Seeing Beyond

I wanted to get away from all the gory news from last week, so we set out on a beautiful trip to the Blue Mountains on Sunday...yes for the umpteenth time. I never get sick of scenic places, mainly mountains, rivers, beaches and the bush. On the way we stopped at this beautiful little church in Mulgoa (a Schoenstatt shrine- pic1). It's located in a beautiful isolated place and the peace I get from being there is just inexpressible. This church has been one of my favorites and we visit it whenever we can. After some silent moments in the church followed by a nice warm brekky, we were about to drive to the Blue Mountains when I witnessed something rather tragic. A little orange caterpillar on the ground was being savagely attacked by a big mob of black-ants. The caterpillar was alive but since the ants were too powerful and there were many of them attacking it, it couldn't do anything but wriggle it's body helplessly. I immediately went to the rescue. I picked up a dried leaf and scared the ants away (believe me it took some time to chase the greedy team away!). And then I moved the poor baby on to the leaf and put it up on a nice green shrub. It then fell down...I picked it up again and left it on the shrub. This time it could grab hold of some leaves and stay properly. I was as happy as I could be...so I clicked a shot of the caterpillar I saved that day (pic2). Have a look at the dude...now isnt he a handsome bloke? May you live happily ever after matey!

After the huge rescue operation :), we all set off to the mountains. There is a Buddhist monastery (a place where Buddhist monks live and meditate located in a forest) near the Blue Mountains. We went there first cos this is also another favorite place of our's. The silence, the trees, the little path to the meditation spots in the forest (pic3) , the bush, the birds chirping, the orange robe-clad monk, the shrine, the wild flowers (pic4)...it was a world away from the world. I felt total bliss. After spending some time praying for the lives lost and thinking of positive thoughts, we left the monastery (with great hesitation ofcourse) to a place called the Wentworth Falls. It is a beautiful spot with a view of the Mountains and a lovely waterfall at the bottom of it. The walk to the Princess Rock view was about 20mins and it was through a beautiful dense forest (pic5). The view from there was just amazing! I couldnt capture the magnitude of it through my mobile phone camera so this is the best I could do (pics 6 and 7). I know the waterfall isn't visible in pic7 but hey atleast I tried - hope you can spot it. Then we walked back to th
e picnic area and had lunch, chatted a little and got back on the road around 3pm. The worst time to be on the highway. Traffic was awful...saw a terrible accident on the way...the car was a total write-off. I hope the driver and any passengers are safe.

Came home and thought this to myself...there are so many things in this world to see...to do...to find joy in. But in the given period of our lives, we can only see and do so much. We all leave this world without seeing all of it...so many leave without even taking a glimpse of it. But what really matters is grasping the beauty in every little thing you see and experience, learning from it and applying it to you
r life for the well-being of yourself and others. Then you'd have 'seen' and 'done' more than any globe-trotter has ever seen and done.

Tomorrow is
ANZAC Day (click on the link to read more on it) so it's a public holiday over here. Australia has always stood for peace, harmony and goodwill, because that's what the great ANZACS of this country achieved for their land many many years ago. In the wake of this very special day in Aus, lets remember all the precious lives that were sacrificed in wars all over the world. Lest We Forget. Today's song is "I still call Australia home" written by Peter Allen, and the video is a one-time Qantas ad performed by beautiful kids with sceneries from around the world. Enjoy!

Nice

Jewel Rays said...

Keshi that was such a beautiful post. Serene and pretty overwhelming. What a great plan to go away to visit the blue mountains that turned out to be such a blessing for you guys. I love this post lots and especially ya experience with the orange caterpillar. Really beautiful sweets. Such a beautiful heart. I wonder if i would even do what u did. i would probably leave it there or think that the caterpillar is probably dead. u gave it a chance to develope beautiful wings to spread. :)

A really beautiful post and a good time out from the chaos of the world around.

*Hugs*

~Jewel :)

Menchie said...

Keshi,
How lucky you went to those beautiful places. now I am sorry we didn't get to go to the Blue Mountains on the two visits to Sydney that we made. we kept postponing and postponing.

Now it's definitely going to be in the itinerary when I next visit ...probly in 2009. :P

Aditi said...

ooh the last 2 shots are abso0lutely gorgeous.. did i see 2 watrfalls there?
good job wiht the caterpillar.. =)

Drama Div@ said...

Lisa Francisco said...

Hi Chica!

Thanks for stopping by! The girl in the pic is the same girl singing on the video on my blog. Her name is Imogen Heap.

