Going Bananas and Still So in Love



Maybe this doesn’t seem insane to you. I’ve never found an example that shows the rate of Bali growth as eloquently as these two photos of the same flower taken less than 24 hours apart.

Yesterday afternoon I shot the top image and posted it on my blog. About 10:00 a.m. this morning I happened to glance in that direction. I couldn’t believe my eyes! So I apologize for the repeat theme, but it proves to me I’m not crazy. I’m not just imagining trees that spring out of the earth and blossom overnight, growth here really is out of control.

Which sheds light on another area. Not only are things on the physical plane amped up and intensified, so too, on the spiritual plane. Inspiration and revelation seem to ooze from every nook and cranny of this island. Healers from all over the world come to Bali to work because it’s easier. Their healing gifts are supported by the life-force here, the same life-force that makes my banana flower burst it’s casing and bear fruit overnight.

Bali is magic. I don’t want to try too hard to figure it out. I’m willing to be like Peter Pan (I do believe in fairies, I do believe in fairies) and just allow myself to be amazed.  And why not? Bali never fails to deliver. And I’m in love, I’m still so in love.

    Yes! Everything in Bali is accelerated. Life, death, decay are all on speed. But so is the magic. It is stronger here. When we moved here I thought “island of the gods” was a creative marketing ploy. Now it just sounds like a matter of fact description of Bali.

      I thought the same, that the name could apply to any of the islands of Hawaii, or the Caribbean, or other tropical, lush places. Great marketing gimmick. But you’re so right. Here it doesn’t describe the landscape, it’s the almost tangible presence of the unseen that makes that name so apropos to THIS island!
