Spring is coming!

20 Minute Massage – $1.50

Something I love about Chinese airports and train stations is the massage chairs. Usually costs between 10rmb to 15rmb ($1.50 – $2.00) for 15 to 30 minutes. These are $1.50 for 20 minutes. Makes for a lively, doable treat when you have a 4 hour layover and 48hours of no sleep!

Door Blessings

Everyone is hanging up door signs asking for good things in the coming year. They remain up until next year’s festival. Ours says ‘Blessings’!๐Ÿ˜‚What would yours ask for?

The Heart that Flowers

#Lotus Blossoming in the #Fall. According to legend, Buddha once told a story: Like the #waterlily, there are three kinds of people in the world.

The first are those who long to bloom but become swallowed in the filthy circumstances that surround them. They never rise above the mud.

The second are those who struggle for a time – reaching for the Sun that is just beyond their fingertips. But eventually they surrender to their own weaknesses. They rise above the mud but never above the water.

The last are the blooming lilies. Those are the ones that rose above the world’s destructive influences and battled their own hearts and minds until finally they grew. Out of the mud, above the water. They bloom, revealing to all the glorious potential that always resided inside.
.
We are all a blooming lily – I hope that you have risen to show your flowering heart to the world!

Party of my Dreams!
