According to Buddha

Mindfulness is not just a word or a discourse by the Buddha, but a meaningful state of mind. It means we have to be here now, in this very moment, and we have to know what is happening internally and externally. It means being alert to our motives and learning to change unwholesome thoughts and emotions into wholesome ones. Mindfulness is a mental activity that in due course eliminates all suffering.

don’t you, forget about me
don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t
don’t you, forget about me

According to Buddha

Remind yourself that all sentient beings have at one time been your mother—birthing you, nursing you, caring for you through a helpless stage of life. Imagine this and generate appreciation and goodwill for all sentient beings, whether they cut you off in traffic, compliment your smile, or walk past you without a glance.

i see the… 
line of all the broken hearts 
lining up to tell their side
to the already one sided told story

According to Buddha

Cultivate doing good. It can be done. If it brought deprivation and sorrow, I would not ask you to do it. But since it brings blessing and happiness, I do ask of you: cultivate doing good.

do you come from a land down under
where women glow and men plunder
can’t you hear, can’t you hear the thunder
you better run, you better take cover
buying bread from a man in brussels
he was six foot four and full of muscle
i said, “do you speak-a my language?”
he just smiled and gave me a vegemite sandwich
and he said:

According to Buddha

The successive existences in a series of rebirths are not like the pearls in a pearl necklace, held together by a string, the ‘soul,’ which passes through all the pearls; rather they are like dice piled one on top of the other. Each die is separate, but it supports the one above it, with which it is functionally connected. Between the dice there is no identity, but conditionality.

people of today remember painted stories
with a kinscape that reflected all living time
and i often wondered what had happened
to those other ones who found themselves denied
 
 how did you deal with no appeal?
 just an open window

According to Buddha

However deep your
Knowledge of the scriptures,
It is no more than a strand of hair
In the vastness of space;
However important appears
Your worldly experience,
It is but a drop of water in a deep ravine.

According to Buddha

Don’t try to use what you learn from Buddhism to be a Buddhist; use it to be a better whatever-you-already-are.

love and compassion
their day is coming (coming)
all else are castles built in the air

According to Buddha

All the peace and happiness of the whole globe,
the peace and happiness of societies,
the peace and happiness of families,
the peace and happiness in the individual persons’ life,
and the peace and happiness of even the animals and so forth,
all depends on having loving kindness toward each other.

i wanna dance by water ‘neath the mexican sky
drink some margaritas by a string of blue lights
listen to the mariachi play at midnight
are you with me, are you with me?
 
are you with me?
 
are you with me?

According to Buddha

Know all things to be like this: As an echo that derives from music, sounds, and weeping, Yet in that echo is no melody.

i was born here and i’ll die here against my will
i know it looks like i’m movin’ but i’m standin’ still
every nerve in my body is so naked and numb
i can’t even remember what it was i came here to get away from
don’t even hear the murmur of a prayer
it’s not dark yet but it’s gettin’ there

According to Buddha

Do not accept any of my words on faith,
Believing them just because I said them.
Be like an analyst buying gold, who cuts, burns, 
And critically examines her product for authenticity.
Only accept what passes the test 
By proving useful and beneficial in your life
.

you say your heart is like a library book
to love is to trust he’ll bring it back
if i go and take it home for good
would you be okay with that?
would you be okay with that?

According to Buddha

As human beings, we are all the same. So there is no need to build some kind of artificial barrier between us. At least my own experience is that if you have this kind of attitude, there is no barrier. 

it ain’t no joke, i’d like to buy the world a toke
and teach the world to sing in perfect harmony
and teach the world to snuff the fires and the liars
hey, i know it’s just a song but it’s spice for the recipe
