According to Buddha

Above all, be at ease, be as natural and spacious as possible. Slip quietly out of the noose of your habitual anxious self, release all grasping, and relax into your true nature. Think of your ordinary emotional, thought-ridden self as a block of ice or a slab of butter left out in the sun. If you are feeling hard and cold, let this aggression melt away in the sunlight of your meditation. Let peace work on you and enable you to gather your scattered mind into the mindfulness of Calm Abiding, and awaken in you the awareness and insight of Clear Seeing. And you will find all your negativity disarmed, your aggression dissolved, and your confusion evaporating slowly like mist into the vast and stainless sky of your absolute nature.

dear readers,

according to WP my sloppy buddhist theme has retired
unbeknownst to me 
so I need to change themes
however,
as a creative white space matters
and after 11 years
1096 posts
I did have white space, just saying.

slowly I’m checking my theme options
curious what i will find to reclaim
my sloppy buddhist aesthetic…

sending you all joy, smiles and open-hearted love ~ hedy

According to Buddha

There are two kinds of happiness, mental happiness, and outer happiness. Outer happiness comes through meeting with an external object and is transitory. Mental happiness comes about through meditation and positive thought, it is stable and does not cause suffering. One cannot be happy if one does not have mental happiness, no matter how abundant the   external sources of outer happiness are, but if one is truly happy in one’s mind, then one is unaffected by outer problems.

Fish play in the water. Birds play in the sky. Ordinary beings play on the earth. Sublime beings play in display.

According to Buddha

This being human is a guest house. Every morning is a new arrival. A joy, a depression, a meanness, some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor…Welcome and entertain them all.

According to Buddha

Cosmic humour, especially about your own predicament, is an important part of your journey.

let them leave you up in the air
let them brush your rock and roll hair
let the good times roll
 
let the stories be told
let them say what they want
let the photos be old
let them show what they want
 
let the good times roll, oh
let the good times roll

According to Buddha

Our rational minds can never understand what has happened, but our hearts, if we can keep them open to spirit, will find their own intuitive way.

hedy bach images - over

i am a workin’ (wo)man
but i ain’t worked for a while
like some old tin can
from the bottom of the pile
from the bottom of the pile

i have lost my way
but i hear tell
about a heaven in alberta
where they’ve got all hell for a basement

my words are like a rope
that’s wrapped around my throat
wash my mouth with soap
for words unfit to quote

and now i’m free to go
but time cannot remove
the only life i know
now only time will prove
yes only time will prove

yeah i lost my way
but i hear tell
about a heaven in alberta
where they’ve got all hell for a basement

According to Buddha

When you run after your thoughts, you are like a dog chasing a stick: every time a stick is thrown, you run after it. Instead, be like a lion who, rather than chasing after the stick, turns to face the thrower. One only throws a stick at a lion once.

what’s chasing you? ooh-ooh-ooh oooh
what’s chasing you? ooh-ooh-ooh oooh

i don’t understand a single word that you say
baby are you talking to me?
words that twist around a wire again make
you send through all your secrets to your heart (this line i’m not sure)

what’s chasing you? ooh-ooh-ooh oooh
what’s chasing you? ooh-ooh-ooh oooh

According to Buddha

The moment we become passive in relaxation — slipping into the subconscious and letting our minds wander in restless thoughts or drift into daydreaming — we actually diminish our level of relaxation. This is why deep meditation, even though it requires great energy and focus, is so much more relaxing than sleep.
