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

According to Buddha

Fixed ideas are like a wisp of cloud or smoke, but nonetheless people find themselves blocked or captured by these. You would laugh if you saw someone tripped by a cloud, or if someone claimed that they were imprisoned by the air. But, in fact, people are endlessly being trapped by things no more substantial than air or clouds. They make a wall with their mind, and then it imprisons them. Inherently, there is no wall or anything to trip over. These things are mirages they’ve created from the thoughts they gave rise to. 

and i see you hiding your face in your hands
talking bout far-away lands
you think no one understands
listen to my hands

According to Buddha

If you want to be free, 
Get to know your real self.
It has no form, no appearance,
No root, no basis, no abode,
But is lively and buoyant.
It responds with versatile facility,
But its function cannot be located.
Therefore when you look for it, 
You become further from it;
When you seek it, 
You turn away from it all the more
.

According to Buddha

Self-confidence is not a feeling of superiority, but of independence.
We have to understand the middle path: that a human has a positive and a negative side. 
We have a false, ignorant side, but we also have a beautiful potential.
follow, follow the sun
and which way the wind blows
when this day is done
breath, breath in the air
set your intentions
dream with care
tomorrow is a new day for everyone

According to Buddha

May everyone be happy and safe, and may their hearts be filled with joy… Just as a mother loves and protects her only child at the risk of her own life, we should cultivate boundless love to offer to all living beings in the entire cosmos. Let our boundless love pervade the whole universe, above, below, and across. Whether standing or walking, sitting or lying, as long as we are awake, we should maintain this mindfulness of love in our own heart. This is the noblest way of living.

According to Buddha

Every existence in nature, every existence in the human world, every cultural work that we create, is something which was given, or is being given to us. . . . Moment after moment we are creating something, and this is the joy of our life
