An attempt to make sense of the day –
Having just had dinner, two bunches of very ripe bananas & completed a shower day three in Bangkok is done. Well, it will be if I can come to terms with the fact that lots of things don’t feel like they line up.
I mean, is there really any point raving about how tonight’s bananas only cost 8 baht, & pork with fried rice out for dinner 50 baht when I have costs at home in New Zealand that cost lots of times more? I mean, do we need to balance all of this out? How do we release stress? What was I REALLY meant to do with today?
What did I do? Plenty of random talks with new people, walking, train rides, interesting stuff to look at. No photos. Some pondering.
Am I meant to take photos, & if I do what are they supposed to prove?
I have to come to the place where I’m not worried about how much acommodation costs. Instead must ask, did that place provide the environment for planning & actioning a plan that has more added value than expense?
Instead of trying to get the cheapest dinner I have to ask myself what the body needs. What will help this body to do today & the future in wholeness; with health?
It is time to learn some new ways. Not take pictures because I want approval or to be recognised. Not skipping a needed meal because other people I’m with are in a hurry to get to the next thing. Nor constantly doing the maths over spending. There are ways to overcome all of this..
