according to Buddha

You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.

what’s wrong with that

here i go again….

unloading and reloading the dishwasher

listening to silly little love songs

but i look around me and i see it is so…

it isn’t silly at all…



and what’s wrong with that….

7th prime number

according to Buddha

You must leave righteous ways behind, not to speak of unrighteous ways

another simple precept from Buddha is ‘do not use intoxicants‘.

pondering the subject at hand, Gregory Bateson said that everything is intoxicating, that it’s just a matter of the level….

as i listen to Bob Marley ‘red red wine’

oh red red red wine


fourth power of two

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

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

Light my Fire” 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

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…

even death is not to be feared by one who has lived wisely…

along with the impermanence doctrine…a reality that knows no change, decay or death…

wisely wise…

 as dictated and guided by wisdom;

containing and exhibiting wisdom;

well adapted to produce good effects;

good…good effects…

having knowledge; knowing; enlightened; of extensive information; erudite; learned.

knowledge…learned knowledge…

versed in art and science; skillful; dexterous; specifically, skilled in divination.

good not bad learned knowledge…

hence, prudent; calculating; shrewd; wary; subtle; crafty.


hence, especially, making due use of knowledge; discerning and judging soundly concerning what is true or false, proper or improper;


choosing the best ends and the best means for accomplishing them; sagacious.

way of being or acting; manner; mode; fashion….

so where do unwise folks go when they die?
