The most beautiful part of exploring nature is healing yourself from all the greed madness of modernity.
I walk into my old memories filled with blessings and gratitude. I discovered a lot about gardening and made use of the many resources of infinite nature.
This article begins with a photo of me holding Guava fruits that are easy to find in Indonesia. That was my activity to harvest Guava fruits from a small forest.
Free fruit from nature? Say yes to wild fruit! I found a guava tree that has a lot of ripe fruit.
I was very excited to pick the ripe guava fruit directly from the tree. Looks very fresh and delicious!
EXPLORING, UNDERSTANDING, AND HEALING YOURSELF
The most beautiful part of exploring nature is healing yourself from all the greed madness of modernity. We not only understand about the deepest part of ourselves, but we heal the wound from the scratches of such high desire, only with the fresh air of simplicity.
We walk deeper and deeper on the path of life. We will find simplicity. About meaningful wild plants, creating happiness on the dining table.
Then we learn to transfer the blessings of nature in our gardens, to our loved ones. Every morning we will see the dew drops on the plants. It is like universal compassion treating human imperfection.
We heal ourselves as well as beautify ourselves. For example, if there is constipation, I will drink "Melinjau leaf tea", a recipe passed down from my mother.
To blacken and smooth the hair of my Asian descent, there is an "Urang-Aring plant" which has always succeeded in becoming the people's hair care recipe here.
Or about how the turmeric herb treats my menstrual cramps. It became my life-saving drink.
This medicinal turmeric drink has a delicious and fresh taste. Because of the combination of tamarind and palm sugar. It feels like not taking medicine.
HEATING AND ENTERTAINING YOURSELF
When the earth embraces us with the lonely cold, we know that the earth also prepares a warm blanket with various ingredients grown from the chest of the earth.
We will be warm in the arms of the earth, like ginger that warms our souls, spices up feelings of loneliness into more meaningful mindfulness.
This drink is worth a try for your drink list at night or on a rainy day to warm you up.
Then when we wake up feeling bored and don't want to step outside the house to struggle.
We look around, what can be served to our bodies that need food but actually our souls need it the most.
I have served oats with natural coloring from Butterfly Pea Flowers.
Then, what if we want to go back to childhood who didn't want to worry about anything? We enjoy sweets while laughing and looking up at the sky. We want to be the best version of ourselves, not the best version of the person we say we are.
I serve banana ice cream which brings you moments of happiness and moments without worries.
EARTHY FRAGRANCE THAT TREATS Greed
Herbs greet your sense of smell happily. From gardens that teach you blissful simplicity.
The fragrance of basil that imagines us about Thai Green Curry or Pesto Basil and the jar of longing that we preserve to survive in the countryside.
Have we been grateful today for many blessings that we might have missed?
