{buddha with the cracked head}

Whenever I see a statue of Buddha I feel at peace.
For ages I have been looking for one to place
in my perennial garden,
to inspire me
to be more zen.

I found this piece at Pier 1.
It would have been $100 {too expensive for me}
but just my good fortune,
upon inspection, I discovered that
Buddha had a cracked head
which made him 
{b l i s s}

And now, some enlightening words from the Buddha:

"When you realize how perfect everything is you will tilt your head back and laugh at the sky."
"Your work is to discover your work, and then with all your heart give yourself to it."

Live purely. Be quiet.
Do your work with mastery.
Like the moon, come out
from behind the clouds!

"You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection."

"Happiness never decreases by being shared."
