Things That Can Be Carried On A Bike (#9)

My teenage son.
His book bag with about 20 pounds of books and school supplies (strapped to the opposite side of the bike.
A salvaged garden urn.
Kindling for my wood stove (in the urn).
A box containing a shoulder bag, a laptop computer, and two loaves of freshly baked bread.

Could a Bodhisattva be carried on your bike?

Hi Anonymous,

I'm not sure what to make of your comment...but my answer is yes without doubt; the bike could carry a Bodhisattva in the literal sense, but I like to think that we each carry the Seed of enlightenment within ourselves wherever we go...the key, I suppose (at least it is with me) is to be aware of it and nurture it. Thanks for reading and commenting. Peace. said…
I so LOVE this series of what can be "carried on a bike.." Makes one think and ponder.. that's always a good thing to do. I always smile and laugh outloud. (although I am easily amused...)

A little prayer before getting on a bike or before getting out of bed.
In the beginner's mind there are many possibilities, but in the expert's there are few.

Thanks Anonymous,

I love the quote, I'll try to remember that. It's also inspiring because some days when I think I'm in charge and know more than I do I realize I don't know much at all...that I'm pretty much a beginner at everything...lots of possabilities.
