Living in Light

FF145EAD-2B81-4BDE-B0D8-1BF2971C71A7I have been contemplating about enlightenment recently after watching a show about the Buddha mind, and realize that I still have a long way to go. As much as we all want to believe that we are awakened, there is still so much more work ahead.

However, recently I had a very small breakthrough. During checkout at the grocery store, the clerk assisting us at the checkout line called me “bossy.” When my boyfriend did not hear him clearly, the clerk repeated the statement again, calling me “bossy.” However instead of reacting, I continue to complete my transaction. When we finished, I sincerely wished him a nice weekend, smiled, and left the grocery store.

During this transaction, I did not react, nor did I judge him in anyway. In this fleeting moment, I had Buddha mind. These moments are fleeting in my every day life, but I continue to strive to live in light. I hope to have many more moments like this one in the remaining days of my life here on earth.
