After a long period in Auroville I am off travelling again. I have been here for more than 3 month and I cannot really explain my feelings for this beautiful place and all that happened. A month full of changes, growth and magic. Driving my bike through town felt like everyday life; I found wonderful friends who are now part of my little Auroville family; I feel safe here, safe because I feel held/cared for? and accepted. I found a piece of home here!
But leaving is not very difficult because I know, I will return.
I planned everything so well to be back in India just for Diwali, the celebration of lights, where every little city is lit up by candles and lamps. My flight was booked to Chennai in order to go back to Auroville and prepare everything for my longer stay there, after in December. Some days after booking my flight my friend called me and announced that Diwali is celebrated in the south one day before. That meant I missed out on this celebration just for one day… I was very disappointed at first, but after a while I accepted it and I thought it should be like this, with Diwali maybe meant for another time 😉
