According to Buddha

Duality is the real root of our suffering and of all our conflicts. All our concepts and beliefs, no matter how profound they may seem, are like nets which trap us in dualism. When we discover our limits we have to try to overcome them, untying ourselves from whatever type of religious, political, or social conviction may contain us. We have to abandon such concepts as ‘enlightenment’, ‘the nature of the mind’, and so on, until we no longer neglect to integrate our knowledge with our actual existence.

and oh, how our glory may fade
fade, well, at least we’ve learned
some things along the way

and we can see life hand in hand
the green, the blue, the rock, the sand
and in our time and in our land, we’ll savour every day

According to Buddha

Seekers inevitably want to get a better handle on life; we want to figure things out. We know intuitively that the events of our lives are not always arbitrary. We feel connected, however intangibly. We know that it is in our higher self-interest to unravel the mysteries in our own lives. There must be a higher purpose and greater meaning. As we become more and more spiritually evolved, we become more determined to find wisdom and reach a deeper understanding of our lives and our paths.

personne, personne

personne n’aime personne
personne ne manque à personne
personne ne pleure personne
pourquoi même en parler?

personne n’a tué personne
personne n’est mort pour personne
personne n’est enfant de personne
pourquoi même en parler?

According to Buddha

The point of the spiritual revolution is not to become a good Buddhist, but to become a wise and compassionate human being, to awaken from our life of complacency and ignorance and to be a buddha.

Speak kind words,
think good thoughts,

According to Buddha

Whether we are young or old,
if people give rise to joy upon seeing us,
then this is true beauty.

my left hand’s got a permanent air guitar tick
but don’t confuse it with a crutch
’cause i like it a lot.
hey little one up there just playing possum,
wake up to smoke ’em from whence you got ’em.

According to Buddha

Those who make
good use of time
will be able to
steer themselves
in the direction they
should go


steer your way through the ruins
of the altar and the mall
steer your way through the fables
of creation and the fall
steer your way past the palaces
that rise above the rot
year by year
month by month
day by day
thought by thought
