Day 48: Make Progress

“Each of my races here are beautiful in there own way.  If you look at my first race it was very hard for me.  Perhaps even harder than this one.  But if we speak just about this race I had many more things happen to me.”

“I can’t remember all the things ….It started with blisters. I had trouble with my sciatic nerve, and other problems because of that.  Now I am having some trouble with my tooth.  Such kind of things.”

“I think we have these difficulties because it forces us to go deeper inside and find joy to make progress,  and do this not just for ourselves but for all of humanity.”

Vasu says he tries not to think too much about the finish which is now just 170 miles away.  But he is doing everything he can to get there as quickly as possible.

“I am trying now to offer more gratitude for this race  and for everything that has happened.  Also I am happy about the finish which is not only my achievement.  It is the achievement of my spiritual teacher and everybody who has been part of this race.  Without everyone this finish would not be possible.”
