A few Years ago I took my good friend, Lea Wei, to visit my hometown. Sharing memories of my hometown with her was heartwarming for me. It was also a profound experience for her and I and led us to have an epiphany. The shift in my life’s outlook is so important that I feel compelled to share it with all my friends. This is a bit of a long story, and you might be thinking about skipping to the bottom, but PLEASE keep reading! Because if I’m right, many of you will connect with my words and begin to have your own awakening. Just maybe, you too will share my new feeling of curiosity and a powerful spirit of wonder growing within your heart and mind.
To understand where I am now, you must first understand where I began. You might already know that I’m a Henan girl, but did you know my hometown is Tagou? If you don’t know where that is, it’s the tiny village that sits directly at the gates of the Shaolin Temple. That’s right, I’m one of the very few people born directly to Shaolin Culture, although I never considered what a unique experience growing up Shaolin actually was. To me, that was just my childhood, it was just life.
Maybe right now you’re thinking, “Wow! I didn’t know you knew Kung Fu WeiWei?” That thought makes me giggle, because no, I don’t know fighting. However, the Powerful Spirit of Kung Fu… The Peace of Mind that the Zen Masters hold… The Durability of the Mountains… The Stability of the yellowing leaves in Autumn and the greening of the forest in Spring… ALL THAT flows thru my veins as naturally as the clean, mountain water brook flows down into my little hometown.
In fact, these things are so natural to Inme I didn’t realize that other people didn’t feel them as I did. It wasn’t until I took Lea around, and share with her my thinking, that she began to experience these things as well. When she expressed what a profound and moving experience it was for her, I was deeply touched. Suddenly I felt an obligation to share my life’s experience, not just with her, but with others who might need this… This… I don’t even know what to call it.
This sense of wellbeing. This sense of belonging. Perhaps I should just call it, “This moment in time.” A moment where the frantic motion of life slows so much that you can put your finger into the stream of time and watch it’s path bend and change with the trace of your hand by something deep inside??? I am. I’m not sure of another way to explain what I feel, maybe you feel something you can’t quite put into words either. Maybe I would describe it as just the shadow of an echo. Far at the back of my mind… When you close your eyes do you hear it too? Something has brought me to this moment… Think about this carefully… Has it brought you too? movedDo you feel it??? I do. Are you moved by something deep inside??? I am. I’m not sure of another way to explain what I feel, maybe you feel something you can’t quite put into words either. Maybe I would describe it as just the shadow of an echo. Far at the back of my mind… When you close your eyes do you hear it too? Something has brought me to this moment… Think about this carefully… Has it brought you too?
