I was on the way visiting Mendut when I saw the monastery adjacent to the temple was so tempting. The gate was open. A beautiful pond at front with lotus flowers and fishes seemed welcoming me. Quiet atmosphere. Hmm.. what a beautiful morning!
I walked slowly and felt the peaceful atmosphere there.
A monk in yellow robe was watering the plants in the backyard. Looks simple, but I know he was in meditative process while doing his work.
I walked around the pond at front. I cannot help myself not to take photo of the lotus flower near the feet of a statue. Suddenly it came to my mind. The overlooked beauty of present moment…
Most of us spend so much time to set goals, further and higher, always looking forwards to what we want to achieve and finally lost in perspective.
As a matter of fact, we need to appreciate what we have now, how far we have come to be at this point, to get all the great things of goals we have achieved. And perhaps the goals that we set might beautifully be there beneath our own feet at present moment.
Whenever you find yourself doubting how far you can go, just remember how far you have come
Remember everything you have faced, all the battles you have won, and all the fears you have overcome
