Vesak…

today many Buddhists celebrate Vesak, commemorating the Buddha’s birth, enlightenment and death. having come from excess, having seen the face of suffering, and finding no escape in extreme aestheticism, Siddhartha Gautama sat beneath the Bodhi tree setting in motion the path to end suffering (dissatisfaction) which begins with authentically meeting ourselves where we are and life as it is.

if we are to wake up, it can happen with this life, with this heart and this mind.

this is it.

today i commemorated with some extra meditation, listening to talks and making these ensos 😌🙏🏻📿
