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

Sometimes we feel that one individual’s action is very insignificant. Then we think, of course, that effects should come from channeling or from a unifying movement. But the movement of the society, community or group of people means joining individuals. Society means a collection of individuals, so that initiative must come from individuals. Unless each individual develops a sense of responsibility, the whole community cannot move. So therefore, it is very essential that we should not feel that individual effort is meaningless – you should not feel that way. We should make an effort.

According to Buddha

However deep your
Knowledge of the scriptures,
It is no more than a strand of hair
In the vastness of space;
However important appears
Your worldly experience,
It is but a drop of water in a deep ravine.

According to Buddha

Everyone wants happiness,
but the true way to reach perfect happiness is to bring happiness to others.

i keep my nose on the grindstone, i work hard every day
i might get a little tired on the weekend, after i draw my pay
then i’ll go back workin’, come monday morning i’m right back with the crew
i’ll drink a little beer that evening
sing a little bit of these working man blues

According to Buddha

Half of life is lost in charming others. 
The other half is lost in going through anxieties caused by others. 
Leave this play. You have played enough.
the more i see, the less i know
the more i like to let it go
hey oh, whoa, whoa, whoa
deep beneath the cover of another perfect wonder
where it’s so white as snow
privately divided by a world so undecided
and there’s nowhere to go

According to Buddha

The fundamental delusion of humanity is to suppose that I am here and you are out there.

a new world hangs
outside the window
beautiful and strange
it must mean i’ve fallen away
i must be

According to Buddha

Words do not express thoughts very well; every thing immediately becomes a little different, a little distorted, a little foolish. And yet it also pleases me and seems right that what is of value and wisdom of one human seems nonsense to another.

i ended up in search of ordinary things
how much of a tree bends in the wind
i started telling the story without knowing the end

According to Buddha

All sentient beings are exactly the same in that every one desires happiness and seeks to avoid misery. We are not isolated entities disconnected from each other. The happiness and suffering of other beings affect us. This mutual relation is obvious. Sentient beings have been kind and have benefited us directly and indirectly throughout beginningless time. These beings are intrinsically the same as us in their pursuit of happiness and effort to avoid suffering. Thus, it is essentially logical for us to train in cultivating an impartial attitude wishing for the happiness of all beings.

this is the dawn
this is the moment
release
stomp your feet on the back on the earth 
so she can breathe

According to Buddha

If, as in a dream, you see a light brighter than the sun, your remaining attachments will suddenly come to an end and the nature of reality will be revealed. Such an occurrence serves as the basis for enlightenment. But this is something only you know. 
You can’t explain it to others.

sunshine’s better on the other side
sunshine’s better when you make it shine
the sun shines better
sunshine’s better on the other side
the other side of the hill
the sun shines better.

According to Buddha

In all activities, may I examine my mind
And as soon as conflicting emotions arise,
Endangering myself and others,
May I firmly face and avert them.

unforgettable, though near or far
like a song of love that clings to me
how the thought of you does things to me
never before has someone been more
unforgettable in every way
