A reminder from Buddha

P1080204

I looked out over the garden from the kitchen window today and noticed our buddha caught in a patch of autumn sunshine.

Surounded by green foliage, some with yellowing leaves and some of dark green holly, I paused and remembered the question “What would Buddha do?” (this is on a fridge magnet in my daughter’s house). I must have had the current Brexit mess in the UK on my mind at the time.

The answer – a quote from The Buddha – is:

Sustaining a loving heart, even for the duration of a snap of a finger, makes one a truly spiritual being.

A timely reminder.
