According to Buddha

Concentration consists in focusing one hundred percent attention upon one thing at a time. All efficient people possess some power of concentration as a byproduct of the vocation or avocation they follow.

i ride my bike, i roller skate, don’t drive no car
don’t go too fast, but i go pretty far
for somebody who don’t drive i been all round the world
some people think i done all right for a girl
well, i got a brand new pair of roller skates

i think that we should get together and try them out, you see
i been looking around awhile, you got something for me
oh, i got a brand new pair of roller skates
you got a brand new key

According to Buddha

We need to change our way of thinking and seeing things. We need to realize that the Earth is not just our environment. The Earth is not something outside of us. Breathing with mindfulness and contemplating your body, you realize that you are the Earth. You realize that your consciousness is also the consciousness of the Earth. Look around you–what you see is not your environment, it is you.

Analyze yourself. All emotions are reflected in the body and mind. Envy and fear cause the face to pale, love makes it glow.

if you want a lover
i’ll do anything you ask me to
and if you want another kind of love
i’ll wear a mask for you
and if you want a partner, take my hand
and if you want to strike me down in anger
here i stand, i’m your man

Suffering is a good teacher to those who are quick and willing to learn from it. But it becomes a tyrant to those who resist and resent.

According to Buddha

You may control a mad elephant;
You may shut the mouth of the bear and the tiger;
Ride the lion and play with the cobra;
By alchemy you may learn your livelihood;
You may wander through the universe incognito;
Make vassals of the gods; be ever youthful;
You may walk in water and live in fire;
But control of the mind is better and more difficult.

well i think it’s fine, building jumbo planes.
or taking a ride on a cosmic train.
switch on summer from a slot machine.
get what you want to if you want, ’cause you can get anything.
i know we’ve come a long way,
we’re changing day to day,
but tell me, where do the children play?

According to Buddha

Don’t be in a hurry and don’t be in haste. Move as if all eternity is available to you – in fact, it is available to you. We are here from the beginning and we are going to be here to the very end, if there is a beginning and there is an end. In fact, there is no beginning and no end. We have always been here and we will be here always. Forms go on changing, but not the substance; garments go on changing, but not the soul.

According to Buddha

Human happiness and human satisfaction must ultimately come from within oneself. It is wrong to expect some final satisfaction to come from money or from a computer.
