Today I spent some quality time in under grown caverns and caves of Wat Tham Pha Chom, Wiang Phang Kham in Mae Sai. I thought of myself as (Indiana Jones) well more like Thailand Drew and the Temple of Meditation.
The past couple days I’ve been venturing around the area to seek out some peaceful places to write, and log my journey as well as contemplate where to go next. Thailand in general has been a pivotal point in my world travels. Pivotal in a sense that I have been contemplating returning home to see the people that love me and I them more now than ever before. I love traveling however I think it comes with balance to really enjoy it most. So I’ve been seeking to open my meditation time more to really seek happiness. Sometimes its a battle, as we all humans understand, if its not one thing its another, balancing life can be tricky sometimes even when your living out of a backpack traveling the world.
I walked the premises looking to see if I could stay here maybe a couple days and meditate with the monks, but I wasn’t able to find anyone that spoke a lick of English. Afterwards I wandered down a path and into some caves. CAVES? Yup domesticated caves to say it best. They have now installed Buddha’s and small candle lit temples. It was surreal and a great experience to sit most of the day in meditation.
