According to Buddha

Above all, be at ease, be as natural and spacious as possible. Slip quietly out of the noose of your habitual anxious self, release all grasping, and relax into your true nature. Think of your ordinary emotional, thought-ridden self as a block of ice or a slab of butter left out in the sun. If you are feeling hard and cold, let this aggression melt away in the sunlight of your meditation. Let peace work on you and enable you to gather your scattered mind into the mindfulness of calm abiding, and awaken in you the awareness and insight of clear seeing. And you will find all your negativity disarmed, your aggression dissolved, and your confusion evaporating slowly like mist into the vast and stainless sky of your absolute nature.

dear readers,

according to WP my sloppy buddhist theme has retired
unbeknownst to me 
so I need to change themes
however,
as a creative white space matters
and after 11 years
1096 posts
I did have white space, just saying.

slowly I’m checking my theme options
curious what i will find to reclaim
my sloppy buddhist aesthetic…

sending you all joy, smiles and open-hearted love ~ hedy

According to Buddha

Mindfulness is not just a word or a discourse by the Buddha, but a meaningful state of mind. It means we have to be here now, in this very moment, and we have to know what is happening internally and externally. It means being alert to our motives and learning to change unwholesome thoughts and emotions into wholesome ones. Mindfulness is a mental activity that in due course eliminates all suffering.

don’t you, forget about me
don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t
don’t you, forget about me

According to Buddha

People cleave to their worldly possessions and selfish passions so blindly as to sacrifice their own lives for them. They are like a child who tries to eat a little honey smeared on the edge of a knife. The amount is by no means sufficient to appease their appetite, but they run the risk of wounding the tongue.

honey honey, how you thrill me, a-ha, honey honey
honey honey, nearly kill me, a-ha, honey honey
i’d heard about you before
i wanted to know some more

According to Buddha

Know all things to be like this:
A mirage, a cloud castle,
A dream, an apparition,
Without essence, but with qualities that can be seen.

on a clear day,
rise and look around you,
and you’ll see who you are.
 
you can hear from far and near
a world you’ve never heard before.

According to Buddha

Give the ones you love wings to fly, roots to come back, and reasons to stay.

coast to coast going through the motions of
who’ll be a better [hu]man, who’ll do it better

According to Buddha

Surrender means surrendering who you are not, so that who you really are may emerge.
You are not what you think, you are not what you believe, you are not what you like or dislike.
Those are the adopted filters which speak through you.

According to Buddha


If a hundred people sleep and dream, each of them will experience a different world in their dream. Everyone’s dream might be said to be true, but it would be meaningless to ascertain that only one person’s dream was the true world and all others were fallacies. There is truth for each perceiver according to the karmic patterns conditioning their perceptions.

According to Buddha

It is not a pumping-in from the outside that gives wisdom; it is the power and extent of your inner receptivity that determines how much you can attain of true knowledge, and how rapidly. You can quicken your evolution by awakening and increasing the receptive power of your brain cells.

i’ve been on tenterhooks, ending in dirty looks
list’ning to the muzak, thinking ’bout this ‘n’ that
she said, “that’s that, i don’t want to chitter-chat”
turn it down a little bit or turn it down flat
pump it up, when you don’t really need it
pump it up, until you can feel it

According to Buddha

Water is fluid, soft, and yielding. But water will wear away rock, which is rigid and cannot yield. As a rule, whatever is fluid, soft, and yielding will overcome whatever is rigid and hard. This is another paradox: what is soft is strong.

take it from me
when you start it’s just a matter of time
any minute you will cross that line
take it from me
you never think about the price that you pay
take it from me
it got a mind of its own and it stings
take it from me
it got a mind of its own and it stings
nothing can stop me
nothing holds me back
think you could slow me down?
