Alex Olson’s Call Me number

In Alberta landscapes, Black and White Photography, Buddhist philosophical concepts, FujiX100V, Macro, Monochromia, Photography, Words of music on 2020/09/30 at 04:00

According to Buddha

To be fully alive, fully human and completely awake is to be continually thrown out of the nest. To live fully is to be always in no-man’s land, to experience each moment as completely new and fresh. To live is to be willing to die over and over again.

and instead of saying all of your goodbyes, let them know
you realize that life goes fast
it’s hard to make the good things last
you realize the sun doesn’t go down
it’s just an illusion caused by the world spinning round

According to Buddha

How do we know who we are? We might be one breath away from enlightenment or death or who knows? The uncertainty is great. It keeps it wide open.

in the hearts of the wild and free
she knows that time takes all of us
through every long hot heavy summer

This getting straight not only applies to people but to things as well, such as favorite music, disliked foods, special treats, avoided places, all your toys, etc. Everything must be rerun through your compassion machine.

begin to speak

Sweet Justice (Loveswept) number

In Alberta landscapes, Buddhist philosophical concepts, Colour photography, Fotografia, FujiX100V, Photography, Words of music on 2020/08/26 at 04:00

According to Buddha

But you know, you really don’t have to worry about whether everybody else is doing it or not. You just begin to get your own house in order. Recognizing your complete interrelatedness with all of it and with your own spiritual source changes the meaning of each act, and therefore both the reason and the way it’s done.

someday we’ll find it
the rainbow connection…
the lovers, the dreamers and me
la lala la lala la la la lala la la la

Carrera 6 number

According to Buddha

I don’t really believe anything I say. Because the nature of my work concerns the spaces between the words, rather than the words themselves.

 

jump in, let’s go
lay back, enjoy the show
everybody gets high, everybody gets low,
these are the days when anything goes

everyday is a winding road
i get a little bit closer
everyday is a faded sign
i get a little bit closer to feeling fine

John Entwistle’s B-side song number

According to Buddha

Our sorrows and wounds are healed only when we touch them with compassion.

so if they call you
embrace them
if they hold you
erase them

’cause it might’ve been something, who’s to say?
does it help to get lost in yesterday?

According to Buddha

Unconditional love really exists in each of us. It is part of our deep inner being. It is not so much an active emotion as a state of being. It’s not ‘I love you’ for this or that reason, not ‘I love you if you love me.’ It’s love for no reason, love without an object.

According to Buddha

“Namaste,” which means: I honor the place in you where the entire universe resides; I honor the place in you of love, of light, of truth, of peace. I honor the place within you where if you are in that place in you and I am in that place in me, there is only one of us. “Namaste.”
