Thai Stuff or Wai to Go

  • Some Thai Chinese might be ranked among the worlds wealthiest people.
  • Thais tend to laugh at difficulties. To lose ones temper is to lose ones dignity. To lose ones dignity is to lose face. To lose face is a serious loss.
  • When in Thailand show respect. Go ahead, wai first. Show delight in your wai and be pleasantly surprised.
  • Display your Care for young and old. Display your respect for teachers and those dedicated to religion.
  • When people are treated with little respect, very bad things can result.
  • There are a dozen Thai cities well worth visiting.

Hello Pligrim

We can find quiet and peaceful place in and around our homes. we can find spots that are more powerful or energizing than others. We often find our places of worship more sacred or holy than other places. There are public and simi-public places in every ad that have been consider energizing or holy in every land. Many of these locations, spots, and places have been the goals of pilgrims.

Americans don't have to go to India or the "Holy Land" to find such places of pilgrimage. There are many in each and every State.

There may be no one of them perfect of everyone. However, I bet that you can find more than fitting for you in your State. Please tell me of ones that you have found.
