According to Buddha

There are two kinds of happiness, mental happiness, and outer happiness. Outer happiness comes through meeting with an external object and is transitory. Mental happiness comes about through meditation and positive thought, it is stable and does not cause suffering. One cannot be happy if one does not have mental happiness, no matter how abundant the   external sources of outer happiness are, but if one is truly happy in one’s mind, then one is unaffected by outer problems.

you gotta swing your hips now
come on baby
a jump up oh, jump back
oh well, i think you’ve got the knack, oh-oh
 
(come on baby, do the locomotion)

According to Buddha

What is the mind? It is a phenonmenon that is not body, not substantial, has no form, no shape, no colour, but, like a mirror, can clearly reflect objects.

leave this space and face the open wide
wonder endlessly, i don’t look down
making me forgive making me brave
looking for a chance to change my wings
lately i’ve been wondering why i stay
feeling like
 
space invades my mind

According to Buddha

As human beings, we are all the same. So there is no need to build some kind of artificial barrier between us. At least my own experience is that if you have this kind of attitude, there is no barrier. 

it ain’t no joke, i’d like to buy the world a toke
and teach the world to sing in perfect harmony
and teach the world to snuff the fires and the liars
hey, i know it’s just a song but it’s spice for the recipe

According to Buddha

Fixed ideas are like a wisp of cloud or smoke, but nonetheless people find themselves blocked or captured by these. You would laugh if you saw someone tripped by a cloud, or if someone claimed that they were imprisoned by the air. But, in fact, people are endlessly being trapped by things no more substantial than air or clouds. They make a wall with their mind, and then it imprisons them. Inherently, there is no wall or anything to trip over. These things are mirages they’ve created from the thoughts they gave rise to. 

and i see you hiding your face in your hands
talking bout far-away lands
you think no one understands
listen to my hands

According to Buddha

Feelings come and go like clouds in a windy sky. Conscious breathing is my anchor.

According to Buddha

Do not leave me,
hide in my heart like a secret,
wind around my head like a turban.
“I come and go as I please,”
you say, “swift as a heartbeat.”
You can tease me as much as you like
but never leave me.

and i miss you, i’m going back home to the west coast
i wish you would’ve put yourself in my suitcase
i love you, standing all alone in a black coat
i miss you, i’m going back home to the west coast

According to Buddha

I smile like a flower not only with my lips but with my whole being.

but i won’t let it change me, not if i can
i’d rather believe in love
and give it away as much as i can
to those that i am fondest of

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’

Understand the nature of impurity. If your key is bent, the lock will not open.
