According to Buddha

On the mundane level, the clear comprehension of impermanence, suffering and non-self will bring us a saner outlook on life. It will free us from unrealistic expectations, bestow a courageous acceptance of suffering and failure and protect us against the lure of deluded assumptions and beliefs. In our quest for the supra-mundane comprehension of the three characteristics will be indispensable.

but i’m coming down the mountain again
get the word to all my good-time friends
the fishing was fine but fishing comes to an end
i’m coming down the mountain again

According to Buddha

The spirit is so near that you can’t see it. But reach for it…don’t be a jar, full of water, whose rim is always dry. Don’t be the rider who gallops all night and never sees the horse that is beneath him/her/them.

According to Buddha

The spiritual journey is individual, highly personal. It can’t be organized or regulated. It isn’t true that everyone should follow one path. Listen to your own truth.

so give the stars to the lonely city
give the ocean to the country
ain’t seen anything so pretty
 
in case this is just a dream
i let my tired eyes loose

According to Buddha

I would say that the thrust of my life has been initially about getting free, and then realizing that my freedom is not independent of everybody else. Then I am arriving at that circle where one works on oneself as a gift to other people so that one doesn’t create more suffering.

well we’re movin’ on up,
to the east side.
to a deluxe apartment in the sky.
movin’ on up
to the east side.
we finally got a piece of the pie.
