“We don’t realize that, somewhere within us all, there does exist a supreme self who is eternally at peace.” Liz Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love
I went to the Museum Puri Lukisan today to see traditional Balinese art. The detail and workmanship in the Balinese art is unparalleled. I saw many stories in the art that I felt in my heart. Stories about family, love, ritual, worship. My guide explained much of the Hindu religious beliefs. Bali is a melting pot of Hindu and Muslim religions, Asian, Arabic and European cultures.
After the museum, I headed to the rice terraces and had lunch. After lunch, I climbed the rice terrace – no small feat. Many, many stairs and climbing dirt paths. This was a lot of work and not a trek for the weary. This trek was very physically demanding. I greatly enjoyed sunset restorative yoga at the Yoga Barn in Ubud afterward. It was very relaxing. The sound of rain was soothing. To top off the evening, a seafood dinner on the beach. Another great day in paradise!
