Family and friends, I NEED YOUR HELP! This is the first time I've ever asked for help like this in my ten years of being active on social media. And actually, this help isn't for me, but for the 45 beautiful children of Children of the Universe Orphanage in Kathmandu, Nepal whose home was nearly entirely destroyed by the recent earthquake. These 45 kids are now sleeping on the ground outside, some under makeshift tents, and have about a weeks supply of food. Temperatures are dropping, rain is increasing, and so are the number of snakes on the ground as monsoon season is approaching (and yes, some of those snakes are poisonous and their "beds" are very accessible). http://www.gofundme.com/EliGoesToNepal I have been seriously lacking on posts the last few days related to the Nepal relief efforts because I've been extremely busy and haven't had time to just sit down and focus my energy online. And I've been semi-freaking out about it, feeling like I'm not doing nearly enough for this desperate situation, but also knowing I can't necessarily change that at the moment. http://www.gofundme.com/EliGoesToNepal This means I AM RELYING ON YOU GUYS to DONATE and SHARE my posts and the campaign itself MORE THAN WE HAVE EVER SHARED ANYTHING ELSE in order to raise money to rebuild the Children of the Universe Orphanage. IF YOU HAVE DONATED, sharing is ESPECIALLY helpful as it will show others that you have taken action, and will INSPIRE others to do so as well! I still have a VERY LONG WAY TO GO to reach my initial goal of $10,000, which will undoubtedly increase considering buying land alone for a new orphanage will be a minimum of $20,000. Add on building materials and the cost of labor, and we are looking at quite a hefty amount of USD to give these children a well deserved and proper home.

Posts with links, photos & shared posts don't get distributed in your friends newsfeed as much as text only posts. This is because the corporate FB machine wants you to pay for everything that isn't deemed a 'status update' of what you had for dinner last night. — TAG US IN YOUR POSTS so we can keep up to date with all your incredible efforts & that also means it appears on our walls & therefore shared with our friends too, so your reach is even wider. — DON'T USE ONLY ONE PLATFORM... use Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, Tumblr to tell our story.

🙏🏼 SOMETHING VERY IMPORTANT TO CONSIDER BEFORE YOU DONATE TO THE NEPAL EARTHQUAKE RELIEF 🙏🏼 🔸The Nepal Rastra Bank (NRB) issued a circular to A, B and C class banks in the country on Thursday afternoon (30/04/15) stating that all the amount deposited in them for the purpose of relief for Saturday's Great Quake will be automatically transferred to the Prime Minister's Relief Fund. 🔸THE NEPALI GOVERNMENT IS HOLDING ONTO DONATIONS MADE THROUGH LARGE NGO'S AND AID ISN'T REACHING ITS PEOPLE - WHO NEED IT NOW! 🔸I have witnessed firsthand over the last week that the most impactful work and aid relief is coming from concentrated efforts of teams on the ground that have organised their own fundraising and relief efforts. 🔸In the last 7 days the combined efforts of myself, @bravestofall and another friend have raised $2,476 for relief aid for the Children of the Universe and contributions towards the relief efforts of Support4Sherpas and karmaflights.org (THANK YOU!!!) 🔸Our first priority is finding safe and secure shelter for the 45 displaced children of the orphanage, and our long term goal is to purchase land and rebuild the orphanage bigger and stronger than before. 🔸We are flying out to Kathmandu as soon as possible to assist with caring for the children, moving them into new accommodation and beginning the process of securing land. We have started the process of releasing funds for food and more temp shelter for the children while Tsering (director) begins the challenge of trying to find rental accommodation for the coming months. 🔸Every single penny of your donation will reach the people of Nepal, it will NOT go to the government relief fund and more importantly it will be making a difference IMMEDIATELY! ♥️If you have already donated - sincerely thank you from the bottom of our hearts!♥️ 🔸There is STILL MORE YOU CAN DO TO HELP.🔸 The success of our campaigns is 100% reliant on the impact of social media and the🔹POWER OF THE SHARE BUTTON🔹 (Continued in comments...)

