I awaken under this pine tree and it was my Bodhi tree in the Atsion Wharton State Forest. Like the Buddha it became clear to me the connection to all things and the perfection in nature. I returned to recaptured the moment. To answer your question, I know you one. I didn’t do what the Buddha did, meditated without moving from his seat for seven weeks (49 days) under this tree.
What I did learn from the experience was that the trees take care of the birds, by providing food and shelter for them. I was able to see this this winter at this location.
I wonder if I did what the Buddha did I wonder what would have happened. I still have time. Maybe just 14 days just like Eckhart Tolle the spiritual teacher and best-selling author.
