Dear Friend!
In trekking, the only way is forward. You will find this as the only choice. Going back is as much work as moving forward. You as well move forward. If you are trekking the place for the first time or repeated number of times you will still find every step you take is towards unknown, unclear or different. You take the steps anyways. The distance you cover is your personal struggle and your personal achievement. You can learn from other’s instructions and strategies, but the method has to be your personalised one.
Only you can decide your strength and your pace. If you are getting back, from the same path you might surprise yourself how you covered the way/path/route. Thus, telling you that you yourself don’t know your strength.
Right support in the form of people, food, drink, directions, strong roots to hold on to, the wind, the sun keeps coming your way.
Each hurt only you endure. Each time you trip you pick yourself up. Each time you lose your way, you find a way to be found again. Each time you get scared, you decide to overcome it and carry on.
On the trek do ponder on whether you are moving forward without enjoying, looking around, admiring and connecting with nature? Why? Are you scared to finish last or losing your way and/or being left behind?
Would you rather have an idea about the path/journey/way or does the suspense of not knowing works for you?
How is your reaction to the people with you during the journey? Some of these people become friends and some you want nothing to do with after the journey.
When you prepare for the trek are you excited or not excited? What exactly are you excited or not excited about? Are you allowing the past experiences to cause resistance in your excitement and preparing for the upcoming trek?
There is an important life’s learning that you learn along the way of trekking. Way/path that seems/looks smooth may not be safe. They could be slippery and thus dangerous. Way/path that seems/looks rocky may not always be tough. It keeps you anchored and grounded, and creates a friction that does not let you slip.
Trekking journey gives you the opportunity to get over your inhibitions, resistance and un-fun beliefs about self and others.
Have you figured out what and why trekking is in your life? Was it because of the forward movement, to see new places, to eat new cuisines, for moving out of your comfort zone, to meet new people, to learn about fun. Is there sartorial reasons, you get to dress up, dress sporty, and/or you do what you have not done before.
During the trek are you in a hurry to reach the end? Are you more interested in knowing what lies beyond the finishing line?
Right after you finish your journey? How do you react? After a day, do you remember your hardships and the achievement? Do you not remember the journey when you reach the peak/end? Does approval and appreciation from others on your performance based on your journey satisfy you and give you happiness or do you question them? Do you celebrate ‘the finishing’ as a milestone?
A trek is exactly like your life.
The way you trek is the way you live your life.
You trek so that you can understand your attitude towards/in your life.
You trek to know what you need to change to have/receive the life you desire.
Notice what are you being guided to do next, that is yet another way to understand your life in the next phase of your life.
