He is Risen/ The Reclining Buddha

We put a lot of emphasis in this Christianized world on getting up , showing up,
leaning forward . Actions. Today is Easter where the stone allegedly rolled away and the dead rose — at least one who was dead. The world gets energized in Springtime, but there is also the Reclining Buddha of the East where Buddha sees no need to rise up. He sits and observes. A time for action and a time for reaction?
Do we have all bases covered if we accept both stances? Or is there another stance somewhere in between? My head is filled with questions. Answers are not so easy to find.


About christineemmert

Words have been part of my life. First the spoken word in my time as an actress and increasingly the written word in my shift to writer. I write across the genres, but mostly as a playwright and poet. My interest as my life extends is in the realm of tethering myth to the mundane reality where I live. In this vein I have expanded into stories and novels. Presently I look at how myths taken from past cultures can affect us today. Hence my novella of Lilith which is out on Kindle . I live in the Eastern Woodlands where I try to incorporate nature into my many writing projects. We are so in danger of losing that link to our very planet!
