I visited Paradise.
Paradise is a place in the South Island of New Zealand.

The area is home to 'Paradise Ducks', which have a beautiful unique colour to them.

And there is even a local beer called 'Paradise Pilsner', brewed locally in the area.

I recently hiked through this area on a family trip. The sheer beauty of the scenery left me gazing at the waters and mountains.
Crystal clear waters
However, even though paradise surrounded me, I could not maintain tranquility in my mind at all times.
Complaints kept popping up inside me, keeping me inside my mind.
Only if this world of Paradise, could be always inside me.

People travel far and wide to reach this breathtaking beauty and to feel a sense of calmness and peace.
In religious scriptures, it says Paradise is in your mind.
We can find Paradise inside ourselves when we throw away all of our karma, habits and body.
I really want to always have Paradise inside me, so that I can fully appreciate the endless beauty of mother nature at all times.
