this is a true story from my life, and one that has become an inspiration to me in my own life.
when i first started travelling around, without much direction except to explore, and with very little money i did not trust the universe as i do today.
i had grown accustomed to having nice clean bed, warm showers, expensive organic food, and lots of shiny things.
the reality of my dirt and lack of money had really set in by the the end of month of doing this.
i was camping out in the firest with some friends i had just met.
only none of us had gear, food, or water. i had a backpack filled with things i would never use and things i would discard before too long.
but not gear or food or water, the only things you really need.
This ad goes away when you register.
and we were hiking out after spending the night in the trees.maybe some body thought we could get a shower somewhere, so that was where we were off too at that moment.
it was as we were hiking that i began to get really freaked out, no water, how was i gonna live? no money, and how all those people who told me that i couldnt do what i was doing were right. i felt utterly doomed.
and had no choice but to hike, and keep hiking. i was getting frantically upset, i actually started crying as i was walking.
that moment, which can be difficult on any long hike, is the worst point. you feel that you absolutely cannot go on, yet there is no other choice.
endurance and will power were the only thing pulling me along.
then just when things seemed completely horrible, and i was crying for real thinking how stupid i had been to even begin such a journey as i was on, no food no water, hot sun and only walking.
there appeared in the middle of the forest, in the middle of the trail right in front of me an enormous watermelon!!!
now this is a simple miracle.
probably because the hiking was pretty intense, and the previous carriers of the watermelon had probably been having a moment like me, thinking i just couldnt go any futher with the huge weight of my pack. and so left the watermelon there for me to find.
course i had a knife, and so we happily feasted on the watermelon, it was not anything i could have ever thought of yet it was the perfect thing
