    Reflections on Wisdom, Wellness, and Wholeness

    On the full moon of May we landed in Thailand and were met by our friend Hajar. “Oh, you have timed your arrival perfectly, this is the Vesak, the celebration of the enlightenment of the Buddha. This is a three-day holiday and the whole country is very happy!” Can you imagine living in a country that has a three-day national holiday dedicated to affirming and celebrating the potential for yourself — and all beings — to awaken fully to our true nature and highest potentials? Depending on your frame of reference, or reverence, you might translate this for yourself to mean awakening to your wholeness, true self, divine nature, or to Christ, or Buddha within you.
