the Buddha himself
did not start enlightened
he walked the path    (Cathy Tenzo)

where wisdom can be gathered
like blisters on his soles   (Björn)

  1. I take it from what you wrote that gathered wisdom isn’t necessarily always pleasant! 😉

  2. Wisdom gathers, like blisters on the sole. These are really wow lines. wisdom gathers self explanatory but the blisters on the sole. The journey was long and hard and pays off with the wisdom you gathered. I am in awe with these lines.

  3. We are all on a journey to find our goals in life. That journey isn’t always easy, but it leads us to enlightenment. Awesome completion with a twist in the last line. Brought a smile on my face. 🙂
