Exploration and re-enchantment of the world by Arita Baaijens

I just came back from the land of the Shamans, the Eveny part of Siberia. And I realized that the rational mind of the Westerner just cannot understand the world of good and bad spirits. And as a shaman told me, just don´t think. Let it be as it is. The rational mind and overthinking just doesn´t work here. Every journey one does, it kind of changes your perception of the meaning of life. Especially if you go to Siberia, which is unique in this sense. And Siberia isn´t for anybody. In today´s world of personal recognition before understanding, just watch the crap on National Geographic and Discovery Channel for example, I worry who will travel to this extreme end of our exciting globe. Silly things like Monster Trucks and such useless TV is making it´s way in, unfortunately. But, fortunately, also the others, the once who can make a difference to how we see this part of the world, are also heading there. Like my very good friend Arita Baaijens, who philosophies below and tells us about her new challenge of life.
