    Why I Live Where I Live.
    Why I Live Where I Live.Lately, when I travel I am often asked the question as to where I live and, when I give my answer the reply is almost always β€œwhy?” Now, I do tend to find this question to be a little strange as for many years I lived in the UK, Australia,...

    I wish I had the means to join you in paradise my friend. Chaos I can accept, it is all the traits you describe about the West that have made me a stranger in my own country. I spent a week staring at the ocean (I actually only worked 2 full days) trying to find that peace the ocean always brings me, but cars on the beach, still too many tourists, my peace eluded me. I don't need to ask you Why, I understand perfectly. It's not about having more, it's about experiencing Life in all its glory

    #24 Well, I know Indonesia somewhat from the pollution of Jakarta to far more seducing far away cities. Nature is stunning but it is also often utterly destroyed like for plantations in Kalimantan. Human culture is surprisingly diverse with a not so overwhelming veneer of Islam. Coming from Japan, what I would be missing is the high tech buzz of Tokyo where I work for example. I know I would lose cleanliness but that it would be replaced with kindness. But it is indeed a vast country so if your point is to say that I am missing a lot, I can concede it readily. Now, about coming to Indonesia to change my mind... ;-)

    "The spectacular landscapes dotted with majestic mountains peppered with volcanoes whose sole purpose seems to be to try and reach up and touch a sky, delicious with stars. Indonesia has the ability to seduce and, when one has succumbed to her charms she will call like a plaintive siren from the sea each time you try and leave her." Seriously? Would that I had written it. It's exactly how I feel about it, without knowing it. Riveting, emotive words @Paul Walters

    Interesting point you made about the respect for age in Indonesia compared to the orderly "geriatric-hotels" created in the West for people who are considered past their sell-by-date in the West. I also do find the topography of so many islands in Indonesia to be an interesting cultural facet of Indonesia. The passion you personally have shines through on the page, that is perhaps a greater testimony because you do make places come alive, even to the point where a part of us wonder why we are not making the same choices you have!

    I can see why you settled after all the travel you've done @Paul Walters. Or at least settled until you get the urge to move on again? It sounds like a laid back lifestyle in one sense and a real adventure in many other senses of the word. The coast just looks so appealing. Your home is right on the Coast, yes? I love the idea of cultural diversity and acceptance. Because of all the stories I've read about Indonesia/Bali from you, I can truly appreciate how kind and accepting people are there. You are surrounded by the best of so many worlds in Indonesia. Love the photos! PS: How long have you lived there now? I'm glad you are happy, that's what matters the most!

    #9 What a great reply dearest Promo. It is like changing a 'Habit' what will take some time to adopt in ones system. Reward anyhow will be that you graduate will preserve your own energy re frustration of opinion and judgement of others, hence, your 'urge' of forming opinion or judgement. Things gently will become ease in you while your self confidence will grow exponentially. If you simply replace 'believing' in to 'Know it is so...' no one else can tell you any different. Great to read it is benefiting you on your own term and pass. :O)) It is intended that way.

    Both stories broght to mind a few scenes of Julia Roberts in the film "Pretty Woman."

    The most memorable one for me was when Vivian (Julia Roberts) returns to a up market fashion shop, where yesterday she was wearing her casuals but today is now dressed to the nines...
    🎬
    ...Shop assistant: Hello, can I help you?

    Vivian: I was in here yesterday, you wouldn't wait on me.

    Shop assistant: Oh.

    Vivian: You people work on commission, right?

    Shop assistant: Yeah.

    Vivian:
    Big mistake.
    Big.
    Huge.

    I have to go shopping now.

    #7 That is the biggest mistake thinkable. Mirroring some one is the same as putting energy and focus in something that is some one else is stead of remaining oneself. If you stand in front of a mirror, just do for argument sake, and concentrate at the mirror, not the reflection of you. Just do that for about three minutes and it will sink in. The mirror is just a mirror, and object not doing anything at all. The energy of you, or anyone else, isn't touching you, harming you, appeal to you, no matter how they try. You will understand that having any opinion on what ever subject, any judgement on any person, has no ground, hence is a waste of time and energy. If you adopt the principle of the mirror, you won't even feel or become annoyed about opinion or judgement of others. Since these only are based upon the idea or vision of the other, not knowing which path you have walked, on what grounds you decide. Hence, putting energy in judgement or opinion of others, regardless you or any topic, in fact is useless. If you quit mimicking others, you will have eye and focus for other things to observe. ":O) Just give it a try and be your own Creator :O)

    #2 @Lisa Gallagher I can't thank you enough for your kind words and encouragement, Lisa, it means a lot to me. It took me a lot of self-contemplation to go ahead and write about it, but then I really wanted to.

    You are so right about donning casuals outside of work hours irrespective of where you are living. And the kitchen, of course, room service can never help unwind like a cooking/baking session does.

