The Buddha is one that sits in the back of my skybox pond and sometimes I just take a moment to reflect and center myself there, sitting in the chair across from him. This particular Buddha was created by Anthony Gartner, a creator in SL who owns THE DREAMER CREATIONS. The store is full of small things, as well as furniture, beach and garden products and so forth. I had originally gone there to find a pitching boat he sells – which I also love. But Buddha caught my eye and I end up thinking about him and looking at him much more than I do the boat.
The Buddha reminds me that I often shove life to the very edge of what I can do – and find myself angry and frustrated when things unfold more slowly than I would like. But life does not unfold on my timeline or according to my plan. The surprises it holds are all a part of what I need to accept. What I want and what I get might seem at odds – and there is the lesson.