Beautiful pictures. I wish that I have seen things like this in my life. But I sincerely hope that my life's eyes will see the many corners of this world.

The closest I've been to see anything like this is when I went to the Bahamas a few years ago. It was beautiful. I even swam with dolphins!

Reading your post makes me that much more determined to achieve my dreams...for it's when I fly, will I have seen what the world has to offer me and what I have to offer to the world.

Lisa

Blessed said...

Just beautiful Miss Keshi--the words, the pics and so your post reminded me of a favorite quote written by Anne Frank and now I will share:

"The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then one feels that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature. I firmly believe tht nature bings sloace in all troubles"

Many blessings!
and a big ole {{{{{HUG}}}}}

Jay said...

You saved that catapiller, but what about those ants? Now they may go hungry. They may not be able to fee their young? ;-)

I was watching Planet Earth on Discovery and a bunch of river otters held off a HUGE crocodile who was trying to catch one of them for a nice snack. There is strength in numbers.

Love the pics. Looks like a very beautiful and peaceful place.

deepsat said...

Shionge said...

Aiya..yayya....reading this is like a walk down memory for me Keshi as I remembered back in 1989, I went on a one-day tour to the Blue Mountain as June was working then.

I met a girl from NZ and she was my tourmate for the day :D

For those who died...Lest we forget.

Happy Anzac Day Keshi :)

Die Muräne said...

Oh how nice!! I could spend a few days in the Blue Mountains when I was in Sydney. For bushwalking and to relax. I loved it so much.
Really lovely pictures. You can feel the power of this nature in them ;)

Aidan said...

I am yet to go into the blue mountains (oh the shame) There are meant to be some awesome hikes up there, its just finding some tiem to get away from it all...

Kudos on rescuing the caterpillar i am sure it will go on to live a long and prosperous life..

"But what really matters is grasping the beauty in every little thing you see and experience, learning from it and applying it to your life for the well-being of yourself and others." got it in one Keshi... Simple beauty, thats all it takes to be happy...

Cazzie!!! said...

Keshi, thanks for your comment on my Anzac Post too. Loved these pictures, Mia did her big goo goo eyes upon seeing the caterpillar.

Yashita said...

you know? I don't think I ever told you, but your writing has this wonderful quality...I don't know...easy to read....the words just seem to flow:)

and yea...hate to say this, but right now am damn jealous :( we can't take such holidays:( at least there are no such beautiful vacation spots nearby:(

Vest said...

Keshi,the beautiful pearl with the soul of a saint.
A second visit anywhere is not usually as rewarding as the first.
But why ask me have I visited the Blue Mountains more times than I can remember, try visiting during different seasons for a different perspective.

Just living is not enough.....
One must have sunshine,
freedom and a little flower.

Or sometimes a caterpillar.... 'Softy'

david santos said...

Very nice post, Keshi! Thank you.

Helen said...

Hi Keshi, Beautiful space, and welcome headspace reprieve, I am sure.
The caterpillar--I suppose this is why humans should not achieve total universe control, we would not have the wisdom to believe that mercy means sometimes letting the ugly and fierce conquer to feed their own, and to sometimes allow pretty girls to come by to rescue fuzzy orange caterpillars. It seems we humans are one extreme or the other, we do not balance with prudence and restraint.

Aaah well, I also believe that we are placed where we are to operate as we judiciously see fit...Had it been the ant's day, maybe a vile little bully would have been placed there to crush the caterpillar and ease the ant's difficulty. Who knows...you're lovely, though, and operate from a pure heart.

DJ said...

good pics...
looks like someone had a really nice time...
even i plan to visit australia some day....have heard its too beautiful...

take care..

I love the pics!! Its so smoothing... Even i'm not there, somehow, i can 'feel' it.. Mmm... So good..

I wish i could go to these place as many times as u do.. But Singapore is really kinda tiny & has limited resources.. Haiz..

U saved the caterpillar! Heroine! HaHa.. U know, there is this story abt a guy whom knew he was gonna die the next day managed to survived many more years. He saved lots of drowning ants also by using a leaf & each ant he saved, gave him another year to live on to see this beautiful world. :)

Keshi - haven't been over here in a while - have missed it. Your pictures are fabulous - that last shot of the deep waterfall canyon is awesome. Makes me want to go there myself.

My cousin (from Sydney) is always telling me about her trips to the Blue Mountains, but she's never got around to showing me any photos. As beautiful as she has been describing. Yet another reason to come visit, sooner rather than later!

Wonderful words on seeing the beauty. :-)
