Everyone knows about Leak in Bali, it’s a black magic. People can learn how to get the black magic or another way is it is a curse from the family history. Mostly the magic is used to hurt people. Someone who has the Leak magic also known for eating people’s body organ for feed them or as a ‘payment’ for them if helping people. So, if you need Leak helps, you need to promise them to give your child or wife.
It is very true that Indonesia is a magical land, just as in the title. For those who don’t know, Indonesia is an archipelagic country which has an estimated 17000 islands; about 6000 of which are inhabited. From this basic information, we can see how rich and strong the culture in Indonesia is. Every part of Indonesia has its own culture but as an Indonesian, we do have our national motto which is ”Bhinneka Tunggal Ika”, meaning “Unity in Diversity”. This national motto is not valid for the mystical and mythical world in Indonesia.
Indonesia has a lot of stories from every part of the city which are related to their own culture. Foreigners might not realize that even a small thing in Indonesia can mean ‘something spiritual’; they have some symbols or carvings which are related to the spiritualism in that specific city. Furthermore, ‘mythical’ and ‘mystical’ are the two things that people might not separate with their life. Maybe some of you guys dont believe it, but still, sometimes you hear of some of the stories of it and probably, you will catch some of the tale and thinking of the truth? But well, if you seriously dont believe, at least you will know something about those things. See.. you cant deny it… and for you who believe it, I hope you can see with your eyes, based on the story you heard hahaha. I wish you safe.
Thus, javanese magic in Indonesia is quite famous and is a strong spiritualism out there. I will share with you guys the details in another blog post. Keep in mind Bali, your favorite destination has a lot mystical, mythical and cultural “do’s and don’ts “ there. Beware guys…. you should keep up to date with my blog, guys, because every city in Indonesia that you might visit has ‘some’ story. Watch your step in Indonesia.
War, race discrimination, terrorism, religious matters… Do those sound familiar to you guys?
I can only bring you all to my imaginary world; full of peace, unity and consideration; to remind all those who forgot the three most important things in the world. I am just a normal student who thinks and dreams about what I can do or what makes people blend with each other at least. Here I am, thinking that Culture can bring people together, laugh with peace and let you throw away the bad side of human nature. Culture is a biggest thing that you never imagined. Everyone in this superb world has their own culture and even though everyone has their own, why don’t you let your culture make friends with another culture? Can you imagine when another people try so nicely to fit in with your culture and they are willing to learn it and show the best of them? Its always make me smile to see a foreigner play a traditional instrument . Cuisine, tourism, traditional festivals, arts, and maybe some original lifestyle knowledge are just several things that you can learn from another Culture. Furthermore, once you love another Culture, you will start to learn or search another interesting thing in another place.
I can say Mythical and Mystical are the two most general yet fascinating to know of. These two things are never, ever lost in any single place in this world. Every place has their own story. The story will start from just one person until a billion people spread it all over the world. Who knows? God knows!
I know it sounds ridiculous but hey, people, start dreaming. Put your hopes up in the sky! It all starts from a dream. I think personally, a small thing can become a big thing, anytime and anywhere.
I can’t do anything to make world peace, but at least I have some time to share something hilarious and scary maybe ( I hope so 😉 ), to all of you…and something that might open up your mind about another side of Indonesia beside going to Bali.
Maybe next time, your trip will be going to a rural city to find what I’m going to share next.
