where heaven and mountains meet the himalayas

I have visited the Himalayas several times and every time I was moved by its greatness, beauty and force of nature. But also the different cultures who live in these gigantic mountains. This is where beauty and the sublime mix with the mystical and magical.

During one of my trekking through the Himalayas I wrote these words in my diary: living in extremes of the day, every day, icy shadows, in which everything freezes, no movement possible, nature is quiet, blistering sunrays appear from behind the mountains, the day starts, slowly some movement, step by step, we climb and climb higher into the Himalayas, ever farther and steeper, no view on a view, then totally unexpected beauty looms at us, a gigantic mystical plateau, we become one with everything around us, as if we got lifted into heaven, this enormous beautiful nature.
Somehow when I trek through the Himalayas I feel connected and suddenly I fit in, the correct proportions, we are tiny and small in this universe. This is where the real power lies.
