Feelings come and go like clouds in a windy sky. Conscious breathing is my anchor.

we’re goin’ where the sea is blue
we’ve seen it in the movies
now let’s see if it’s true

According to Buddha

Do not leave me,
hide in my heart like a secret,
wind around my head like a turban.
“I come and go as I please,”
you say, “swift as a heartbeat.”
You can tease me as much as you like
but never leave me.

and i miss you, i’m going back home to the west coast
i wish you would’ve put yourself in my suitcase
i love you, standing all alone in a black coat
i miss you, i’m going back home to the west coast

According to Buddha

I smile like a flower not only with my lips but with my whole being.

but i won’t let it change me, not if i can
i’d rather believe in love
and give it away as much as i can
to those that i am fondest of

In Alberta, Buddhist philosophical concepts, Colour photography, Documentary, Edmonton, Emotion, Fotografia, FujiX100V, Learning, Photography, Street photography, Words of music on 2021/04/25 at 04:00

According to Buddha

When somebody provokes your anger, the only reason you get angry is because you’re holding on to how you think something is supposed to be. You’re denying how it is. Then you see it’s the expectations of your own mind that are creating your own hell. When you get frustrated because something isn’t the way you thought it would be, examine the way you thought, not just the thing that frustrates you. You’ll see that a lot of your emotional suffering is created by your models of how you think the universe should be and your inability to allow it to be as it is.

but you tell me over and over and over again, my friend
ah, you don’t believe we’re on the eve of destruction
 
and marches alone can’t bring integration
when human respect is disintegratin’
this whole crazy world is just too frustratin’

The minute I heard my first love story,

Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere.
They’re in each other all along.

According to Buddha

Things falling apart is a kind of testing and also a kind of healing.  We think the point is to pass the test or to overcome the problem, but the truth is that things don’t really get solved.  They come together and they fall apart.  Then they come together again and fall apart again.  It’s just like that.  The healing comes from letting there be room for all of this to happen: room for grief, for relief, for misery, for joy.

once there was a song, the song yearned to be sung
it was a spinning song about the king of rock ‘n’ roll
the king was first a young prince, the prince was the best
with his black jelly hair he crashed onto a stage in vegas
the king had a queen, the queen’s hair was a stairway
she tended the castle garden, and in the garden planted a tree
the garden tree was a stairway, it was sixteen branches high
on the top branch was a nest, sing the high cloudy nest
in the nest there was a bird, the bird had a wing
the wing had a feather, spin the feather and sing the wind

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.

According to Buddha

The work of quieting our minds and opening our hearts prepares us to be able to act in the world in a way that doesn’t create more suffering. When we develop that stance, a perspective arises towards life that allows us to be effective actors on the stage of life. So that you and I become instruments of healing, instruments of peace, of love and wisdom.

ohhh will make it through this one
will make it through this one
will make it through this one
