Beauty brings you closer to God. #Bali

Art, creating beauty, brings you closer to the Gods, they say in Bali.

I am sure this is correct, at least in Bali. And creating beauty doesn’t only include artist, even though there are special villages for both wood carvings, stone art, silver, those beautiful and inexpensive batik silk saris, furniture, clothes and so on. It also includes bringing out the best in yourself – or in small things like arranging a flower pot in your garden. 

Balinese architechture is the most beautiful I have ever seen: buildings and statues in stone covered with moss, low buildings with the typical roofs and small outside yards between every room. Flowers. Altars and house temples.
