You might have noticed a slow-down in our posting rhythm, this past week. We have a good excuse: we have been to Italy on holiday with our Camper van, given that the kids had the annual autumn school break.
While there, we tried to largely enjoy and do our own explorations.
Even when we did try to pull a card to post, we pulled the one you see in the photo: “Balance Career and Home Life” (from the Ascended Masters Oracle cards by Doreen Virtue). This made us laugh, as it essentially reminded us to not kill ourselves with work, especially while on holiday. The Universe has a sense of humor!
The card was drawn and the picture taken in the city of Assisi (St.Francis‘s natal town).
On this account, while this is a beautiful city, you have to realize that these days, in Italy, in front of famous cathedrals and monuments, you will find the Italian army patrolling the place. Too bad that Assisi is dubbed the ‘city of peace’, because it doesn’t feel like that any longer.
First, I generally don’t like being around guns.
Second, when you visit a busy touristic place and have to pay a ticket to then continuously trip over tourists with audio-guides, you lose all of the spiritual vibes and atmosphere such place might originally have had, and such place turns all ‘mental’.
I have not found God in those churches. St. Francis used to find him in Nature too, as he was talking to animals.
For these reasons, our explorations tend to involve visiting lesser known, not hyper-commercialized ‘famous’ sites, to spend more time outdoor, and we like to discover the less known small chapels and churches and alleys and walk the less beaten paths. In the photos we take you might have noticed we try to find sincere and spontaneous spiritual inspirations, like this Mary with a Rasta Rosary from a previous post that we saw this summer at the corner of a road.
