Chop Suey -Saturday

Listening intently, even tho’ the message could be one of great value, if you do  not understand the language, you can only watch and listen to the words being spoken and assimilate what you can.  This was my first time to experience such a moment,  My first time in a foreign country where the primary language was totally foreign to my ears.  One of the other participants when we talked of this, said, ” what we need to do is just drink in the essence, and the ambiance of being here”.

The greatest lessons from my last trip to Japan, were the ones where I learned about myself, how I cope, and that I managed through all the various challenges to come away with heartfelt connection to the country and the people there.

It is about covering the distance between me, myself and I and my surroundings.  It didn’t matter really what country I was in, or who was there. What mattered was that I was alive, I was taking in new visual and auditory information, and my taste buds were experiencing new and wonderful delicacies.

It all seems subtle at the time, because you are living it, 100% the world is vibrating with newness.  It is the same sky, but … no… it’s not…. you are drinking water, eating food, but …nothing is the same. Things you never thought you could do…ie. enjoy their bathing customs, by the time I left, it was all so natural and part of my day.  You assimilate, you simply live in a mindful state.  If  I had gone there thinking of doing that, I doubt it would have happened

Life is Art…………………. in nature, when one goes with the flow and allows life to happen,  the results are often extraordinary.  when we try to structure every second of our day, we go against the natural ebb and flow of the world around us.
