Been here for 7 day and feel like this is the perfect place for people who need meditative mind.

The best time to visit Shwedagon Pagoda - Part IV

Afternoon to dawn time is my favourite time to visit Shwedagon Pagoda. Why? Because i still can capture the bright sun , the sunset and also the night light around without getting sweating because the yangon weather.

Pilgrim usualy come after dawn time around 5 pm. If you want experienced the praying time with a lot of monk and local come after 5 pm.

I can spent hours here, usualy from 3 pm till 9 pm. In the night time, you can see the real beauty of the temple.

The important thing before visit this place is you should know how to dress. Short and open arm cloth not allow here. You should barefoot too when you enter the temple. There is tourist officer will check you in the front door. If your cloth not respecful enough they will give you kind of sarong and you should wear it.

I wear my own batik that make me be center of attention because its look different and unique. But as usual the local think im Thai nationality and keep greet me with one words "Sawaddi Ka"!

Shwedagon Pagoda Myanmar - Part III

In solitude there is healing, speak to your soul, listen to your heart beat. Sometime in the absence of noise we find the meaning of our life. 

Because wisdom grows in quiet place...

July 2017

The spiritual journey had nothing to do with being nice. It was about being real. Authentic. Having boundaries. Honoring my space first others second. And in this space of self care being nice just happened, it flowes not motivated by fear but by love.

I just back from my trip to Myanmar , Bangkok and Laos. Been almost two week travel alone. A lot of contemplating moment. Silent time and positive self talk.

My escape.

14 February 2017

But here is what the fairytales won’t tell you – sometimes we meet the loves of our lives, but we do not get to keep them.

We do not get to marry them, to pass our years alongside them, to hold their hands on their deathbeds after a life lived well and together.
We do not always get to hold onto the loves of our lives, because in the real world, love doesn’t conquer all.
 It doesn’t resolve irreparable differences, it doesn’t triumph over illness and disease, it doesn’t bridge religious rifts or save us from ourselves when we’re corrupting.
We don’t always get to hold onto the loves of our lives because sometimes love is not all that there is.
Sometimes you have a whole, wide world to go explore and they are scared to venture out of their backyard. 
Sometimes you have bigger dreams than one another.
Sometimes the biggest, most loving move you can possibly make is to let each other go.
Other times you don’t get a choice.
But here’s another thing they won’t tell you about finding the love of your life: 
not ending up with them doesn’t disqualify their significance.

Some people can love you more in a year than others could love you in fifty. Some people can teach you more within a single day than others could teach you over the entire course of a lifetime.

Some people come into our lives only for a particular period of time, but make an impact that no one else can ever quite match or replace.
And who are we to call those people anything but the loves of our lives?
Who are we to downplay their significance, to rewrite their memories, to alter the ways in which they changed us for the better, simply because our paths diverged? 
Who are we to decide that we desperately need to replace them – to find a bigger, better, stronger, more passionate love that we can hold onto for a lifetime?
Maybe we just ought to be grateful that we got to meet these people at all.
That we got to love them. That we got to learn from them. That we got to have our lives expand and flourish as a result of having known them.
Meeting and letting go of the love of your life doesn’t have to be your life’s single greatest tragedy.
If you let it, it can be your greatest blessing.

To all my past story,

Thank you ...
Happy Valentine's Day ...

New Year 2017

Be easy on yourself
do not rush to write down, half hearted resolutions
and force accelerated change on your life

To resolve means to find solution
for a problem

you are not a problem
the way you showed up the past year
was neccessary for your growth to happen

Now its time..
to pause,
to reflect,
to learn,
to let go
to create an intention

a positive call to shift
rooted in self love..
back with your action

Afternoon meditation at Angkor Wat , Siem Reap - Cambodia

The past is gone, the future is not yet here, and if we do not go back to ourselves in the present moment, we cannot be in touch with life....

It's quite late, i order the tuk tuk from my hotel to take me to Angkor Wat. It will be my second time to visit this amazing UNESCO heritage site.

The first time i visit this place is long long time ago in 2010. I remember , how i wake up pretty early ,around 3 AM to catch the sunrise with very crowd group of tourist near the lake and just focusing to take picture.

and today, I choose to revisit again Angkor Wat , with the different perspektive.

I feel pretty lucky, to explored a huge area of the temple after the rain.  Quiet time. Less Tourist. I just feel like i go back to the old era of khmer.

This place truly have mejesty aura around.  I feel the stone talk to each other. I can hear the wind moving and the bird chirping.

I read from the history. The construction of the temple is symbolism between the setting sun and death. Miniature replica of the universe in stone and represent earthly model of the cosmis world.

This place is great place for meditate.

 Just walk in silent around here

 Be Present , Be Peaceful .....
