According to Buddha

If you permit your thoughts to dwell on evil you yourself will become ugly. Look only for the good in everything so you absorb the quality of beauty.

i never done good things
i never done bad things
i never did anything out of the blue,
want an axe to break the ice
wanna come down right now
my mama said, “to get things done you’d better not mess with major tom.”

will you remember the flowers in my hand?
will you remember my hair?

the world is not waiting out there.

According to Buddha

Wallowing is a “bottomless pit” of pain, because we generate pain in response to pain. It’s bottomless because there’s no end to that. But this wallowing is not necessary. “When a well-taught noble disciple is afflicted by painful bodily feelings,” the Buddha says, “she will not worry nor grieve and lament, she will not beat her breast and weep, nor will she be distraught.” And thus she becomes one “who can withstand the bottomless pit and has gained a foothold in it.”

According to Buddha

If there is a lot of energy coursing through the body, imagine the body as a wide container where the energy is allowed to bounce around like a ping pong ball. Accepting it like this can take away the extra agitation of fighting the restlessness.

i heard that you missed your connecting flight
to the Blue Ridge Mountains, over near Tennessee
you’re ever welcome with me anytime you like
let’s drive to the countryside, leave behind some green-eyed look-alikes
so no one gets worried, no

 out from my window across from the city
i have what’s considered a good view
two blocks from the subway, three from the fountain
where i walk to break in new shoes
she stands on the sidewalk just waving at taxis
like horses in parades in passing
i ask where she’s headed she tells me,
Ohio, i’ve not seen my mother in ages
it’s been a long time, a real long time.

smallest number whose 4th power is equal to the sum of four other 4th powers

According to Buddha

The appearance of “time” is little more than a trick of memory. You can easily discern this for yourself: simply figure out what it is you consider “the past” and “the future.” You will discover that it is nothing but thoughts–nothing but memories, nothing but expectations, nothing but mental commentary. It’s “all in your head,” so to speak. There’s really no such thing as time. There is really only Now–an eternally present Present with no beginning and no ending. Everything is completely new, distinct, and original every instant, with no real “change” or “motion” at all.

maybe the sun’s light will be dim
and it won’t matter anyhow.
i won’t be blinded by the light.
i’m old enough to face the dawn.

According to Buddha

This body is not me; I am not caught in this body, I am life without boundaries, I have never been born and I have never died. Over there the wide ocean and the sky with many galaxies. All manifests from the basis of consciousness. Since beginningless time I have always been free. Birth and death are only a door through which we go in and out. Birth and death are only a game of hide-and-seek. So smile to me and take my hand and wave good-bye. Tomorrow we shall meet again or even before. We shall always be meeting again at the true source, Always meeting again on the myriad paths of life.

In Alberta, Art, Buddhist philosophical concepts, Canada, colour photography, Edmonton, freedom, Hedy Bach Photography, iPhoneography, Learning, music words, peace, Photography on 2015/04/01 at 07:00

According to Buddha

According to the logic of that old, deluded world, freedom means being at liberty to come and go as we please. Such a definition of freedom is often very useful to an oppressive regime. That is because freedom, if so defined, becomes something that can then be taken away. Tsunesaburo Makiguchi said no when offered his freedom because the offer itself was deluded. His captors, who thought they were free but in reality were the “thought prisoners” of an oppressive government and the victims of a degraded religious culture that had long since capitulated on the matter of basic human rights, therefore had nothing to offer him. He was free already.
