‘The Buddhists say there are 121 states of consciousness. Of these, only three involve misery or suffering. Most of us spend our time moving back and forth between these three’.
I read those lines yesterday and pasted them into my document for safe-keeping. Another interesting factoid / opinion safely stored to be rolled out and rehashed whenever the need arose.
But then I was thinking, why keep it for later, might as well use it now. It might well be forgotten in a weeks’ time, what with Christmas and everything. And yes, then you have the Christmas thing about giving, so another reason right there to share it? Not that I needed one.
It’s not really a Christmas message is it? Not the type of thing you’d see on a Christmas card? A Buddhist might not even see it since they presumably don’t celebrate Christmas. So I couldn’t inform them about their beliefs. Who is likely to benefit from such a sentiment?
Hey, as a writer, I just put this stuff out there, where it circulates is not really my problem. It made me smile, (my weird sense of humor – it was a knowing smile btw), but the Christmas card idea stuck. Now all I need is a really good Christmas image. Luckily we are in the right place for images.
If nothing else it will find its way into my top ten ideas for today.
Have a good one.
