I truly appreciate for your continuity to read this blog although I have been off from writing on this blog for almost 2 years. Thank you also for your inputs, comments, supports and contribution which have been given to this blog. I am so happy to response to your enthusiasm to this blog. Also, as you suggested, I will keep updating and improving this blog, so it will come to you in the beautiful touch and it will become more interesting to read.
It has been a long time I did not write for this blog. After wandering in many cities around the world, my journey of life has brought me back to my hometown, Jogja, Indonesia. Living back in the village, in which I am surrounded by the people with their simplicities, the beautiful views of mount Merapi and the rice field, these have provided me with the sense of natural life and brought my soul back to the nature of myself.
I experienced a lot of things in the last few years, 2 flip sides of life, up and down moments: such as being bounded very close to my attachment, experiencing changes of the situations and conditions, experiencing physical illness and emotional suffering, getting lost in the middle of my journey of life, searching for the light, standing up and moving forward to the new way, and learning from all of those moments. It is interested to share to all of you, how I learn to get up from the unpredictable situations, to deal with all of the feelings, and to find the new equilibrium.
What I learned from this experience is the pathways of life are not always straight, but also up and down, sometimes it is twisted with turn around, even sometimes we may find the dead-end road. But, regardless what kind of ways that we have to face, the keys to pass through the various conditions of the ways are, keeping the hope, being grateful, and adapting to the changes. In addition, my practice of meditation also has helped me to remain calm, so that I can find the center of myself again and re-connect to the universe to discover the way out.
Well, I also hope that you can take a lot of lessons from your life story. It doesn’t matter whether you like it or not, the most important thing is it shares values to develop your soul to become you right now.
Enjoy to read this blog and wish you have a “better” you.
