Taking Refuge.

The act of taking refuge can be seen as an expression of 'Right View'/
'Right aspiration'.
The vocal act of taking refuge can be seen as 'Right Speech'.
Choosing to take Refuge can be seen as 'Right Action'.
When I think deeply about 'Taking Refuge' I can fit it entirely into the Eightfold Path.
Just my personal thoughts

I'm going to look on e-bay tomorrow for a new Raft, mine is on the verge of sinking and I still need one


Just take a few moments and master the art of walking on water. Then you won't need any raft whatsoever.
