Unfortunately, my Buddhahood doesn’t always manifest itself, and I give myself a lot of grief and forget this fundamental fact.
So, I decided to send myself electronic reminders from my calendar. A few months ago, before Whizz bought himself a new Apple watch, the messages would appear twice daily on my Fitbit: ‘You are a Buddha’ they would say and give me a nice little buzz on the wrist.
Then I got the handmedown Apple watch. All singin’ all dancin’ with knobs on. Now my messages say ‘You are a Buddha until 10am’.
That, it has to be said, explains a lot.
