Buddha and the Bodhi Tree

At the center of this mandala sits the little white figure of the Buddha, pondering life and awaiting enlightenment. Do you see him beneath the Bodhi tree? Buddha came from a life of privilege and wealth, yet it wasn’t until he left his creature comforts and witnessed life first hand that led to his own enlightenment. Life is difficult. The sooner we accept that basic concept the easier life becomes. Why does that concept liberate us? It provides freedom from expectation. With that simple word--expectation--comes the seed of perpetual disappointment. Once we expect, we set ourselves up for a preconceived notion of what life SHOULD be. But what happens when reality strikes? We are not prepared. How do we prepare? We prepare for the worst, while hoping for the best.
