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  But by meditation when consciousness and life force are withdrawn from the five senses, the astral nature of the life force, along with the consciousness and other aroused divine forces in the spinal centers, look like rivers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.

According to Buddha

In the astral world, even though you can cognize the shore as solid and the ocean as liquid, there is no drowning in the astral liquid. You differentiate the solids from the liquids only as varying vibrations of light, which do not clash with each other. You can glide just as easily through “solid” light and ‘liquid” light.

holy water, cleansing rain

blind, but yet you see so clear

there is a light
you have inside you

According to Buddha

Many teachers will tell you to believe; then they put out your eyes of reason and instruct you to follow only their logic. But I want you to keep your eyes of reason open; in addition, I will open in you another eye, the eye of wisdom.

maybe i was missing something initially
and maybe eventually it will all make sense

i’m shaking all over and i can’t control it

According to Buddha

Love outlasts death and the ravages of time. All those that I have loved before, in this or other lifetimes, I love the same now.

there’s a river of love that runs through all time
but there’s a river of grief that floods through our lives
it starts when a heart is broken into
by the thief of belief in anything that’s true
but there’s a river of love that runs through all time
