  • Day Two Mindful Farm, Pang Term Thailand.

    We wake at 6am and have instant coffee.

    Pi Nan has Dominic read from his teachers book on meditation.

    You are flowers. All of you are flowers. One day your visa will be up and you will pass on. You must love those close to you, but you cannot love onto and keep to yourself. You bloom for only a short time and then you are death. Breathe and feel the earth with your steps.

    We walk for sometime along the road. It is an amazing morning filled with birds, fog, mist and the sound of the dirt beneath our feet. Silence, no talking. Then we sit for another time period, I am not sure how long - but sitting for even 10 minutes seems like eternity for me.

    It is time for breakfast. Lots of sticky rice and vegetables.

    The mud huts are on need of repair. We allow water to trickle down from the waterfall Pi Nan built and fill a small hole we dug out in the morning. This quickly mixes well by walking and mixing in the hole, Dominic and I have the task at hand.

    The air is heavy today, not much of a breeze.

    Do you know any songs, work songs Pi Nan?

    Lah Lah Gorn....

    Life have to be separate for some times.
    The eyeball is what represents the center of love.
    You express to someone your deepest love by the eyeball.

    This song feels appropriate. He tries repeating the song so I can learn - I am still practicing.

    The mud slinging continues until dinner.
