I know that I have not written in quite some time. My time has been spent seeing this new land and trying to understand some of the ways of the people. In many ways they are not unlike my own kin, however, their impatience and anger is what appears to drive them along without much thought for the consequences and the future. We are taught and trained at a young age how to temper these things by the monks. I can understand how their intrusion into our lands has wrought the awakening of the Sha. There is much strife in this land that seems meaningless to me and I am not one to pass judgment on others, however, it does make me curious.
Currently I live in one of the main cities and I can assure you that there are many adventurous young Pandaren that have traveled here, so, over time, I have found many of my own kind to socialize with and have found several monks that are of an age that they can guide me in my meditations. I know that several of us have regretted leaving our homeland and wish to return, however, that return would defeat the purpose of our coming in the first place.
When the Mist lifted from our land and these adventurers came into the land, bringing their own trials, troubles and tribulations with them, I know that a lot of us wanted to see their lands. It sounded very mysterious and it was different from how we were living. Ah yes, they do say that sometimes our curiosity can lead us astray, however, once the decision has been made to set forth to these new lands, you do have to earn the passage back to or homeland.
From what I have learned since I have been in Stormwind is that there have been many wars in the land, not only within the Eastern Kingdoms and Kalimdor. There are other places that I have not seen yet in my journey and I am anxious to see them. This place called Outland where a world has shattered and is attached to Azeroth through some type of magical portal – it sounds very scary and yet exciting at the same time. There is battling in that world as well, not unlike our past history with the Mogu that still threatens the peace in Pandaria.
So many places I have not seen yet and have only heard tales of from the people that I have met. Life never seems to be dull for these people, however, the strife would be more than just unsettling if it were a constant pressure. I know that we have had strife in my homeland, however, we have been able to move it to a proper perspective and let it be a part of our lives without being the main focus. There are other things in life to give you joy if only you will take the time to slow down and see it for what it is.
I know that I was taught that there must be a balance in your life in order for you to survive with some kind of inner peace. If there was only some way to make the people understand that balance. I know that I do not have the education nor the power to make them understand for I am a lowly hunter, however, I know that I will take my time passing through these lands and enjoy the beauty as well as the dangers.
I suppose that I have written enough nonsense and I should close the book and put it away again. Changwu and Jake have invited me to go with them to the Faire to see the sights and to see all of the different people. I have been before and spent a great deal of time looking at the strange beasts that are in the zoo there. Some of them I would like to see in the wild and some of them I hope I don’t see because they might take a liking to Pandaren for a meal.
