According to Buddha

Grief can be the garden of compassion. If you keep your heart open through everything, your pain can become your greatest ally in your life’s search for love and wisdom.

there’s a place i’m going
no one knows me
if i breathe real slowly
i let it out and let it in
 
it can be terrifying
to be slowly dying
also, clarifying
we end where we begin
 
so let it wash over me
i’m ready to lose my feet
take me off to the place where one reveals life’s mystery

According to Buddha

Everything in your life is there as a vehicle for your transformation.
Use it.

with all kinds of mystery
it’s a blank page for your poetry
if you let it be
 
look up
do you see the sunlight?

According to Buddha

The minute I heard my first love story,
I started looking for you, not knowing
how blind that was.
Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere.
They’re in each other all along.

If you look deeply into the palm of your hand, you will see your parents and all generations of your ancestors. All of them are alive in this moment. Each is present in your body.

if i am alive this time next year
will i have arrived in time to share?
and mine is about as good this far
and i’m still applied to what you are
and i am joining all my thoughts to you

I’m just a small crack in the wall; the wall of patriarchy; on the wall of the hierarchy; on the wall of injustice. Soon there will be more cracks and someday the wall will fall.

maybe we do the wrong
spending each day
wending our way along

According to Buddha

In our culture we’ve been trained to make individual differences to stand out. You look at each person and think, ‘Brighter, dumber, older, younger, richer, poorer’ and we make all these dimensional distinctions, put them in categories and treat people that way. And we only see others as separate from ourselves. One of the dramatic characteristics of the psychedelic experience is being with another person and suddenly seeing the ways in which they are like you – not different from you.

when we were young 
we would laugh so carefree
the pain would circle over me
heavy metal buried deep in my heart
heavy metal

According to Buddha

Be motivated like the falcon, hunt gloriously. Be magnificent as the leopard, fight to win. Spend less time with nightingales and peacocks. One is all talk, the other only colour.

when you flew away, 
you just left one feather. 
so i keep it in my pillow, 
so i’ll dream of you at night. 
 
and your feathers were the colour, 
of the sun before it sets at night. 
and your eyes were as sharp, 
as the morning sunlight.
