A Buddhist Perspective

Do I Create My Own Suffering? Does Another Create My Suffering? Or between us, we create suffering? Or is it Chance, Fate or Destiny?

The Buddha expressed a profound concern on our holding to personal views about the causes of suffering. If we do, we can blame ourselves, blame others, both ourselves and others or believe in circumstances we cannot prove.

I would advise every person looking into suffering to read and re-read the following words of the Buddha until deeply understood. In the bamboo grove in the Squirrel Sanctuary, Raghir in Bihar, India, the Buddha had  an inquiry with an austere yogi from another sect: Continue reading 



Welcome to Heathrow Airport, London. One of the World’s Busiest Airports?

I took the train from home in Totnes, Devon, to London Paddington, a three hour journey departing Totnes at 8 am with perhaps eight or 10 passengers in our compartment. Continue reading 



Commander-in-Chief. A Song by Demi Lovato. Is this the Song and Video of 2020? Mr Trump. You may soon be fired. This song tells you why. VOTE.

Listen to the song. Passionate. Powerful. A Summary of Four Years of the Trump occupation of the White House. He may soon be evicted.

Many people in the USA will be happy to help Mr and Mrs Trump carry their stuff into a removal truck.

Here are the lyrics followed by the video clip. 3 mins 17 seconds. Music and film at its best to make a statement.

Commander-in-Chief.

Were you ever taught when you were young
If you mess with things selfishly, they’re bound to come undone?
I’m not the only one
That’s been affected and resented every story you’ve spun, and I’m a lucky one

‘Cause there are people worse off that have suffered enough
Haven’t they suffered enough?
But you can’t get enough of shutting down systems for personal gain
Fighting fires with flayers and praying for rain
Do you get off on pain?
We’re not pawns in your game

Commander in Chief, honestly
If I did the things you do, I couldn’t sleep
Seriously, do you even know the truth?
We’re in a state of crisis, people are dying
While you line your pockets deep
Commander in Chief
How does it feel to still be able to breathe?

We were taught when we were young
If we fight for what’s right, there won’t be justice for just some
Won’t give up, stand our ground
We’ll be in the streets while you’re bunkering down
Loud and proud, best believe
We’ll still take a knee while you’re…

Commander in Chief, honestly
If I did the things you do, I couldn’t sleep
Seriously, do you even know the truth?
We’re in a state of crisis, people are dying
While you line your pockets deep
Commander in Chief
How does it feel to still be able to breathe?

Breathe
Be able to breathe

Won’t give up, stand our ground
We’ll be in the streets while you’re bunkering down
Won’t give up, stand our ground
We’ll be in the streets while you’re…

Commander in Chief, honestly
If I did the things you do, I couldn’t sleep
Seriously, do you even know the truth?
We’re in a state of crisis, people are dying
While you line your pockets deep
Commander in Chief
How does it feel to still be able to breathe?
Able to breathe
