According to Buddha

Do you know what you are?
You are a manuscript of a divine letter.
You are a mirror reflecting a noble face. 
This universe is not outside of you. 
Look inside yourself;
everything that you want, 
you are already that.

you miss the world
the one you knew
the one where everything made sense
because you didn’t know the truth
that’s how it works
till the bottom drops out
and you learn
we’re all just hunters seeking solid ground

  1. Has the bottom fallen out of this world, yet? Interesting photos too.

    • I don’t know … some tell me differently so I remain ever hopeful but I do like Sara Bareilles song … was fitting my mood 🤓sending you joy Ashley ☺️💫🌷and thanks kindly for you comments 🙏 smiles hedy

  2. I knew it, I knew it all along!
    The translation wasn’t easy but
    it was evident in the tone.
    Brighter days are for bigger smiles
    with love, Eddie

    • For sure outside time soaking up sun ☀️😎 I have a little space that’s out of the wind and I can do my sloth like yoga there…and yes smiles with love back to you Eddie ❣️🌺🙏🤗❣️

  3. Again one of your wonderful series Hedy. You taught me thinking in series rather then individual photo’s.

    • Humble thank you Peter … well they are little hedy head visual narratives … I make meaning this way 🤓 have a joyful day 🙏🌷

  4. This is great. You post a song by Sara Bareilles and I get an ad for her video on my page. There is no privacy in any kind of social media these days. Oh yeah, good set of pictures.

    • I enjoyed finding Sara Bareilles…and no their is no privacy on these platforms…I’ve imagined a life with no phone 🥺😅😂 who knows these days …thanks for saying about the pictures it was a picturesque morning 💚☀️ have a good one Ray 🤗

      • It’s the reason we are considering no social media except to announce things. Posting pictures is a waste of time. You either know my work or you don’t. Constant posting won’t help. Unless I’ve got a new product like a book or a gallery show there is no point. I’ve been doing music management study this morning. Y’all should be happy that I didn’t write in THAT voice. 🙂 Peace. And, a fish taco.

        • Enjoy your music … and creating beauty Ray … sending you joy and a fish taco yummy I’ve been making some homemade taco shells through the pandemic delicious … so enjoy cooking these days … feelings of gratitude 🤓☺️🌷

          • We cook during the normal times. Now, cooking has gotten complex and yet at the same time simple. Many years ago, close to fifty, somebody gave me a tortilla press. It’s rattled around in a junk box for years. Now, it’s in weekly use. Funny, for a long while saying something like “fifty years” made me feel so damn old. In the past few days I’ve come to champion that. The script got flipped.

  5. wonderful reflections and words to live by in your words and pics Hedy💖💖

  6. ‘Till the bottom drops out’.. Nice shots as well; 2nd is my fav; pretty wild hair in the third.. 🙂 Bye!

    • I like the song too … and it’s a lace curtain I mixed it with my hair that is getting more and more white 👵🏻😂🤍bye Harrie 🌷 have a creative week!

  7. Wonderful, Hedy 😍that last photo is my favorite.

    • Thanks kindly Val I also am drawn to the antlers above the door 🤓 I must find out the meaning of this…hoping you’re having a joyful week ☀️🙏❣️

  8. These are lovely. There is something about the shadow of the tree on the side of the house. Like everything is just right and was made for that moment. Like old friends having coffee. I don’t know. It’s beautiful.

    The last photo I thought was upside down for a while, then I flipped my laptop and realized what a clever dance in perspectives that was! Love it! All of these images inspire the sensation of history and memory and presence for me.

    Michael

    • Your words are so eloquent Michael I appreciate what you say 🙏🤓I do like this time period home ☺️ sending you joy hedy thank you kindly 💫

  9. 19th Century Anarchism, like its Communist cousin, struggled with the impact of the Industrial revolution upon Western societies in the wake of the General European War, also referred to by historians as the Napoleonic Wars. All branches of Socialism sought to enfranchise the common working man. Similar to the later suffrage of women’s rights, and still later the opposition to the Jim Crow racial laws led by Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X.

