The Ubud vibe has certainly changed. Maybe it’s time was up. Destiny, Karma and that entire hippy stuff?
Have the Balifornians, Ubudians and all those old, Eat, Don’t Pay, My Shit Don’t Stink lot, decided to move out? Looking hard, searching far, for a brighter greener drier patch. Escaping endless torrential rain, leaving behind a totally tapped out Om energy depleted environment. Are they packing up their crates of crystals, tucking their Yoni (source of all life) in tight, and rolling up their collective meditation cushions and yoga mats? Are they heading to softer greener energies where equilibrium may be mined in full moon cycles? There are certainly enough non-members of the daily detox, those non-believers of the need to clean up and in and around my unclean unsavoury insides brigade, who do believe the season of love and anal bleaching has passed. Unfortunately it appears that no one has done an in-depth out depth or any depth study, so findings and conclusions are virtually in the cloud at this time.
Or could it be that Ubud is simply moving on and re-balancing? Maybe moving forward to a more reflective past? And maybe just maybe that's not such a bad happening. Maybe just simply taking a breath to reassess.
Gunung Agung, that majestic imposing scary detoxes your insides for free super volcano, certainly cannot be discounted when it comes to reading the vibe. The fallout, apart from shitting oneself when the reality becomes reality, has certainly dampened down spirts and awakened a whole lot more on an Island full of all that ethereal energy. If, and again there’s no firm data yet, Agung has indeed vaporized the vibe, then its warm up performance is shockingly impressive indeed.
Vibe really is what Bali feeds on. Vaping on ash under the threat of vaporization could be a factor in people moving out of the area possibly affected and infected. Those who feel they are connected to the earth, usually feel how the vibe is blowing. Like walking barometers they will not stay where winds of change are in process.
Especially if that air is toxic, naturally or not.
Observing whats real is becoming increasingly difficult. This site is my view, my perception and my commentary on what I believe to be real, from my own unique position.
