Birds and Buddha

“We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.” – Buddha

 “Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.” – Buddha

Riley had a homework assignment to go to a museum for his History class! We decided to make a day trip out of it with Brian and went over to the Buddhist Temple in Kaneohe. It was really great together. We came right when it opened and walked around the temple grounds and then fed the birds and fish. They especially loved the food and Brian. The birds would just stack on top of each other and sit in our hands. We also tried meditating and getting Brian to sit down and breath deeply for fun, he lasted about one second. He prefers pacing and speed walking. 
It was a lovely buddhalicious day!
