with her image on the wall –
and a place where she could rest
and a place where she could wash –
and listen to the wind blow.

According to Buddha

Letting there be room for not knowing is the most important thing of all. When there’s a big disappointment, we don’t know if that’s the end of the story. It may just be the beginning of a great adventure. Life is like that. We don’t know anything. We call something bad; we call it good. But really we just don’t know.

According to Buddha

Compassion is the basis of all truthful relationship: it means being present with love-for ourselves and for all life, including animals, fish, birds, and trees. Compassion is bringing our deepest truth into our actions, no matter how much the world seems to resist, because that is ultimately what we have to give this world and one another.

j’adore mon poisson rouge
il m’appelle jour et nuit
il tourne en rond pour moi
et je me tais, rien que pour lui

According to Buddha

A Native American grandmother was speaking to her grandson about violence and cruelty in the world and how it comes about. She said it was as if two wolves were fighting in her heart. One wolf was vengeful and angry, and the other wolf was understanding and kind. The young man asked his grandmother which wolf would win the fight in her heart. And the grandmother answered, “The one that wins will be the one I choose to feed.”

just then grandfather came out.
he was angry because peter had gone in the meadow.
“it is the dangerous place.
if a wolf should come out of the forest, then what would you do?”
but peter paid no attention to his grandfather’s words.

In Architecture, Black and White Photography, Buddhist philosophical concepts, Emotion, Fotografia, FujiX100V, Monochromia, Photography, Street photography, Urban life, Words of music on 2020/12/20 at 04:00

According to Buddha

To stay with that shakiness—to stay with a broken heart, with a rumbling stomach, with the feelings of hopelessness and wanting to get revenge—that is the path of true awakening.  Sticking with that uncertainty, getting the knack of relaxing in the midst of chaos, learning not to panic—this is the spiritual path.  Getting the knack of catching ourselves, of gently and compassionately catching ourselves is the path of the warrior.  We catch ourselves one zillion times as once again, whether we like it or not, we harden into resentment, into a sense of relief, a sense of inspiration.

so let’s take the streets, 
see what people need, 
make some kids and keep ‘em safe, 
hold on tight through every night, 
these walls will see us both go.
