and give our love to the society.

physical beauty
that comes from keeping up appearances
can only be maintained temporarily,
but beauty that takes
authenticity and sincerity as its foundation
is timeless and eternal.

According to Buddha

We have to restore the meaning of the word ‘love.’ We have been using it in a careless way. When we say, ‘I love hamburgers,’ we are not talking about love. We are talking about our appetite, our desire for hamburgers. We should not dramatize our speech and misuse words like that. We make words like ‘love’ sick that way. We have to make an effort to heal our language by using words carefully. The word ‘love’ is a beautiful word. We have to restore its meaning.

i got an ol’ pair of boots
and they fit just right
i can work all day
and i can dance all night
i got an ol’ used car
and it runs just like a top
i get the feelin’ it ain’t
ever gonna stop

stuff that works, stuff that holds up
the kind of stuff you don’ hang on the wall
stuff that’ real, stuff you feel
the kind of stuff you reach for when you fall

According to Buddha

The eye is burning, visible forms are burning, eye-consciousness is burning, eye-contact is burning; also whatever is felt as pleasant or painful or neither-painful-nor-pleasant that arises with eye-contact as its condition, that too is burning. Burning with what? Burning with the fire of greed, with the fire of hate, with the fire of delusion, with birth, aging, and death, with sorrow, with lamentation, with pain, grief, and despair it is burning.

if it be your will
if there is a choice
let the rivers fill
let the hills rejoice
let your mercy spill
on all these burning hearts in hell
if it be your will
to make us well
