Day 2~ May 2nd~ Cambodia

beautiful people

Every single place I have been to around the world has shown me that the local people are the tarot of that place. They are the ones who process its energies, who live with the angels of that land and who give expression to its unseen worlds.

Whatever mystery and beauty radiates out of Cambodia is clearly seen twinkling in the eyes of its people, especially the children. It is their warm smiles that stay with you and make you dream of going back. Yes, it is a beauty that goes much beyond the physical surface, and their bright eyes are just gateways to a whole other world awaiting to be discovered.

Day Two Hundred Sixty Eight, October 17, 2011

luck and chinese fortune sticks

In almost every culture in the history of the human race, you find appearances of links to the esoteric worlds. From the Tarot of Ancient Egypt, to high priests, fortune tellers, oracles, the research of astrology, numerology and the list goes on and on down to religious beliefs and different faiths around the globe.

At different times, humans ask questions and look for answers in the unseen worlds rather than the seen. This aspect of life continues to tickle the interest of Lea as she asks her daily “beyond the beyond” questions.
