According to Buddha

Things falling apart is a kind of testing and also a kind of healing.  We think the point is to pass the test or to overcome the problem, but the truth is that things don’t really get solved.  They come together and they fall apart.  Then they come together again and fall apart again.  It’s just like that.  The healing comes from letting there be room for all of this to happen: room for grief, for relief, for misery, for joy.

once there was a song, the song yearned to be sung
it was a spinning song about the king of rock ‘n’ roll
the king was first a young prince, the prince was the best
with his black jelly hair he crashed onto a stage in vegas
the king had a queen, the queen’s hair was a stairway
she tended the castle garden, and in the garden planted a tree
the garden tree was a stairway, it was sixteen branches high
on the top branch was a nest, sing the high cloudy nest
in the nest there was a bird, the bird had a wing
the wing had a feather, spin the feather and sing the wind

According to Buddha

To stay with that shakiness—to stay with a broken heart, with a rumbling stomach, with the feelings of hopelessness and wanting to get revenge—that is the path of true awakening.  Sticking with that uncertainty, getting the knack of relaxing in the midst of chaos, learning not to panic—this is the spiritual path.  Getting the knack of catching ourselves, of gently and compassionately catching ourselves is the path of the warrior.  We catch ourselves one zillion times as once again, whether we like it or not, we harden into resentment, into a sense of relief, a sense of inspiration.

so let’s take the streets, 
see what people need, 
make some kids and keep ‘em safe, 
hold on tight through every night, 
these walls will see us both go.

According to Buddha

The work of quieting our minds and opening our hearts prepares us to be able to act in the world in a way that doesn’t create more suffering. When we develop that stance, a perspective arises towards life that allows us to be effective actors on the stage of life. So that you and I become instruments of healing, instruments of peace, of love and wisdom.

ohhh will make it through this one

According to Buddha

Along with the peach and the citrus, pomegranates are one of the “Three Blessed Fruits” of Buddhist tradition. The story goes that there was a powerful female demon (known as Hariti in India and Kishimo-jin or Karitei-mo in Japan) who kidnapped young children and feasted on them. The Buddha, however, managed to placate her ferocious desire by offering her pomegranates. Soothed by the Buddha’s compassion, she acquired a gentler nature and became the patron goddess of children. She is sometimes depicted holding a pomegranate in one hand a suckling a baby with the other.

According to Buddha

So many times each day we support each other informally without ever becoming ‘helper’ or ‘helped.’ Perhaps we’re finding an article of clothing for a partner, cutting bread for one of the children, collecting the mail for the person at the next desk, holding the coat for someone at a restaurant.

the greatest thing you’ll ever learn
is just to love and be loved in return

According to Buddha

When we see the beloved in each 
person, it’s like walking through 
a garden, watching flowers 
bloom all around us.

want you more than a melody
let me inside
wish i could get to know you

According to Buddha

Aging has its own beauty. It is a beautiful stage for doing inner work. You have a chance to not be so dependent on social approval. You can be a little more eccentric. You can be more alone. And you can examine loneliness and boredom instead of being afraid of them. There is such an art and a possibility of aging.

According to Buddha

Don’t treat yourself so gingerly; you can let go of stuff. Sometimes it takes three breaths instead of two to do it, but you can do it. Be a little tougher and don’t cling to stuff. People go around carrying everybody’s stuff all of the time. I just pick it up and put it down. Pick it up and put it down.
