My Experience…In Paradise✌️❤️

boat on small island in Thailand

I like to keep you on your toes with this blog…have you not knowing what topic is coming next…or why.

Things are just so boring when they become mundane…the same…every single time.

I believe the majority of anything I’ve ever written on here…represents a true state of my human consciousness.

I don’t write it…if I don’t have experience in it…if…I haven’t seen…thought or felt it in some kind of way.

There are no gimmicks…no underhanded agendas…nor…overzealous group identities to be peddled with these words.

I’m Lee…doing me…whilst…respecting whatever you yourself wants to do in return.

After the interest taken in my Vienna trip…and…the fact I don’t have all the pics yet…it…seems only right to bring you on a journey into paradise instead.

I said in the Viennese post…that…I experience extreme difficulty when taking time off from chasing my goals.

A week away leaves me turkeying and fiending…like an addict….which…many can find difficult about my personality.

You’ll see from the 2019 videos and installments why I’m so addicted!

3 years ago though…I went on a crazy trip…a journey…where…I completely switched off.

Probably about 2 months worth of travelling…crammed into 21 days…seriously.

Jibbed…got about…and mooched across the most untouched natural gems of Indonesia.

I guess…I…really needed to escape the insane amount of modern day pigeon holing…sub-sectioning…categorising…hysteria…and…psychological mind games being played within this new found…super connected world.

Needed to go back to basics for a few weeks…to remember what it felt like to rely on being at ease and alignment with Mother Nature.

Found myself on a pretty much deserted paradise island…which gave me the time…and the direction needed to ponder.

The beauty of a deserted paradise island…the type everybody dreams of going to…if you haven’t already been to one…is…that everything that glitters…isn’t gold.

One of the most stunning places I could ever describe to you…a pleasure to have been a part of it…honestly…although…I’m a realest…nonetheless.

You have a lot of time to think…but…think…in a way you never get the pleasure of being able to do…in your normal…day to day…usual surroundings.

It offers a silence…and a retrospective thought process…that is steeped in emotion and clarity.

Once you finally reach paradise…if you’re not the type of person who is easily blinded by the lights…you…kind of realise…no matter the beauty…no matter the wonder…the awe…eloquence or marvel…still…nothing…is ever going to be perfect…never could be.

I personally think that’s where the true definitive beauty is found…perpetually…eternally…within itself.

It brings smiles and joy…when you truly experience it…feel it…see it.

If you ever have…you’ll know exactly what I mean.

Paradise is a man/woman made concept…an…unrealistic entity that doesn’t exist tangibly…but more as a manifestation of the mind.

Real paradise is found within the acceptance and identification of that statement…I truly believe.

We can only perceive our own minds perception…meaning…we create the vision of our own environments…wherever they may be.

Our paradise or hell hole…can be anywhere we choose.

It’s all in the connection between mind body and surroundings.

I’ve travelled a great deal of the globe…far and wide…but…the want to reiterate these sentiments…had never hit me in that way before…ever.

I’m on this flipping island…slap bang in the middle of the ocean…on it’s own…only accessible by catching 2 boats…1 of them a journey that at every point could easily kill you😂👊👍

There’s no cars…no motor bikes…no police…barely any electricity…and very few people inhabiting it.

I sat on the edge of existence…all alone…at 5 am…staring out at the vastness of living…in my “Spot”…and felt…what it felt…to truly feel alive.

I’ve felt it before…many times…felt it often…feel it often…in many different places…in many different ways…for…many different reasons.

In a consensus between myself and the natural world…Indonesia…reiterated to me that…waking up with the ability to experience the day…would always be above all else…as….the all else wouldn’t have the pleasure of being there without it.

Nothing could ever compare to being in the present…no matter where we are.

That’s the real paradise…right there…learning how to deal and address the present…for a prosperous next day…no matter what gets tossed in the way!

It’s about…being as one…in unison…with the rhythm of the pulse of reality.

Connected into the plug socket of life with absolutely no surge protection…fuck it!

Our natural world isn’t a part of us…we’re…a part of it.

The old saying…”Home is where the heart is” I feel is very fitting.

As much as I struggle to take time away at this point on my path…travelling the world…getting of the beaten…conventional path…is one of the best educations a human being can ever get.

We’ll all only ever be students of this game no matter how far we take it.

Gili Meno…North Lombok…West Nusa Tenggara…offered some of the most elegantly sublime and stirring scenery…I’ve ever had the pleasure of being party to.

Can still smell the air…hear the waves…when I close my eyes and think about it.

Was a surreal feeling to be there…especially after having just left a rain forest days before…with the week prior to that…still being in my home town of Manchester, England.

It’s great to reflect on…as life has changed in so many ways since then.

My overall message to fade out with…is that…things do change…people rearrange…nonetheless…the show always goes on…until it doesn’t.

