Monday Moment: Bali, Indonesia

05.March 2012

Bali, Monday Moment

Tirta Empul Temple, Bali, IndonesiaBali is infused with beauty and grace. Temples abound, rice paddies fill the valleys, and the volcano Mt Agung — acting as the spiritual center of the island — dominates the skyline.

There is balance is everything the Balinese do. Offerings for the gods, and the demons. Taking care of the water, and the earth. Living their religion, and honouring their culture.

I see them struggling with the onslaught of tourism. Wanting to take advantage but, at the same time, realizing that it is diminishing all that makes Bali beautiful.

It is a truly stunning place. If you’re planning on going, I suggest you go sooner rather than later.
