Machu Picchu

One of the most profound experiences Ive ever had was after I had hiked to Machu Picchu. I was sitting by myself watching the fog lift over the big mountain that overlooks Macchu Picchu and I realized how small we all are, how each individual person is just a little fleck in the universe.

It was such a powerful moment realizing the vastness of the earth and the universe and the question that followed that realization was “What’s the point of this life? How could any one individual life make a difference when we’re all so small and this universe is so big?”

And then I immediately got an answer…

“The entire point of our existence is to live in such a way that makes every other little fleck of life a little easier, filled with little more love and a little more light.”

That was Feb 2nd, 2007.  This picture was from that moment.  Ive never believe it more than I do now and I am committed to spreading love and light to every person I ever meet….because, it’s truly why we’re all here.
