Bali, just diving
First it would be a sound idea to try to determine what esoteric is:
a) something so crammed with the deepest wisdom that mortals and lesser gods can not grasp the meaning of it
b) something so overloaded with incomprehensible words and phrases that will successfully make any possibility of understanding impossible
c) something you learn at worldwide “Become an Esoteric Master” workshops with crash courses running every second weekend
d) something so simple (yet complex) as a murmur of ocean waves, smell of freshly cooked gado gado, birds singing, a motorbike passing by, a smile on somebody’s face
Just keep in mind, all answers from a to z (and beyond) are absolutely correct.
A good esoteric workout would be to contemplate these two undisputed wisdoms:
“Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is mystery. Live today.”
“Dwelling on history will cost you one eye. Not dwelling on history will cost you both eyes.”
Hmm… True, very true… But is this not a contradiction?
Are we really looking for the wisdom of all wisdoms?
Or we are maybe just searching for a lost child somewhere deep inside us?
Or just for a nice place to stretch after good diving, a cold drink in one hand, a good book in the other hand…?
My personal quest to find the absolute wisdom has been driven by this advice:
“Your wisdom is based on a shitload of your mistakes.”
Second half of the advice I have absorbed in-depth. Now remains just a question of time for the first part to fulfill…:)
Whatever your strategic and tactical goals in your esoteric and enlightened life are, Bali can be a good place to achieve your goals and declare: “
However, it is the place where all these elusive answers that are already ingrained somewhere deep inside you, may gently become visible and clear to you.
As an old diver once upon a time said to an unfortunately deaf buddy:
“Open your scuba valve, open your mind and open your heart.”
