…..And there I was in a place on the earth that most people call heavenly; the northern west coast of Bali. Here in a small resort in Amed with black sands at my feet and fishing vessels bouncing along the shore a the end of the day, I was replete. Never far away from my experience with this perfect setting was the restlessness of my mind. My walking eased the restlessness and as I absorbed the beauty of the sunset it and practiced paying attention to the breath, it came to me that we seek perfection in a most imperfect world. And it is the seeking of something else, something more that makes us restless and unhappy.
So I paid close attention to feeling of the black sands squishing through my toes, the sound of the gentle breeze blowing in from the Bali Sea and the imposing back drop of sacred Gunung Batur; the most spectacular eye candy in the natural world. I breathed, I watched and I loved the perfection of the world around me, through my imperfect vision. I was a part of this moment, in this place, right now; my energy completing the experience.
Ah Bali! Here is where the search for perfection ends and living begins.
