“When you dig a well, there's no sign of water until you reach it, only rocks and dirt to move out of the way. You have removed enough; soon the pure water will flow," said Buddha.”

Deepak Chopra
 

When the Buddha started to wander around India shortly after his enlightenment, he encountered several men who recognized him to be a very extraordinary being. They asked him:

"Are you a God?"

"No," he replied.

"Are you a reincarnation of God?"

"No," he replied.

"Are you a wizard, then?" "No."

"Well, are you a man?" "No."

"So what are you?" They asked, being very perplexed. 

Buddha simply replied:

"I am awake."

Buddha means “the awakened one.”

How to awaken is all he taught.

Buddha : Lotus in hand image of buddha

“To awaken is to learn the art of living; to master the mind and bring it back to the reality of the present moment; to unite mind, body and reality. To awaken is to bring the reality of the present moment to life; to be mindful and aware of the present moment, to truly live the present moment."

~Buddhist teaching

Buddha : The golden Buddha statue isolate on white background.“No one saves us but ourselves.No one can and no one may.We ourselves must walk the path.”-Siddhartha Gautama,Sayings of Buddha

 Buddha : lotus flower blooming P.S:

Every bud chooses its own good time to blossom.

Everyone “awakens” when one chooses to do so……if ….one chooses to do so.

Namaste,
Bhagya
