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

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

Love gives without expecting anything in return. I never think of anyone in terms of what he can do for me. And I never profess love to someone because he has done something for me. If I didn’t actually feel love, I wouldn’t pretend to give it; and since I feel it, I give it. Love cannot be had for the asking; it comes only as a gift from the heart of another. Be certain of your feeling before you say to anyone, ‘I love you’. Once you give your love, it must be forever. Not because you want to be near that person, but because you want perfection for that soul. To wish for perfection for the loved one, and to feel pure joy in thinking of that soul, is divine love; and that is the love of true friendship.

don’t know much about geography,
don’t know much trigonometry
don’t know much about algebra,
don’t know what a slide rule is for
but i do know that one and one is two,
and if this one could be with you,
what a wonderful world this would be

According to Buddha

Sing songs that none have sung, think thoughts that ne’er in the brain have rung; walk in paths that none have trod; weep tears as none have shed for spirit. Give peace to all to whom none other gave, claim them your own who’s everywhere disclaimed. Love all with love that none have felt and brave the battle of life with strength unchained.

keep your thoughts to yourself and you’ll be fine
don’t let them see the light of day
tell the people what they want to hear
and you’ll always have the right thing to say

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

When you believe that cold weather won’t hurt you, you won’t be affected by it. But if you feel you are going to catch a cold from the chill, you will. The thing is this: you don’t practice mind control. By controlling your mind you can experience the truth that this universe is a delusion.

will the wind ever remember?
the names it has blown in the past
and with its crutch, its old age and its wisdom
it whispers “no, this will be the last”

and the wind cries mary

According to Buddha

Those who allow their minds to ossify are truly dying. To solve the mystery of life you must be born anew every day. This means you must strive daily to improve yourself in some way. Above all, pray for wisdom, because with wisdom everything else comes. Be controlled not by moods, but by wisdom. And with that wisdom, develop creative thinking and activity.

and we’ll dress up for the cold
there’s gonna be nice days
