According to Buddha

It is not a pumping-in from the outside that gives wisdom; it is the power and extent of your inner receptivity that determines how much you can attain of true knowledge, and how rapidly. The man who has the power of receptivity quickly grasps everything. People with no receptivity may be exposed to the same experiences or information, yet not really see nor fully comprehend what is there. An intelligent man lives far ahead of the idiot. Your experiences bring wisdom according to the measure of the cup of your receptivity.

now the wind is high
and it howls through my eyes

QE2 ~ Alberta ~ random highway shots ~ March 2016.

  1. I love the big sky country! Nice collection of images, Hedy!

    • Thanks kindly Mic…yes this is sky country…one day I would love to live on some land in the middle of nowhere ☺️ thank you for your comment…have a happy day!

      • I am happy to live in a rural setting…but even at that a trip of just a few days to the high desert in the western U.S. is refreshing. Happy day to you too!

  2. Open sky, open mind – I like the way that physical space seems to give rise to psychological space. Your ethereal photographs here remind me of this idea, Hedy.

    • oh yes when i drive back from Calgary i love the space and the feeling of being able to be breathe…i love open spaces Hariod…compose a happy day ~ smiles hedy

  3. Beautiful! 🙂

  4. I like the prairie images you’ve used to illustrate this piece. I need big open landscapes like this to start me on the process of thinking a bit more deeply and getting things in perspective…. The problem i
    s that where I live by the Thames estuary, while we do have the wide open spaces of the marshes, we’re also close to some of the busiest roads in the UK so there’s always the noise of traffic in the background…

    • There is a lot of traffic on this highway…every day…many spaces to stop I feel I almost know the spaces to return to for the right light…there are spaces and places with no traffic…there is endless land here in Alberta…mostly I feel small….thanks kindly for your comment ~ smiles Hedy 😀

  5. Buddha was such a wise individual and you have taken such beautiful photos of beautiful landscapes. The randomness of nature has always been comforting to me.

    • Well no short of words those Buddhas ☺️ makes me think or reflect…go forward…being outside is best for me…I also love nature Terry…have a happy day!

  6. A hat trick of a post: I really like the Buddha quote, the image of wind howling through my eyes brings back my own prairie-plain windswept experiences; and I’m a fan of 5-pin bowling!

    • Well then fun Penny ☺️ thank you for your comment and yes it’s a lovely song as that image of wind howling through my eyes seems to happen 😳 bowling would be a fun photo experience…compose a happy walk Penny 😀 many smiles

  7. Those big Alberta skies put on such a great show, and you catch them so well Hedy!

    • yes Patti we have big skies…and i never get tired of them…although i feel like i’ve seen a lot of grey these past months…craving some delicious sunshine!

  8. Lovely images from the high plains, especially the last one.

  9. With the scenes you’ve painted here, the world is an unlimited amount of learning and of experiences, perfect with your quote “Your experiences bring wisdom according to the measure of the cup of your receptivity”

    • ahhhh that Buddha always has a lot to say, you know 😀 and the land teaches me a lot too…bigs smiles to you Randall ~ happy day hedy

  10. Endless Prairie skies. I hope to see some in early May.
