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.”

i talk to the trees
but they don’t listen to me
i talk to the stars
but they never hear me

the breeze hasn’t time
to stop and hear what i say
i talk to them all in vain

Don’t prolong the past,
Don’t invite the future,
Don’t alter your innate wakefulness,
Don’t fear appearances,

i looked a coyote right in the face
on the road to baljennie, near my old home town
he went running thru the whisker wheat
chasing some prize down
and a hawk was playing with him
coyote was jumping straight up and making passes
he had those same eyes just like yours

The Sharecropper’s Son number

In Alberta landscapes, Colour photography, Edmonton, Fotografia, FujiX100s, Landscape, Photography, Urban life, Words of music on 2020/04/12 at 04:00

According to Buddha

Words are like the finger pointing at the moon. They point to what is unspeakable. They can take you into their method to get you beyond words. They only work if you don’t get lost in the content. They start moving you in a certain direction, but then you’ve got to let go. They’re not the ocean, they’re the diving board. But you walk out on the diving board to get into the ocean. So we can convey relative truth, not absolute truth.
