According to Buddha

The light of the sun is the manifestation of the clarity of the sky; and the sky is the basic condition necessary for the manifestation of the sun’s light. So, too, in the sky two, three, four, or any number of suns could arise; but the sky always remains indivisibly one sky. Similarly, every individual’s state of presence is unique and distinct, but the void nature of the individual is universal, and common to all beings.

just take it slow
the sun will show you where to go
trust your heart can help you see
i have seen the light, it settled me
just take it slow

According to Buddha

I, the snow lioness who stays in snowy solitudes, Have milk which is like the essential nectar. In the absence of golden cups, I would not pour it in an ordinary vessel.

then without a warning
another winter storm comes raging through
and the mercury’s fallin’
i’m left all alone
just like spring time in alberta
chills me to the bone

According to Buddha

Cultivate doing good. It can be done. If it brought deprivation and sorrow, I would not ask you to do it. But since it brings blessing and happiness, I do ask of you: cultivate doing good.

do you come from a land down under
where women glow and men plunder
can’t you hear, can’t you hear the thunder
you better run, you better take cover
buying bread from a man in brussels
he was six foot four and full of muscle
i said, “do you speak-a my language?”
he just smiled and gave me a vegemite sandwich
and he said:

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

Do you know what you are?
You are a manuscript of a divine letter.
You are a mirror reflecting a noble face. 
This universe is not outside of you. 
Look inside yourself;
everything that you want, 
you are already that.

you miss the world
the one you knew
the one where everything made sense
because you didn’t know the truth
that’s how it works
till the bottom drops out
and you learn
we’re all just hunters seeking solid ground

According to Buddha

When somebody provokes your anger, the only reason you get angry is because you’re holding on to how you think something is supposed to be. You’re denying how it is. Then you see it’s the expectations of your own mind that are creating your own hell. When you get frustrated because something isn’t the way you thought it would be, examine the way you thought, not just the thing that frustrates you. You’ll see that a lot of your emotional suffering is created by your models of how you think the universe should be and your inability to allow it to be as it is.

but you tell me over and over and over again, my friend
ah, you don’t believe we’re on the eve of destruction
 
and marches alone can’t bring integration
when human respect is disintegratin’
this whole crazy world is just too frustratin’

According to Buddha

The shadow is the greatest teacher for how to come to the light.

well i know i had it all on the line
but don’t just seat with folded hands
and become blind
’cause even when there is no star in sight
you’ll always be my only guiding light

love is but a song to sing
fear’s the way we die
you can make the mountains ring
or make the angels cry
though the bird is on the wing
and you may not know why
come on people now
smile on your brother
everybody get together
try to love one another
right now

According to Buddha

Words are like the finger pointing at the moon. They point to what is unspeakable. They can take you into their method to get you beyond words. They only work if you don’t get lost in the content. They start moving you in a certain direction, but then you’ve got to let go. They’re not the ocean, they’re the diving board. But you walk out on the diving board to get into the ocean. So we can convey relative truth, not absolute truth.
