I am not a practicing Buddhist. It just seems that Buddhism has a kind way of accepting the fact of suffering. Thoughtful practices like beginners mind, a mind-set and attitude toward learning that opens you to possibility and the universe to you, offer a soothing alternative to the hurried pace of our world. The Buddha, at rest, reassures us that we are just where we should be and right on time. A calm reminder that whoever we are in this world, however vast our gifts or possessions, quieting the constant call to be and have and do more, requires perspective and a little respite. Best known for a tanigble gift for a spiritual retreat, or a simple celebration for a spiritual milestone gift.
