What can India teach you? Here you have a few reasons why to come to India…
Do you have this picture of India as a poor, overpopulated and dirty country? Are you thinking
why to come to India, aren’t you? What can bring such a journey to you? Well, I will share
with you few reasons why I think India is a place that can really make you grow a lot. The
only condition is to come with your mind open to any kind of transformation.
First challenge: Have no expectations and no plans
It might seem like an easy thing to do but actually, it’s something we in the west are really not
used to. If you come to India with a plan, it’s almost sure, it won’t work out. Then you can
choose to be disappointed and angry with India. Or you may also choose to let India
surprises you. Sometimes we may allow ourselves just discover the magic of the places we
don’t know or we initially didn’t want to see. Let things flow and uncover the beauty of
spontaneous life path.
Second challenge: Go with the flow
According to my experience, I started to question myself and the world: why we should try to
understand India? Let’s just embrace it, accept it as it is and go with the flow here. The
answer: “it’s India”, is many cases the best answer for things you don’t comprehend.
Third challenge: Go out of your comfort zone
Why should we give up our comfortable life for a while? Why go beyond our comfort zone?
The benefit is obvious, you can discover your genuine self. You may experience yourself in
a different mindset, thinking diversely, acting spontaneously or feeling more intensely. To
cross the line of comfort zone means to expand and to uncover hidden part of yourself. When
you feel you are ready to open yourself for such a shift, you will know it and India will call
You will be inspired
You will definitely be amazed by Indian culture. The kindness of local people is limitless.
Because they believe in karma, they help you asking nothing for it with an astonishing smile
on their face. Such happiness from a good action is incredible.
At least for me, this is really inspiring. The way Indian people accept the present moment,
they don’t judge anyone, living their dharma (life purpose) without question why this and that happened to them. Our western mindset of questioning all the time: Why me? Why did this happen
? Why this didn’t happen? This is our resistance. The universe has a plan for each of
us, Indian people know that. We from western country could take a lesson from it. Trust that
there is a reason for everything and accept that it’s not always necessary to understand
everything all the time.
