according to Buddha

Happiness or sorrow- whatever befalls you, walk on untouched, unattached.

Edmonton, Alberta. ~ 20-01-13

  1. Those first two images are fabulous. The last image seems the antithesis of the opening quote.

    • thanks Mobius…and yes i am intentional with acknowledging my privilege…i think deeply about meaningful work in our culture…and the man who collects my/the empty bottles in our neighborhood…and how i drive by…i have shelter from the cold…i think about ideas of happiness/sorrow…and how we need both to know…thanks for making my thoughts linger… appreciate it.

  2. Beautiful!

  3. Incredible images. Yeah, I see your reflection in the third one 🙂 Nice!

    • thanks kindly…funny what pops into the image…the unintended…yes the shadow aspect…for some ‘ego’. As Jung also believed that “in spite of its function as a reservoir for human darkness—or perhaps because of this—the shadow is the seat of creativity.”; so that for some, it may be, ‘the dark side of his being, his sinister shadow…represents the true spirit of life as against the arid scholar’…

      who knows? 😀

  4. i don’t know about the untouched… unattached… not even sloppy for me i think

    • oh i am touched as i see the man cycling again today…in -25…i do wonder about my place…but perhaps, missing exactly what you saying here Olive…that’s the sloppy part of me 😉

  5. Sometimes it isn’t that easy to do, especially if there is a potential threat. After all, if our instincts are working properly, we will feel that threat and want to do something about it. I’m sure you’ll agree with that premise, sloppy! Otherwise, I have no problem with detachment, comes easily. 😉 The ice/frost pix are superb!

    • thanks janina…still i wonder about artificial divisions…and what counts as ‘work’ and who is used to do what work…and as i wander in the frosty snowy days here…i think about basic needs to survive here in Edmonton…as i am not afraid of this man…i have no reason to be…we have nodded and smiled at each other as he has gathered empties from me as well…it is me who makes the assumptions about his life…who knows…i think about work and homelessness…

      appreciate your comments and compliment…thanks kindly.

  6. Great post. Love the detail and a great scene in Edmonton! (when I lived in Canada I was a big Oilers fan!!)

  7. These are some incredible images on this post as well as several others. I am a follower of Buddhist principles, and I really like you quotes on how to live the enlightened life. I am also a digital artist. I would love for you to stop by my blog. I will follow yours and check out more of your work
    Namaste
    Walter

    • thanks kindly Walter for taking time to stop by my blog…i will stop by your blog in the next couple of days…i promise you that!

      compose a wonderful day Walter 😀
