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.

According to Buddha

How do we know who we are? We might be one breath away from enlightenment or death or who knows? The uncertainty is great. It keeps it wide open.

we stop the life from leakin’ in
when we turn away
from what lies within
 
we are splintered
and we are rotten
deep within the walls that we’ve forgotten

According to Buddha

The shadow is the greatest teacher for how to come to the light.

well i know i had it all on the line
but don’t just seat with folded hands
and become blind
’cause even when there is no star in sight
you’ll always be my only guiding light

According to Buddha

The outer world is a projection of our mind. If we look through rose-colored glasses, the world is beautiful. If we look through black glasses, it is horrible. We will have fear if the anger, resentment, and disturbances inside us have not been worked out. The best way to get rid of fear is to very consciously wish all beings everything good every day, as often and deeply as possible. There is no fear that will not disappear then; the blockages that one cannot bear will fall away. Good wishes for others are the strongest antidote.

i had the feeling that i⁠—
i could speak to somebody for a minute here
somebody that i loved
i could pull myself together

According to Buddha

Only the wise know just where predestination ends and free will begins. Meanwhile, you must keep on doing your best, according to your own clearest understanding. You must long for freedom as the drowning human longs for air.

’cause i don’t care if you’re going nowhere
just take good care of the world
i don’t care if you’re going nowhere
just take good care of the world

According to Buddha

I believe the purpose of all the major religious traditions is not to construct big temples on the outside, but to create temples of goodness and compassion inside, in our hearts.

your own personal jesus
someone to hear your prayers,
someone who cares
 your own personal jesus
someone to hear your prayers,
someone who’s there

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.
