Tibet, Lhasa, Buddha, The highest land in this world – A place where peace still within.
I have this Go-Tibet idea in mind for more than 8 years ago, I mean Go Tibet on the road, not fly to Lhasa directly. Idea got no value unless you take action on it, so last month, I am acting on it finally, before its too late to be wasted again.
Everything happen for a reason, I have my too. Though I have never though of this journey as a rescue of my life, as lot old story told us, it just happened. Don’t wanna write too much of this rescue story here in this post, maybe later I will write it in depth, or maybe never.
Its also not about normal travel share post, photo, route, no, not this type in this post. I am writing this post just to remind myself – life is short, life has too many unexpectedness, you can’t wait too much of so-called preparing, once you been touched, just open the door with a simple backpack, step your foot on your way, its not complicated at all.
Back to Tibet, why Tibet? Everyone has his own reason for a journey, the astonishing landscape, the highest snow mountain, the special farewell, the flavored milk tea, the kind Tibet people, the slow living style, the hard work against tough nature……for me, the initial reason is about Go, a simple movement only. Never set up any things I want to gain after this journey, but as a matter of fact, I gain a lot from this journey, what is that – I call it as Inner Peace.
Like most of the people, I work and live in big cities for most. Its okay but it’s not okay. We take a lot of things for granted, and most of them we even never think about it a little more, just because we have this kind of life as usual – or as a popular saying here in China – a family guy, I have my own thought about family, not a fixed house to stay, but a relationship which can cure the daily mental illness. I know this will be laughed by most people around me, been criticized for lot of time already, they said you should back to reality, back to normal world. Okay, everyone has its own right to choose life style, I respect yours, but I am acting in my style.
Back to Tibet again. How many years you haven’t seen the clean eyesight? I love small kid, just because they own the clean eyesight. And old men told me, kids with clean eyesight can see the things we can’t discover. I do believe in this, at least, when I see these eyes, I will get relaxed from normal feeling of body, it’s not mentally, totally physical reaction.
The things I want to told is, in Tibet, even old men, 80 years older, have bright piercing eyes . I do think that I can have my eye back to bright again if I can stay there for long time.
I can enjoy seeing my own special world, what a wonderful gift from Tibet.
