Carole Sainte-Marie, sainte_marie63@hotmail.com, from Montreal, Canada sent this week’s dream selection:

The Land of the Goddess

Going through my photo album is opening the gate to a different world. Feelings juxtapose themselves to memories, as I lose track of my present surroundings and enter a different dimension.

First, Kuta Beach and its wide-angled, endless sunsets. I arrived at this time of day when the pastel hues of the sky, becoming orange-red, served as backstage to a shadowed Melasti procession.

I travel through the succession of images, and my heart beats faster. Yes, I see and feel as if I was there: gamelan performances by virtuosos, dancers in trance, hot peanut merchants at a cremation, duck keepers, all those who touched my life with an eager smile, while living under the constant scrutiny of the outsider.

I still marvel at the intricate straw and flower or food decorations, from the smallest offering placed on the sidewalk by this old "ibu.” to the gigantic bebanten certainly appealing to the most gargantuan god.

I clearly hear the gong and feel it resonate right into my solar plexus, centering this part of me that feels connected to both earth and the invisible.

Only in a place touched by a Goddess can men move and dance with such grace, wear a flower over their ear and yet look so serene and dignified in their sarong.

Balinese are rich with their way of life and their works of art, of which terraced rice paddies are an extension.

Bedugul, with its tallest meru touching the clouds, has a special place in my heart. To sojourn in Bali, so harmonious and beautiful, is an opportunity for spirituality. Hence, Balinese are not the only souls wanting to reincarnate in this residence of gods . . .

I return from my reverie and gently close my album, realizing that a lotus flower ornates its cover . . .
