According to Buddha

What is the mind? It is a phenonmenon that is not body, not substantial, has no form, no shape, no colour, but, like a mirror, can clearly reflect objects.

leave this space and face the open wide
wonder endlessly, i don’t look down
making me forgive making me brave
looking for a chance to change my wings
lately i’ve been wondering why i stay
feeling like
 
space invades my mind

a day or so ago walking my little black box and dog ~ North Saskatchewan River ~ Etown – Amiskwaciwâskahikan ᐊᒥᐢᑲᐧᒋᐋᐧᐢᑲᐦᐃᑲᐣ ~ December 2021

  1. This poetic post reminds me of the movie Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

    • Thanks a cool connection sweetspontaneous 🤓⭐️ “Eternal sunshine” is a metaphor for ongoing peace, happiness and carefree. So in full “Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind” is describing the happiness and joy one can experience once the negative experiences (or “spots”) have been removed from your mind…imagine🤓🤍🕊sending joy I’m going to rematch that film🙏sending joy hedy💫

  2. Mind interrupts all matters of the senses as only it can do.
    Without it, we would know nothing. With it we know everything.
    For instance, because of mind, I see (and know) your photos
    are simply stunning! all that snow OMG
    stay warm dear friend, love, Eddie

    • Necessary interruptions sometimes along the way👣🤍thanks for your kind words and thoughts dear Eddie~ sending joy and peace⭐️🕊☀️love hedy💫

  3. Chilling spaciousness … warm heart 💕🙏🏼💕

  4. These beautiful images make me long for more winter days here.

    • Well I love them now Chris come March April not so much but it’s a wonderland of white here for sure ❄️❄️❄️💫⭐️have a peaceful week ~ hugs hedy 🕊

  5. Gorgeous winter scenes.

  6. Stunning winter snow scenes! Stay safe, dear Hedy, and keep your body and mind warm 💖🙏💖

    • I’m warm…layers, heat all good now ❄️🤍☀️💙-36 feels like…it’s how it is here🙋‍♀️❄️sending hugs over the pond Ashley 💫

  7. Cold E-town! Over here in Groningen we go no snow but a little frost we do have. According to out weather service we had a ‘felt temperature’ of -16 degrees Celsius las night! Well, in cases like this I don’t have the urge to go out and check it. 🙂 Merry Christmas Hedy!

    • Here feels like -36 couple of fresh days for sure…when the sun is out one is fooled but it looks pretty Peter ~ be cozy and warm ~ sending joy hedy💫❄️❄️❄️🕊

  8. wild and empty beauty, apt words 🙂

  9. Beautiful words, images and ideas Hedy.

  10. Honestly, I think the trouble is that the mind CANNOT clearly reflect objects… I think that’s why we have so many of the troubles that we have…

    • I also thought about the words from Lama Yeshe, Lama Zopa Rinpoche in the book Lamrim Year: Making Life Meaningful Day by Day…I also wonder about clear reflections Hetty…my snowy blurred day…there is a lot about what I see makes me question exactly what you say ❄️❄️❄️🤍but I don’t know 🤷‍♀️ sending joy 💫hedy

  11. Stunning open wide! Nice winter days!

  12. Just exploring your blog Beautiful quote; we can spend a lifetime just exploring the implications of this one phrase! Lovely photos too. Thank you.

  13. So much snow… ❄️ ⛄️ Happy New Year Hedy.

  14. Minimalism at its best. Love. ❤️
