8 eight 8 infinity 8

If we can control our body and mind in a way that we help others instead of doing them harm, and generating wisdom in our own mind, we can end our suffering and problems. The Buddha summarized the correct attitude and actions in the Eight-fold Noble Path:

  1. Correct thought: avoiding covetousness, the wish to harm others and wrong views (like thinking: actions have no consequences, I never have any problems, there are no ways to end suffering etc.)
  2. Correct speech: avoid lying, divisive and harsh speech and idle gossip.
  3. Correct actions: avoid killing, stealing and sexual misconduct
  4. Correct livelihood: try to make a living with the above attitude of thought, speech and actions.
  5. Correct understanding: developing genuine wisdom. (The last three aspects refer mainly to the practice of meditation:)
  6. Correct effort: after the first real step we need joyful perseverance to continue.
  7. Correct mindfulness: try to be aware of the “here and now”, instead of dreaming in the “there and then”.
  8. Correct concentration: to keep a steady, calm and attentive state of mind.

intense reaction

someone commented that ebony bones produces all her own music and plays her own instruments while some people sit at home writing ‘shitty’ blogs. you coulda just mentioned the first part instead of the added hateration. kinda defeats your point. but thanks for pointing that out.


well… i’m not sure what to say other than i really thought ebony bones was art for real and now i’m told it’s not so. ‘i guess we’ll always have NY’ is a steady copy of the yeahyeahyeahs ‘gold lion’ released 2007. she worked jahmal tonge’s (of the carps) 1,2,1,2,3 WAVE YOUR FLAG schtick into some TO THE LEFT part of her act.

i know if you have read below i feel that artists are vessels; i believe in the power of collective consciousness, zeitgeist that type of thing… but we must also give credit where credit is due too. that’s also a part of artists’ accountability. to try your damnedest not to be a part of the appropriation that propelled many stars into fame n fortune of the backs of lesser known geniuses (a la big mama thornton).
