It's waiting for you to awaken

Still gathering my thoughts regarding my recent vacation to the Golden Triangle in Thailand, right at the intersection of Thailand, Burma (aka Union of Myanmar), and Laos.

Listening to some old Eagles music as I was going though my many photos. Love the lyrics of their song "Learn to be still". It kind of says it all. Remember ... "it's waiting for you to awaken"


EAGLES - Learn To Be Still Lyrics

It's just another day in paradise
As you stumble to your bed
You'd give anything to silence
Those voices ringing in your head
You thought you could find happiness
Just over that green hill
You thought you would be satisfied
But you never will-
Learn to be still

We are like sheep without a shepherd
We don't know how to be alone
So we wander 'round this desert
And wind up following the wrong gods home
But the flock cries out for another
And they keep answering that bell
And one more starry-eyed messiah
Meets a violent farewell-
Learn to be still
Learn to be still

Now the flowers in your garden
They don't smell so sweet
Maybe you've forgotten
The heaven lying at your feet


There are so many contradictions
In all these messages we send
(We keep asking)
How do I get out of here?
Where do I fit in?
Though the world is torn and shaken
Even if your heart is breakin'
It's waiting for you to awaken
And someday you will-
Learn to be still
Learn to be still

You just keep on runnin'
Keep on runnin'

Citizen to Buddha: "Are you a God?" "No." "Are you a saint?" "No."

"What are you?" "I am awake."

Nice report, Steve.
