Its been a while since I blogged. Just spent 4 weeks in a retreat out of Malaysia. I wondered this time would I miss home. Strangely the moment the next experience happen, I hardly think of home. I noticed that I think of home when conditions are less favorable that what I experience at home. Looks like the mind is constantly making comparison and judgement.
As I see more n more of daily scenes in the place that I went, I notice an acceptance or a settling in to see what the world I view then is the norm. I came to accept walking bare footed , people spitting betel nut juice in the road, walking around wt sarong and is norm.
When I touch down in LCCT n saw rain, the mind was so happy as it had not seen rain for 1 month.
What I know for this moment on Christmas Day is that I choose to give myself a present of being in the present moment. Merry Christmas !!!
