The Battle of Vlaardingen number

In Art, Flora, Fotografia, FujiX100V, Reflection, still life, Words of music on 2021/09/19 at 04:00

According to Buddha

Appreciate and rejoice, without any expectation. It doesn’t matter if people are unkind to you, it doesn’t matter if people betray you, it doesn’t matter if people don’t even say ‘thank you’ to you; by appreciating everything around you, from happy experiences to sad, your life will become meaningful, full of understanding, joy, strength and fearlessness

you gotta hold on, hold on through the night
hang on, things will be all right
even when it’s dark
and not a bit of spark
sing-song sunshine from above
spreading rays of sunny love

You hide me in your cloak of nothingness. Reflect my ghost in your glass of being. I am nothing, yet appear: transparent dream. Where your eternity briefly trembles.

i wanna walk with you in the light, yeah

The shadow is the greatest teacher for how to come to the light.

but don’t just seat with folded hands
and become blind
’cause even when there is no star in sight
you’ll always be my only guiding light

According to Buddha

A human being is an animal, a part of nature. But we single ourselves out from the rest of nature. We classify other animals and living beings as nature, as if we ourselves are not part of it. Then we pose the question, “How should I deal with Nature?” We should deal with nature the way we deal with ourselves. Harming nature is harming ourselves, and vice versa.

According to Buddha

In our Western culture, although death has come out of the closet, it is still not openly experienced or discussed. Allowing dying to be so intensely present enriches both the preciousness of each moment and our detachment from it.

when i was just a little girl
i asked my mother, what will i be
will i be pretty
will i be rich
here’s what she said to me

que será, será
whatever will be, will be
the future’s not ours to see
que será, será
what will be, will be
