First tropical heat. First balinese 32 teeth smile (by the way, each is so white!!). First unfamiliar smell of spices. First look at the Indian ocean. It’s all about fascinating Bali. I think the first word you should learn about Bali is SPIRIT.
Maybe it seems kinda mystic word, but it explains how everything works in Bali. Really, I’m not kidding. If you are in a bad mood or angry everything is going wrong. One day when I gone surfing, I was so angry at one guy, who dropped me in, thus the waves were so small. I was sitting on the line- up in a bad temper and it was getting worse and worse. Suddenly, a huge wave came and in 30 seconds I broke my legrope and then my board. How can you imagine that!!I was the biggest loser in the world at that moment! I do believe that this story is an instructive example for those, who don’t believe in karma and so on. Trust me, everyboby, including me, was the same before coming to Bali.
Now I realise that every idea I’m thinking on, every action I’m making: it’s all have the consequences. You can see it so clear, especially in Bali. What’s why most of Balinese people are so happy, so willing to help, so kind and friendly, smilling every second, even if they live in a poor cabin with 10 other relatives, even if they don’t know English at all. They will help you despite everything, of course if you need help. Surely, here here we can also find bad people as everywhere in the world, I hope you feel it before having a deal with them.
So, I expect everybody will enjoy this semester in this magical place. Just remember thoughts are material.
Nevertheless, keep smiling! It’s the key to every door.
