Laughing Buddha

All perception is ultimately an illusion constructed out of our conditioning, a mere fragment of any given circumstance, and never the entire truth. As such, we begin to understand that no one has to be wrong and that nothing is personal. From this vantage point, there is nothing to be attached to, and the need for conflict instantly falls apart. Comically, we have no-thing to defend but yet another illusion. If we can see this clearly, we can laugh at ourselves and lighten up, ending the needless and seeming endless suffering of humanity. This approach releases all the energy we waste in conflict and allows us to find creative solutions, to make music and to celebrate Life. Much like the Buddha, laughing in the garden, where is the problem Now? ~ Cathy Ginter
