Off to East Malaysia

Dear Friends,
i was absent from blogging for past few days. this is because i am in east malaysia, travellng. This part of Malaysia, also called Borneo is very beautiful with plenty of green forest, mountains, springs, wild life. people here are so friendly.

i came with a friend of mine and we had some very interesting experiences. God willing once i come back to Singapore, i will try to share them with you. they are experiences of unexpected hospitality and closeness of human affections. the places i am visiting doesn't have much internet facilities. so not sure when can i access next.

while hiking in the deep forests and following the mountain trails, i was listening to a few of the sufi lecture audio. the beautiful landscape and silence of the nature was a marvelous place to absorb the beautiful talks. i will try to share few of the thoughts that came across me while walking, listening and meditating on the talks.

Also at times i was listening to this song 'Angels' by Sarah McLachlan again and again. let me share the lyrics with you and the music video. i do love it very much. at times in those settings, few of the words the song carried really meant a lot.

Spend all your time waiting for that second chance
For the break that will make it OK
There's always some reason to feel not good enough
And it's hard at the end of the day

I need some distraction or a beautiful release
Memories seep from my veins
Let me be empty and weightless
and maybe I'll find some peace tonight

In the arms of the Angel far away from here
From this dark, cold hotel room,
and the endlessness that you fear
You are pulled from the wreckage of your silent reverie
You're in the arms of the Angel;
may you find some comfort here

So tired of the straight line,
and everywhere you turn
There's vultures and thieves at your back
The storm keeps on twisting,
you keep on building the lies
That you make up for all that you lack

It don't make no difference, escaping one last time
It's easier to believe
In this sweet madness, oh this glorious sadness
That brings me to my knees

In the arms of the Angel far away from here
From this dark, cold hotel room,
and the endlessness that you fear
You are pulled from the wreckage of your silent reverie

In the arms of the Angel;
may you find some comfort here
You're in the arms of the Angel;
may you find some comfort here

You can watch and listen to this music here. (can't find the one from the movie, City of Angels)
