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

Sometimes we feel that one individual’s action is very insignificant. Then we think, of course, that effects should come from channeling or from a unifying movement. But the movement of the society, community or group of people means joining individuals. Society means a collection of individuals, so that initiative must come from individuals. Unless each individual develops a sense of responsibility, the whole community cannot move. So therefore, it is very essential that we should not feel that individual effort is meaningless – you should not feel that way. We should make an effort.

According to Buddha

If you have never taken 
The principles of the teachings to heart, 
You have no basis 
For awakening to the hidden path. 

so, i’m at your house this morning
just a little after nine
’cause, it was in bobcaygeon
where i saw the constellations reveal themselves
one star at a time

According to Buddha

However deep your
Knowledge of the scriptures,
It is no more than a strand of hair
In the vastness of space;
However important appears
Your worldly experience,
It is but a drop of water in a deep ravine.

According to Buddha

Know all things to be like this: As an echo that derives from music, sounds, and weeping, Yet in that echo is no melody.

i was born here and i’ll die here against my will
i know it looks like i’m movin’ but i’m standin’ still
every nerve in my body is so naked and numb
i can’t even remember what it was i came here to get away from
don’t even hear the murmur of a prayer
it’s not dark yet but it’s gettin’ there

According to Buddha

The fundamental delusion of humanity is to suppose that I am here and you are out there.

According to Buddha

Words do not express thoughts very well; every thing immediately becomes a little different, a little distorted, a little foolish. And yet it also pleases me and seems right that what is of value and wisdom of one human seems nonsense to another.

i ended up in search of ordinary things
how much of a tree bends in the wind
i started telling the story without knowing the end

According to Buddha

If you want to understand suffering you must look into the situation at hand. The teachings say that wherever a problem arises it must be settled right there.

We don’t meditate to see heaven, but to end suffering.

According to Buddha

Look at appearance-emptiness forms,
Listen to sound and emptiness sounds,
Rest in mind's nature, clarity-emptiness,
And when your thoughts free themselves,
Laugh, oh laugh "Ha ha! Hee hee!
never saw the sun shining so bright
never saw things going so right
noticing the days hurrying by
when you’re in love, my how they fly
blue days
all of them gone
nothing but blue skies
from now on
