To Be Happy…

Praise and blame, gain and loss, pleasure and sorrow come and go like the wind. To be happy, rest like a giant tree in the midst of them all.  – Buddha

  4. A lovely quote for the way I feel today also, on my many blended path. I have just sat uner a huge Willow tree on the bank of a river. I offered a flower to the spirit of water, to take the symbol of the flower to bring healing to all our rivers streams and oceans, and that healing flowing water to bring healing to all beings. And thanked God for the beauty around me and then became totally submerged in an experience. Time was suspended,patterns, colours and sounds magnified and I was one with the tree, the water and the breeze. Magical.
