According to Buddha

To stay with that shakiness—to stay with a broken heart, with a rumbling stomach, with the feelings of hopelessness and wanting to get revenge—that is the path of true awakening.  Sticking with that uncertainty, getting the knack of relaxing in the midst of chaos, learning not to panic—this is the spiritual path.  Getting the knack of catching ourselves, of gently and compassionately catching ourselves is the path of the warrior.  We catch ourselves one zillion times as once again, whether we like it or not, we harden into resentment, into a sense of relief, a sense of inspiration.

so let’s take the streets, 
see what people need, 
make some kids and keep ‘em safe, 
hold on tight through every night, 
these walls will see us both go.

According to Buddha

And when you have the chance to stand somewhere where nobody’s watching you, and you can just look at people. I spend lots of time doing that.  Like, I’ll sit in a car on a street and watch people go by. I’ll just look at each one as somebody who is an absolutely exquisitely articulated entity unfolding before my eyes. Then they walk off, never to be seen again probably.

oh, that city music
oh, that city sound
oh, how you’re pulling my heart strings and
oh, let’s go downtown

According to Buddha

The soul is not part of the incarnation. It comes into the incarnation. And the soul is not afraid of death because it has done it so many times.

when you know the moneys from day to day
all the majesty of a city landscape
all the soaring days of our lives
all the concrete dreams in my mind’s eye
all the joy i see through these architect’s eyes

According to Buddha

Once a very old king went to see an old hermit who lived in a bird’s nest in the top of a tree, “What is the most important Buddhist teaching?” The hermit answered, “Do no evil, do only good. Purify your heart.” The king had expected to hear a very long explanation. He protested, “But even a five-year old child can understand that!” “Yes,” replied the wise sage, “but even an 80-year-old man cannot do it.

we are the halluci nation
we are the human beings
the callers of names cannot see us but we can see them
we are the halluci nation

our dna is of the earth and sky
our dna is of past and future
we are the halluci nation
we are the evolution, the continuation