Please read, donate and share my campaign as much as you possibly can... The sooner we have the money to rebuild their home, the sooner they have a safe place during the oncoming monsoon season, and the sooner these vulnerable children have the security they need and deserve.

URGENT: Does anyone have QUALITY CAMPING TENTS that can be donated to Children of the Universe in Kathmandu? 45 kids are currently sleeping outdoors under makeshift "tents" (pictured here) and monsoon season is rapidly approaching.

A FEW VERY IMPORTANT LIFE UPDATES... 🔸I found an orphanage in Nepal called Children of the Universe which has been almost completely destroyed from the recent earthquake. There are now about 45 displaced children sleeping outside, and I have made the decision to go to Kathmandu as soon as possible to be of service & help as much as I possibly can to get these children and the thousands of others who have lost their homes into a safe place. I want to fundraise as much money as possible to get me (and hopefully some friends) there + some warm clothes (I don't even have a matching pair of shoes anymore) + (most importantly) as much money as possible to go towards the rebuilding of this orphanage. 🔸I'm now on day three with no glasses, as my only working pair literally broke in two this past Friday night (they're dangling off my face as I type this), and according to two local glasses shops they are irreparable. I knew this was coming... Some of you may remember my post from almost two months ago about how literally everything I own has broken or fallen apart recently and desperately needs replacing... So, prior to going to Nepal, I must get this eye situation fixed. I'm considering an alternative to glasses that may initially be more expensive, but over the long run will save me a ton of money, because I've had to buy new glasses every year for most of my 25 years of wearing them. The thought of spending another $300-500 for a new pair AGAIN, only for them to break over the next year AGAIN just kind of sickens me. 🔸These are both things that I am going to need some financial assistance with, and I'm looking into starting a crowd funding campaign to raise the funds. I'll be relying on you guys for support, and hope that I can get my eyes fixed + go to Nepal as soon as humanly possible! 🔸My precious angel NongQ (the boy pictured with me here) fractured his arm today & is in a lot of pain. Healing vibes + prayers for this little one are much appreciated! 🔸On a lighter note, I hit a new record on how many chilies I added to my food today... 20! I've either officially turned Asian... or I'm crazy. Maybe both? Don't answer that. 😏 Stay tuned for updates!

Those moments you feel so helpless to do anything in the face of a tragedy so much bigger than you... I woke up around 2 am with this overwhelming feeling of heartache after learning about the earthquake that hit Nepal yesterday and killed hundreds, if not thousands of people. It didn't quite seem to register with me emotionally until those moments... And then I felt the overwhelming closeness of death in any given moment, and life's constant transitoriness. I felt what it would be like to lose those I care about the most and my heart just felt EMPTY. It ached, and I cried, and I could do nothing but reflect on this impassable feeling of emptiness until it washed through me and I eventually fell back asleep. I'm talking to the universe a lot today... Praying for those who need comfort, strength, peace of mind, compassion and love in the face of these devastating losses. Asking for guidance in how I can do my part and be of service when I'm so far away and feel helpless. I know the answers I seek will come to me as long as I have the intention for them to do so. Until then, I will express my love to those of you who have been a part of my life, this ridiculously tragic and simultaneously beautiful journey to here and now, and hope that I never let you forget just how much you mean to me. I love you. I love you. I love you.

I'm talking to the universe a lot today... Praying for those who need comfort, strength, peace of mind, compassion and love in the face of these devastating losses. Asking for guidance in how I can do my part and be of service when I'm so far away and feel helpless. I know the answers I seek will come to me as long as I have the intention for them to do so. Until then, I will express my love to those of you who have been a part of my life, this ridiculously tragic and simultaneously beautiful journey to here and now, and hope that I never let you forget just how much you mean to me. I love you. I love you. I love you.