Smile….laugh…dance…sing…frolic…and…find your paradise…anywhere…everywhere!

Have the best day ever my friends✌️❤️

(This shows the sun rising up and radiating across the beach…with a little peak of what the island is like once it gets going. I think the waves and imagery are therapeutic!)

(Jumped on a dodddgy push bike one handed and went renegade riding off the beaten track…in the heart of the island)

  1. I really enjoyed reading this. Bali is at the top of my list of places to explore and now I feel re-inspired to go. You are right. Paradise is a state of mind and one that we must revisit often.

    I have been noticing it a lot lately –that need to unplug and it is challenging when you run a business because you run the show. I have always dreamed about working from home and having flexibility in my schedule and this year we made that dream come true.

    I do love it, but I have been noticing that it is more important than ever to get out and explore the world especially since work is now at home.

    Really enjoyed your videos too!

    1. Glad I could bring you some enjoyment.

      Hope you’ve had an amazing new year!

      Haha I’m going to drop some Bali videos next 😂👌

      The other thing is…when you own your own business…the people in employment around you struggle to understand your life and perspective.

      People can argue that fact but it is what it is. In any typical social group…the self employed are usually the minority…so…most end up having to live life the same way as an employed person does…never factoring in…It’s the polar opposite life and mindset.

      It’s amazing you have accomplished that…and I’m proud of you!

      You’ll know better than most that even that doesn’t allow you to switch off 😂😂👊

      It’s the path we’ve chosen. You’re right.when you own your own business you don’t switch off…you can’t.

      When you say you run the show…I…don’t think a lot of people realise in that type of position…you have to utilise your skill set and talents…while…running a business…staying a float…being a receptionist…an organiser…a HR dept…complaint handler…customer service handler…finance director…sales director…logistics manager…all the while you’re chasing business for the next week 😂

      There’s a reason 99% of people work for others…and why most businesses fail.

      I think your path is amazing and it’s a pleasure to call you a friend.

      It is important to go see the world.

      I feel though in this society it’s harder. I’ll give you an example.

      I’m in love with my journey. I can wake up…go to work…come home and repeat. Do nothing else for a whole year and I’m SO happy…so content.

      It’s can be very difficult to get many others to understand that I don’t need to be doing “Exciting” things every second of the day because I find waking up so exciting.

      It is nice to get away…but I feel too many people I encounter are more obsessed with the going away and seeing the world…rather than putting the sacrifice in to be in the position in the first place.

      Not all by any means…but an overwhelming amount of People seem to want it without having to work their arses off for it.

      This brainwashed obsessed snapchat Instagram world…the majority seem to just expect it all…without having to bust their arses for it.

      The only reason I’m able to take trip like that is because I bust my arse…like you do.

      Since that time…I’ve felt like taking time off wasn’t necessary…as…my paradise is all around me.

      I will have another trip planned…you never know…i’m Feelimg the scenery where you are at! Could wake up one day and find me two stepping in your village 😂😂👊👍

      As always Alana it is a pleasure…and enjoyed hearing your POV.

      You inspire me to be a better man…and…never stop being you girl🔥

      Thanks for showing love…and thanks for being an inspiration. I know you will succeed in your business beyond your wildest dreams…because u deserve it.

      You have the perfect heart and mind ✌️❤️

      1. Awww thank you Lee. It means so much to me that you take the time to chat and I love that we can share our pov with each other.

        I couldn’t have said it better myself. There is a lot of societal pressure to “fit in” and follow the conventional path of 4 yrs of university (then maybe grad school for more credentials to be more employable), find a “steady” job (which is mostly an illusion, meet the one, get married, have kids, and live ever after…

        I do admire the people who take that path. It takes dedication, patience, and persistence to stick with it and it is special to bring a family into the world especially during these times. Sometimes it is hard not to have a little fomo especially being a woman in the early 30’s, but I love this life.

        You’re right, I no longer feel like I have to get away because everyday feels like paradise. It wasn’t easy to get here and I don’t think I will ever feel like I have arrived, but that is what makes it fun. You are always striving to be better, figuring out what works and what doesn’t and that makes it so rewarding.

        We get a lot of criticism from friends and family and people asking “when are you going to get a real job.” Like you said, it is hard for people to understand because few put in the work to make the dream come true. It helps to talk and connect with like-minded people who understand what it takes to live a more free lifestyle.

        This place really is amazing and a nice place to relax and unplug. It is funny you mentioned it because we still get job offers and sometimes we look into the ones that look interesting. My partner got an offer right there in Manchester a few weeks ago and it made me think of you. It looks like a beautiful city and someday I will have to visit it, but I saw the temperatures and decided that I am content here in the tropics.

        You inspire me to be my best, Lee. Keep being you!

        Let’s live our best lives today and always!

        ❤ Alana
