The Intention of the site: Go With the Flow




Thank you sincerely for stopping by.  Development of the site is in the early stages, and the purpose of this article is to outline the intention of BigBeautifulBuddha.com.

Funny picture of Buddha's head placed on a baby's body.

Although in the infant stages, the intention has been set, and is very clear!

If you’re taking the time to read this, I appreciate you, and your willingness to be open minded to my inspirational words.  Ultimately, if given the chance, I’d like to think you may be able to open your heart as well, and help spread the love. After all, the heart is what bridges us individually, and collectively.

I’ve always been a man with a lot of passion, and I’m not afraid to admit that often times it was misdirected. One passion that has remained as a constant, however, through the obstacles, distractions, and temptations of life, is that of LOVE. The very object, state, concept that we all naturally desire. Love truly is the answer, and ultimately what has propelled this site into existence.

The last several years have been quite transformational on many levels: internally, externally, spiritually, and on many more sub-levels within each.  An intention was set to grow, and cultivate more of what was truly wanted out of life.  Mainly in the areas of spirituality, consciousness, mindfulness, peace of mind, compassion, personal freedom, and self-love.

Through this transformational period, a new passion, joy, and excitement for life has spawned. I can honestly say that I love my life, and the intention is to share this love through inspirational stories, and inspirational words.

Go with the flow

An important component of this transformation has been honoring my innate desire to “go with the flow”.  The flow being that which moves, inspires, and guides us. Learning to deeply trust, attune to, and go with the flow is exactly what has brought this site into existence.  My ultimate hope, purpose, & intention of this creation is to effect others positively, on one level or another, no matter how profound, or how subtle.  Deeply moving experiences, insights, synchronicity, and intuition have directed me to this, and I’m grateful for this direction.


The site is in it’s very infant stages.  But please rest assured that as inspiration continues to flow through, you will find many evolutions in design & content.  I will be updating as often as inspiration allows, which I have a feeling will be quite often.  This is precisely what is referred to when stating that the intention is to go with the flow.  Doing so has served me very well, and brought me to this point, why stop now?  At times, I’m sure I’ll be cranking out lots of new inspirational stories.   There may also be some lulls along the way, as the flow guides me in other directions.

You’ll find a wide range of topics likely to include, but not limited to: love, true love, marriage, soulmates, parenting, communication, spirituality, follow your heart, society, fame, success, intelligent design, compassion, consciousness, unity, art, music, peace of mind, divinity, synchronicity, maybe even some politics (yikes!).

Please bare in mind that while the design is simple, and the content is minimal, at the time of this writing, there are plenty of articles, as well as design changes to come!!  My hope is that there will be a little something that everybody can benefit from.

Meanwhile feel free to check me out on facebook: Burke Budha Coleman where I’m constantly sharing, on a more personal, daily level, my experiences of love, life, family, and distinct observations & musings, for better or worse.  Please subscribe so that you can be notified of new content, check back often, or get in touch through facebook., and you’ll one day say that you knew this crazy, oversized, quasi hippy who is known as Buddha, before the rest of the world caught on.

    Hey mystic,

    I’m from PSE.. decided to check your site out. If you ever need any coding help, feel free to message me on PSE or shoot me an email. Would love to help.

      Hey Ryan.. thanks man! appreciate you stopping by, and offering that.. not sure how much intensive coding I’ll be doing as I’m hoping wordpress handles most of what I need, and I can fumble my way around basic HTML-CSS stuff, but that’s about it. I’ll definitely keep you in mind should it ever arise. Maybe you can help me with design tweaks I want to make, CSS, etc.. Meanwhile as I start adding content, if you like what you see, come back, and share. Thanks again! :)

    So Buddhists do not believe that gluttony is a sin? Order a salad every once in a while, you sloppy bastard.

    1. Buddha

      1.) i’m not a buddhist… 2.) i love salad… 3.) sin is a christian concept… 4.) i don’t follow any doctrines other than my own, and my doctrine tells me that ridiculously good food belongs in my belly… 5.) i still have love for you even though Jesus is probably rolling over in his grave… welcome to my blog!

      “the men who hold high places, must be the ones who start.. to mold a new reality, closer to the heart” … it’s all about living from the heart :) … matter of fact i’m putting finishing touches on an article about this very subject

    Hey there, just landed on your blog after accidentally coming through here..but I love the theme that you use, it is quite catchy, can you tell me what the name of the theme is?

    1. Buddha

      ya know, it’s been slow around here since I haven’t added new content in a little while, and the spam comments are getting a little old, so i’m gonna have some fun with this one.. I really hope this is a spam bot considering the name of the theme is listed in the bottom right corner, just like almost every other wordpress site.. I’m kind of amazed at the generic comments left by spam bots, I would be very worried if I were you, hahaha.. congratulations your comment made it through due to my sheer boredom!

      Posted on Oh so true! I’ve been frustrated many times wrkoing for hours, banging my head against the keyboard because I’ve stepped outside that feeling of flow. It’s times like that when I really understand the importance of stepping back from a project and letting my self CHILL OUT! Nice Kai!

      1. Buddha

        Nice addition to the conversation. Appreciate your comment :)

        When I used to work a 40 hour per week office job, I would make it a point every single day to go outside and soak in the beauty of the day for at least 15 minutes every day, and often times I would go take a walk for my entire lunch hour. It helps to be in Southern California :)

        The last “job” I held, I would take small breaks and meditate by the fountain that was out front at the commercial building our office was in. My manager literally said “you trip me out man, I’ve never met anybody like you”.

        It’s important that we stay in our flow, and don’t get too frayed and fried by the daily grind of life. Thanks again for stopping by.

    [...] To summarize, I don’t think I’m any more special than anybody else, but I will say that I do believe I have a very clear grasp on who I really am. I’ve discovered that who I AM is spirit; love.  By going with my flow, following my intuition, my inner guide, and doing what felt true & right at my core, I learned this about myself.  I did this in the face of fear, in the face of judgement, mis-perception, sometimes even persecution from others, and it has taught me to always trust this flow.  I also pushed my wife to face her deepest fears & insecurities, knowing in my heart, following my intuition, that this is what she needed as well.  As a result, she has transcended to higher levels of surpassing & leaving old fears behind.  We’re more in tune than we’ve ever been, and have been provided countless lessons about ourselves & the purpose of our marriage.  All of this, because I decided to go with the flow.
