According to Buddha

Three things, O disciples, shine before the world and cannot be hidden. What are the three? The moon, O disciples, illumines the world and cannot be hidden; the sun, O disciples, illumines the world and cannot be hidden; and the truth proclaimed by the Tathagata illumines the world and cannot be hidden. These three things, O disciples, illumine the world and cannot be hidden. There is no secrecy about them.

it’s so bright, so bright, so bright
it’s a sunny day

With a boundless mind one could cherish all living beings, radiating friendliness over the entire world, above, below, and all around without limit.

According to Buddha

Know all things to be like this: As an echo that derives from music, sounds, and weeping, Yet in that echo is no melody.

i was born here and i’ll die here against my will
i know it looks like i’m movin’ but i’m standin’ still
every nerve in my body is so naked and numb
i can’t even remember what it was i came here to get away from
don’t even hear the murmur of a prayer
it’s not dark yet but it’s gettin’ there

In Alberta, Architecture, Buddhist philosophical concepts, by Hedy Bach, Colour photography, Fotografia, FujiX100V, New Topographics, Photography, Street photography, Words of music on 2022/01/16 at 04:00

According to Buddha

Do not accept any of my words on faith,
Believing them just because I said them.
Be like an analyst buying gold, who cuts, burns, 
And critically examines her product for authenticity.
Only accept what passes the test 
By proving useful and beneficial in your life
.

you say your heart is like a library book
to love is to trust he’ll bring it back
if i go and take it home for good
would you be okay with that?
would you be okay with that?

According to Buddha

Be as careful as you can. Our minds are funny. Sometimes we are skeptical of things that are really worthwhile and completely accepting of things that we should avoid. Try to avoid extremes and follow the middle way, checking with wisdom wherever you go.

we’re on a road to nowhere
come on inside
takin’ that ride to nowhere
we’ll take that ride

Maximum failed login code number

According to Buddha

Look at appearance-emptiness forms,
Listen to sound and emptiness sounds,
Rest in mind's nature, clarity-emptiness,
And when your thoughts free themselves,
Laugh, oh laugh "Ha ha! Hee hee!
never saw the sun shining so bright
never saw things going so right
noticing the days hurrying by
when you’re in love, my how they fly
blue days
all of them gone
nothing but blue skies
from now on

According to Buddha

Self-confidence is not a feeling of superiority, but of independence.
We have to understand the middle path: that a human has a positive and a negative side. 
We have a false, ignorant side, but we also have a beautiful potential.
follow, follow the sun
and which way the wind blows
when this day is done
breath, breath in the air
set your intentions
dream with care
tomorrow is a new day for everyone

According to Buddha

“And what, bhikkhus, are the seven principles of non-decline? 

 As long as the bhikkhus develop the perception of impermanence, only growth is to be expected for them, not decline. 
As long as they develop the perception of non-self . . . 
. . . . the perception of attractiveness . . .
. . . . the perception of danger . . .
. . . . the perception of abandoning . . .
. . . . the perception of dispassion . . .
. . . . the perception of cessation . . .
Only growth is to be expected for them, not decline.”
eyes without a face
(les yeux sans visage) eyes without a face
(les yeux sans visage) eyes without a face
got no human grace
your eyes without a face

In Architecture, British Columbia, Buddhist philosophical concepts, Colour photography, Fotografia, FujiX100V, Lifestyle, New Topographics, Photography, Street photography, Words of music on 2021/06/20 at 04:00

According to Buddha

I would say that the thrust of my life has been initially about getting free, and then realizing that my freedom is not independent of everybody else. Then I am arriving at that circle where one works on oneself as a gift to other people so that one doesn’t create more suffering.

well we’re movin’ on up,
to the east side.
to a deluxe apartment in the sky.
movin’ on up
to the east side.
we finally got a piece of the pie.

According to Buddha

Our rational minds can never understand what has happened, but our hearts, if we can keep them open to spirit, will find their own intuitive way.
