according to Buddha

There is nothing so disobedient as an undisciplined mind, and there is nothing so obedient as a disciplined mind.

 

…as i listen to Echo and the Bunnymen

…i know horses give answers i didn’t know were questions…

bring on the dancing horses…where ever they may roam…bring on the headless horses…where ever they may roam…

According to Buddha

Meditate. Live purely. Be quiet. Do your work with mastery. Like the moon, come out from behind the clouds! Shine. 

on the other side

somewhere, behind the green door

i hear a whispering turn of words

‘the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence’

…imagine always…always…always greener…

i wonder how green the green grass is on the other side of the green door

According to Buddha

All wrong-doing arises because of mind. If mind is transformed can wrong-doing remain? 

i was drifting through my photographs from Amsterdam

reflecting on a week of worldviews

which left me wondering…

again,

everybody knows

an eye for an eye justice

is blind

and

two wrongs make a right

 is still wrong…

…now twice as wrong?

according to Buddha

In this world
Hate never yet dispelled hate.
Only love dispels hate.
This is the law,
Ancient and inexhaustible.

Senseless Violence or Zinloos Geweld

seems all violence is senseless…

probably, rarely meaningless…

when i took this photograph at the B.E.P cafe in Den Haag, Netherlands

i didn’t know of Jantje Hertogs or of his senseless murder

but i know senseless violence…

seeing his image…reading internet stories about his murder…

made me think about how our community acknowledges senseless violence...

…as Edmonton’s homicide rate has the distinction of being the nation’s worst

i can read…sad eerie cyber bits…that linger leaving haunting fragments

about Edmonton murder victims

telling snippets of missing pieces…these senselessness deaths,

make me so sad,

but in the end there is only love…

sending love and peace to…

according to Buddha


When you realize how perfect everything is you will tilt your head back and laugh at the sky

“The Prelude” – Tomas Tranströmer

Waking up is a jump, a skydive from the dream.

Free of the smothering whirl the traveler

sinks toward morning’s green zone.

Things start to flare. He perceives–in the trembling lark’s

position–the mighty tree-root systems

underground swinging lamps. But standing

above–in tropical profusion–is verdure, with

upraised arms, listening

to the rhythm of an invisible pumping station.

And he sinks toward summer, is lowered

into its blinding crater, down

through shafts of ages green with damp

quaking under the turbine of the sun.

So ceases this vertical flight through the moment, and the wings spread out

into the osprey’s repose over streaming water.

The Bronze Age trumpet’s

tone of exile

hovers over bottomlessness.

 

In the first hours of day consciousness can embrace the world

just as the hand grasps a sun-warm stone.

The traveler stands under the tree.

After the plunge through death’s whirling vortex, will

a great light unfurl over his head?

according to Buddha

Now may every living thing, young or old,

weak or strong, living near or far, known or

unknown, living or departed or yet unborn,

may every living thing be full of bliss.

bliss

bliss out; blissed

supreme happiness; blissness

utter joy; blissy

contentment; blissment

roads to eternal bliss….blissful…
