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

A dog is not considered a good dog because he is a good barker. A man is not considered a good man because he is a good talker.

i wonder a good garrulous man…good as in so bad.

According to Buddha

Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth.

hid.din…kept out of sight; concealed…will be exhibited, exposed, obvious, opened, outed, seen, shown, uncovered, made visible.
