Bodhicitta Lady ~ Mindful Realizations to a Path of Bliss

To be in bliss is to live sane, and to be joyful is to ascend as a supreme being walking in the divine ground of existence

Bodhicitta is pineapple for the soul, spiritual saccharine that oxidizes our inner being with scentsy wisdom pulps…                                                                 ═════════════ ღೋƸ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒღೋ═══════

WordPress, my deeear, I am trying my b-e-s-t to get along with you. Oh, I will, you can be sure of that!! You and I, we shall find common ground and be comfy with our quirks and habits. We shall get to know each other, as new friends do, sheepish and gawky and slightly reluctant at first, then slowly engaging and liking,  until soon enough – trusting.
I live and thrive and am’ my own me  in Roselle Quin  blogger land for almost 10 years! Yes, 10 years of writing, silently, quietly, solitary it may seem, but priced with a number of long time loving friends for company. I am set in my ways out  there in my ROSELLE QUIN cyber home — but my muse, she is insistent and I am endearingly enticed to try new thrills and pulled in to even more colorful concepts + creative endeavors. My cerebral is syrupy drippy with the idea of bliss. I will spread my wings and expand. Welcome me here where I am! 
We need to transform our mind, to rid it of ignorance, hatred and attachment. Transforming our mind means that even if we are in a very difficult situation or place, as long as our mind is happy, everything will be fine.~ Namdrol Rinpoche

Waking up this morning I was suffused with the idea of Dharma. This beautiful inspiring meditative way of living has given my inner being a wonderful settlement. I expounded on the graciousness of this path in writing my current blogpost –> “BODHICITTA LADY ~REALIZATIONS TO A PATH OF BLISS”

Here are a few of my favorite inspired quotes lifted from that post:

So injected I am with this crystalline intention, that a seizure of illumination zipped through my spinal consciousness - A life of Dharma - spiritual purposefulness for the whole of the Sangha - the community.

1. Bodhicitta, mindful & ripe with the juiciness of awakened existence, is a semantic energy I hooked from a Buddhist book my husband recently gifted me. The concept of going through life’s motions in meditated movements dedicated to the conscience of lifting every act holy for the good of “one, some and all” is very precise in its Christian notion of renunciation… of “doing unto others” and offering unto God all the dutiful, mundane tasks that at times even inwardly cause suffering.

2. All actions, however simple, however ordinary, however piddling becomes a stepping stone to N-I-R-V-A-N-A if consummated through  gratitude and generosity. The whole of man’s existence becomes suffused with majesty & regal with meaning — the meaning one endows by the charity one  devotes to all sentient beings.

3. For what is heaven, but the state of being free, truly free from ignorance and loathing! Hate is vulgarity of living, while Heaven is to exist in uncomplicated rapture – easy joy – metta.  “For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace and joy,”  Romans 14:17 ~  

4. Our destiny is not far yonder a mythical physical material hope in an afterlife of moneyed riches, but the attainment of a present  imperturbable stillness of mind after the hell fires of intemperate desire, aversion, delusion have been extinguished.

I have much to work on to be what I want but inspiration has spoken.

We are our own wisdom when we ask from the Divine. And sometimes when I am at the throes of being disillusioned or jaded or plain weary, peaceful paths to centering present themselves in unexpected ways. Bodhicitta, a mindful way of being has been an inspiration. Perhaps, you might be inspired as well. To read the whole article with all its accompanying pictures, please click –>
