Around 10 000 day of my life...

Today is Thursday, 10 of July. Beginning of fourth month of Evs project in Indonesia.

Around 10 000 day of my life. Eleventh morning of Ramadhan. I sit in coffee shop, in second in size city of Java, most crowded island in the world perhaps. Bandung wake up me every morning with fresh air, and noise of millions Indonesian citizens starting their life once again. After night spend in company of bats and squirrels I wash my face, and read email from Aga - coordinator from Spain. Yes, maybe this is that morning when I should do some small summary of my time in here.

Every creature that feels, is going to one direction. To love and freedom. One think that is different is taken path, it depends of many circumstances, many laws. When i look on this part of Asia, on Indonesian archipelago, differences from place that I born are almost impossible to describe. But still people how hopes, still people need to love and to be loved. Smiles, touch, good words are needed everywhere. This particular states are necessary all over the world. Peace and understanding in relations, trust and hospitability are so universal goods in relations, that I think there is no questions about it. Everything else need to be translated, thru culture, thru languages , thru life styles.

Who is volunteer in this beautiful country? What means to be volunteer in here?

First of all is not popular to do voluntary service in places that need of money, and passion for collect them is so strong like in Indonesia. Somehow countries in begging of capitalism system produce this strong movement of consumption. Hunger without end. People are hungry for "rich" in material ways life's. Media, big companies, sometimes culture supports this way of thinking strongly. In here, situation is so young in this topic, that alternative have no enough power yet to bring riot and perform change. To be volunteer in here is first of all to life in not so popular life style. Working for free?? Are you crazy??

On other hand to be volunteer from choice is indeed to make riot. Is to show example that is possible to care, possible to bring change. Possible to be unique, to have own way of understanding. I meet a lot volunteers from Indonesia, most of them have appetite for knowledge, for experiences. They follow this universal need to be accepted, and to accept. Sometimes their mind calls it in different ways, but as I wrote before only emotions are universal, concepts have to be translated.

Indonesia have many problems, from corruption on every level of life. Rotten ways of thinking, big generation jumps, overpopulation, pollution, cultural conflicts, lack of education, censorship of media, fanatic religion and natural disasters danger, to lack of possibilities and strong attack of hegemonic asian countries in economic and political dimensions. Indonesia is in difficult moment .But after every storm, sunshine brings warm feeling on cold skin.

I wake up in evening with strong feeling that I'm grateful for my beautiful life, that every minute, every breath is unique, and have value of most important moment. I appreciate all experiences that I meet. In my life, i follow understanding. I follow universal laws. I sing big " Thank You " for everybody who bring to me this great moments, all people I meet in here, all beings who support me and my work. THANK YOU BROTHERS AND SISTERS :)

To be volunteer is to share, knowledge, experiences. Without opinions, with open heart and mind.

To be volunteer is to shine like sun in the middle of strong storm.
