First stop: Khao San Road… backpacker’s gateway to Asia!
Lots of people, sounds, visual impressions, odours… spices, garbage, air pollution…
Four days later: Koh Phangan, the Full-moon- Party!
Ten thousand people drunk, stoned, trippin, in ecstasy… sounds good!
No, no… people are so fucked up! Passing out, fights, accidents, rapes… and every time someone gets killed… welcome to the biggest beach party in the world! It’s almost anarchy… almost!
But apart from that it’s real fun 😉
Chill out… finally!
Cat Island: good people, good vibes… peace… backpacker’s paradise!
Suddenly, space and time obey different rules!
No stress, no worries… everything’s fine!
I take a hit…
… everything’s fine?!?
Am I happy? Am I really happy with my life?
I should be! Chilling out on a tropical island after two years of pure stress… just at the beginning of possibly the best trip of my life and everything is possible… everything!
Maybe but maybe I’m simply a slave to my mind! A slave to my fears? My subconsciousness? My biography?
A slave to society’s expectations? My family’s expectations? My own expectations?
A slave to my cultures? My belief? My morals? My ideology? My ethnicity?
A slave to my addictions? To consumption? The retirement fund system? To Hollywood?
No, no… I’m not a slave! I just want to be!
It’s a good excuse!
Take another hit…
Going back to my bungalow… what will I find this time… a spider, a scorpion, a snake…
I’m a slave to my phobias!
Two weeks of paradise and then… Tantra-Yoga… four weeks to come… yoga meditation within the tantra system.
Some good people there, some strange people there…
I still cannot get in sync! Strange feelings and thoughts… I still haven’t arrived in Thailand yet…
A week passes by! A powerful healer arrives. One of the most powerful type! A healer who’s mere presence has healing effects…
