As I am writing this blog, my legs are killing me. Yesterday I walked 11 kilometers along the beach, and today I decided to walk to the city center of Torremolinos. Since I arrived in Spain, I walked a lot. I always like to take walks to clear my mind, but the walks are even better when I’m in different environment. I don’t know why. It just helps me with clearing my mind, looking inward, and figuring things out. I have a lot to think about lately, more than enough for 11 kilometer walks. I take a walk every morning and evening. Even though it is not my intention to make mental health walks out of them, they are slowly becoming something like that. Of course it also helps that the views are amazing, and my condition gets better every day.

Change is the only constant in life. Acknowledge and embrace that fact, and your mind will probably be much calmer. You experience the changes in the world, because there is a part of you that never changes. When you know what that part is, you will know who you really are. This is what I’ve read in the book Find Your Inner Strength by Swami Purnachaitanya. It’s a book about how meditation may help you in this ever-changing world. The above part is from the first chapter, and it already kinda opened my eyes to some things. All these things we learned from the societies point of view, that we deem important, won’t be immune for change. So why do we value those things so much? All these events that have been happening in the world, from pandemics to climate change to even war, showed us that in the end a lot of things don’t matter a lot. Would it be an idea to question if we are going the right way with the economic and technological progression? Should we start looking inward more?
