The moment the noise stopped

The Tuktuk stopped at the railroad crossing. Boom down, lights flashing. In India, everyone honks their horn. ALL THE TIME.
Except for right now.
The eminently passing train instilling an unusual sense of patience in every driver. The sudden break from constant noise was deafening. Eerie.

As I peered into the taxi parked to our left a young boy’s piercing eyes catch my attention. An afternoon run of kids just finished school.

For many Indians, a white face is a novelty, especially in the backstreets outside of Varanasi. I lift my camera to the children asking if I can take a photo. The excitement was a unanimous “yes”. It always is with kids in India.

I lift my camera to my eye and suddenly the noise erupts again and our Tuktuk jolts forward. A young girl bursts out laughing as I take the photo. The boom wasn’t even completely raised as the noise and flow of energy edged forward and over the level crossing. The school-run taxi turned left and we carried on straight into the chaos of the Indian afternoon traffic.

Content that I've enjoyed this week.

I watched "The Secret" a documentary about The Law of Attraction about five years ago. I was sceptical at first about manifestation but after some amazing results in my life, I got really excited about manifestation. It's now one of the major projects that I'm focusing on through Live More Perfect Days.

This week I watched the updated and newly produced "The Secret Dare to Dream". It's easier to consume than the original documentary and watches like a feature film. Super sweet, easy to watch and is a great entry point to Law of Attraction for children.

It's available in a few places including Amazon.
