According to Buddha

Compassion does not see the faults of others.  It does not see the weaknesses of people.  It makes no distinction between good and bad people.  Compassion cannot draw a line between two countries, two faiths or two religions.  Compassion has no ego; thus there is no fear, lust or passion.  Compassion simply forgives and forgets. Compassion is like a passage.  Everything passes through it.  Nothing can stay there.  Compassion is love expressed in all its fullness.

i just can’t go without
i could never drown

they wanna get my
they wanna get my
gold on the ceiling
i ain’t blind
just a matter of time
before you steal it
it’s alright
ain’t no guard in my house

where our world falls to pièces
and the moonlight starts to hide
in a million little splinters
in the corners of our mind

you believe what you see;
all the things that you know;
but, oh, you, don’t know
the depth of my soul; the depth of my soul

oooh… the depth of my soul

According to Buddha

Today I bent the truth to be kind, and I have no regret, for I am far surer of what is kind than I am of what is true.

i see people crying
truth gets harder
there’s no sense in lying
help me find a way from this maze
i can’t help myself

According to Buddha

Because seeing virtue in others is in itself a virtue, in appreciating others, we in fact dignify ourselves.  [Admiring others could shade elegance upon ourselves.]

but i call it my home
and you’re all invited

waking up in the dark
knowing i’m not alone
it’s all so familiar

To be humble is to shrink our ego until we are small enough to enter another’s eyes and [to] reside in their heart and mind.

According to Buddha

Gratitude is a way of returning energy for energy received. One who accepts a kindness without returning gratitude, as though the kindness were her by right, demeans both the giver and herself.

According to Buddha

If you are infected with the germs of worry you should go on a strict mental diet. You should feast regularly on the society of joyful minds. Every day you should associate, if only for a little while, with joy-instilled persons–those who meditate and feel the joy of spirit as a reality. Seek them out and feast with them on this most vitalising food of joy. Feast on laughter in the company of these really joyful people. Steadfastly continue your laughter diet once you have begun it, and at the end of a month or two you will see the change–your mind will be filled with sunshine.

well, i could play you
play you the blues
to help carry the load
while you’re paying your dues

but i got soul
i got sweet soul
soul

you’ve been often
misunderstood
you been tossed and tangled
in search of what’s good

According to Buddha

Watch the meadow grasses as they wave in the wind. Imagine the breeze as spirit’s breath blowing over the world, inspiring all beings and giving them life.

let’s get away from who we think we are
and the things we cannot do
look into the mirror and pretend you’re me
and i’ll pretend i am you

take a little sunshine
give a little teardrop
everybody needs to love someone
even in the silence
you can listen to the rhythm
and have a little dance around the circle of the sun

According to Buddha

I enjoy everything, but I have no desire for anything, so there is never any pain or disappointment from unfulfillment. Whatever I do, wherever I go, I enjoy myself.

if this life is one act
why do we lay all these traps
we put them right in our path
when we just wanna be free

i will not waste my days
making up all kinds of ways
to worry about all the things
that will not happen to me

so i just let go of what i know i don’t know
and i know i only do this by
living in the moment
