Following up on the last post with the article by Adyashanti, I was thinking of icons and images of the Buddha and what they mean. For me it represents, serenity, forgiveness, acceptance, allowance and stillness. The article said not to worship the Buddha, I do not worship anything. I have a nice big statue of Buddha that I bought myself for my birthday once. I like the aesthetic of it, but it has been interpreted by some as, I am a Buddhist. I am in part Buddhist but I am all things. So I suppose there are many ways to see icons.
Being the Buddha self is a worthy aspiration and I will move in that direction, equally being ones Christed self. Be the highest expression of self possible. Connect to the highest aspect of God Source available to us each, now. Take time to be still.
Anyway just my musings on the iconography of the Buddha…
