According to Buddha

Your mind is like a bird that has been locked in a cage for many years. It fears liberty. Yet, freedom is its birthright.

i opened my mouth to scream and shout
waved my arms and flapped about
but i couldn’t scream i couldn’t shout,
the song was coming from my mouth.
from my mouth,
from my mouth,
from my mouth.

but in my dreams began to creep
that old familiar tweet tweet tweet

a hundred miles is not too far
unless you have to walk
life, it seems, is like a dream
until you have to talk
don’t wonder for a moment
if you win or lose
just stop and stay, and watch the day
and listen to these blues

According to Buddha

Letting go gives us freedom, and freedom is the only condition for happiness. If, in our heart, we still cling to anything – anger, anxiety, or possessions – we cannot be free.

 hyvyyden varjo peittää kyyneleen,
löytäneen luo vie askeleen.
rauha saa, kehto uneen tuudittaa.
toivo jää, tie rakkauteen.
tie syvään vaupauteen.

according to Buddha

I do not wish to convert people from one organized religion to another; I have no interest in any of these organized religions. My interest is in Dhamma – the truth, the Teachings of all Enlightened ones. If at all there is any conversion, it should be from misery to happiness, from defilement to purity, from bondage to liberation, from ignorance to enlightenment.

according to Buddha

How blissful it is, for one who has nothing. Attainers-of-wisdom are people with nothing. See him suffering, one who has something, a person bound in mind with people.

if dogs run free, then why not we
across the swooping plain?
the best is always yet to come
that’s what they explain to me
just do your thing, you’ll be king
if dogs run free…

according to Buddha

It is not as a means of procuring my own happiness that I give in charity, but I love charity that I may do good to the world.

i met Frankie, a San Diego busker…“Busker” (British slang for street performer).

i know not all people asking for money on the street are musicians

but on this street corner i photographed Frankie

who asked “You want to hear some Johnny Cash?”

i love Johnny Cash!

Love is a burning thing
and it makes a firery ring
bound by wild desire
I fell into a ring of fire…

Ring of Firewww.youtube.com/watch?v=0lhf9U5Wf3Q.

after giving Frankie a couple of bucks he strummed straight into a rendition of

Light my Fire” www.youtube.com/watch?v=flOvM4Z355A by The Doors.

You know that it would be untrue
You know that I would be a liar
If I was to say to you
Girl, we couldn’t get much higher
Come on baby, light my fire
Come on baby, light my fire
Try to set the night on fire

both songs sung out of key added to his awe-inspiring antics…

his hyper manic performance

was truly beautiful…

and for me there is a joy in the act of giving www.buddhanet.net/budsas/ebud/whatbudbeliev/168.htm

i think about what i give…

i think about what i take…

what does a “charitable nature” look and feel like?

what are my intentions between what i have and what i give?

what is the motivation behind acts of charity?

what is charity in 2011?

i wondered if Frankie had a safe home to return to when he was done performing…

according to Buddha

The whole secret of existence is to have no fear. Never fear what will become of you, depend on no one. Only the moment you reject all help are you freed. 

freedom means knowing the rules…and which rules to bend.
