Looking back at this picture today and this tall pyramid, which is called the ‘Temple of Kukulcan’, all I could see is how tiny we humans are and how our lives revolve around these other tiny lives while there exists a gigantic universe out there beyond our comprehension. There was a time when these other tiny people called the Mayans built this entire ancient city of Chichén Itzá.
At times, we live in such bubbles that we tend to forget how we are all a part of a greater purpose and there is so much meaning to each of our lives. While I stood besides this structure, it inspired me to give back to the world something powerful enough that would withstand all storms and generations. These pyramids are the some of the oldest standing man-made structures built by the Mayans. It evokes the thought in me that if those tiny people could do it, we too, carry all the strength and power we’ll ever need within us to change the world.
It also reminds me that you have the strength and power to create things larger than yourself and all you need is to expand your thinking beyond trivial things and broaden your horizons. To think beyond your bubble and start thinking about this world and how you could make it a better place. When you start building towards something meaningful in life, brick by brick, step by step, there will be a day when you will look back and simply marvel at the beautiful world you’ve created. ✨
PS: If you ever do get to visit Chichén Itzá, definitely hire a tour guide because this place is filled with so much history and interesting facts that merely taking pictures with the pyramid won’t do any justice to it!
