Tropical beach, look at that water, this is the Ayana Resort and Spa in Bali. Hmmm I have a friend who is on holiday in Bali, she has been sending back the most incredible pictures. Her face beams in every picture where she is in them. Got me thinking, admittedly some of the pictures had me thinking ahhhh yes, a massage by the pool, then a lazy afternoon enjoying the tropical sunshine and breezes.
This is Huilo, Huilo in Neltume, lodges built on a biological reserve, they are environmental wonders. they are uniquely in touch with their surroundings… perfect for nature lovers, lots of hiking, exploring, totally different kind of holiday.
This is a picture found on 500px.com, of Dawn in Bali by Ko Zaw………………….. does this calm the mind or what.. Ok, today I’ll go with the calm, quiet atmosphere of the gentle waters and soothing sounds provided by the beaches and coastline of the areas shown in these pictures to colour my day.
We can’t always be where we might like to be at any given moment in time, but we can thanks to the technology today, be where our hearts take us. The destination is usually coordinated by our often busy chattering minds. In taking the time for a quiet moment, the mind will sigh with relief…. share with me a quiet moment… allow your thoughts to travel with mine in to the depth of the blues and greens, see the little white pebble like shapes, the tiny bird,… then allow you eyes to drift beyond towards the horizon, …. feel your breathing , enjoy the soft swell of your chest as you silently allow the moment to wash over you.
Take this shared moment, the soft, sweet tenderness of now… and carry it into your day…
Seriously, luxury lagoon villa, for those of you who needed a different visual.. now did that get a smile……
Carry the smile all through the day.. you’ll see it is catching.
Short meditations work, whether you want them to or not.
