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.

are you a dancer in this world?
do you walk the sundance of life?
but all you wanted was to be…free
what i wanted was to be…me

Royal Alberta Museum ~ Edmonton ~ March 2015

  1. this great images go hand in hand with your words.

  2. ‘That is because freedom, if so defined, becomes something that can then be taken away.’
    how true.

  3. Beautiful photos ~ and the take on freedom is refreshing, as there are too many elements in this world disguised as ‘freedoms’. True freedom is what we all aspire to, although some may not realize this ~

    • nothing is free…but yes i/we try 😀 thanks Randall for your kind words and time to look at my posts…appreciated 😀 compose a happy day!

  4. Beautiful photos…and dance
