According to Buddha

It is very good to recite the mantra 
Om mani padme hum,
but while you are doing it,
you should be thinking on its meaning,
for the meaning of the six syllables is great and vast.
om mani padme hum x1000 (at least)

According to Buddha

Surely there is a window from heart to heart:
they are not separate and far from each other.
Two earthenware lamps are not joined,
but their light is mingled as it moves.

i have been wandering long
came across your, oh so delicate, delicate frame
brittle boned, you sat crouched and decayed
two hundred years or more
wrinkled map on skin, on floor

remember me
(remember me)
when the sun comes up in the morning sky
there i will be
(there i will be)
soaring with the eagle so high feeling free
remember me
when the sun comes up in the morning sky
down the road
hand in hand

You hide me in your cloak of nothingness. Reflect my ghost in your glass of being. I am nothing, yet appear: transparent dream. Where your eternity briefly trembles.

i wanna walk with you in the light, yeah
hold your head high

According to Buddha

I would say that the thrust of my life has been initially about getting free, and then realizing that my freedom is not independent of everybody else. Then I am arriving at that circle where one works on oneself as a gift to other people so that one doesn’t create more suffering.

well we’re movin’ on up,
to the east side.
to a deluxe apartment in the sky.
movin’ on up
to the east side.
we finally got a piece of the pie.

According to Buddha

Do you know what you are?
You are a manuscript of a divine letter.
You are a mirror reflecting a noble face. 
This universe is not outside of you. 
Look inside yourself;
everything that you want, 
you are already that.

you miss the world
the one you knew
the one where everything made sense
because you didn’t know the truth
that’s how it works
till the bottom drops out
and you learn
we’re all just hunters seeking solid ground

The problem with certainty is that it is static; it can do little but endlessly reassert itself. Uncertainty, by contrast, is full of unknowns, possibilities, and risks.
