A rolling stone gathers no moss

Conversations with Zoe and Buddha: Rolling Stone

Buddha: “A rolling stone gathers no moss”- I like this.

Think on it. This doesn’t necessarily mean continual movement of forms but it can mean renewal- allow yourself to be renewed, revitalized in each moment. Keep in mind that you too are a rolling stone even when you are still.

Conversations with Zoe and Buddha: Let the Tide Turn

Buddha: Sometimes we say, “Love shall set you free”- free from what? You’re own sense of tyranny, isolation and desperation. Let yourself feel love; let yourself be loving, and the tide will turn. As it does so it shall wash the fears, cares and concerns away. You will have peace.

Conversations with Zoe and Buddha: In the Absence of Love

Buddha: In the absence of love nothing is real. Your sensory perception still perceives but it has lost its connection to  All That Is. Remember the Heart of the Matter. Only love is real. Everything else is meaningless.

The heart of the matter

Buddha: Let’s get to the heart of the matter. Only love is real. You are created by it, created from it and prosper by harnessing it and love is your central driving force. When you understand this the problems you face, as well as the problems of the world, will fade a way.

I love you. You love me too. You might just not know it yet…

A Fine Way To Live: Buddha with Zoe

A fine way to live

Conversations with Zoe and Buddha: A Fine Way to Live

Buddha: We’ve spoken before about right use of mind.

Your mind directs your being. Towards what? Towards whatever it is concerned or focused upon. There may be no method in this. In life, behaving this way would be considered folly. A life of perpetual meandering. Now some people do behave this way. This is considered to be an undesirable or even mentally ill state of being. Unless you wish life to give you more meandering like experiences, focus yourself. Start with your mind: what do you wish to achieve? How will you achieve? Then be. And as you be, act upon your plan. This is a fine way to live in this, your world.

Money- Does It Matter? Buddha with Zoe

Does money matter?

Conversations with Zoe and Buddha: Does Money Matter?

Buddha: Today I wish to speak to about wealth and whether it matters. This is a subject that many of you fight with yourself about. By wealth I am going to focus on money: the mechanism that you have for acquiring large amounts of things and experiences.

The world was made abundantly. There was always more for you than you could ever utilize or use. It was made with great love and given to you with great joy. More than you could ever utilize: a land of milk of honey. But where you have gone wrong is in thinking that more of it was meant for you than was designed for another.

Over the ages man has ensnared man even to the point of physical entrapment . Further more many have sold what they felt was their right to sell: the physical body of another. This is fundamentally against the principle upon which this reality, this earth, was created.

It is possible to go back to having enough for all but a culture shift will need to happen that is so vast you could call it cataclysmic. This will be started by a shift in consciousness. Many of you feel this. Your institutions feel this and their answer is to try and shore their institutions and themselves up in more wealth as if that means the cataclysm can’t and wont affect them.

Many of you are currently suffering feeling you do not have enough. If you feel this is you, please take the time to look around and you and see if this is true- do you really not have enough? Enough of what? Food? Look in your kitchen. Money? Look in your bank. And with this one also look at your spend. Many of you claim to not have enough but actually have more than you could ever maintain physically by yourself: your home, your cars, your electrical goods and so forth. This is indeed a time of change and in these times you are asked to look within and find your own personal answers to how much is enough for you. Once you have enough, cycle your excess: this was, and is, the basis of charity and community.

It is entirely possible that the cycle of money you circle in this life may come back to you when you may need it for yourself. Lonely is the person who shores themselves with big bank accounts and excesses of living whilst others are in pain. This is how it is. This is how it always has been. This is how it always will be. This is because you are part of each other. To shore yourself against another defies your nature, so your nature will suffer. To sell another for personal gain without thought and feeling for their well-being is another example. It defies your nature and so your nature must suffer.

I say end this suffering: discover your enough and circulate your excess. All is well with your world.

Live! Buddha with Zoe

Live, Buddha with Zoe, image dynamic flower
Live whilst you are alive

Conversations with Zoe and Buddha: Live!

Buddha: ‘Living’ is the experience you undertake as you have this so called ‘life’. But are you living? Or existing? Do not forget that ‘living’ in it’s true sense is an opening of possibility; the numerous and endless ways you can meet this moment now as you are alive in body.

Live today. Existence will still be here tomorrow. But it may change. Feel alive and embrace the experience of possibilities. Do not shed them for a meaningless existence.

I exist: I live- just in a different way from you. I still engage in the lives I live and experience them in their fullest. While you may not comprehend my meaning on myself, comprehend it for yourself. Feel like you’re living while you are alive.

An Affirmation of Success: Buddha with Zoe

An affirmation of success

Conversations with Zoe and Buddha: An Affirmation of Success

Buddha: There are those who think how will I survive if I don’t do? If I don’t achieve? If I don’t succeed? But ask yourself- survive what? Living? You cannot survive this as it is your destiny to leave living through death. This is inevitable. Does this mean put yourself in harms way? No. But learn to cherish the living one within. The one that unites you with all other Ones. The eternal. It is here to enjoy and explore. So why not enjoy and explore? Perhaps you can do this as you go about your daily life and business. Perhaps you can make this your affirmation of success.

Go now, and enjoy yourself.

Prioritisation: Buddha with Zoe

Prioritisation

Conversations with Zoe and Buddha: Prioritisation

Buddha: As I look on I notice that many of you have many things to do, places to go, errands to run. But where are your priorities- in being busy? I ask you to look at this today. Life will always present opportunities for events, for getting things done, but is this really how you wish your experience of living to be? Ask yourself this today. For many of you, slowing down will unlock a life worthy of living.

This is all.
