Peace Within Me…

Peace Within Me…

I’ve been to Hong Kong over twelve times in the past four years. Simply put, Hong Kong is one of my favorite places on earth. While looking at my Passport today, I realized I’ve visited that fair city four times in 2011.

I feel in love July 2001. Durning my first trip to Hong Kong. Each trip I take, I always return to Ngong Ping, Lantau Island, to see my lover; the Big Buddha. I once went there 3 hours before my flight departed, spending less than 20 minutes there. Just enough time to walk to the Buddha then head back. It’s that important to me. I choose to close my trips to Hong Kong there. Burying the past and setting intentions for my future.

I have never found a place so filled with people, that I feel so calm. I feel at home and filled with peace. I can’t explain it. It happened 18 minutes into my first cable car ride, as I crested the hill; it caught my eye and I was never the same. I burst into tears, because I truly felt as I belonged. An indescribable peace, a comfortable stillness washed over me. Each time I visit the monastery, I discover new pieces of me, and I am inspired, renewed. Filled with joy and reflection. I still shed tears of fulfillment.

No matter how many times I go, I’m always breath taken. Feeling deeply at peace, present and aware of my blessings and gifts. Grateful for my contributions and possibilities. Soothed to my soul.
