If you can’t tell what my avatar picture is, it’s the headstock of my guitar along with a Buddha statue in the background.
|My viewpoint of God is rather blaring as its in the title of my blog but in guiding my life, the Noble Eightfold Path resonates with me.The pair, Deism and Buddhism works for me.Would I say I’m a Buddhist though? Hell I don’t even know if my view of God is really even that of a Deist. But on Buddhism, I liken it to something I heard from this old timer once when I asked him, “so you’re a golfer?”|
He said, “i wouldn’t say I’m a golfer. I have a set of clubs. I have a bunch of golf balls, golf shoes, even golf pants and a hat. You can see me at a golf course pretty often. But what I do I don’t think can be called what a golfer does.” He laughed, I laughed and I understood exactly what he meant.
Same with me and Buddhism. I’m tryin like hell to put that little ball in the hole but I’m pretty sure what I do is not what a Buddhist does.
But I’m gonna try a little harder this year. I hope to resume / reclaim some semblance of my spiritual practice. When I first started blogging i tried picking up a yoga practice again but it soon fell to the wayside. My daily meditation has been non existent for at least a year and a half. And I need it back.
I’ve lately been turning into an assbag and I don’t like it. Admitting it is the first step right.
Hopefully stepping back on my path again will balance me back from assbagishness.
