Hi everyone! Lotus Flower here. Im quite new here still. I only made my first post two weeks ago. I'm on a journey of self discovery at the moment. But thought maybe it would be nice to talk about something else. hopefully this will be an opportunity to get to know some of you a little more. And maybe you can do some self-exploration through this thread too! So here we go...
As a troubled teen, i sought out counseling. One thing that has always stuck with me ever since. My counsellor once asked me, when i was feeling stressed, to seek out a special place in my mind. one that made me feel at peace. I chose the 'bamboo forest' a scene from the film 'the house of flying daggers'. Such a beautiful film. I could just imagine being in that place, and suddenly feel a wave of calm and tranquility slip over me. i managed to find a place near by where i live that reminded me of it. i went there alot to practice tai chi too. Going to see where they shot that scene is definitely on my bucket list.
So what I'm asking is. If you had to chose a special place. A place of calm, or of peace, a place of comfort, or a place of joy, one where you feel truly free. Where would that place be? and why? It could be a scene from a film, or something in a book you love. It could be something quite sweet and sentimental, like being held in the embrace of someone you love . It could be absolutely anything.
Please bear in mind I'm not asking for specific real life locations really, that would be a little creepy! But, just give it some thought. I look forward to hearing from you all soon.
