Everyone can be wrong once…even buddists

“The Buddhists say if you meet somebody and your heart pounds, your hands shake, your knees go weak, that’s not the one. When you meet your ‘soul mate’ you’ll feel calm. No anxiety, no agitation.”

Monica Drake

Constance…saw this quote, and my first thought was “Oh well, everyone is wrong once in a while!”

It’s interesting to me that often the “exotic” or “unusual” perspective is granted a higher esteem or place, given the benefit of the doubt more than the usual.

While I certainly think it possible that this quote is that way for many, I can tell you unequivocally that in my life it is precisely wrong!

When I met my baby, and when I met my bff…it was not like this, until after.

Before?  It was confluence…Mississippi and Missouri melding…fire and ice meeting in love…

Baby…bff…so love you.  So thankful for you

and still pounding heart, shaky hands, and weak knees…for all time

love, Charissa Grace

  1. Yes.. true.. However, i guess what the buddhist must have meant was that despite of all the heart pounding, legs going weak etc on meeting someone, inside you would be calm. That was true for my case when I met my gf, who is quite opposite to how I am.. 🙂

    • OH!! Now I LOVE that spin on it! Points to the basic unity of true Truth as well, seen and experienced in different perspectives and pieces, and then reconstituted as we know and share and receive from one another.

      Such a valuable contribution, and many many thanks!
