if only we could all just find serenity
it would be nice if we could live as one
when will all this anger, hate and bigotry be gone?

i’m just a dreamer, i dream my life away (today)
i’m just a dreamer, who dreams of better days (okay)
i’m just a dreamer, who’s searching for the way (today)
i’m just a dreamer, dreaming my life away (oh yeah yeah yeah)

According to Buddha

One of the ways in which one can counterbalance excessive thinking is contact through nature and the elements. One can develop one’s sense of consciousness by contact with earth, fire, water, space – it’s as simple as that. This will take a lot of the tension and one-sidedness out of one’s metal development, and out of one’s will.

According to Buddha

An answer seeks to dissolve the question, a response recognizes the ongoing validity of the question, and seeks to remain in connection with it.

the bright horses have broken free from the fields
they are horses of love, their manes full of fire
they are parting the cities, those bright burning horses
and everyone is hiding, no one makes a sound

According to Buddha

Empty cognizance is our nature. Empty means “not made out of anything whatsoever”; our nature has always been this way. Yet, while being empty, it has the capacity to cognize, to experience, to perceive. It’s not so difficult to comprehend this; to get the theory that this empty cognizance is Buddha nature, self-existing wakefulness. But to leave it at that is the same as looking at the buffet and not eating anything. It’s like staying hungry. Once we put the food in our mouth, we discover what the food tastes like. This illustrates the dividing line between idea and experience.

if you have two, give one to your friend
if you have three, give one to your friend and me
it’s always more fun
to share with everyone
it’s always more fun
to share with everyone

According to Buddha

Duality is the real root of our suffering and of all our conflicts. All our concepts and beliefs, no matter how profound they may seem, are like nets which trap us in dualism. When we discover our limits we have to try to overcome them, untying ourselves from whatever type of religious, political, or social conviction may contain us. We have to abandon such concepts as ‘enlightenment’, ‘the nature of the mind’, and so on, until we no longer neglect to integrate our knowledge with our actual existence.

and oh, how our glory may fade
fade, well, at least we’ve learned
some things along the way

and we can see life hand in hand
the green, the blue, the rock, the sand
and in our time and in our land, we’ll savour every day

Silence is the root of everything. If you spiral into its void a hundred voices will thunder messages you long to hear.

According to Buddha

In all truly sacred traditions there is an essential resolve to cherish life and treat others ethically and kindly. All these traditions encourage us to be open to divine presence, both within and without, and tell us ‘to practice what we preach’ without hypocrisy or sleight of hand. For many, this message is of essential importance no matter who is carrying it.

According to Buddha

You have to go through the darkness to truly know the light. This may sound like a cliche, but it’s true nonetheless. Often the greatest doubts occur just before a breakthrough.

un jour le bateau s’en va droit vers l’océan
et seule, le cœur plein d’amour, une fille attend
