It is amazing how simple yet prophetic the message of the Buddha is. Take the middle path.

 

Many layers of meaning can be found through this simple truth. The one I would like to offer here is what I share through this image.

 

What I understand by the middle, is the center. The Center is the mid point of anything. And if we take our whole being, what is our center. The Heart. So what is the middle path. The path of the heart.

 

So rather than look around for solutions, if we connect with our heart, we will see a reflection of our self. This will tell us the way.

 

So many philosophers from every corner of the world have come to this conclusion, and presented it in their own poetic way. Even if we don't listen to their words, at least we can listen to our own silence in our heart.

 

I humbly offer this image my mother, whose heartful actions speak louder than a million words.
