I once read a book and it said that our mind is like a garden. We have to always look after this garden consistently in order for it to flourish healthily.
This is a portrait of my inner-self contributing to the monastery. I think the most profound thing I did was contributing my imagination and artistic skills to the monastery. I think the things I did did not worth much, but it still felt a certain sense of worth in it. Although my mind and heart are contradictory, the surroundings gave me a sense of purpose and it felt that I made a difference to others.
The interactions between me and other people were always a challenge. This time over here at Taiwan, I felt more natural. I did not take people’s opinions personally as I used to. My heart felt bigger and dare to be more adventurous than I used to be. I do not have to force myself to be brave. I felt that I am brave.