    I agree with your point about the lady at the stall being made to feel inferior at some point in her life. It could very well be a reason for her to reflect that same treatment on someone else. A person confident in their own skin would never have let themselves treat others so poorly even though they might have been treated badly, themselves, at some point of time. Karmic logic ensures I never overstep my boundaries and I just hope others understand the same too.

    My husband and I had both decided to spend every waking moment out, exploring the city. I guess that is what helped us survive the hotel stay. :D

    Lisa 🐝 Gallagher
    22/08/2017 #2 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher
    What a wonderful topic for a buzz @Proma 🐝 Nautiyal. Let me first say, I can relate so much when it comes to staying in a 5 star hotel. I'm not comfortable either because too many do walk around all dressed up and when I'm away, I like to dress down. I don't want to have to dress up for breakfast, dinner or to even walk through the halls and lobby. For those reasons, I stay away from 5 star hotels.

    I'm glad you found your voice and you were able to speak up for yourself when it came to the crystal lamp! It baffles me when people have no problem treating others as if they are less important than another based on how they dress etc... it baffles me more when they don't have a hard time making comments that reflect how they feel inside. I think some people like that have possibly been made to feel inferior at some point in their lives and treat others as they were treated. Maybe by speaking up to the woman who was selling the stones and more made her think about her actions?

    Thank you for sharing this because we all deserve to be treated with dignity. This is a good reminder. For the record, I would have gone stark raving mad having to stay in a hotel room for 2 months. I could have handled a 1 bedroom room with a kitchen but not just a room. I think my husband and I would have really gotten on each others nerves lol. (that's an understatement).

    #1 Thank you @Devesh 🐝 Bhatt. The only reason I felt the need to write this post is because there are quiet a few people whom I know who use this phrase more as a shield to avoid conversations and even mask the most trivial of activities by saying that they are busy. The term itself has become such that even kids have started using it to postpone their chores. Like you said, you are genuinely busy and you acknowledged the need of following up. How many people actually take the pain of following up? That is what I tried to address.
    Devesh 🐝 Bhatt
    17/08/2017 #1 Devesh 🐝 Bhatt
    This topic has many posts. I never liked a single one of them until now. Simply because this has an element of introspection in it.

    You have applied it to your life before stating it for others, hence it is not a presumption.

    Honestly, i use the words "i am busy" because i am genuinely busy but it takes mutual understanding and consistency in following up that works. It is best to inform some people of the busy-ness beforehand.

    On a different note, being always there when needed is at best a conviction, a promise can have very regretable consequences.

    Geez Gert,
    You reminded me that I had a manual typewriter back in the day. Most of my craziest ideas were handwritten. You had to physically push the letters and the words onto the page. Then came the electric typewriter and then computers and then programs that track changes. Perhaps that is why we can now identify the madman, architect, carpenter and judge.

Find what interests you in the topic, the question or emotion that it raises in you, and respond" I have had somewhat of a "madman energy" SINCE I experienced a conversion experience that took me into a spiritual world that not been opened up to me prior to this happening.....I then began to write like a mad man at certain times. It was times I could not call up on my own, like sit down and say, I am going to write now as if with a madman energy.

    "Whatever joy there is in the writing process can come only when the energies are flowing freely-when you're not stuck." I find this to be true. When I am stuck, it's because the ideas, the words and sentences are not coming together. It can be frustrating. But give it a bit of space and more time and suddenly they come maddeningly together at the same time that I am forced to sit to literally get it all out on paper. Enjoyed this Gert.

    I am the original butcher of the English language. Certainly here of BeBee writing is a central theme. But the largest issue is communications in the broader sense.

    Even though i have an aversion to punctuation, i have witnessed the other end where folks cant just blurt out on the screen a free style of writing as each sentence becomes an epic journey. The idea in their writing gets lost in the diagraming of sentence structure.

    I loved the concept you presented. Thanks.

    Lovely Gert! Core of it is that we should do our thinking in separate modes. De Bono's hats are a similar approach. Freewriting a great one as you put a piece of paper on your screen and just type madly as a madman boring the left brain Judge all the way. It works every time!!

    The chief trouble with our society I say is that it does not spend enough time delving into the antonyms of bullshit. It is easy to point out but this song speaks to the actual challenge of the antonym - our actions speak louder than our protestations about BS.

    Alone and Introspective makes one better. Alone and Judgemental makes one bitter. To each his loneliness, for good or for bad; for it makes one rewind over the times one has had.

    I am not a loner either, but I'll always choose to be on my own than in bad company. I read your beautiful poem several times, Pascal.
    I would point out a verse: "A beautiful loser will always be more genuine than a pedantic winner" because I don't like people being called losers.

    Being comfortable with oneself as company is challenging. Had that experience in uni. Not too many friends which was fine.
