I Meditated on a Crater
Buried in the mountains of Ecuador is a small village called Quilatoa whose only inhabitants are indigenous tribes. My sole purpose of going is to see a magnificent, turquoise lake in a crater adjacent to the town.
Nothing prepares you for the breathtaking view of something so magnificent words cannot describe it.
At the highest peak “el pico mas alto,” Monte Juyende, I find myself in complete tranquility. As I sit on the ground breathing heavily from finishing an hour long hike, an immense yearning to meditate overcomes me.
I close my eyes and listed to my heart beat.
I listen to the wind singing its song and the dogs howling as I slow my breath down.
I am the only one here.
I am fully present to the world around me.
Nothing else exists.
When I open my eyes, the only thing I see is the turquoise waters below.
