This morning I called Pranee. She had sent me an email stating that she was at home, had just finished watering her garden, and had a few other items to do there before going to the hotel. Last night she had sent me another email. In this one she stated that she had just come home from the hotel, it was 11PM, that the first things she wanted to do were talk with me and kiss me before having a shower and going to bed. I'm not even present and she talks like I am.

In our conversation this morning she mentioned that when she returned home from driving me to the airport that she had this feeling that something was missing in the house. She was already missing me, but also that my presence in the house felt comfortable and right. That I belonged there.

All relationships should be this way. A "knowing" deep inside that it's right.

Last September I wrote an entry that indicated that I was thinking of going to Asia. This was after I had seen the movie, Eat, Pray, Love, but also because at that time my sister-in-law had been reading the book. Since the author, Elizabeth Gilbert found love in Bali, Indonesia, I figured I might as well give it a try. Elizabeth had gone to Italy to Eat, to India to Pray, and finally, found Love in Indonesia.

Yesterday I toured the Island of Bintan with a private driver and tour guide. Ari was my driver and guide. He hadn't seen his wife and daughters in 3 days since he usually stays at the resort employee compound. We were driving near his place and so I said I didn't mind if he stopped. His daughters were exstatic to see their father.

During this drive I started thinking about my trip through Asia. It's been very much like Elizabeth Gilbert's story, but in an abridged sort of way. She had spent much more time in each place then I. The first few weeks of my trip I spent a lot of time praying. Not on purpose. I just visited numerous temples and churches and I would never miss saying a prayer of thanks for the life that I live. It didn't matter if it was to God, Jesus, Mary, Buddha or any other icon of prayer, they are all the same. They are all there to accomplish the same thing. Remind us that there's more to life then just "us".

Throughout all the praying there were the various incarnations of my "Dream Girl" that I would meet and be with. Each one of them were a reminder of what I was looking for. We usually forget what we are looking for. When the time and the place was right I did end up meeting my Dream Girl. I found Love, but not really. My whole life is about Love. I just found the right person to share my passion of traveling with and someone who truly understands me, as I do her.

This past week I have been a gluton. The food at this resort is awesome. I have been lazy laying by the pool and the beach. I have been living a life of luxury. I've Prayed, I've Loved, and I've Eaten!

But now the time has come to do some work. What that work is I do not know. Only time will tell. But what I do know is that the live recording of my life has come to an end. I have decided to make this blog a private one. I will still record the events that happen in my life as they occur here, but no one will have access to that recording until the time is right.

Why you may ask? All that I have to teach has been recorded here. The answer to living an amazing life is documented here. I did find my Dream Girl as predicted 3 years ago. The remaining forecasted items will happen. When? I do not know. Just that they will. My travels will continue, documented, but in a private forum. One day it will all be made public.

The blog will remain public until I decide to publish another entry. Then it will be unavailable for viewing until I change the setting back. Until then you'll have to read or re-read my other blogs. Parts 1 & 2 are the important ones that have the required information.

I am creating my life with my thoughts. This is a Law of the Universe. One of GOD's Laws, in whichever incarnation you believe he/she/it IS. I urge you to be aware of your thoughts and how they affect your life. My life is amazing because I never forget to Love everything and everybody and ensure all my thoughts are positive. Our thoughts plus the emotion that we attach to that thought is what we need to be aware of. Then go out and live that thought and love every bit of that experience. You never know where you may end up.

Think It! Feel It! Live It! Love It!

I Love You!
