According to Buddha

Spend less, and have more, by doing away with luxurious habits. From your earnings put aside as much as possible, so that you can live partially on the interest from your savings, without having to dip into the capital.

my bonnie lies over the sea.
well my bonnie lies over the ocean.

random streets in St. Pauli and Rotherbaum, Hamburg, Germany ~ August 2018

  1. great idea to point out the contrasts of this two neighborhoods. When I look at your images it seems for me that all the captures you took at Rotherbaum got this aura of a clean silence, whereas the St. Pauli captures are filled with a noisy rush. I know it sounds strange that images convey sounds, but your photos make me hear like that.
    smiles to bonnie over the ocean 🙂 🙂 🙂

    • all cities have these stories that I’ve seen as an outsider Markus…Rotherbaum was very quiet and I rarely saw people…of course ppl cycling and some at the restaurants or bar…indeed a beautiful neighbourhood…the ppl on the streets of Hamburg that I saw have a different ‘look’ than our homeless here in etown…I will do a juxtaposition of life here between the two neighbourhoods…I see a difference in their eyes…also we have many more homeless ppl here compared to what I saw in Hamburg…smiles from snowy etown…☺️✌️🤓

  2. This is actually a quote from Paramahansa Yogananda (1893 – 1952), the founder of the Self-Realization Fellowship/Yogoda Satsanga Society of India. She was a Hindu and a Kriya Yoga practitioner. (The Art of Living, Paramahansa Yogananda, Yogoda Satsanga Society, 2015, ISBN 978-8189535285, paperback)
    The dominating contemporary idea is that one should procure as much money as possible or, for the smarter ones, as much as you need, to barter that for goods and services that you cannot provide by yourself.
    The ones, who earn not enough money to cover for their basic needs, are called poor. Those who earn more money than they need could be called rich.
    The latter condition is generally preferred and can be reached by two ways; either to increase your income till it covers your needs or by reducing your needs of acquisition till they’re surpassed by your income. Those people are defined by Alvin Toffler as prosumers ( Toffler, Alvin (1970). The Third Wave (1980) Bantam Books ISBN 0-553-24698-4). .

    • well thank you Urban for the connections I will look more as prosumers are “product and brand advocates,” who now significantly affect the success or failure of companies, products, and brands through their involvement on the social web…

      Paramahansa Yogananda published his autobiography in 1946 Autobiography of a Yogi , titled Autobiography of a Yogi…I love this book…have a good week ☺️💫✌️ smiles hedy

      • After being initially confused about the sexual identity of Yogananda, I finally made the effort to look it up; It’s a man although on the pictures he has a very ambivalent look. Sorry for the confusion.

        • seems there is a lot of sexual identity confusion these days…I wrote about androgyny in the 90’s…and well yes Yogananda’s visual appearance does embrace both masculine and feminine characteristics…to me…so there is no confusion it just is 🤓✌️☺️

  3. Wonderful photos and quote. A movement is afoot to get back to less, if we all could practice this and get away from consumerism our mother earth would be much happier.

    • yes Terry I keep on simplifying…thinning out and leave a lighter footprint… I decided to stop buying clothes for one year a few years ago that was a changing experience for me…smiles from snowy etown…❄️✌️💫☺️

      • Keep warm my friend, I downsized a lot in my move. From a big house to just a 24′ moving van. Many things were left for my Daughter and the 2 grandchildren. But I seem to be filling up the new house with things, LOL.

  4. Excellent collection.

  5. The Buddha really said that? Capitalism and Buddhism seem incongruent.

  6. Enjoy the simple things in life it pays a lot of divident, have a great day Hedy 😊 🙏 🌟

  7. Interesting series.

  8. Buddha & hedy
    for my bankers 🙂

  9. I like that first “homeless” shot a lot, Hedy….and the maxim at the top, with these images of grand homes and the homeless, well, it’s a thought-provoking match.
    And if I ever figure out where your titles come from (outer space?) then you can give me a medal. 😉

    • well I think all cities have these spaces and places…here in etown I feel it is harsher…people eye’s look dead…as an outsider in Hamburg I felt the homeless looked like they were going to move or relocate…luggage and furniture…even when they saw me photographing no one talked to me…albeit I worked quietly and discreetly as I was on my own walking…there was a different feeling to me…

      jajajajaja my titles can be a trickiest part of composing my posts…it’s all about the number…I still dislike numbers, just saying 🤓❤️ have a happy day Lynn!

  10. Uh oh, I noticed your link (Springer) above and started to go down the wormhole….your fault Hedy!!
    But I found an interesting article – haven’t read it yet – “Feeding the Hungry Spirits – a Socially Engaged Buddhist Response to the Distortion of Trauma” — Julianne Funk & Jurgen Jian Lembke. You might be interested too…

  11. …………………………💚💚💚💚

  12. My Bonnie is quite possibly the first English song I ever learned…
    My parents told me that everyone in India (Pakistan) knew the song after the war.
    And all nationalities would sing it in unisson at the club in the evening.
    🙂
