Bringing back home the holiday’s spirit

07/19/15

When we are on vacation everything seems different and more organic. There is joy, lightness and excitement. Desires spur once more, we are naturally more participative and a constant smile lightens our face. What happens when we are on holidays that enables us to be so relaxed and at ease? Can it be transplanted in our every day lives once we are back home?

Well, the answer is yes. On holidays we let go of ourselves, our thoughts, our self constructed reality and loosen up our muscles. Our egos and inner chit chat seem to become less present and we stop momentarily resisting reality and fighting with ourselves. In a word, we just relax in the present moment and have a break of ourselves.

Back home we put up our armour of resistance, duality, thoughts, creation of a self constructed reality, life in the past and future. We simply forget to live in the present moment, the only moment we know we can experience as life.

By observing and keeping a log of our reactions when on holidays as well as when we are back home, we will realise that it is not the place that makes us relax and be happy. It is how much present we are in this moment.
