Carla - ”No te quiero, pero sí”
Finally sunny weather in Belgium! That calls for ice lollies…
During Buddha’s search for enlightenment, he lived through a period of extreme asceticism, eating only a leaf or grain of rice a day. He became so emaciated, suffered so much & still no enlightenment.
He soon realized self mortification was not the way, but neither was self indulgence. He soon discovered the middle path after he was given rice pudding to eat by a village girl.
Thereafter, he sat under the bodhi tree & attained nirvana.
