According to Buddha

Being grateful to our parents is the foundation of being a decent person. We exist because of our parents. Our mothers suffered a great deal during pregnancy and while giving birth, much like the earth having to endure much ordeal as plants grow out of the ground.

turn it up, turn it up
turn up your radio loud
don’t forget where you come from
it’s too soon to be proud

remember when
we… were… young
remember when
we… were… young

According to Buddha

Everything inside and around us wants to reflect itself in us. We don’t have to go anywhere to obtain the truth. We only need to be still and things will reveal themselves in the clear water of your heart.

we float on the river of time
hold steady, hold steady
the sea comes, calls the summer
forced out the cold
don’t follow the change of the tides
hold steady, hold steady

According to Buddha

We really ought to have confidence in human beings. Although humans have damaged the environment, we must be confident that humans can also save the Earth. I hope people with the same vision can join together to raise the awareness of environmental protection and save the Earth.

John Espinal’s gangster film number

In Alberta, Buddhist philosophical concepts, Colour photography, Documentary, FujiX100s, Photography, Sport, Words of music on 2019/02/20 at 04:00

According to Buddha

Be yourself. Life is precious as it is. All the elements for your happiness are already here. There is no need to run, strive, search, or struggle. Just be. Just being in the moment in this place is the deepest practice of meditation. Most people cannot believe that just walking as though you have nowhere to go is enough. They think that striving and competing are normal and necessary. Try practicing aimlessness for just five minutes,and you will see how happy you are during those five minutes.

i howled at the moon with friends
and then the sun came crashing in
wo-o-o-o-o-oh, wo-o-o-o-o-oh
but all the possibilities
no limits just epiphanies
wo-o-o-o-o-oh, wo-o-o-o-o-oh

According to Buddha

physical beauty
that comes from keeping up appearances
can only be maintained temporarily,
but beauty that takes
authenticity and sincerity as its foundation
is timeless and eternal.

so nevermind

According to Buddha

We have to restore the meaning of the word ‘love.’ We have been using it in a careless way. When we say, ‘I love hamburgers,’ we are not talking about love. We are talking about our appetite, our desire for hamburgers. We should not dramatize our speech and misuse words like that. We make words like ‘love’ sick that way. We have to make an effort to heal our language by using words carefully. The word ‘love’ is a beautiful word. We have to restore its meaning.

i got an ol’ pair of boots
and they fit just right
i can work all day
and i can dance all night
i got an ol’ used car
and it runs just like a top
i get the feelin’ it ain’t
ever gonna stop

stuff that works, stuff that holds up
the kind of stuff you don’ hang on the wall
stuff that’ real, stuff you feel
the kind of stuff you reach for when you fall

According to Buddha

The roots of war are in the way we live our daily lives — the way we develop our industries, build up our society, and consume goods.

down the ditches a thousand years
the waters grew ira’s peoples’ crops
’til the white man stole their water rights
and the sparkling water stopped
now, ira’s folks were hungry
and their land grew crops of weeds
when war came, ira volunteered
and forgot the white man’s greed

According to Buddha

Be not fooled, for moral values and hearts may fall short under tyrants. More significant still, the seat of human value is not the brain, but the sensible or supersensible heart.

if you are the dealer, i’m out of the game
if you are the healer, it means i’m broken and lame
if thine is the glory then mine must be the shame
you want it darker
we kill the flame

magnified, sanctified, be thy holy name
vilified, crucified, in the human frame
a million candles burning for the help that never came
you want it darker

number of ways to find your bliss in the Happy Life Checklist book

In Black and White Photography, Buddhist philosophical concepts, Documentary, Fotografia, HB images, Monochromia, Photography, Words of music on 2018/03/14 at 04:00

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
