According to Buddha

The relationship that exists between friends is the grandest of human loves. Friendly love is pure, because it is without compulsion. If you once know divine love, you will never part with it, for there is nothing else like it in the whole universe.

i’m out on the street walking home
a small pale blur
leaving trails like a snail
i move so slow
time can bruise
violent indigo
rush home to your arms
you soothe my weary soul
others stray but i won’t
walk away
walk away

one of these days,
i’m gonna sit down and write a long letter
to all the good friends i’ve known
one of these days, one of these days, one of these days,
and it won’t be long, it won’t be long.

According to Buddha

Am I the ocean? It is too small, A dream dewdrop on the azure blades of space. Am I the sky? It is too small, A lake in the bosom of eternity. Am I eternity? It is too small, Framed in a name. In the vast region of namelessness I love to dwell, Beyond limits of dreams, names, conceptions. I am what I am always — In the ever-present past, In the ever-present future, In the ever-present now.

here’s what we know
we don’t know what we’ve got or if we’ve got it
and what we had, we already forgot it
the race is evidently to the bottom
we don’t, we don’t, we don’t know what to say
don’t know what it was but we want it back

you heard my voice, i came out of the woods by choice
shelter also gave their shade
but in the dark i have no name
so leave that click in my head
and i will remember the words that you said
left a clouded mind and a heavy heart
but i am sure we could see a new start
so when your hopes on fire
but you know your desire
don’t hold a glass over the flame
don’t let your heart grow cold
i will call you by name
i will share your road

One-half minute of revolution of energy around the sensitive spinal cord of man effects subtle progress in his evolution; that half-minute of Kriya equals one year of natural spiritual unfoldment.

you say you want a revolution
well, you know
we all want to change the world
you tell me that it’s evolution
well, you know
we all want to change the world
but when you talk about destruction
don’t you know that you can count me out
don’t you know it’s gonna be alright
alright, alright

According to Buddha

Realize that you are not really a fleshly being; neither categorize yourself as a Hindu nor as an American, or any other conception you may have of yourself that is limiting and sense-bound. It is wrong to say that we are mortals when we are essentially immortal. It is the truth that we are gods, and it is wrong to call ourselves weaklings.

the heart has a way
of pushing you though the darkest days
we live in our mind
and it makes us all forget sometimes
can make life hard to tell
but if you can take a moment
and just listen to your heart
you will find there something to relive the pressure

once i was seven years old, my mama told me,
“go make yourself some friends or you’ll be lonely.”
once i was seven years old
it was a big big world, but we thought we were bigger
pushing each other to the limits, we were learning quicker
