According to Buddha

If you are unable to find the truth right where you are, where else do you expect to find it?

if you awaken from this illusion
and you understand black implies white
self implies other
life implies death
you can feel yourself
not as a stranger in the world
not as something here on probation
not as something that has arrived here by fluke
but you can begin to feel your own existence as absolute fundamental
what you are basically
deep deep down
far far in
is simply the fabric and structure of existence itself

According to Buddha

There are many winds full of anger, and lust and greed. They move the rubbish around, but the solid mountain of our true nature stays where it’s always been.

where did they go
graceful in the morning light
to banner fair
to follow you softly
in the cold mountain air

According to Buddha

Flow and dancing with life and different gears is a good metaphor. So that we have our hands on the steering wheel and we have some choice with attention and intention. So, in meditation, seeing through things, in post meditation, see how things work so you react differently to red and green if it’s a light system. In meditation if you see red, yellow or green, you don’t react differently, because you’re seeing through it as mere imagination, but in post meditation, you know, there’s a driving karma, you react differently based on karma, cause and effect, in the relative world.

According to Buddha

Direct this positive breath specifically to perceived obstacle-creators and troublemakers. Poor humans . . . generating their own bad karma and sorrow, seeking happiness and fulfillment in all the wrong places. Simply breathe in and out. Let the natural flow wash away and re-harmonize all obscurations on the windshield of your inner “iye.

According to Buddha

You are in charge of your own karma, your own life, your own spiritual path, and your own liberation, just as I am in charge of mine.

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

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 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.]

this ain’t no walk in park
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
