“Bali Art Of Peace”, Beautiful Message From Ashram Avalokitesvhara, North Bali

Bali Art Of Peace
Here is a beautiful message from Ashram Avalokitesvhara, North Bali “Bali Art Of Peace”

In the place where
the mountain is embraced by ocean, in that place Bali Elder built a beautiful shrine, a beautiful temple
Uluwatu, Tanah Lot, Silayukti, Ponjok Batu , Pulaki, Batur are some of the examples.

Mountain is the symbol of masculine, Ocean is the symbol of feminine.

The spiritual invitation then, learn to unite the spirit of masculine and feminine within.

Once again, If you want to be healthy, happy and holy learn to unite the spirit of masculine and feminine within.

As a practical step, keep in the heart that those experience of pain, pleasure, sorrow, joy, sad, glad are all clouds.

You are not those clouds, you are the witnessing sky.

In both meditation and daily life, learn to be the witness.
Keep reminding yourself again and again that you are not the experience, you are the witnessing awareness.

Experiences like sad, glad, sorrow, joy, pain, pleasure, those are experience, that keep coming and going.

But if you want to unite the spirit of masculine and feminine within, learn to be a compassionate witness.

You are not the clouds of those experiences , you are the witnessing sky.

In the moment where you unite the spirit of masculine and feminine within, you can be easily happy and healthy
that is what I mean today by “Bali art of peace”.
