. . . just cuz i’m buddhist, doesn’t mean i don’t know a thing or two about christianity. i have been thinking a lot about my spirituality lately . . . my religious mantra has always been:

religion divides men; spirituality brings us together.

 

Growing up in southern mississippi provided a plentitude of opportunities to visit different churches and learn about different beliefs . . . from methodist to lutheran, southern baptist to catholic, synagogues to temples, holy worshippin!!!!

my favorite book about spirituality: The Tao of Pooh by Benjamin Hoff

“When you wake up in the morning, Pooh,” said Piglet at last, “what’s the first thing you say to yourself?”

“What’s for breakfast? said Pooh. “What do you say, Piglet?”

“I say, I wonder what’s going to happen exciting today?” said Piglet.

Pooh nodded thoughtfully.
“It’s the same thing,” he said.

Everything has its own place and function. That applies to people, although many don’t seem to realize it, stuck as they are in the wrong job, the wrong marriage, or the wrong house. When you know and respect your Inner Nature, you know where you belong. You also know where you don’t belong.

I am 33 today.
I have a handsome, witty and charming 13-yr young man in my life.
I have a bless-his-heart beautiful, sheds-too-much, monster-of-a-pup at my feet.
I have good friends and a family who continues to support and love me more each day.
I love my job and the wonderfully kind and thoughtful people I work with.
I have a love in my life, though still trying to navigate the rough waters of compromise and forgiveness.

There is a lot that I am grateful for. Thank you, god, buddha, allah and everything and everyone who is watching out for me. Ms. Wallace, B, marylee . . . gotta include the old people in my life who are almost as old as god. πŸ˜‰
