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

Ego is the problem. Sometimes ego is very spoiled, like a child who is constantly throwing tantrums. Sometimes ego doesn’t accept where we are. Sometimes ego doesn’t accept who we are. Sometimes ego doesn’t accept the way things are without any real complaint. So what do we do? There is nothing that we can do. Sometimes ego doesn’t accept the fact that the sky is blue but there is nothing that we can do. You see. Sometimes ego doesn’t accept that we are living on a planet that is permeated with natural disasters, earthquakes, floods, and other catastrophes. All we can do is accept that and learn how to surrender to the flow of all events.

According to Buddha

Goodbyes are only for those who love with their eyes. Because for those who love with heart and soul there is no such thing as separation.

that’s where i’m gonna go when i die (when i die)
when i die and they lay me to rest
i’m gonna go to the place that’s the best

According to Buddha

Let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love. It will not lead you astray.

farther along and further in
i think i’m finally listening
to some kind of spirit murmuring
i’ve never heard before

According to Buddha

Feelings come and go like clouds in a windy sky. Conscious breathing is my anchor.

we’re goin’ where the sea is blue
we’ve seen it in the movies
now let’s see if it’s true

According to Buddha

We’re here to awaken from the illusion of separateness.

turned away from it all like a blind man.
sat on a fence, but it don’t work.
keep coming up with love, but it’s so slashed and torn.
 
this is our last dance.
this is our last dance.
this is ourselves.

According to Buddha

In our Western culture, although death has come out of the closet, it is still not openly experienced or discussed. Allowing dying to be so intensely present enriches both the preciousness of each moment and our detachment from it.

qu’elle est loin la fin du voyage
 
la glace de l’hiver a beau me mordre le corps
je me garde mon âme intacte encore
 
qu’elle est loin la fin du voyage

According to Buddha

Grief can be the garden of compassion. If you keep your heart open through everything, your pain can become your greatest ally in your life’s search for love and wisdom.

there’s a place i’m going
no one knows me
if i breathe real slowly
i let it out and let it in
 
it can be terrifying
to be slowly dying
also, clarifying
we end where we begin
 
so let it wash over me
i’m ready to lose my feet
take me off to the place where one reveals life’s mystery

According to Buddha

If you look deeply into the palm of your hand, you will see your parents and all generations of your ancestors. All of them are alive in this moment. Each is present in your body.

if i am alive this time next year
will i have arrived in time to share?
and mine is about as good this far
and i’m still applied to what you are
and i am joining all my thoughts to you

According to Buddha

I’m just a small crack in the wall; the wall of patriarchy; on the wall of the hierarchy; on the wall of injustice. Soon there will be more cracks and someday the wall will fall.

maybe we do the right things
maybe we do the wrong
spending each day
wending our way along
