According to Buddha

[Spiritually speaking]…everything that one wants, aspires to, and needs is ever-present, accessible here and now – for those with eyes to see.

i can make peace on earth
with my own two hands
i can clean up the earth
with my own two hands
i can reach out to you
with my own two hands
with my own
with my own two hands

a walk around the block ~ Cercado de Lima, Peru ~ August 2019

 

 

  1. Very nice photos of the Cercado de Lima. I am Peruvian and I live in Chile today. Bring memories ..
    I really liked your poem. We are able to feel the world in our hands if we want to do it.

    • Thank you kindly Macalder ☺️ and I appreciate you saying that as I’m outsider 🤓 it was an adventure to see Lima 😄 ahhhh I use the words of music these words are from Ben Harper 💙 and I agree “We are able to feel the world in our hands if we want to do it.”

      I’m attaching my intentions of my sloppy blog here

      compose a beautiful day ~ smiles hedy 😄☺️

  2. These are really nice street shots, Hedy. I enjoyed them. Have a wonderful week. Cheers!

  3. Excellent photos. The first one is my favorite though. I really like how the people stand there together without actually standing together.

  4. Great captures Hedy and a beautiful message!!!

  5. Lovely words and great photos Hedy.

  6. I like the third image because of the question it leaves unanswered.
    Quote: “…everything that one wants, aspires to, and needs is ever-present, accessible here and now – for those with eyes to see.” I seriously question that statement as it is constantly being denied by observation and the reality of millions of people caught in the throes of violence, war, destitution, famine and natural disasters. What does the mother who is watching her baby die of starvation need and want most? Where does she look for it? Hm.

    • ahhhhhh Sha’Tara 🤓 yes I deleted the context of Surya Das his words began…”spiritually speaking”…as a sloppy buddhist I trouble words of the Buddhas…who they are etc etc…and I do gravitate to certain authors words and lines of of their paragraphs…I don’t always know their work deeply….other than it is in that moment for me a connection to my images…my 4th image of a hand off…caught my eye…and the gaze of others…a feeling…

      in relation to an image of a dying child with a mother watching…for me I feel different feelings…I don’t know what humans see or don’t see…I know I miss a lot…I choose to not/look…and these days I’ve been reading Surya Das 🤓 an “American lama in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition”🧐🤓…and then I read his words “one of my best friends was killed at Kent State when the National Guard shot the students protesting the secret bombings in Cambodia in 1970. She was 19 and that turned my head around.” …I was reading his work in Lima…feeling outsider…

      so many answered wonders and questions…I appreciate your thinking and comments Sha’Tara…sending peace ☮️ and a smile of course 🙂

  7. Another wonderful series. I love the way you capture the essence of a place.
    Alison

    • ☺️😄🙏 always appreciated Alison…I had fun moments…I felt outsider so I’m glad you say this…I have many wonders…always grateful to have new experiences 🤓☺️

  8. i so love the first photo.
    feels like a painting.

    • Thank you Gavin I appreciate you saying ☺️ I also love looking at paintings …my mother is/was a painter all her life. 😄 have a creative day ~ smiles hedy 🙂🙃🤗

  9. Great choice again. Photos, text and music!

  10. An interesting walk around a grey block. Some of the light reminds me of Bogotá in the Centre. It can be quite grey too.
    Liked the lovely smile on the young woman in the 2nd pic.
