Nepal is a wonderfully beautiful and spiritual country. Every time you look around, the beauty is so varied and overwhelming. The people of the countryside live so simply, with such joy. While they may not have the options we take for granted, they share a much greater portion of themselves with their divine presence and joy of being is clearly a large part of their lives. May I use their example to enrich my appreciation.
Although I walk through the Valley of the Shadow of Death,
I fear no evil.
A rod and staff comfort me.
I’m led to green pastures,
allowed to lay down beside still waters.
A place is made for me among my enemies.
Surely, goodness and mercy shall follow me
for all of the days of my life
