Coming upon this Buddha head overgrown with leaves this morning in our garden .. there was an immediate sense of clarity and peace as I stared transfixed by the stone face peeping through the foliage .. just like a child playing “Hide and Seek” .. This is actually who I am .. Awakeness in disguise as everything .. ..
About a year ago, I tore the meniscus in my left knee. For those of you who have had this injury, the pain can be unbearable. After months of healing, things were starting to improve until I squatted to pick up a paint can and I was in agony again.
Doing this, I was able to reach a point where I am actually grateful for my knee for showing me and for Soraya for helping me surrender to the pain. It reminds me of this beautiful blog
