Flint’s ‘Year of Survival’

In abstract, Alberta landscapes, Body, Buddhist philosophical concepts, close up, Colour photography, Fotografia, health, Horses, iPhone photography, minimalism, Photography, self study, Words of music on 2022/03/23 at 04:00

According to Buddha

Ego is the problem. Sometimes ego is very spoiled, like a child who is constantly throwing tantrums. Sometimes ego doesn’t accept where we are. Sometimes ego doesn’t accept who we are. Sometimes ego doesn’t accept the way things are without any real complaint. So what do we do? There is nothing that we can do. Sometimes ego doesn’t accept the fact that the sky is blue but there is nothing that we can do. You see. Sometimes ego doesn’t accept that we are living on a planet that is permeated with natural disasters, earthquakes, floods, and other catastrophes. All we can do is accept that and learn how to surrender to the flow of all events.

According to Buddha

The most important aspect of love is not in giving or the receiving: it’s in the being. When I need love from others, or need to give love to others, I’m caught in an unstable situation. Being in love, rather than giving or taking love, is the only thing that provides stability. Being in love means seeing the beloved all around me.

gonna keep on tryin’
til i reach my highest ground… whew!
til i reach my highest ground
no one’s gonna bring me down
oh no

According to Buddha

To meet someone who really hurts you is to meet a rare and precious treasure. Hold that person in high esteem, and make full use of the opportunity to eradicate your defects and make progress on the path. If you cannot yet feel love and compassion for those who treat you badly, it is a sign that your mind has not been fully transformed and that you need to keep working on it with increased application

*(simile) To sting severely, to cause a sensation of stinging, especially said of cold weather. To my small hands, the bitter wind cuts like a knife, freezing my fingers and numbing my circulation.

Do not leave me,

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

Grief can be the garden of compassion. If you keep your heart open through everything, your pain can become your greatest ally in your life’s search for love and wisdom.

there’s a place i’m going
no one knows me
if i breathe real slowly
i let it out and let it in
 
it can be terrifying
to be slowly dying
also, clarifying
we end where we begin
 
so let it wash over me
i’m ready to lose my feet
take me off to the place where one reveals life’s mystery

here she built a chapel
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.
