you’ll always be my only guiding light

Largest 3-digit perfect square number

In Architecture, Buddhist philosophical concepts, Fotografia, FujiX100V, New Topographics, Photography, Street photography, Visual story telling on 2021/03/03 at 04:00

According to Buddha

The outer world is a projection of our mind. If we look through rose-colored glasses, the world is beautiful. If we look through black glasses, it is horrible. We will have fear if the anger, resentment, and disturbances inside us have not been worked out. The best way to get rid of fear is to very consciously wish all beings everything good every day, as often and deeply as possible. There is no fear that will not disappear then; the blockages that one cannot bear will fall away. Good wishes for others are the strongest antidote.

i had the feeling that i⁠—
i could speak to somebody for a minute here
somebody that i loved
i could pull myself together

According to Buddha

I believe the purpose of all the major religious traditions is not to construct big temples on the outside, but to create temples of goodness and compassion inside, in our hearts.

your own personal jesus
someone to hear your prayers,
someone who cares
 your own personal jesus
someone to hear your prayers,
someone who’s there

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

According to Buddha

Usually when we hear or read something new, we just compare it to our own ideas. If it is the same, we accept it and say that it is correct. If it is not, we say it is incorrect. In either case, we learn nothing.

has our conscience shown?
has the sweet breeze blown?
has all the kindness gone?
hope still lingers on
are we listening
hymns of offering?
have we eyes to see
that love is gathering?

According to Buddha

And when you have the chance to stand somewhere where nobody’s watching you, and you can just look at people. I spend lots of time doing that.  Like, I’ll sit in a car on a street and watch people go by. I’ll just look at each one as somebody who is an absolutely exquisitely articulated entity unfolding before my eyes. Then they walk off, never to be seen again probably.

oh, that city music
oh, that city sound
oh, how you’re pulling my heart strings and
oh, let’s go downtown
