From Bali to the Earth

Written by Gede Prama

During the last few days the Compassion family distributed the “Holy Book” to all corners of the island of Bali, the response from Bali nature was very touching. The sky in the south was decorated with rainbows, the ground in the north shook with a small earthquake, the sun rose on Penulisan Hills accompanied by a very touching pair of eyes, two mountains in the east and in the west were covered with umbrella-shaped clouds.

This morning, one of Jero Mangku who has been a part of Compassion family for quite a long time sent an image of clouds in the shape of an eye. Also appeared in Bali. This is very similar to the message in the Compassion family’s “Holy Book”: “Whatever happens, always meet your true self. Yourself as a witness. It’s that part of yourself that was never born and never died “.

The trick is to sit above all clouds of duality such as bad-good, sad-happy, sick-healthy. Sadness, bad luck, misfortune is similar to black clouds. Joy, luck, happiness is similar to white clouds. Everything come and go. And the true self resembles a pair of eyes that is always calm and quiet as a witness.

From the depths of my heart, thank you to the island of Bali, for welcoming this “Holy Book” in a very touching way.

About the author

Gede Prama

Gede Prama started his spiritual journey through a dialogue with his symbolic Guru in a village at the north of Bali. The journey is then being enriched with his experiences of studying abroad, his meetings with the world greatest spiritual Gurus: His Holiness Dalai Lama, The Venerable Thich Nhat Hanh, as well as Professor Karen Armstrong; and also being deepened by his intense meditation practices.

Despite the fact that he was once a CEO of a large corporation with thousand of employees, and was traveling abroad frequently for the purpose of teaching, yet, being deeply moved by the Bali bombing incident in 2002, he then decided to leave everything and went back to his home island.
He has never leave Bali for the past few years. In fact, he rarely leaves the silence of the forest where he lives, except for the purpose of teaching at the sacred sites within Bali.
