Balinese culture has a deep connection to the spirit world and it is evident as soon as you arrive onto this sacred island. Fragrant incense wafting through the air, ornate temples at almost every turn, black and white checkered cloth wrapped around deities and trees, representing yin and yang, the force of good and evil in all of us.
For outsiders to the Balinese Hindu customs, the rituals and practices are very fascinating and mysterious. However, the warm and hospitable Balinese people have welcomed tourists to learn about their way of life for many decades. Gaining an understanding of this rich culture and faith can sometimes incite a curiosity for us to look into our own spirituality.
It is said that we are all spirits having a human experience. Sometimes in our lives when the daily routines seem to overshadow our inner selves, we forget this. One way to rejuvenate your spirit is to immerse yourself into a new experience and be in the present moment. There are many destinations on this enchanted island filled with picturesque landscapes reconnect with nature and discover the stories behind these sites of great significance. Wherever in the world we are from, wherever in the world we go, no matter how different we appear to be on the outside, we are all connected in this human experience.
