According to Buddha

…Each one of us lacks one thing or another. I am not exactly sure what we lack, but I can feel we lack something. In the West, even if at the moment you are going through a crisis, you actually have everything, or at least you think you do; all kinds of material goods are there, and are no doubt distributed better than they were in the past. But it seems to me that you are living in a constant state of tension, in an atmosphere of never-ending competitiveness and fear. And those who are brought up in such an atmosphere will find themselves lacking all their lives: they will not know that wonderful quality of depth and intimacy that is the richness of life. They will stay on the surface of the troubled sea, without ever knowing the calm that lies beneath. 

may the long time sun
shine upon you
all love surround you
and the pure light
within you
guide your way on
guide your way on

According to Buddha

If you want to understand suffering you must look into the situation at hand. The teachings say that wherever a problem arises it must be settled right there.

We don’t meditate to see heaven, but to end suffering.

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

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

The minute I heard my first love story,
I started looking for you, not knowing

Questions of Joyce number by Richesin

In Art, Black and White Photography, Buddhist philosophical concepts, Documentary, Fotografia, iPhoneography, Mobile photography, Photography, water, Words of music on 2021/02/03 at 04:00

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.

et je me tais, rien que pour lui

According to Buddha

Be motivated like the falcon, hunt gloriously. Be magnificent as the leopard, fight to win. Spend less time with nightingales and peacocks. One is all talk, the other only colour.

when you flew away, 
you just left one feather. 
so i keep it in my pillow, 
so i’ll dream of you at night. 
 
and your feathers were the colour, 
of the sun before it sets at night. 
and your eyes were as sharp, 
as the morning sunlight.
