It’s been too cold to sit on the porch and watch the ships passing by, the seagulls and terns above, and to listen for the trains motoring along the sound. I did step out for a minute or so several times, but cold. Buddha, however, shows how to be unaffected by weather, leaves and pine needles. I will try again next time, although I do not know when that will be.
WikiPee argues that the Buddhist term bodhi is often expressed as enlightenment, but it’s a process, so awakening is a more accurate translation. Me, I struggle with either when I’m cold.
