Balinese culture

Some years ago
During our trip to Bali.….Eric  a friend of ours wrote these words… he was in the swimmingpool and watched a girl offer in de small temple aside the pool. Here goes his lil poem (Thx Eric  Ur great poet)
I swim alone in the pool when a Balinese girl offers for Shiva.A moment of intimicy….
I nestle in a corner of the pool and watch.
She puts flowers and light some incense. Than she prayers.while her left hand hold the incense …
she holds her right arm right up and moves her wrist and let her fingers move slowly from left to right. She does this several times.Than she leaves while the smell of incense dozed me with every breaststroke..
I dont believe i swim faster than before..but this intimit experience shimmers.

    Eastern cultures have much to offer when it comes to spiritual harmony

    Hi hun! 🙂

    Yes, I lost 3Kg. so far and it IS a nasty bug – I’m recovering slowly, but the nights are of fever and sweating, the days are of coughing and generally feeling weak and debilitated.

    Monday I have to go get my medication, so I’m going to get some night nurse cold remedy as well.

    I’ll beat this one way or another…

    I have quite a collection of video tapes stored in my living room – mostly science fiction, but also war movies, adventures and a collection of Eurovision Song contest videos – sad or what? LoL!

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.

        Hi hun! 🙂

        Much better today – just coughing up loats of mucus, but no sign of infection! 🙂

        The night nurse comes in capsules – two taken before bed and I’ll sleep well! 🙂

        Hmmm… I would say watching Christina Gulbranson singing Elverdansen is positive! LoL!!!

        Love and hugs!

        Prenin.

      • chicasl10 says:

        haha and i was thinking a gorgious young nurse is walking into his room lol
        this is funny Prenin.
        tc and be well soon

  7. Lovely poem 🙂 A moment shared in this world that I am not familiar with, but am loving hearing more about!

  8. Traditions of unfamiliar places are only strange to a stranger. These forms of spiritual devotion
    unit participants with All. Harmony follows and extreme peace prevails.
