Wednesday, October 18, 2020: Day 22 - The 30 Day Bali Silent Retreat Challenge Review
Another very lucky day! The morning meditation woke us up, and then Komang went for her morning meditation and I started writing, after having a shower and putting new oil and powder on. I checked my depot and realized the euphoria at the stock market, and the value of my depot cracked the 1,000,000 Euros. I was happy, but I expected a correction within this week. The boost from the announcement of 3 vaccines was just too steep, to be sustainable. The long-term trend was clearly up, but within the next few days, I expected a 10% correction. So, I put some sell orders, to be prepared to buy back cheaper in some days.
Then we enjoyed breakfast while having a chat with Dian. She is a golden, happy soul, even if her business is quiet at the moment. We were her only guests. And she had still 3 other people working on the property to maintain the beautiful garden.
Soon, it was time to say goodbye and thank you for the pleasant stay. We made our way to the notary to pick up the final document. And then we were on our way toward Penebel. We stopped at Warung Pocok at the corner of a bride along the way up the mountain range. Then we stopped in Bedugul for some strawberries and fruits. And for lunchtime, we arrived at the Bali Silent Retreat, where we had a salad and some cake and cookies, which we took to my room. We enjoyed them with coffee, cacao, and cinnamon while enjoying the view from the balcony.
I took a shower. After removing the powder, I saw, that my skin irritations got a little better, but still they were not gone. So, Komang spoiled me again, with some medicament she bought for me in the pharmacy. Then we laid down and relaxed together, before she had to go back to Denpasar, to teach her yoga class at Soham Center. When I brought her to the scooter, for a long bye-bye kiss, I collected some flowers for the eye healing tea. I prepared the tea, and then, I relaxed the afternoon on my bed until it was time for dinner.
And once again, thinking about the euphoria at the stock market this ironic thought came into my mind: "It is so hard to enjoy life in Bali."
I opened the email with the trademark infringement and violation of the Unfair Competition Act again. And I checked my old emails because I went through a similar case once before. I remembered, that one of the lawyers offered a very cheap price. I found her email address again and forwarded her the case.
During dinner, I picked the book: Storytelling and read one chapter in it, until it got too dark to keep on reading. Once again, I realized an improvement in my ability to focus on short distances. And I felt that thinking became more and more effortless, due to the better signal quality from my eyes.
After dinner, I kept on relaxing in my room until the fire started in the firehouse. I settled down at the hammock and listened to Kurt Tepperwein until the fire was almost finished. Then I went to bed, checked the euphoria at the stock market, and placed some more sell orders. Did my healing meditation and fell asleep. But this night, I woke up a lot of times, and my thoughts kept wandering. Finally, I chose to listen to "Living Yoga" again, after which I fell asleep.
