According to Buddha

If you touch the nature of interbeing, you don’t try to run away from suffering anymore. Instead you try to embrace your suffering. You look deeply into it to understand its nature and learn how to make good use of suffering to produce happiness.

sometimes you got to take a stand
just because you think you can
you got to run

Bison ~ Elk Island National ParkYellowhead Highway ~ October 2019

  1. Great bison Hedy, have a nice day!!!

  2. Easier said than done!

    • I know Mike…those Buddha’s make some things sound so simple 🤓 it’s hard work 💪so have a creative day ~ sending you joy and smiles Hedy 😀

  3. Great photos, Hedy! He seems more than a little intimidating. Kudos for taking the shot!

    • I wasn’t expecting him to charge forward 🙄 urban human 😌 I was looking out of the roof top…my heart was pounding 😳😨 I’m not sure how people hike there with their dogs…thanks for your comment Michael they are amazing critters to me.

  4. Hmmm – I’d be a tad bit nervous making that last image. Such majestic animals. Have a great day, Hedy. Cheers!

  5. ‘How to make good use of suffering to produce happiness’
    First and foremost, acceptance.
    I am in a great classroom called ‘life’.
    It includes suffering and things that may not seem ‘right’ to me.
    They are meant as lessons. These lessons of life will never end.
    Am I happy? Everyday! Sending good cheer and happiness to you!

  6. Hmmm, funny looking cows you got there. Ours tend to be somewhat more docile. Great shots Hedy!

    • 😂😂😂 Peter thank you for your comments ☺️🙃 appreciated and apologies for my delayed response here 🤦‍♀️ have a joyful day ~ smiles from snow ❄️ etown ☺️

  7. awesome shots of a bison!!!!

  8. Amazing images.
    You really captured the the presence of the bison.

  9. All my experiences good or bad have shaped the person I am. Great capture of the bison.

    • for sure…I’m who I am and I carry all my scars with me ☺️🤓 I love bison…and the power they have…happiness your way Terry ☺️🙃🙂 apologies for delayed response here 🤦‍♀️

  10. he looks a bit grumpy.

  11. Wow Hedy, these are fabulous!
    Alison

  12. Woah. Great shots, Hedy. 😳

  13. You made me smile with this one, Hedy – equating facing a charging bull with confronting one’s suffering. 🙂 The photographs are beautifully processed! 🙂

    • yes those Buddha’s ☺️🤓

      Dukkha (/ˈduːkə/; Pāli; Sanskrit: duḥkha) is an important Buddhist concept, commonly translated as “suffering”, “pain”, “unsatisfactoriness” or “stress”. It refers to the fundamental unsatisfactoriness and painfulness of mundane life.

      …I don’t know though Lynn…but I do love those Bison…I’m ever curious of them 🧐 hugs hedy 🤗🙃🙂

      • Translating dukkha as suffering in English is another bit of unsatisfactoriness. 😉 It’s good to remind ourselves that it’s more layered and subtle than just “suffering.” I don’t know about using suffering to produce happiness – I’m sure it can be done but I’m not sure if it needs to be a goal – but the impression remains that the “quote” and the photos are terrific together.

  14. A lovely sequence. I was relieved to hear you were photographing this from a rooftop? Looks like this beautiful animal was baiting you… A little saunter, the dip of a shoulder, and then CHARGE!!!! Probably that’s just how they play with one another. 🙂

    Michael

    • out of the car roof top 🤓 and yes he startled me…I’ve been here many times and that never happened before…it was a good message 🤓☺️ probably a teenager 🧐 have a peaceful day Michael ~ smiles hedy ☺️

  15. Impressive picture of a REAL bison. Not a 19th century engraving. Can you imagine when millions of them roamed the plains?
    I have read before to embrace suffering to produce happiness. That is a tough cookie. Haven’t found the way yet. I wish I had a magic wand. But I don’t. Thank you for your narratives and/in images.

  16. Wow Miss Hedy those shots are amazing! Handsome beast ..
    Still thinking about that quote ..
