stay calm by quietpurplehaze

stay calm

The Buddha currently sits on the deck next to a trough of beautiful pulsatillas.

He reminds me of the need to stay in the moment, more than ever necessary now in our daily life.

Indoors every day I am following a mindfulness meditation programme, mostly as one of my strategies for dealing with my osteoarthritis, but I hope it is also generally therapeutic.

Best to be doing something, rather than nothing, for a problem.
Beautiful photo and you are so right to be following a programme for your osteoarthritis and your mental well being.

So calm, brings to mind the saying 'Peace comes from within, do not seek it without'

We seem to be suffering from the same pain Hazel! I too find a peacefulness with a Buddha around and have quite a few. Hope he keeps you calm and safe.

Thank you Diana. I have two small Buddhas indoors: one made in a prison workshop; the other crafted in ivory, a bit antique but now illegal of course............

@quietpurplehaze That is so funny Hazel, I have two in Ivory as well. I bought them in the early 70's in Japan :-)

I think mine is 19th century, not sure - can do nothing with them now, forbidden to sell them.

Hope your Buddha keeps you calm & keeps you safe in your bubble Hazel.

Love the comp. Anything that helps us stay calm must help. At least it helps us cope.

I have a little laughing wooden Buddha who sits on my desk. I like to rub his belly, I believe it is good luck to do so. Mindfulness is often helpful to anchor us back down to calm, in my humble opinion.
