So last night Thailand time / middle of the morning LA time I wake up in a cold sweat. I felt so alone. Sat up on the pull-out sofa only to see a table of freshly made veggies and chicken with a bowl of soup left for me.
I ate and scrolled the web for what sites I want to see while I am not in treatment. Did I mention that I am not in Bangkok – I am Pattaya – which is about 1.5 hours away near the gulf of Thailand.
Ok so there were two sites I am confident I want to see here one is the Sanctuary of Truth and the second is an Elephant Village. I began to get excited about getting my treatments during the day and returning to here on the weekends and soak up some of the sites and really enjoy my time in nature and culture.
I read so much about the sites I learned more than I earned for.
The Sanctuary of Truth is a castle that they started construction in 1981. That was 42 years 8 months 9 days (as listed on the their site). Then my brain started spinning and took a run down a rabbit hole to when I was born until now was 41 years, 4 months and 5 days ago, which is 15,103 days. Ok… now this is becoming more and more of a must see in my book.
As I continued on the page I learned this is the largest wooden castle in the world. Then this extremely jaw dropping sentence:
Everyone will find the meaning of life that “Who are we, where did we come from? how to live How will life go on? and what is the purpose of life?”
What a sentence… Everyone will find the meaning of life… Who are we, where do we come from, how to live, how will life go on, what is the purpose of life…I mean this really sums up what fighting a deadly diagnosis makes you think about…”How can this one site add so much value to my healing” I think immediately.
Then it goes on to have a page about discovering (which while writing this my hand immediately put discerning-note to self) the truth. Discovering the Truth… it’s a 7 pillar situation so here are the cliff notes
Truth #1 “Who are we? Where are we from?”
Four elements formed- earth, water, wind, and fire! Bringing light to the equality of human beings different in races, religions, or conditions, but we all have the same destination in the end.
Truth # 2 “How do we live our lives?” The natural law of life. The human life cycle of birth, aging, and pain that common nature will.
Truth #3 “The End of Life”. The final stage of a life cycle is “death” – What is left behind are those things accomplished for others once you.
Truth #4 “Samples of Civilization” Each story and goodness still affect the lives of the next generation.
Truth #5 “What is a life goal?” show a path of answer guidelines for practice
Truth #6 “Society is like a two-sided coin” represent the guidance path of how to compromise and what shall happen if we choose not to do.
Truth #7 “The beginning of society” Family represents the bond between people in the family which reminds us of the true love of parents, what they had sacrificed, and what have we done for them.
So I listed all of these to then tell you how my imagination went on an adventure. I imagined I was loved completely by a man, I made cake that others enjoyed and invested their time in learning and I was surrounded by community. IT was part of my own truth that I needed to come to grips with…I may have not figured that out without surfing the web to find sites to see.
Until tomorrow my lovely friends. Sending all the love in the world right to your heart.
The adventure continues.
