Buddha has become iconic and ubiquitous. We’re all familiar with the image of the Buddha. We’ve read the quotes. We likely have a statue in our home or garden. But something is missing. There’s something more.
Indeed, there is a new consciousness emerging on the planet and it is time to allow everything to “go new”, including ancient and sacred wisdom. Including you. This name, Happy Buddha Breathing, captured the essence of that idea for me. It is infused with the “freshness, passion, imagination and creativity” that are the faithful companions of “new”.
My approach to this blog, my wisdom, my creations, my life, is to breathe new life into it all. To add pure consciousness into old ideas about awakening, awareness and enlightenment. To go beyond the words held within the quotes into the wisdom they contain. To break free from the fixed and limiting form of a statue and all that it represents. Into a living, breathing experience and expression. Remembering that it wasn’t meant for one. It is meant for us all. It’s not lofty and out of reach. It’s real and reachable. It’s what’s natural, if we allow it.
It’s time to bring it all to life.
