According to Buddha

Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. 
Without them, humanity cannot survive.

i opened my eyes
opened my eyes
i opened my eyes
i opened my eyes

According to Buddha

With a boundless mind one could cherish all living beings, radiating friendliness over the entire world, above, below, and all around without limit.

it’s never been easy
with you on my mind
but i’m in your corner
and you are in mine

According to Buddha

There are times of flourishing and abundance, when life feels in full bloom, energized and expanding. And there are times of fruition, when things come to an end. They have reached their climax and must be harvested before they begin to fade.

there is a lonesome old buffalo 
roaming on the plains all alone 
he does not have anybody 
he doesn’t even have a home 
he stands quiet in the morning star 
his shaggy head is hanging low 
oh but his dreams fly high as the sky alright

According to Buddha

Profound and tranquil, free from complexity,
Uncompounded luminous clarity,
Beyond the mind of conceptual ideas;
This is the depth of the mind of the Victorious Ones.
In this there is not a thing to be removed,
Nor anything that needs to be added.
It is merely the immaculate
Looking naturally at itself.

According to Buddha

I, the snow lioness who stays in snowy solitudes, Have milk which is like the essential nectar. In the absence of golden cups, I would not pour it in an ordinary vessel.

then without a warning
another winter storm comes raging through
and the mercury’s fallin’
i’m left all alone
just like spring time in alberta
chills me to the bone

According to Buddha

Fearlessness is the most prominent characteristic of all bodhisattvas and all who tread the bodhisattva path. For them, life has lost its terrors and suffering its sting. Instead of scorning earthly existence, or condemning its ‘imperfection’, they fill it with a new meaning.

afraid that you can’t climb higher
scared that you’re gonna fall
every time the road gets harder
the art of survival

According to Buddha

Ego is the problem. Sometimes ego is very spoiled, like a child who is constantly throwing tantrums. Sometimes ego doesn’t accept where we are. Sometimes ego doesn’t accept who we are. Sometimes ego doesn’t accept the way things are without any real complaint. So what do we do? There is nothing that we can do. Sometimes ego doesn’t accept the fact that the sky is blue but there is nothing that we can do. You see. Sometimes ego doesn’t accept that we are living on a planet that is permeated with natural disasters, earthquakes, floods, and other catastrophes. All we can do is accept that and learn how to surrender to the flow of all events.

Revolt against Prince Iziaslav Yaroslavich year

According to Buddha

Sometimes we feel that one individual’s action is very insignificant. Then we think, of course, that effects should come from channeling or from a unifying movement. But the movement of the society, community or group of people means joining individuals. Society means a collection of individuals, so that initiative must come from individuals. Unless each individual develops a sense of responsibility, the whole community cannot move. So therefore, it is very essential that we should not feel that individual effort is meaningless – you should not feel that way. We should make an effort.

According to Buddha

If you have never taken 
The principles of the teachings to heart, 
You have no basis 
For awakening to the hidden path. 

so, i’m at your house this morning
just a little after nine
’cause, it was in bobcaygeon
where i saw the constellations reveal themselves
one star at a time

According to Buddha

A true partner or friend is one who encourages you to look deep inside yourself for the beauty and love you’ve been seeking.

you can count on me like one, two, three

and i know when i need it, i can count on you like four, three, two
and you’ll be there
’cause that’s what friends are supposed to do, oh, yeah
