According to Buddha

Fearlessness is the most prominent characteristic of all bodhisattvas and all who tread the bodhisattva path. For them, life has lost its terrors and suffering its sting. Instead of scorning earthly existence, or condemning its ‘imperfection’, they fill it with a new meaning.

afraid that you can’t climb higher
scared that you’re gonna fall
every time the road gets harder
the art of survival

According to Buddha

The basic problem is that emotions like anger and hatred are based on projections and exaggeration, not on objectivity or wisdom, and thus basically incorrect. 

if you lose your cool
baby, i’ll lose mine
you draw the red line
i love crossing red lines

According to Buddha

Ego is the problem. Sometimes ego is very spoiled, like a child who is constantly throwing tantrums. Sometimes ego doesn’t accept where we are. Sometimes ego doesn’t accept who we are. Sometimes ego doesn’t accept the way things are without any real complaint. So what do we do? There is nothing that we can do. Sometimes ego doesn’t accept the fact that the sky is blue but there is nothing that we can do. You see. Sometimes ego doesn’t accept that we are living on a planet that is permeated with natural disasters, earthquakes, floods, and other catastrophes. All we can do is accept that and learn how to surrender to the flow of all events.

According to Buddha

The most important aspect of love is not in giving or the receiving: it’s in the being. When I need love from others, or need to give love to others, I’m caught in an unstable situation. Being in love, rather than giving or taking love, is the only thing that provides stability. Being in love means seeing the beloved all around me.

gonna keep on tryin’
til i reach my highest ground… whew!
til i reach my highest ground
no one’s gonna bring me down
oh no

According to Buddha

Surrender means surrendering who you are not, so that who you really are may emerge.
You are not what you think, you are not what you believe, you are not what you like or dislike.
Those are the adopted filters which speak through you.

According to Buddha

To meet someone who really hurts you is to meet a rare and precious treasure. Hold that person in high esteem, and make full use of the opportunity to eradicate your defects and make progress on the path. If you cannot yet feel love and compassion for those who treat you badly, it is a sign that your mind has not been fully transformed and that you need to keep working on it with increased application

*(simile) To sting severely, to cause a sensation of stinging, especially said of cold weather. To my small hands, the bitter wind cuts like a knife, freezing my fingers and numbing my circulation.

According to Buddha

Then the usual everyday level of experience becomes altered; there is more ‘magic’ in the air. One can become ‘inspired’ or be on a ‘crusade’.

According to Buddha

The first offering is that of pure drinking water. It is offered with the thought that whatever benefit one accumulates may, for the present, bring about the annihilation of suffering through thirst among beings. Especially beings in realms such as the pretas, or hungry ghosts, may receive relief from the suffering of thirst. The offering is also made so that ultimately all beings may be permeated by loving kindness and compassion.

this blue eye perceives all things conjoined
the past, the future and the present
everything flows and all is connected
this eye is not merely seen reality
it is touching the truth
 
there’s nothing to fear

According to Buddha

There is such a thing 
as unconditional expression
that does not come from self or other. 

It manifests out of nowhere 
like mushrooms in a meadow, 
like hailstones, like thundershowers.

zou bisou, bisou
zou bisou, bisou
zou bisou, zou bisou
mon dieu que c’est doux
