Running through the wilderness, the side of the moon right over head and fire deep within, we reached a dream land called Spana Ranch. Some people speak with action, they don’t demand nor do they control, they simply act and in slow mindful ways they change the world. Such is the master of this land.
At an age when people decide to retire and wait for the next to take over, this man challenges the show, he dreams to train a generation of kids who neither hurt self nor others: with great passion in act, with no desire to be recognised, he practices his words and simple living- he shadows.
From an experience into banana farm and chocolate laddo, we went through the celebration- each day was warm and each evening a new surprise.
Bamboo plantation, solar dryer, listening to unknown stories and observing the planets… we had bonfire and we had pizza parties, we had independence and underneath many stories evolved. Kabir in mornings and reflections all around, each one had the freedom to be and accepted for not the rules but for the beauty underneath.
Our wishes were always fulfilled from “a mother with all care” to a “sadhu without a language” we shared, we cared and we grew beyond awareness in so many little conversations which were held. The kids curiosity he fulfilled like a non harmful being, he guides the silent path. Many hands touched the untold stories. I came to you without a plan yet this journey starts and sustains in the beauty of your words…
“Let the inner guide shine your path and your actions- let nature define”
