Choices


I'm thinking about choices


and how we have the power

to shape our experience by choosing wisely.


How we have to be present and brave

 and in tune

with our deepest wisdom to do that




and how sometimes choices lead us places

we never thought we'd go.


But here we are.

Funny, your post is on choices and without making the connection immediately, I thought I should choose which of your buddhas I preferred. As I scrolled through them, I found I did not want to choose - I liked them all. It's nice when there are situations when we have the option not to have to make a choice. But, as you say, sometimes there you are and one must be made. Decision-making is a very interesting topic.

Steven: It is so. And sometimes, not making a choice makes a choice.

love these pictures... it made me think of how often the choices we make nothing more than hues or shades of the same thing

it's funny about choices...how one choice can change (or make, that is) your destiny.

Ah, the beauty of learning to 'start where you are'... I love the gentle simplicity of the photos and the wise words.

These are just beautiful, Meri.
I'm wild about Buddha images as you may have noticed.
The verdigris is such a wonderful highlight.
