Si vas a intentarlo, ve hasta el final,
de lo contrario no empieces siquiera.
Tal vez suponga perder novias, esposas, familia, trabajo y quizás la cabeza.
Tal vez suponga no comer en 3 o 4 días.
Tal vez suponga helarte en el banco de un parque,
tal vez suponga la cárcel, tal vez suponga humillación,
tal vez suponga desdén, aislamiento ...
el aislamiento es el premio.
Todo lo demás es para poner a prueba tu resistencia,
tus auténticas ganas de hacerlo,
y lo haras,
a pesar del rechazo y de las mínimas probabilidades.
Y será mejor que cualquier cosa que pudieras imaginar.
Si vas a intentarlo ve hasta el final, no existe una sensación igual,
estarás solo con los dioses y las noches arderan en llamas.
Llevarás las riendas de la vida, hasta la risa perfecta,
es por lo único que vale la pena luchar.

The hippie world in the sixties and seventies found in Goa a great place to stay: calm, nice and not yet exploited. The rock evolved into a special electronic music known by the name of Goa Music. Nowadays, more tourists than hippies, the music is a mix between pop and electro. By the way... Russian people have invaded this area!! In the photos, Anjuna beach:

Two special particularities make this mission different:
- The milk cooperative: idea conceived in order to provide the villagers with one extra income. A lot of buffaloes were distributed many years ago and the families care of them and collect the milk together. Mandal milk is going everywhere around south Gujarat everyday... big success!!
- The women organization: working for the woman's rights and helping the families with micro-financing formation and support (it works like a small bank for them). Nowadays, this organization counts with 2700 members, and increasing.
In one village, women wanted to run a cooperative by themselves...
... but men did not allow them.
So, a meeting with the people was indispensable...
... and almost 6 hours later, men accepted the idea and understood the greatness of such a project!!
There was also time for deep conversations about mind and life and for trying some experiences... in the photo I'm trying to ask questions to my subconscious about myself and about my future., jajajaja!! It is as funny as interesting. There are so many things that we do not know about our mind...
Believer or not in the power of your own mind, I would recommend you to take a look to the first 20 minutes of the movie The Secret, talking about The Secret of Attraction. Ah! Forget the part in which it talks about money, I don't like it. You can find the movie in every language. Here you can find the link to those first 20 minutes in English. It is worth watching it!

As any other Adivasis, Dangi children spend their childhood in hills and fields, helping their parents in the best of the cases.
The mission and the children...
Children taking bath...
Time for lunch...

As usual, let me show you some pictures... they may transmit my feelings better than my words.
“Real generosity toward the future consists in giving all to what is present”
“The best time to plant a tree was forty years ago. The second best time is today. Don’t waste even one minute of your day”
“Never put off happiness for the sake of achievement. Never put off the things that are important for your well-being and satisfaction to a later time. Today is the day to live fully, not when you win the lottery or when you retire. Never put off living”
“Failure is not having the courage to try, nothing more and nothing less. The only thing standing between most people and their dreams is the fear of failure. Yet failure is essential to success in any endeavor. Failure tests us and allows us to grow. It offers us lesson and guides us along the path of enlightenment. Never fear failure.”
“The boundaries of your life are merely creations of the self”
“Courage allows you to run your own race. Courage allows you to do whatever you want to do because you know that it is right. Courage gives you the self-control to persist where others have failed. Ultimately, the degree of courage you live with determines the amount of fulfillment you receive. It allows you to truly realize all the exquisite wonders of the epic that is your life. And those who master themselves have an abundance of courage”
“When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds: your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction and you find yourself in a new, great and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive and you discover yourself to be a greater person than you ever dreamed yourself to be”
