Alex Olson’s Call Me number

According to Buddha

To be fully alive, fully human and completely awake is to be continually thrown out of the nest. To live fully is to be always in no-man’s land, to experience each moment as completely new and fresh. To live is to be willing to die over and over again.

and instead of saying all of your goodbyes, let them know
you realize that life goes fast
it’s hard to make the good things last
you realize the sun doesn’t go down
it’s just an illusion caused by the world spinning round

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.

she knows that time takes all of us
through every long hot heavy summer

If you think you are enlightened; go home for Thanksgiving.

autumn is waitin’, you’d better be careful,
for it will bring you down
if it ever sees you wearing a frown
 
so laugh, laugh a little apple

where did the ravens come from? 
a nest, deep in the earth made of sticks and bones, 
and as the ravens cracked out of their shells and clawed their way to the surface their feathers were singed and burned to a shiny black.

According to Buddha

Once a very old king went to see an old hermit who lived in a bird’s nest in the top of a tree, “What is the most important Buddhist teaching?” The hermit answered, “Do no evil, do only good. Purify your heart.” The king had expected to hear a very long explanation. He protested, “But even a five-year old child can understand that!” “Yes,” replied the wise sage, “but even an 80-year-old man cannot do it.

we are the halluci nation
we are the human beings
the callers of names cannot see us but we can see them
we are the halluci nation

our dna is of the earth and sky
our dna is of past and future
we are the halluci nation
we are the evolution, the continuation

they know from the past
life simply doesn’t last
so they live for today
for tomorrow they may
not be able to walk in the skies

sun slips into horizon
moon reaches for the stars

According to Buddha

There is a Zen story about a man riding a horse that is galloping very quickly. Another man, standing alongside the road, yells at him, “Where are you going?” and the man on the horse yells back, “I don’t know. Ask the horse.” I think that is our situation. We are riding many horses that we cannot control.

the bright horses have broken free from the fields
they are horses of love, their manes full of fire
they are parting the cities, those bright burning horses
and everyone is hiding, and no one makes a sound

Royston Tan’s musical-comedy-drama film number

According to Buddha

The way in which you are part of the web of life, of incarnation, is around the dimensions, you could call it, of compassion, suffering or dealing with suffering. That when you have a society that is built on the denial of other people’s suffering, for the myths of the society to be lived out, you have a very frightened society, and you have all the pathology that comes from fear.

The first part is just acknowledging what is – just acknowledging what is.
