According to Buddha

Let your mind be as a floating cloud. Let your stillness be as a wooded glen. And sit up straight. You’ll never meet the Buddha with such rounded shoulders.

Montreal’s Jewish community ~ Outremont in Montréal, QC~ April 2019

  1. interesting post, good pictures… no one will get to the stage of ultimate realization if they practice anything short of the advise in the words at the opening part of the post

    • Thank you kindly Ihagh G. T. I appreciate your comments…yes that opening quote is ‘sloppy’…I searched Jewish Buddhist…and well I found a site with some humour link Sayings of the Jewish Buddha…normally I quote from ‘real’ Buddhists…and as I’m sure you know Buddhists have a lot to say 🤓☺️💫 compose a beautiful day ~ smiles hedy

      • thank you…I’m a Christian but have learnt a great deal from reading Buddhist books that Christians would kick against… have a wonderful week ahead

        • I’m a sloppy buddhist ☺️ I continue to love learning along the way…soon it’s time to curl up with a book…you have a joyful week too ✌️

  2. How interesting. We’ve never seen this side of Montreal. Oh well, something for another visit. I like their hats. Have a great week, Hedy. Cheers

    • that’s the best part of Montréal…lots of diverse cultures and beings and languages…it was a wonderful Saturday walk with my friend…always best to hang with the locals…we walked many miles that day…I loved it…have a happy day Chris ☺️🤓✌️

  3. Intriguing images, Hedy. It appears that you were really in close proximity to these gentlemen. I’m sure that takes courage! Wonderful street photos!

    • just walking down one block…looking…as an outsider 🧐 I’m always curious 🤓…I’m not even sure many of them even noticed me with my little black box 🧐 some of the younger ones…several men seemed hurried or deep in conversation…humans in groups are always a wonder for me 🙂🙃 have a creative day Micheal!

  4. Are you suggesting a new dress code for the Calgary Stampeders? May their mind be as a floating cloud!

    • hmmmm not sure Urban…I don’t know sport talk much 🧐 but I’ve heard rumblings (again) about etown calling the football team Eskimos…anyways today many spring floating clouds I love them ☺️✌️ sending you joy ~ smiles hedy

  5. intrigued by
    this moment
    in passing 🙂

    • yes…that’s all I’ve got moments…being present…I do love urban street life David…and of course reprieve in the woods…that time just after dark 🤓 have an intriguing day ~ many smiles hedy
