Bali is one of the best tourism object in Indonesia. Well many people say that... But like an ordinary girl, I just feel very ordinary to live here, in Bali. I didn't think that Bali is a very special place before.
But when I was in Jakarta, everything in my mind change. After looked Jakarta I finally know that Bali is one of special place in Indonesia. Bali is beautifull! Now I can understand why many people have a desire to visit this place.
Ok, I love my home an everything about this. I love Balinese art, Balinese music, Balinese dance, and others.... Love is Bali.

Have you ever felt like the worst person in the world.? Sometime you think that you have so many problems that you can't solve. If yes, don't believe your mind.! Why? because there is no problem that can't solve. You may can't solve that problem by your self, but there is always any help to someone who deserve it. *You may think that I watch Harry Potter too much (actually I have heard this sentence from Dombledore and it's true).
Sometime we forget that all problem is for our self improvement. Almost of us think that problem is something which inhibit the success. But if you change your to positive thinking, it will different. The problem is very troublesome, of course! But this thing can make you stronger and better. Remember your childhood, what thing you can do?? and remember your self now, how is your hair now? how many thing you can do now?, compare it! If you have experienced many problem you must be very different. Someone who have experienced many problem is different to someone who never faced problem. Someone who have experienced very hard problem, he/she will be very strong.
That's all, so, don't be desperate!!!

The body is a dancer's instrument, but is it attuned to the mind? A new study from the University of California, Berkeley, suggests that professional ballet and modern dancers are not as emotionally in sync with their bodies as are people who regularly practice meditation.
UC Berkeley researchers tracked how closely the emotions of seasoned meditators and professional dancers followed bodily changes such as breathing and heart rates.
They found that dancers who devote enormous time and effort to developing awareness of and precise control over their muscles -- a theme coincidentally raised in the new ballet movie "Black Swan" -- do not have a stronger mind-body connection than do most other people.
By contrast, veteran practitioners of Vipassana or mindfulness meditation -- a technique focused on observing breathing, heartbeat, thoughts and feelings without judgment -- showed the closest mind-body bond, according to the study recently published in the journal Emotion.
"We all talk about our emotions as if they are intimately connected to our bodies -- such as the 'heartache of sadness' and 'bursting a blood vessel' in anger," said Robert Levenson, a UC Berkeley psychology professor and senior author of the study. "We sought to precisely measure how close that connection was, and found it was stronger for meditators."
The results offer new clues in the mystery of the mind-body connection. Previous studies have linked the dissociation of mind and body to various medical and psychiatric diseases.
"Ever have the experience of getting home from work and realizing you have a blistering headache?" said Jocelyn Sze, a doctoral student in clinical science at UC Berkeley and the lead author of the study. "The headache probably built up throughout the day, but you might have been intentionally ignoring it and convincing yourself that you felt fine so that you could get through the demands of the day."
Increasingly, mindfulness meditation is being used to treat physical and psychological problems, researchers point out. "We believe that some of these health benefits derive from meditation's capacity to increase the association between mind and body in emotion," Levenson said.
For the experiment, the researchers recruited volunteers from meditation and dance centers around the San Francisco Bay Area and via Craigslist. The study sample consisted of 21 dancers with at least two years of training in modern dance or ballet and 21 seasoned meditators with at least two years of Vipassana practice. A third "control group" was made up of 21 moderately active adults with no training in dance, meditation, Pilates or professional sports.
Participants, who ranged in age from 18 to 40, were wired with electrodes to measure their bodily responses while they watched emotionally charged scenes from movies and used a rating dial to indicate how they were feeling.
Although all participants reported similar emotional reactions to the film clips, meditators showed stronger correlations between the emotions they reported feeling and the speed of their heartbeats. Surprisingly, the differences between dancers and the control group were minimal.
Researchers theorize that dancers learn to shift focus between time, music, space, and muscles and achieve heightened awareness of their muscle tone, body alignment and posture.
"These are all very helpful for becoming a better dancer, but they do not tighten the links between mind and body in emotion," Levenson said.
By contrast, meditators practice attending to "visceral" body sensations, which makes them more attuned to internal organs such as the heart. "These types of visceral sensations are a primary focus of Vipassana meditation, which is typically done sitting still and paying attention to internal sensations," Sze said.
The study was published in the December 2010 issue of Emotion. In addition to Sze and Levenson, coauthors are UC Berkeley psychologists Joyce W. Yuan and Anett Gyurak, who is currently a postdoctoral fellow at Stanford University.
Firstly, we have to know what is meditation. Meditation refers to any of a family of practices in which the practitioner trains his or her mind or self-induces a mode of consciousness in order to realize some benefit (wikipedia.org). Actually there is so many people know about meditation benefits. You can find all of those by searching in search engine.

2. Emotional Benefits
Like a common humans, we have many emotion. One emotion give you positive energy, so you fell good. But, the other one give you negative energy so you you feel bad. Some People think that emotion cause is heart, but the truth is : emotion cause is from your mind. When you get some thing, your mind will drive your emotion to common sense that you formed before. For example, your friend give you cobra, you may scream because you afraid, other person may be happy if give that. This is one that show that our emotion is relative. we can drive this ourselves to be good feel or bad feel.
Meditation give us the way how to erase many bad emotions and get more good emotion in any occasion.

Nowadays there is so many pollution everywhere, especially in big city. I feel it since arrived in Jakarta, two days ago. May be everybody don't think too much about it. They only care about their money or their jobs, or other where as their health is more important than anything. They don't know there is many tocsin around them. It can make our body lost its defense.
For simple, you can buy detox products for safe your body from pollution and many toxin. But you still do many things like drink more water, not too long around pollution, or not too long in a room that using air conditioning.
