boiling point of water at sea level

according to Buddha

As a water bead on a lotus leaf, as water on a red lily, does not adhere, so the sage does not adhere to the seen, the heard, or the sensed.

come here, i’m gonna smear another color over you
get out of bed, you little sleepy head
your black and white needs a little bit of red

according to Buddha

A man is not called wise because he talks and talks again; but if he is peaceful, loving and fearless then he is in truth called wise.

according to Buddha

Breathing in, I calm body and mind. Breathing out, I smile. Dwelling in the present moment I know this is the only moment.

my mind is full bursting over
with all these things i can’t remember
flowers melting up into the sky…hear my heart where our love collides…we hear the songs we found in the times we lost our way…

according to Buddha

Whether you are guided by your emotions or guided by your intellect, it leads to despair because it leads nowhere.  But you realize that love is not pleasure, love is not desire. You know what pleasure is?  When you look at something or when you have a feeling, to think about that feeling, to dwell…

oh, i forget to mention the bicycle is a good invention…

according to Buddha

The wise ones fashioned speech with their thought, sifting it as grain is sifted through a sieve.

this voice

…it is calling

get out of that box…

…finish your freak…

according to Buddha

You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.

what’s wrong with that

here i go again….

unloading and reloading the dishwasher

listening to silly little love songs

but i look around me and i see it is so…

it isn’t silly at all…

…load…unload…

…repeat…

and what’s wrong with that….

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…
