It’s mid-morning, I’m sitting in a noisy café inside Genova train station. Not the usual time and place for my daily practice.
I tried to write earlier. I woke up at 6 am, walked to the deck of the boat. The sun was already out, a sign that we definitely sailed east and Italy is close.
I did some stretching, and then a sat there a few minutes in silence. Just the morning breeze guiding my meditation. That statement appeared in my mind.

“The most spiritual thing now is action.”

When I opened my eyes, ready to immerse into my writing practice, I found out I was alone — nobody on sight in the whole deck.
Then a voice came out from the speakers, I understood. It was almost time to leave the ferry. I had to rush to the cabin and pack up everything.
My writing had to wait.

It took a good deal of time to get off the ferry and commute to the train station. Plus, hunger came.
So, here I am.
Writing in an unusual time and space. With Lorena and Felix protecting my space, and some music to bring me back into my intuition.

And that statement came out again.
Even stronger.

“The most spiritual thing now is action.”

Surveys show that in this harsh, divisive, conflictual and challenging world, more and more people embrace spirituality. They are seeking the answers that logic struggles to provide. But the risk is to mistake spirituality as a way out from a reality we don’t like. Instead, it should be a journey into the world. And into ourselves.
I remember talking with a farmer a while ago during a workshop. We were going to lunch. He’s there taking care of his plants. We talked, he shared with us a few of his story and his love for nature. His hands, the way they touch the leaves, the way they dig into the soil, that was spiritual.
