Some places exist outside of time.
In these places your intuitive voice rings out, clear and true. The borders of the 'I' momentarily dissolve, and you gain a glimpse of something ageless, something sublime- or simply a comfortable sense of belonging, and a reprieve from the perpetual motion of the mind.
Places where you are free to observe with new awareness, to just Be.
These places have a name: thin places, where 'the distance between heaven and earth collapses' and 'we’re able to catch glimpses of the divine', as Eric Weiner writes. It might be a mountain pasture, a coastal path, or a chair in the local library- they are there for you to discover and make your own.
This picture was taken at Lake Baule in Eastern Nepal, on a secluded plateau on the way to Makalu. Moving through the pastures and valleys with my three new Nepali friends, we had not come across another soul for three days. For me, this was the edge of the world, and at such a place you can look back and see what you have- and understand what it is worth.
