Another Buddha Appearance...



Usually I have a funny bone about stuff, having been born under the sign of Absurdism.  On the other hand I'm committed to creating a good version of "me".  So I collect and permanently file all the persuasions I've dabbled in. 

I don't mean to make myself seem superficial, but I have often found the spiritual grass to be greener on the other path.  I drift between the pure masters, grateful to receive the amazing gifts they carry.  I'm pleased to find much that I seek, and to be forgiven by all.  Sacred voices, ohms and hymns, symbols wrought for prayer, find a place in my room.

And yet...many suns to rise, many moons to set....

Perhaps you've been through the experience where you feel you finally "get it"..and here comes that avalanche again. I definitely believe in karma..I mean to burn those bad seeds.

PRAYER OF CONFESSION

All the evil karma ever committed by me since days of old, on account of greed, anger and folly, have no beginning.  Born of my body, mouth and thought, I now make full open confession of it.

Indeed, many disillusioned turn to the East for a different philosophy. A lot find truth and meaning in the teachings of Buddha, who was, after all, a great spiritual leader. And more importantly - a human. A human being, at a height of enlightenment that we are all capable of.

Hi Sam-
Always happy to receive your lucid comments..Only humans know humans. Do the gods know us? Or perhaps play with us?

I can certainly relate to this, Lyn. I am a seeker too. Such wisdom in Buddhism! The spirit is willing, but the body is weak. We all fall off the path now and again, but it's a comfort to know we are always welcomed back.

Most days I feel I get it and am living my truth but occasionally I remember the fun of seeking...the quest, the earnest seeking...great feeling to be at the beginning.

Hi Mary Ann-
Very well put...the seeking.. and exploring a new thought, angle, is with me still!!But my truth sits well with me...

Hi Lyn,

Keeping an open mind about most things must help. There is too much wisdom and truth for only one version.

Hi Derrick-
Thanks..that's why we're lucky..wisdom is an ever recurring gift to us mere mortals!
