According to Buddha

Mindfulness is not just a word or a discourse by the Buddha, but a meaningful state of mind. It means we have to be here now, in this very moment, and we have to know what is happening internally and externally. It means being alert to our motives and learning to change unwholesome thoughts and emotions into wholesome ones. Mindfulness is a mental activity that in due course eliminates all suffering.

don’t you, forget about me
don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t
don’t you, forget about me

According to Buddha

Real devotion is an unbroken receptivity to the truth. Real devotion is rooted in an awed and reverent gratitude, but one that is lucid, grounded, and intelligent.

if you need happiness
we can let it come around sometimes
happier than i think i am
the happy woman cries

Give the ones you love wings to fly, roots to come back, and reasons to stay.

According to Buddha

How wonderful it would be, I thought, if only we could practice the teachings of the Buddha as he really taught them from his own experience – free from the clouds of religiosity that often surround them. Yet it’s difficult to distinguish the tools themselves from their cultural packaging.

According to Buddha

Fearlessness is the most prominent characteristic of all bodhisattvas and all who tread the bodhisattva path. For them, life has lost its terrors and suffering its sting. Instead of scorning earthly existence, or condemning its ‘imperfection’, they fill it with a new meaning.

afraid that you can’t climb higher
scared that you’re gonna fall
every time the road gets harder
the art of survival

According to Buddha

The basic problem is that emotions like anger and hatred are based on projections and exaggeration, not on objectivity or wisdom, and thus basically incorrect. 

if you lose your cool
baby, i’ll lose mine
you draw the red line
i love crossing red lines

Number of puzzles in the ‘Biggest Word’ book

According to Buddha

The very entity of the mind, its nature of mere luminosity and knowing, is not polluted by defilements; they do not abide in the entity of the mind. Even when we generate afflictive emotions, the very entity or nature of the mind is still mere luminosity and knowing, and because of this we are able to remove the afflictive emotions. If you agitate the water in a pond, it becomes cloudy with mud; yet the very nature of the water itself is not dirty. When you allow it to become still again, the mud will settle leaving the water pure.

you, soft and only
you, lost and lonely
you, strange as angels
dancing in the deepest oceans
twisting in the water
you’re just like a dream
you’re just like a dream

According to Buddha

The successive existences in a series of rebirths are not like the pearls in a pearl necklace, held together by a string, the ‘soul,’ which passes through all the pearls; rather they are like dice piled one on top of the other. Each die is separate, but it supports the one above it, with which it is functionally connected. Between the dice there is no identity, but conditionality.

people of today remember painted stories
with a kinscape that reflected all living time
and i often wondered what had happened
to those other ones who found themselves denied
 
 how did you deal with no appeal?
 just an open window

According to Buddha

Don’t try to use what you learn from Buddhism to be a Buddhist; use it to be a better whatever-you-already-are.

love and compassion
their day is coming (coming)
all else are castles built in the air

According to Buddha

The most important aspect of love is not in giving or the receiving: it’s in the being. When I need love from others, or need to give love to others, I’m caught in an unstable situation. Being in love, rather than giving or taking love, is the only thing that provides stability. Being in love means seeing the beloved all around me.

gonna keep on tryin’
til i reach my highest ground… whew!
til i reach my highest ground
no one’s gonna bring me down
oh no
