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?

Lindner’s flying tiger number

According to Buddha

So many times each day we support each other informally without ever becoming ‘helper’ or ‘helped.’ Perhaps we’re finding an article of clothing for a partner, cutting bread for one of the children, collecting the mail for the person at the next desk, holding the coat for someone at a restaurant.

the greatest thing you’ll ever learn
is just to love and be loved in return

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

oh, there’s a mountain that no man has mounted
i’m gonna stand on the peak

Alex Olson’s Call Me number

In Alberta landscapes, Black and White Photography, Buddhist philosophical concepts, FujiX100V, Macro, Monochromia, Photography, Words of music on 2020/09/30 at 04:00

According to Buddha

To be fully alive, fully human and completely awake is to be continually thrown out of the nest. To live fully is to be always in no-man’s land, to experience each moment as completely new and fresh. To live is to be willing to die over and over again.

and instead of saying all of your goodbyes, let them know
you realize that life goes fast
it’s hard to make the good things last
you realize the sun doesn’t go down
it’s just an illusion caused by the world spinning round

wish i could get to know you
