According to Buddha

This is how we love, Buddha-style:
impartial to all, free from excessive attachment or false hope and expectation;
accepting, tolerant, and forgiving.
Buddhist nonattachment doesn’t imply complacence or indifference, or not having committed relationships or being passionately engaged with society, but rather has to do with our effort to defy change and resist the fact of impermanence and our mortality. By holding on to that which in any case is forever slipping through our fingers, we just get rope burn.

they, said some day you’ll find
all who love are blind
when your heart’s on fire
you must realize
smoke gets in your eyes

  1. Just beautiful, Hedy. You really spent some time in Baltimore. ☺ Van

  2. Great set, Hedy…The steam rising up really caught my eye.

  3. great series! moments frozen in time.. ..and a great idea with the steam! 🙂 Like that. Have a nice day!

    • but not freezing at all…humid and hot…it’s unlike the streets of Edmonton ☺️ thanks Markus and yes today is a holiday for Canada’s 148th birthday!

      • ..of course, Hedy, ..not literally frozen .. 🙂 ..but you captured it for us!
        All the best for your great CANADIANS!!! …Hedy, not kidding and not paying less respect to any other nation… ..but ALL canadians I met in my life where great, down to earth, hearty and nice people!!! Cheers to you all!! STAY AS YOU ARE !!!
        EH, cheers to you all, Markus

  4. Love it. So true. The closest I see to this kind of love is the one one gets from animals. I rarely see it in humans.
    TheUberbook.com is building a ‘love’ gallery I have recommended this post. Check out the LIFE STUFF galleries, request an add via the writers form if you’d like this post to be on there. You get my vote although I don’t have a say on whether you are eventually added.

    • thanks kindly Ed and yes I agree i know that unconditional love from my critters and yes often rare in ‘beings’ but possible ☺️ and thank you for the connection I will look and check it out for sure! smiles ~ hedy 😀

    ‘nonattachment’ 🙂
