(going towards the lake almost crying)
Sam: do you want to talk?
Sam: Let's go over there and talk.
Samridhi: Okay. (Half sobbing)
Sam: What happened? Why are you crying?
Samridhi: I don't know. I just want to talk to somebody and there is this constant feeling that there is nobody to talk to , to be with, to have a walk or just sitting in silently.
Sam: Why do you always forget me?
Samridhi: I just thought other people's presence will make it better than yours.
Sam: No, that's not going to happen. Nobody is gonna come to you until you tell them you have a problem and even if you did, they have their own lives as well. So, the only person who can save you is YOU. Always remember YOU.
Samridhi: I am sorry , I always forget you. I promise next time I have something in my mind, I will first look for YOU and then someone else :)
Do you do this as well? Talking to yourself? It's great as a therapy. Lately, I have been feeling Nobody can guide me or mentor me better than me. It's only ME you is going to tell what's right and wrong. So I constantly look for my inner wisdom and inner self for answers and weirdly, I am getting my answers as well :)
I’m trying to do a most very difficult thing—change. I grew a beard to change the bottom half of my face; I grew my hair to change the top. I bought a new cologne: bergamot orange scent. I hung up my suit, tie and slacks. Bought jeans, boots, shirts with patterns, shirts with Mao collars, colored T-shirts, socks with printed pineapples and even a khaki tactical vest full of pockets—I’m now on the spectrum between business casual and plain old casual. Clothes, however, do not actually make the man. To paraphrase Thoreau: these changes are but a thousand hackings at leaves instead of a single striking at the root.
Stephen Covey suggests, “We see the world, not as it is, but as we are──or, as we are conditioned to see it.” Therefore, life experience conditions who I am, like decades of wind and rain shape rock. If suddenly—without warning—BOOM—a bomb goes off just now just right over there I would react instinctively by either running or hiding or crying or freezing or helping. I don’t know which. I can pretend to know what I would do. But in the end, I would do whatever…I…would do, according to how my character has been conditioned. If I want to see a different world; I’ll need to see a different me.
But change occurring only from the influence of external conditions is passive and lacks self-determination. I don’t want to be shaped by unintentional forces of wind and rain, but by Rodin’s chisel, purposefully sculpting and hewing according to a vision of what lay within the rock. So, I start with a vision of the man I want to be. Like an actor, I imagine this man’s motivations and values and when confronted with a choice ask: what would this man do?—then do it. When I become distracted and begin to stay, these values grasp hold and pull me back inside the temple of my future self.

A wonderful panorama viewing from the highest place made a good feeling and refreshing, the result for who has climbed there. Awesome place with an imposing presence and importance to the region. The Monastery itself is beautiful, full of gold and gold painted architecture, beautiful embroideries, and is alive with the activities of the monks.We found it very good to see fresh depictions rather than the faded versions one often sees in temples. There're several large halls and marvelous statues, and all the best part are within the 3 inner halls of the monasteries. There are, if you explore, a number of significant halls off to the side and behind the main buildings where one can meditate in quiet. Follow our local guide that will explain the significance of this monastery and the stories on the wall, we were be enthralled, be respectful.🏯🏯🏯
Tips: Photography is prohibited within the inner halls. But there're the beauty and grandness are, worth it!

Our first morning in Shangri-La, we had a Tibetan breakfast. Before going to Shangri-La, we took the Rhodiola capsules in the first three days in Dali to prevent altitude sickness. I took a breath of pure oxygen before going to bed last night and I feel better now. I think I have adapted to the plateau climate.
