Wesak day Float procession

Every year, Sis & I will follow the Wesak’s Float by walking around city area. It’s the best time for us to contemplate on the teaching of our great teacher, The Buddha. We are blessed for every step we are walking as we are following the path of liberation. I am truly grateful for the teaching as it help to resolve so much challenges in mundane  life yet my mind can be remain in peace and calm, and always full of happiness.

The serenity of the full moon night…

Sometimes, we might assume everything go well is A MUST in life and we might forget to be grateful and thankful for whatever we have and whatever we can do at this moment of life.

During the float, suddenly heavy rain plus thunder,  Sis & I just outside a shopping mall, we found a shelter to protect us from get wet.

Anything can happen in anytime. Get ready, accept and move on! A great lesson!

Anything can happen in anytime. Get ready, accept and move on! What a  great lesson on “Impermanence of life”! Even though, things go well now, however, in next moment, it can go terribly wrong. May your mind be at peace and calm no matter good or bad things happen in life!

With full determination, nothing can stop you.. Be diligent in your path!

With full determination, nothing can stop you.. Be diligent in your path! Whatever happen now, it’s the best thing happen in life!

We consider good as we found a shelter from getting wet and yet we might consider bad as we decided not to follow the float as raining heavily. Good or bad, its depend on your perspective and your thought at that moment of life. Always remember that there is no permanent of good or bad in life.  This incident deepen our understanding that whatever happen for a reason, to remind us, “No matter good or bad, just accept with open heart, to be mindful and grateful in any moment of life.”

No matter what decision we are making in life, our mind must be in peace and calm.

“Peace comes from within, Do not seek it without.” By Buddha

Even though we can’t complete our journey. We gave our best blessings for those who were continue walking…

“May you accomplish your journey in peace and calm and shine your kind thoughts and compassion to surrounding. Make this world a beautiful place to stay”
