The Kumbh Mela is the largest spiritual gathering where millions of seekers and Hindus congregate together to pursue moksha (liberation) from the wheel of samsara, the repeating cycle of birth, life and death. Hindus gather from all over India and around the world to participate and celebrate in this massive pilgrimage of faith by bathing in the sacred rivers to be cleansed of all sins and karmas from many lifetimes.
Everyone is seeking, even if we are unaware of it.
Every day we are seeking. Seeking is a fire of the soul—the un-dying ember in our heart that keeps us alive.
I have always been a seeker, even when I did not know that I was or what it was called.
My whole life I have been searching for something more—something bigger that what I was experiencing.
I was seeking for meaning, fulfillment and the purpose of my existence.

When the spiritual two-by-four hits us over the head, it’s time to wake up.
It’s a Divine wake up call for us to transform and heal our life.
Spiritual awakening never comes at a convenient time in life. It always comes at the most inconvenient and most inappropriate time. Life does not wait for us when she wants to wake us up. When she hits us over the head we have no choice but to wake up. Sometimes we get blind sided and don’t know what hit us, but this is the only way she can get our attention. Something drastic has to happen.
Everyone has a drama queen in their life in one way or another. Either we can get caught up in the chaos and let them influence us or we eliminate them completely from our life.
A fool always—
1. Takes leaps into the unknown with full trust that things will always work out no matter what.
2. They are always up for a challenge or new adventure.
3. They are spontaneous and full of life.
