You wake up in a beautiful hotel room over looking the ocean on the island of Fiji. The air temperature is perfect, your favorite person is by your side, the food is wonderful, the scenery is breathtaking. However, you have amnesia and don’t remember you are on vacation. You remember nothing about your home, your big extended family, or that you paid for this trip to Fiji. One day someone tells you that your trip will be ending soon and you have to go home.
You panic, you are filled with fear. There is no wifi where you are staying, no internet, no phones and no television. The people around you are telling you that you are on vacation and this trip was only temporary. You have no iphone with pictures from your past to refer to. They seem like they are telling the truth but you have no proof that what they are saying is true. You do everything to not think about the end of the trip, you avoid it at all costs and then one day, it is TIME TO LEAVE. Fear is the only thing present.
The day comes for you to get on the airplane. You panic, really believing that nothing good can come from this. It is a very short trip, like the blink of an eye and you are surrounded by hundreds of loving people. You look around at the faces and remember everybody! You are flooded with feelings of happiness as you look around. You see mountains and valleys, deserts and oceans, canyons and rivers. You are HOME and happy to snuggle into your own bed and have all your favorite things around you.
You wonder why you could have been so afraid of coming to this place?
