A month ago, my friends and my boyfriend visited Ciudad del Refugio Orphanage in Rosarito, Mexico.
Mind-blowing mental and physical experience. We brought the kids food and pastries and they were so happy and content with 1/4 of a pastry. The staff was very welcoming and grateful, but the kids were so STOKED, especially the younger ones. The older ones were a bit bitter because they see people coming and going without attachment. Now, the younger 3-7 years old children were full of illusion and hope. We went to the playground and played soccer with them. They were so competitive and athletic! At the end of the game we were exhausted.
Visiting this orphanage not only gave me sense of community, but opened my eyes to see others in need and how fortunate we are. Sometimes we loose a sense of reality when we let our minds go on ego-trips of wanting, competing, envy, lust, among all the other ego-centric needs. In reality we are all one in this life to help and be kind to one another, cause in life’s madness, all the money in the world can’t buy happiness. Might as well share you wealth with others and life in harmony.
Whenever, one is consumed in pity and sadness just think to one-self how can you improve yourself by improving others. Trust me it works and helps you connect with others. #Bethechange #Youarecapable
