I'm telling you, this mantis was starring right in my eye, turning his head according to my movements!
Got pretty creepy and... scary in a few seconds, decided to avoid a possible battle.
💡 Don't take unnecessary risks, but don't be afraid to fall either if you see a desired destination.

Thailand and Vietnam are very popular destinations in South Asia. People think that these two counties are similar but they are not☝🏻For example, Thailand is a constitutional monarchy while Vietnam is a Socialist Republic. Buddhism is main religion in Thailand when Vietnam is officially an atheist country☸️Interesting fact but one of the most famous incidents connected with religion, public self-immolation, happened in Vietnam in last century. Buddhist monk burned himself at a busy Saigon road intersection protesting against the persecution of Buddhists by Vietnamese government💀This protest was widely covered in the press and when J. Kennedy saw the famous photo he said that "No news picture in history has generated so much emotion around the world as that one” 📰//Тайланд и Вьетнам – два самых популярных туристических места в Южной Азии среди россиян. Хоть эти страны и похожи, но сравнивать их нельзя🔎Например, Тайланд – это конституционная монархия (кстати, в прошлом году самый долгоправящий в истории страны король скончался) , а Вьетнам – социалистическая республика⭐️Почти всё население Тайланда исповедует буддизм, в то время как большинство вьетнамцев – атеисты🤷🏼♀️Одно из самых известных происшествий, связанных с религей во Вьетнаме, произошло в середине прошлого века. Это было самосожжение монаха на одном из оживленных перекрестков города Хошимин, направленное против преследований буддистов режимом Нго Динь Зьема😟Газеты, телевидение и фотографы были заранее извещены о предстоящем событии, поэтому протест был широко освещен в прессе. Работа фотографа, сделавшего знаменитый снимок монаха в огне, была удостоена Пулитцеровской премии. В свое время американский президент также отметил, что «никогда газетная фотография не вызывала столь сильного волнения по всему миру"💔 #vietnam#nhatrang#vsco#vscocam#vscovietnam#вьетнам#нячянг#travel#buddha#buddhism#saigon#hochiminhcity#selfimmolation
To be perfectly realistic, no photograph no matter how great could truly capture the essence and beauty of this outstandingly detailed temple.
Intriguing patterns, laced with red and green jewels and of course gold tainted- Wat Doi Suthep/ Hmong village is like a page from a story book. Let alone the culture mixed in, i.e. The hand painted and crafted "San Bang" Thai umbrellas. #TravelToChaingMai#Beautiful#Culture#Temples#Love#Thailand#AsiaLiving#Golden#Buddha
If heaven does exist, and in heaven you get whatever it is that you desire, you wish for it and it comes true instantly.
Then that must mean the experience of heaven is based on the capacity of your personal knowledge? Because You cannot wish for something you don't know about. So heaven and its experiences are based on personal perceptions, knowledge, and limit of ones imagination.
Is that not what life on earth here is anyways.... I mean, We live our lives based on what we know, think and believe. The only difference i see is that in "heaven" whatever you wish for you get, and on earth you have to grind and make it happen. The infinite abundance of wishes are limited to what the person can think of... Just like how an indigenous person in the jungles of Brazil who knows nothing of a Lamborghini, cannot wish for it.....on earth nor in heaven😳🙏... So heaven must be what you believe it to be, just as life on earth is what you believe it to be...so you see the power is in belief..use it wisely.
#Reincarnation has been adopted by #Hindus , #Buddhists , #Taoists , some sects of #Islam , older #Christian sects but it is not really a religious phenomena. Religion may have methods to help us control the process or even master the process better but it is not necessarily a religious discovery. #Buddha never discovered or manufactured reincarnation but recognized it as he saw it. Like atoms existed prior to #scientists identifying their existence which is pretty recent in the backdrop of human existence. Reincarnation can be examined from a religious point of view or strictly secular. However you look at it, reincarnation exists. It is the universal law of #consciousness . Like planets will appear, exist and then disintegrate. If we have a #mind now, we had it yesterday. If we had it yesterday, we must have had it at birth and in the womb. If we had the mind in the womb, we had it at #conception and prior to conception. The mind is something that is continuous and cannot JUST APPEAR. If we had it prior to conception, then obviously it must be a former life. The mind (consciousness) does not exist in the right or left temporal lobes of our #brains . There are people without the physical brain and yet they have coherence and consciousness. Consciousness is connected to the brain but does not exist in the brain. We have the ability to speak but that is not in our mouth. If we don't have a mouth, we will still be able to 'speak' #communicate but we cannot communicate through a mouth. So like the ability of speech is not in the mouth as mind is not in the brain. Hence there are existences that have coherence/cognition/feelings/aggregate like #perceptions that do not have #form (body or brain.). Just some food for thought for everyone. ~ Tsem Rinpoche ★tsemrinpoche.com --- Interesting case point: http://bit.ly/2pgzhUa
