According to Buddha

It is a very powerful thing that we could be by doing nothing. In fact, we be by not being. Struggle does not play an important part in order to exist. We don’t have to strategize further ways of maintaining ourselves or existing ourselves.

someday they won’t let you
so now you must agree
the times they are a-telling
and the changing isn’t free
you’ve read it in the tea leaves, and the tracks are on tv

According to Buddha

Be bold and fear not.
It is fear that is the great cause of misery in this world.
It is fear that is the greatest of all superstitions.
It is fear that is the cause of our woes,
and it is fearlessness alone that brings heaven in a moment.

take a little walk to the edge of town
go across the tracks
where the viaduct looms
like a bird of doom
as it shifts and cracks
where secrets lie in the border fires
in the humming wires
hey man, you know

According to Buddha

Whether we are young or old,
if people give rise to joy upon seeing us,
then this is true beauty.

my left hand’s got a permanent air guitar tick
but don’t confuse it with a crutch
’cause i like it a lot.
hey little one up there just playing possum,
wake up to smoke ’em from whence you got ’em.

According to Buddha

The roots of war are in the way we live our daily lives — the way we develop our industries, build up our society, and consume goods.

down the ditches a thousand years
the waters grew ira’s peoples’ crops
’til the white man stole their water rights
and the sparkling water stopped
now, ira’s folks were hungry
and their land grew crops of weeds
when war came, ira volunteered
and forgot the white man’s greed

According to Buddha

Life is just like climbing a mountain.
Once we reach the top,
it is time to come back down.
Knowing that life is like this,
that we are born and then we die,
we must ask ourselves
if we are truly using our potential fully.

According to Buddha

The eye is burning, visible forms are burning, eye-consciousness is burning, eye-contact is burning; also whatever is felt as pleasant or painful or neither-painful-nor-pleasant that arises with eye-contact as its condition, that too is burning. Burning with what? Burning with the fire of greed, with the fire of hate, with the fire of delusion, with birth, aging, and death, with sorrow, with lamentation, with pain, grief, and despair it is burning.

if it be your will
if there is a choice
let the rivers fill
let the hills rejoice
let your mercy spill
on all these burning hearts in hell
if it be your will
to make us well

According to Buddha

A wo/man looking at the sky and the mountains and the ocean does not detect in them the divine presence. The subtle beam of the creator is imperceptible to the human gaze. Because s/he is everywhere, it is as if s/he were nowhere.

now the wind don’t have to hurry
blowing ‘cross my bones
rollin’ up the pastures
smoothin’ out the stones
there’s fire on the mountain
dark angels in the trees
the wind don’t have to hurry
they’re taking what they please

According to Buddha

The consciousness flowing with the life force through the senses of sight, hearing, smell, taste, and touch makes human conscious of matter.  But by meditation when consciousness and life force are withdrawn from the five senses, the astral nature of the life force, along with the consciousness and other aroused divine forces in the spinal centers, look like rivers of light flowing upward toward the ocean of light of spirit in the brain.

be on my side, i’ll be on your side, baby
there is no reason for you to hide
it’s so hard for me, staying here all alone
when you could be taking me for a ride

down by the river
i shot my baby
down by the river

According to Buddha

Real happiness can stand the challenge of all outer experiences. When you can bear the crucifixions of others’ wrongs against you and still return love and forgiveness; and when you can keep that divine inner peace intact despite all painful thrusts of outer circumstance, then you shall know this happiness.

i grew up here all of my life
but i dreamed someday i’d go
where the blue eyed girls and red guitars
and the naked rivers flow

i’m not all i thought i’d be
i’ve always stayed around
and i’ve been as far as mercy and grand
frozen to the ground
