Day 5 Medellin

Holding on to beliefs limits our experiences in life. That doesn't mean that beliefs or ideas or thinking is a problem: the stubborn attitude of having to have things be a particular way, grasping on to our beliefs and thoughts, all cause these problems.
To put it simply, using your belief system this way, creates a situation in which you choose to be blind instead of being able to see, to be deaf instead of being able to hear, to be dead rather than being alive, asleep rather than awake Pema Chodron

Medellin has a history, it is not a very rosy history, one of violence and strife. Today the city is growing, it is becoming peaceful, it is thriving and bustling. This took risk and a huge change of belief. It did not happen overnight but the point is that it happened and now is a testimony of changing belief systems, taking risks and loving their city so much to stand up and be counted
It is a very inspiring place for me, I am extremely excited at their prospects of all the awesome work that they are doing at all levels because it really takes a village. Everyone has taken their responsibility very seriously,
Being willing and ready is the start, what a great lesson for me
