According to Buddha

Duality is the real root of our suffering and of all our conflicts. All our concepts and beliefs, no matter how profound they may seem, are like nets which trap us in dualism. When we discover our limits we have to try to overcome them, untying ourselves from whatever type of religious, political, or social conviction may contain us. We have to abandon such concepts as ‘enlightenment’, ‘the nature of the mind’, and so on, until we no longer neglect to integrate our knowledge with our actual existence.

and oh, how our glory may fade
fade, well, at least we’ve learned
some things along the way

and we can see life hand in hand
the green, the blue, the rock, the sand
and in our time and in our land, we’ll savour every day

Fedorah Ukranian Orthodox Church + school + Our Lady of Mount Carmelin the locality of Fedorah, Alberta ~ June 2019

  1. A beautiful weathered old building. Have a good week, Hedy. Enjoy the summer weather. Cheers

    • full days…started a little garden…and yes I love these old school houses…and the his/hestories of church in Alberta schooling always fascinating to me 🤓☺️💫 hope you’re week is going well…end of term…summer break? have a happy day ~ smiles hedy ☺️

  2. Food for thought, thoughts for food?

  3. i so love paolo nutini, special meaning for me at the moment. thank you, hedy. and the photos sublime, as always …

  4. Love these older buildings on the prairies

  5. The image of the closed gate is very intense – really well done, Hedy! I like the whole series, especially the third photo with the centered building. Wonderful. 🙂

    • thank you Lynn 🙂🤓…sort of a strange place/energy…I always have wonders about old school houses…couldn’t find a lot on this…I’ve had Residential schools in my mind 😌 the erasure adds to intense times 🤓 knowing our last federally operated residential school closed in 1996…and the lasting effects…

  6. ‘Duality is the real root of our suffering and of all our conflicts’

    I so agree.
    I like the first photo.

    • Thank you kindly Gavin…little boxes…yup…and I appreciate you saying…big hugs over the pond ~ have a joyful day 🙃🙂💫 smiles hedy

  7. Heavy clasp on gates, (in my mind)
    bring together solidly,the conflicts
    that may arise during these transitions.
    Delicate, yet perfect illustrations of this matter.
    Fabulous photos. Have a delicious day Hedy.

    • I will off to help a foot friend hang an exhibition 🤓

      I appreciate your wise words Eddie…in my minds eye it is a heavy clasp as well…you know ☺️✌️ have a joyful day in your garden ~ smiles hedy ☺️

  8. nice, hedy!
    nature offering a photogenic
    lesson on non-duality 🙂

  9. I love the way you’ve captured the essence of this place – the wide open space, and a sense of history. That opening shot of the gate is quite wonderful.

  10. Lovely work, Hedy. ❤ Wishing you a wonderful summer. 🙂

  11. Hi Miss Hedy … that last shot is special! What about those clouds … 🙂👏

  12. Copied your words to my Hedy word file for further meditation.
    🙂
    Not an easy one(s) to figure. I will peruse over it later.
    Dankje.

    • I don’t have it figured out so I’m just digesting what I read with all the stuff in my hedy head Brian…I do enjoy falling into different Buddhas writings…I don’t know… 🤷‍♀️ it makes sense to me in the moment…

      je bent zo welkom, beste Brian ☺️🙃🙂🤗
