Bodhi Day

Yesterday was Bodhi Day. In the Buddhist tradition, it is the day Siddhartha Gautama achieved enlightenment. While we didn't celebrate, per se, we did more than just acknowledge it. We observed it, perhaps. Spirituality is a journey here in our house, and we embrace that journey. 

Enlightenment? Who knows. As I recently told Starbuck ~ I have no illusions that I will ever know myself completely.

Conversation. Meditation. Centering. Peace. Those things? Those we achieved. Not bad for the first Bodhi Day observed in our house, if I do say so myself.

Those are Pobble Thoughts. That and a buck fifty will get you coffee.

A little mixing of comparative religions here -- Muhammad? That should be Islam. Gautama, he became Buddha...

AppsRUs ~ Thanks for the catch. Could I have made it more obvious this particular journey isn't mine? *rolls eyes at self*
