According to Buddha

The minute I heard my first love story,
I started looking for you, not knowing
how blind that was.
Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere.
They’re in each other all along.

According to Buddha

Compassion is the basis of all truthful relationship: it means being present with love-for ourselves and for all life, including animals, fish, birds, and trees. Compassion is bringing our deepest truth into our actions, no matter how much the world seems to resist, because that is ultimately what we have to give this world and one another.

j’adore mon poisson rouge
il m’appelle jour et nuit
il tourne en rond pour moi
et je me tais, rien que pour lui

According to Buddha

In our culture we’ve been trained to make individual differences to stand out. You look at each person and think, ‘Brighter, dumber, older, younger, richer, poorer’ and we make all these dimensional distinctions, put them in categories and treat people that way. And we only see others as separate from ourselves. One of the dramatic characteristics of the psychedelic experience is being with another person and suddenly seeing the ways in which they are like you – not different from you.

when we were young 
we would laugh so carefree
the pain would circle over me
heavy metal buried deep in my heart

And don’t think the garden loses its ecstasy in winter. It’s quiet, but the roots are down there riotous.

think i might forget it, gonna write it down-down-down
if it’s copacetic, bring it back around-round-round
i’m tired of fighting another man’s pointless war
so please keep up with it just like you have before

According to Buddha

In this moment there is nothing that comes to be. In this moment there is nothing that ceases to be. Thus there is no birth-and-death to be brought to an end. Thus the absolute peace in this present moment. Though it is at this moment, there is no limit to this moment, and herein lies eternal delight.

harmony and understanding
sympathy and trust abounding
no more falsehoods or derisions
golden living dreams of visions
mystic crystal revelation
and the mind’s true liberation

According to Buddha

Ultimately you live simultaneously in all of the planes of consciousness all the time, so that in a way, it’s like a vertical cut up – you look at somebody, they’re there; they’re not there. 

ten fingers, ten laws that i live by.
(ten fingers, ten laws that i live by,
like all signs they keep me on track)

Carrera 6 number

According to Buddha

I don’t really believe anything I say. Because the nature of my work concerns the spaces between the words, rather than the words themselves.

 

jump in, let’s go
lay back, enjoy the show
everybody gets high, everybody gets low,
these are the days when anything goes

everyday is a winding road
i get a little bit closer
everyday is a faded sign
i get a little bit closer to feeling fine
