Contemplative Monday



"The Buddha taught that we're not actually in control,
which is a pretty scary idea.
But when you let things be as they are, 
you will be a much happier, more balanced, compassionate person."

    1. We have lots of 'green' everywhere here, Jean.
      I took that photo as Ron was driving me to work yesterday.....my favourite 'solo tree' I call it.
      A happy new week to you and Hugh.

    1. Mine too, Janie. And I have to admit that once I did, things were much more peaceful and 'lighter'.
      A lot of responsibility was given to me as a very young person, someone had to get things things done I felt.
