According to Buddha

All the wonders of life are already here. They’re calling you. If you can listen to them, you will be able to stop running. What you need, what we all need, is silence. Stop the noise in your mind in order for the wondrous sounds of life to be heard. Then you can begin to live your life authentically and deeply.

when it’s not always raining there’ll be days like this
when there’s no one complaining there’ll be days like this
when everything falls into place like the flick of a switch
 
when everyone is up front and they’re not playing tricks, yeah
when you don’t have no freeloaders, out to get their kicks, yeah
when it’s nobody’s business, the way that you want to live
i just have to remember, there’ll be days like this
 
oh my mama told me, there’ll be days like this
oh my mama told me, there’ll be days like this

According to Buddha.

It is almost impossible to practice loving-kindness towards all living beings without addressing, in a meaningful way, the innumerable problems arising in our own lives. It is a contradiction, you see. It does not work. If our heart is tormented because we are not able to accept things the way they are, then it is impossible to open our heart. It is impossible to let go of all of our defenses and embrace others. Therefore we have to constantly practice and deepen our awareness. We have to remind ourselves to accept things as they are…even reciting slogans, phrases like “I shall accept the way things are.”

when i was a little girl
and the devil would call my name
and i’d say, “who do, who

oh, my mama loves me, she loves me
she gets down on her knees and hugs me
yeah, she loves me like a rock
she rocks me like the rock of ages
she loves me

According to Buddha

The successive existences in a series of rebirths are not like the pearls in a pearl necklace, held together by a string, the ‘soul,’ which passes through all the pearls; rather they are like dice piled one on top of the other. Each die is separate, but it supports the one above it, with which it is functionally connected. Between the dice there is no identity, but conditionality.

people of today remember painted stories
with a kinscape that reflected all living time
and i often wondered what had happened
to those other ones who found themselves denied
 
 how did you deal with no appeal?
 just an open window

According to Buddha

For all of us, love can be the natural state of our own being; naturally at peace, naturally connected, because this becomes the reflection of who we simply are.

According to Buddha

I am beyond everything finite; I now see that the Spirit, alone in a space with Its ever-new joy, has expressed Itself as the vast body of nature.
I am the stars,
I am the waves,
I am the Life of all,
I am the laughter within all hearts,
I am the smile on the faces of the flowers and in each soul.
I am the Wisdom and Power that sustain all creation.

i am a star, the tear of the sun
i am a wonder, a wonder in flower
i am the spear as it cries out for blood
the word of great power
i am the wind that breathes on the sea

who but i can cast light upon the meeting of the mountains?
who but i will cry aloud the changes in the moon?
who but i will find the place where hides away the sun?

According to Buddha

The secret of success and happiness is inside you. If you have found success and prosperity outside, but not inside, you are not truly successful. A millionaire who is not happy is not successful. I don’t mean that if you have a million dollars you cannot be a success. Whether you are rich or poor, if you get happiness out of life you are a real success.

spotless is my mental sky,

i got a cabin in the country
and the tin roof rattles
when the rain comes down
where the wind through the pine
helps me unwind
while the world goes ’round
i’m gonna live, laugh, love, just for today
gonna take all the trouble and put it away
gonna drink every drop of happiness
’til they cover me up
i’m gonna live, gonna laugh, gonna love

Beginning with the early dawn of each day, I will radiate joy to everyone I meet. I will be mental sunshine for all who cross my path. Before the unfailing light of my cheer, darkness will take flight.

i can’t make the hills
the system is shot
i’m living on pills
for which i thank g-d
i followed the course
from chaos to art
desire the horse
depression the cart
i sailed like a swan
i sank like a rock
but time is long gone
past my laughing stock
my page was too white
my ink was too thin
the day wouldn’t write
what the night pencilled in