I miss rolling around in the sand and cuddling with these babes every hour of the day! 💜

I wrote this as a response to a very worried friend of a friend seeking clarity about his children who have "cast aside his teachings" and seemingly let go of the values he instilled in them as kids — and essentially for each of us who find ourselves trying to save people from themselves. Because my words seemed to resonate with quite a few others, I wanted to share my thoughts on the matter with you all as well... Because I love you. I care. And I'm here for you. This is a tough pill to swallow, especially with our closest loved ones, but it's simple: wisdom cannot be taught. If wisdom could be taught, suffering would cease to exist completely. Everyone could simply read the thousands of spiritual texts and personal development/self help books out there, which typically focus on alleviating suffering in our lives, and never have to go through anything painful themselves because they would "know" better. But that's just not how life works. Has any major life lesson ever TRULY resonated with you that you didn't learn "the hard way"? Could your parents tell you anything you didn't think you already knew in your teens or twenties? Would you want to take back or change the trying times you've endured to become the person you are now? Suffering is an inevitable part of every human's existence. And while we do it out of love (and attachment), when we prevent someone from stumbling and falling on their own, we also prevent them from picking themselves back up and experiencing the kind of growth and soul evolution that will ultimately change them for the better, and make them wiser (and hopefully kinder & more compassionate) people. We are essentially telling them "you don't have what it takes to figure it out on your own" — we are denying them the chance to fine tune their intuitive abilities and connect to their higher selves. Every single one of us has the answers we need inside of us already, and we must learn to go within to find those answers, rather than constantly seeking the answers outside of ourselves (yes, even in the form of loving parents who want the absolute best for us). (Continued in comments...)

    We are all on our own journeys, we all have our own lessons to learn in this lifetime, and we all must learn to respect each other's paths without interfering because we think we know better than they do. The best thing we can do for another who is struggling is to be a loving presence in their lives and hold space for them to be themselves and come to their own conclusions. Because they can. And they will. :)

My beautiful friend, Anittaya. Can't believe it's already been three months since I sat down across from her to chat for the first time! She always tells me I am her first farang friend (farang = foreigner) and she will always care for me and cherish our memories together. Of course, I feel the exact same way about her. Thank you for sharing your home and heart with me, dearest Nit. Love you! 💚

Reason number 68425 I love Southeast Asia: at this morning's market I bought 5 kilos of incredibly sweet honey mangoes the size of my head... for less than $3! I'm in HEAVEN!

this - connection this connection got me spun, like which direction now is possible to step in, cept the one with your reflection - that purity - your perfect teeth and im sure of things that i'd question it doesn't worry me for a second - its like - its like i've known you all of my life before it, and more than that - cause you're right the rest is so foreign now when you try to translate it - for me you don't even have to say it cause i know it in my veins but i would still listen here for days to hear you speak poetry and pain insane, cause i know that we're the same i know it like my name what hope could ever claim that we could find home at all this way and its only the beginning come days in service, days of spinning earth and worship, days admitting that i am home with you. {artwork: Alex Grey — Kiss of the Muse // words: Ian Sethi — Home}

this - connection
this connection got me spun, like which direction
now is possible to step in, cept the one with your reflection - that purity - your perfect teeth
and im sure of things that i'd question
it doesn't worry me for a second - 
its like - its like i've known you all of my life
before it, and more than that - cause you're right
the rest is so foreign now when you try 
to translate it - 
for me you don't even have to say it
cause i know it in my veins but
i would still listen here for days to hear
you speak poetry and pain 
insane, cause i know that we're the same
i know it like my name
what hope could ever claim 
that we could find home at all this way
and its only the beginning
come days in service, days of spinning earth and
worship, days admitting that i am home with you. {artwork: Alex Grey — Kiss of the Muse // words: Ian Sethi — Home}

I can barely handle how adorable this little one is! His name is Nong Q, and between him and Namfon, my heart explodes about 7482965 times per day. 💜
