Compassion



If your compassion does not include yourself, it is incomplete.
from
Buddha's Little Instruction Book

...

"How should we act in order not to trouble others?" Is that what you want to know? I am afraid then we should not be acting at all. If you live completely, your actions may cause trouble; but what is more important: finding out what is true, or not disturbing others? This seems so simple that it hardly needs to be answered. Why do you want to respect other people's feelings and points of view? Are you afraid of having your own feelings hurt, your point of view being changed? If people have opinions that differ from yours, you can find out if they are true only by questioning them, by coming into active contact with them. And if you find that those opinions and feelings are not true, your discovery may cause disturbance to those who cherish them. Then what should you do? Should you comply with them, or compromise with them in order not to hurt your friends?
Khrishnamurti

Scarborough Fair


Are you going to Scarborough Fair?
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
Remember me to one who lives there
For once she was a true love of mine.

Have her make me a cambric shirt
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
Without a seam or fine needle work
And then she'll be a true love of mine.

Have her wash it in yonder dry well
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
Where ne'er a drop of water e'er fell
And then she'll be a true love of mine.

Have her find me an acre of land
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
Between the sea and over the sand
And then she'll be a true love of mine.

Plow the land with the horn of a lamb
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
Then sow some seeds from north of the dam
And then she'll be a true love of mine.

If she tells me she can't, I'll reply
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
Let me know that at least she will try
And then she'll be a true love of mine.

Love imposes impossible tasks
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
Though not more than any heart asks
And I must know she's a true love of mine.

Dear, when thou hast finished thy task
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
Come to me, my hand for to ask
For thou then art a true love of mine.

Paul Simon/ Art Garfunkel

Görüldüü üzere şu sıralar animelerin müziklerine takmış durumdayım, hayırlısı...:)


Itsuno Nando/Always, Numerous Times

It's calling out from deep within the heart
I always want to dream cheerful dreams
Sadness can never be counted but
I will be able to see you on the other side
Every time people repeat mistakes,
They know the blue of the simply blue sky
It seems as if the road continues endlessly but
These hands can find light
The quiet heart when parting
The ear listens as the body changes to zero
Living, mysterious, dying, mysterious
The flower, the wind, the city; they're the same
It's calling out from deep within the heart
Let's draw out dreams always, numerous times
Instead of stating the number of sadness
Sing softly with the same lips
Even in the closing memories, there are always
whispers that cannot be forgotten
Even on the shattered mirror shards,
A new scenery is reflected
The quiet window on the beginning morning
The body that is changing to zero is being pleased
I won't search beyond the sea from now
The shining thing is always here
It can be found within myself

Yumi Kimura


Being



Things are as they are.
Looking out into the universe at night,
we make no comparisons between right and wrong stars,
nor between well and badly arranged constellations.

Howl's Moving Castle


Sekai no Yakusoku / The Promise of the World

In those tears there's a trembling smile
The promise of the world, since the beginning of time.
Right now I'm alone, but because of the yesterday that was ours,
Today was born sparkling, like the day we first met.
You don't exist in memories.
Be a soft breeze that touches my cheek and comes back.
After that parting, too, in the afternoon of sunbeams streaming through the leaves,
Was the neverending promise of the world.
Right now I'm alone, but tomorrow is endless.
You taught me the gentleness hidden in the night.
You don't exist in memories.
In the song of the shallow water rippling over stones, in the colour of this sky,
In the scent of the flowers, you will live forever.

Lyrics by
TANIGAWA Shuntarou

Bir Hayat Kuralı



Hiçbir şey için BENİMDİR deme,
Sadece de ki; YANIMDADIR
Çünkü ne altın
Ne Toprak
Ne Sevgili
Ne Hayat
Ne Ölüm
Ne Huzur
Ne Keder...
Daima seninle kalmaz.

D.H.Lawrence

Abra Kadabra

Bir önceki alıntıya cevaben, bugün, Kuantum Olumlama adlı kitapta şunu okudum:
"Abra Kadabra" Aramice'de "Konuşurken Yaratırım" anlamına gelen bir değimmiş.
Yani konuştuğumuz, düşündüğümüz, dile getirdiğimiz her söz sihirli bir etkiye sahip!:)
