according to Buddha

Mind is the forerunner of (all evil) states. Mind is chief; mind-made are they. If one speaks or acts with wicked mind, suffering follows one, even as the wheel follows the hoof of the draught-ox.
Mind is the forerunner of (all good) states. Mind is chief; mind-made are they. If one speaks or acts with pure mind, affection follows one, even as one’s shadow that never leaves.

Love is the absence of judgment.

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

To live a pure unselfish life, one must count nothing as one’s own in the midst of abundance.

another simple precept from Buddha is ‘do not steal’.

i gave a woman a dinner…

i woke up…in a very different place…

i took photographs of her…

i stole a glimpse…

…steal.

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.
