Everything is treasure. All things, given to us by everything, are treasures. Do not take the infinite treasures you receive every day for granted. Acknowledge them, enjoy them, be grateful for them.
Water, the way it moves and molds to become a part of everything it touches. Water never has any expectations about where it will go or what will it do, water, just is. Always acting in the present moment. Constantly moving in the direction it is meant to go. Only present action can lead you to the achievement of your goals and aspirations.
Water is balanced, always seeking to reach a neutral temperature within its environment. Water never remains in a constant state of extremes. Both, the water boiling in the teapot and the ice cube will always return back to a neutral environmental temperature. View the world with indifference, look at all possibilities from a neutral point of view taking on no extremes. Then, take action within that moment when you feel it is your duty to do so.
Become aware of water and you will become like water. Can you see the countless lessons that can be gained through the understanding of water? Cultures all over the world, especially in Ubud, have sanctified water. Not just because we need it to survive but because it is a great teacher.
Being balanced and being aware in the present to take action without expectations. This is becoming water. “Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless — like water. Now you put water in a cup, it becomes the cup; You put water into a bottle it becomes the bottle; You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.”
-Bruce Lee .
During my time in Ubud I was lucky enough to receive the treasure of friendship. Through a mutual friend I was able to meet two, out of this world, bloggers and absolutely amazing humans @angeliquelini & @unboundedambition . These two close friends accepted me as family and the time we shared together in UBUD was beyond words! We “did Ubud”, to say the least lol, temples, waterfalls, monkeys, raw vegan cafes, insane markets, rice terraces, and built the foundation for a true life long friendship.
We worked together to create some amazing content! They inspire me daily to continue to work as hard as I can to produce original creative content and be the person I will be. They will inspire you too so go check them out!
