and Cairns. I must say I’m impressed with their beauty. I really love Sydney where the big city is meeting a beautiful sunny beach and somehow those two world are existing interspersing each other. For sure it is a place where I can live and enjoy the lifestyle. I also enjoyed the beauty and ease of Newcastle, vibrant energy of Byron Bay, magic of Whiteheaven Beach, length of the Gold Coast and elegant charm on Noosa. Besides the beach I camped mostly at the campgrounds next to rivers and visiting numerous waterfalls.
