Who looks outside, dreams.
Who looks inside, awakens.
I am finding it quite difficult to decide what to do first, especially when I wake up in the morning, I have not altogether let go of ‘the schedule’ to just be in the moment. I find myself huffing, puffing, harrumphing and finger tapping while I try to settle. My mind goes into over-drive with endless nonsensical thinking. Doing nothing. I read somewhere that doing nothing is the most productive activity you will ever undertake. It sounds both simple and fabulous, with thoughts of lazy days at the beach, maybe a deserted island in Bali somewhere! But doing nothing is a lot harder than it sounds. Who am I without my busyness? It’s a good question to start with. Something for me to work on I think!
Have felt a bit like the walking wounded over the last couple of days. A visit to the doctors with an ear infection and a pulled thigh muscle from an overly ambitious yoga practice, sees me confined into the realm of ‘gentle activity’ for a few days. So with this in mind I took a motorbike for a spin today over the hill to another island and hung out at a place called ‘The Palms’. Lovely day with amazing views. Ahem…… a little pic of me doing nothing.
Have got my GoPro with me and have been taking a few videos which I will publish shortly. I’m having a few difficulties downloading but will get my head round this and hopefully you will get to see just how beautiful Bali is. I’m staying at a lovely resort called Mahagiri Resort. The gorgeous, white-sanded beach around the resort is called Light House Beach and I highly recommend the place. The people, the service … everyone going out of their way to help. I wish you were with me.
Till we speak again…….
