According to Buddha

The eye is burning, visible forms are burning, eye-consciousness is burning, eye-contact is burning; also whatever is felt as pleasant or painful or neither-painful-nor-pleasant that arises with eye-contact as its condition, that too is burning. Burning with what? Burning with the fire of greed, with the fire of hate, with the fire of delusion, with birth, aging, and death, with sorrow, with lamentation, with pain, grief, and despair it is burning.

if it be your will
if there is a choice
let the rivers fill
let the hills rejoice
let your mercy spill
on all these burning hearts in hell
if it be your will
to make us well

According to Buddha

May all sentient beings have equanimity, free from attachment, aggression and prejudice.
May they be happy, and have the causes for happiness.
May they be free from suffering and causes for suffering.
May they never be separated from the happiness that is free from suffering.

According to Buddha

Do not selfishly seek anything from others; if you have no expectations, then what can people take from you?

According to Buddha

Anger takes many forms: touchiness, impatience, displeasure, jealousy, irritability, unhappiness, moodiness. Actually, every one of us has a problem with anger to some degree, unless we are in samadhi.

‘that feeling’ ~ Porto, April 2018

❤️ Dear Sloppy Buddhist followers. ❤️

I am in Hamburg, Germany and yesterday my Adobe Lightroom ‘disappeared‘ from my computer and this is the program I use to both upload and edit my images. I did however received this message.

“Sie befinden sich außerhalb der USA? Auf der Adobe-Website für Ihre Region finden Sie Informationen zu den für Sie relevanten Preisen, Angeboten und Veranstaltungen.”

Zur Website für Deutschland

Currently, I am unable to connect with Adobe here in Hamburg due to my lack of German so I am choosing to share one more image from my April travels in Portugal…you know ‘that feeling’. I will need to figure out what happened or what I did so I am practicing some Buddhist philosophy…in my sloppy hedy way. 😉

My joy is to photograph, meet with new people and explore new places/spaces. Therefore I am choosing not to be indoors in front of my computer figuring out my LR issues. I am also choosing not to be disappointed in myself for not remembering passwords, codes or hanging on the telephone. So I just wanted to let you all know I’ll be back up and running with new visual stories in a few days.

As well, please know I truly appreciate all your *likes*, comments, and supportive words very much. Compose another beautiful day ~ smiles hedy ✌️😊

According to Buddha

May I become at all times, both now and forever: a protector for those without protection; a guide for those who have lost their way; a ship for those with oceans to cross; a bridge for those with rivers to cross; a sanctuary for those in danger; a lamp for those without light; a place of refuge for those who lack shelter; and a servant to all in need.

i awoke so cold and lonely
in a faraway place
the sun fell cold upon my face
the cracks in the ceiling spelt hell
turned to the wall
pulled the sheets around my head
tried to sleep, and dream my way
back to you again

According to Buddha

Moods are often a result of environmental influences. Each one of us is affected in different ways by the world about us. But you should not allow yourself to indulge in moods over external conditions. Why should you take on the effects of your environment?

According to Buddha

Refuse to be bound by karma; it is an old superstition of the ignorant to believe you cannot change your destiny.

quer o destino que eu não creia no destino
e o meu fado é nem ter fado nenhum
cantá-lo bem sem sequer o ter sentido
senti-lo como ninguém, mas não ter sentido algum

ai que tristeza, esta minha alegria
ai que alegria, esta tão grande tristeza
esperar que um dia eu não espere mais um dia
por aquele que nunca vem e que aqui esteve presente

According to Buddha

Habits are simply thoughts grooved deeply into the brain. The needle of the mind plays those records of habits again and again. Even the chemistry of the body responds, as with addiction. Applying mind and will can change those patterns. Don’t immediately attempt dramatic changes. Experiment in little things first, to train your inherent power of command.

say a prayer for the cowgirl, her horse ran away
she’ll walk until she finds him, her darling, her stray
but the river’s in flood and the roads are awash
and the bridges break up in the panic of loss

and there’s nothing to follow, nowhere to go
he’s gone like the summer, gone like the snow
