WANDERING BODHI

whole. heal. holy.

WHAT DOES ‘BODHI’ MEAN ANYWAY?

Bodhi is both a Pali and a Sanskrit word meaning awakened, formed from the root word budh (to awake, become aware, notice, know or understand).

Buddha having attained enlightenment, while sitting under the Bodhi Tree

“Those who have attained enlightenment lose all sense of fear and worry. They’re no longer bothered by mundane matters and see the incredible potential available in each moment. They understand the way life works and the design of the infinite field that orchestrates the flow of energy, information and the countless intricate processes unfolding in every second. Recognizing that they’re an inseparable part of spirit or God, enlightened beings are lighthearted and joyful.” – Deepak Chopra

    It’s been hard to be “awake” in a world of people so often asleep or numb to the world around them. I think things are changing finally and I’m living to see and experience it! :-) Thanks for stopping by my blog and have you on follow now too!
