At Times Hidden

Buddha statue Skylands Manor Ringwood, NJ

April 4th, 2009 found me in sort of a funk after working most of the day on the computer editing images for a commercial project. So I decided to seek a more conducive environment for the balance of the afternoon. A short while later I was at Skylands Manor in Ringwood, NJ taking a late afternoon walk.

There is this bench out in one of the gardens that I’ve often choosen to take a rest on. Once again I sat there for a short while. Upon looking up I noticed this Buddha across from me. What was unusual is that I have sat on that bench many, many times before, however I have never noticed this peaceful statue that was now across from me. ¬†There are times when we look, but we don’t see.

The moral is “the things that we need in our life will become apparent to us only when we are receptive to them.”