    Political movements of enfranchisement require close comparison to other enfrancise revolts which opposed the existing status quo. The Aparheid situation in South Africa immediately comes to mind. A critical flaw in political science studies, a strong tendency to view Socialism – in all its many branches – divorced from all enfranchisement revolts in human history before and after. Such an obvious error in judgment comes under and ultimately defines political reactionarism and irrational mob violence.

    Reactionary commentators who have but a shallow understanding of political science attempt to define Anarchism as: the absence of domination of the State; the freedom of the individual; the struggle to secure freedom, framed in the context of social solidarity, sharing, and cooperative labor among the proletariat class. This simple and shallow definition fails to address the failure of vertical Courtroom justice systems whereby the State employs and pays the salary of the Judges, prosecuting attorneys, and police. All the voluminous books and discussions on Socialism universally fail to address the inherent corruption of vertical courtroom systems of justice.

    The inherit corruption of this type of legal system, by its very nature this type of vertical Court systems protect the interests, and wealth of the rich and powerful with extreme prejudice, and crushes the common man with disproportionate gulag prison incarcerations. The prophets of the T’NaCH denounced this form of legalized oppression and slavery of the poor the weak, specifically the widows and orphans.

    The story of the liberation of Israel from Egyptian slavery, it teaches a mussar יסודי that with freedom comes responsibility for both decisions and actions taken. A primary mussar theme that expresses itself throughout Torat Moshe. Freedom comes at a heavy price, free men must take and accept responsibility for their actions, especially when they impact the lives of other free persons. Anarchism by contrast prizes individualism. Alas man does not live in a vacuum. Individual man has the freedom to swing his fist till it reaches the tip of some other persons’ nose. From there on, freedom must balance with the equally important obligation: compensation for damages others suffer due to decisions and actions taken by a person who has freedom. Simply put, human society requires justice, equal and on par with the need for freedom.

    This most basic and fundamental requirement which all free people must have, the means to confront the opposing interests and persons whose skewed actions and behavior has caused others to endure suffering, shame, or damages. Freedom without the responsibility to uphold and maintain a fair and righteous judicial system, produces tyranny, oppression, and ultimately Civil War. The Torah, as the Constitutional יסוד upon which the Israeli Republic stands, its mussar of awareness of the finger of HaShem in and through the lives of the brit Cohen nation, it has no visions for international world order, and even less so for some abstract UN world governance. Freedom and Justice both thrive on a local domestic front. When foreign nations impose laws upon peoples of other nations, this abomination defines tyranny. The examples set by the European empires in the 17th, 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries forever defiles, and disgraces the dignity of man.

    Justice does not depend upon the constraints of religious morality nor the constraints of egoism self interest concerns and/or prejudices. Free Man has an obligation to compensate others for the consequences of damages, resultant of decisions or actions taken which adversely impact the lives of others. The purpose of lateral common law courts, they serve as the perpetual means which equals the playing field. Based upon freedom, that a free people takes responsibility for their decisions and actions which affect the lives of others.

    Justice does not debate the merits or demerits of this economic system or that economic system. Justice does not weigh in its scales any concept of Class struggle. Justice seeks to uphold and protect the dignity of ‘free man’. Intellectual notions of economics do not fall within the sphere of justice. Rather: matters of damages inflicted upon others defines the scope of justice. Man has the universal designation of guilt, and has the obligation to compensate all other free people whose lives – the decisions and actions taken by an individual or a group – these affected others require compensation for damages, sorrows, humiliation, and pain they experienced or endured.

    • Apologies Mosckerr your comment was in my spam folder … lots to think about and process and yes of course learn from his/hertory 🤓 compose a beautiful day hedy ☺️💫

  10. Nice series. Trees, house, shadows… Look inside!

  11. A nice house and shadows. Technically we are all chunks of stars. Molecules of stars expelled by the Sun zillions of years ago. So we are pieces of universe…
    All well hedy?

    • Yes yes all good on the west coast to mind our daughters 🐶🐶🐶👣 and it’s summery and no snow 🤣🌷 Hoping you and your loved ones also doing well Brian hugs 💫🌷
