According to Buddha

We should pattern our life by a triangular guide: calmness and sweetness are the two sides; the base is happiness. Every day, one should remind him/herself: ” I am a princess of peace, sitting on the throne of poise, directing my kingdom of activity.” Whether one acts quickly or slowly, in solitude or in the busy marts of wo/men, her center should be peaceful, poised.

downtown Geneva, Switzerland ~ April 2018

  1. beautiful read.

  2. Good words and lovely images (as usual). 🙂

  3. I used to drink heavily to be peaceful and poised, it didn’t work out well.

    • ahhhhh yes Mike alcohol can be a nasty addiction…i’ve witnessed…and for some it didn’t work well…early deaths and the loved ones left behind suffer…so yes we must choose our habits carefully…sending you all good things for peace, joy and fun! smiles hedy 😀

  4. Switzerland is such a magical country.

    • i’d love to see the mountains here…but yes Geneva is a interesting place for sure…lots of people 😀 i love this part for sure…smiles Terry have a wonderful week…3 more months and you’re on your way…we’ll stay in touch to see if we can connect in Jasper 😀

      • Yes definitely, it would be nice to meet up. And the mountains around Lauterbrunnen are lovely if you get the chance to visit there.

        • no not this time Terry…but yes i’d love to get up there one day…it feels so fresh here…have a wonderful day dear Terry 😀

  5. I was going to say this looks like a different neighborhood, but I see it’s a different country! Great street images, Hedy. Have a great week! Cheers

    • oh yes Chris so nice to be away seeing some green and feeling some warmth…it’s an adventure for sure…thank you! smiles over the pond 😀 have a wonderful week too ^_^ 😀

  6. First, hey! Where’d you go? I guess to Europe, good for you. Second, that’s an interesting “quote” although I suspect they’re not quotes, and wonder how big a part you’re playing up there at the top of the post… 🙂 In any case, it goes very nicely with the images, altogether a nice slice of life. Have fun Hedy!

    • yes Geneva first now to Portugal…feelings of gratitude 😀 they are quotes and yes i change them a tad if i feel it’s needed in a sloppy way…but mostly i choose the words of Buddhas as i make meaning of what i’m experiencing in the moment…i’ve learned a lot along the way from reading more and wider…as i am a sloppy buddhist 😀 yes i’m having fun…i love Europe…sending joy over the pond Lynn 😀

      • I’m so glad you’re traveling and having a great time….plus, I bet it’s warmer there (especially in Portugal!) than E’town! You’ll get to have two Springs.

        • it’s just so nice to have a break after all the family stuff and my life over these couple of years…i’m grateful ^_^ …and i love this “having 2 springs”…you’re right Lynn it will be that way as there is still snow in Alberta…it’s lovely here warmer and greener…now in Porto so cool ~ thank you dear Lynn hugs over the pond 😀

  7. Are you in Geneva now? How nice. Must feel like summer. 😉
    Enjoy your trip Hedy.
    A bientôt

  8. And on another sad note. I heard about the terrible accident in Saskatchewan. So sad when young people die early. Feels like such a waste. Of hope and illusions. May they rest in peace. The worst ordeal is for their families. May they find peace.

    • yes such sad news for sure and a hard story to live for the loved ones left behind…as my friend wrote today…”I’d love to capture the anguish and suffering of all those saddened by the loss of so many from Humboldt Saskatchewan, bottle it and use its essence to spread the same intensity over the fate of so many others around the world, Rohingyas, Syrians, Palestinians, South Sudanians. Maybe we could use that emotion to apply huge pressure to politicians who feel it is fine to spend 57% of their budget on Military and instruments of war, but too much to give a hand up to the poorest of their citizens.” and yes sudden death is always most difficult…i send light and love…but here is where some Buddhist thinking helps me through…it’s all so sad…find the joyful moments in each of our days…hugs Brian 😀

      • B-Hugs back. i must confess I sometimes find it hard to find the small joy of the day. (Well, grandbaby Gonzalo and parents came for sunday lunch at home yesterday. That was fun) 🙂
        (Thank you for reminding me, Hedy)

        • yes babies and critters are the best to me…enjoy Gonzalo i’m sure he puts a huge smile on your face…one of my yoga teachers taught us to always lift the corners of our mouth to our ears before we get out of bed…i liked that…i’m a happy person by nature and i’m highly sensitive so that’s where my yoga practice assists me not being too jaded 😀 more hugs to you Brian…compose a happy day…play!

          • Baby G. just left. He came for lunch with his mother. He really is… fun. 🙂
            I will try to remember lifting the corners of my mouth before getting out of bed. Though it may take me a while in the morning. 😉

          • before you step out of bed…every day…try you will see 😀

          • Will do. Forgot to this morning, but I had a scheduled call with IRS at 8Am. 🙁

          • even more reason to lift those corners 😀

          • I know, I know. It seems I’m in a rash when nothing works. Weird. Never really happened to me before… Maybe I should pack up and go back to Asia…

          • follow your heart Brian….who knows…i don’t know either 😀

          • You are right. One doesn’t know. I did follow my heart in December when I packed the whole family to rejoin with our grieving daughter in Asia. And it was fabulous for all. 🙂
            Next step? Don’t know.

          • hugs for you all and your dear daughter….being with loved ones matters though our mourning time…and I’ve experienced those surprise moments of grief from a song, a word, a smell and of dreams…the dead live on in our hearts…I’ve also learned the difference of witnessing a knowing of death arriving and sudden death…both are different…and both feel very different…we need to talk about death as we like birth…I’ve learned about changes in the discourse starting in the 70’s….so yes follow your heart Brian and dance and hold each other close…BIG hugs for a joyful day ~ 💫❤️

  9. that is a great series again… …I love that thrill and opposition in that images… …there is wonderful light, you can feel the warmth… …but the faces seems a bit rushed.. …great!
    spring smiles over the pond 🙂 🙂

  10. Great photos Hedy … 😃

  11. Peaceful and poised, peaceful and poised
