to stare at the sky
i am wide open
reaching forever
i fly into the blue
i am wide open
reaching forever
i fly into the blue
flat mark
high tide
frantic to stay afloat
stay calm
let in some air i dare lie down
to stare at the sky
i am wide open
reaching forever
i fly into the blue

they paved paradise
and put up a parking lot
with a pink hotel, a boutique
and a swinging hot spot
don’t it always seem to go
that you don’t know what you’ve got
’till it’s gone
they paved paradise
and put up a parking lot

According to Buddha

I find my earliest memories covering the anachronistic features of a previous incarnation. Clear recollections came to me of a distant life, a yogi amidst the Himalayan snows. These glimpses of the past, by some dimensionless link, also afforded me a glimpse of the future.

there’s dawn on the mountain
twilight on the town
but i’m there in the spirit

times so pretty
that the teardrops healed the rust
i was turning over stones
looking for someone to trust

you were there in the spirit
are there in the spirit?
are you there?
i’m there in the spirit.

According to Buddha

Am I the ocean? It is too small, A dream dewdrop on the azure blades of space. Am I the sky? It is too small, A lake in the bosom of eternity. Am I eternity? It is too small, Framed in a name. In the vast region of namelessness I love to dwell, Beyond limits of dreams, names, conceptions. I am what I am always — In the ever-present past, In the ever-present future, In the ever-present now.

here’s what we know
we don’t know what we’ve got or if we’ve got it
and what we had, we already forgot it
the race is evidently to the bottom
we don’t, we don’t, we don’t know what to say
don’t know what it was but we want it back

According to Buddha

One-half minute of revolution of energy around the sensitive spinal cord of man effects subtle progress in his evolution; that half-minute of Kriya equals one year of natural spiritual unfoldment.

you say you want a revolution
well, you know
we all want to change the world
you tell me that it’s evolution
well, you know
we all want to change the world
but when you talk about destruction
don’t you know that you can count me out
don’t you know it’s gonna be alright
alright, alright

we are not alone
and we are more alone
so hurry up and lose me
hurry up and find me
again
so i’ll pass
the lumber mills
i’ll pass the coal mines
and the parks
and the dried up oil fields
i’ll pass a thousand lonely pines
that bend their backs against the sun

According to Buddha

Realize that you are not really a fleshly being; neither categorize yourself as a Hindu nor as an American, or any other conception you may have of yourself that is limiting and sense-bound. It is wrong to say that we are mortals when we are essentially immortal. It is the truth that we are gods, and it is wrong to call ourselves weaklings.

the heart has a way
of pushing you though the darkest days
we live in our mind
and it makes us all forget sometimes
can make life hard to tell
but if you can take a moment
and just listen to your heart
you will find there something to relive the pressure

Suffering is a good teacher to those who are quick and willing to learn from it. But it becomes a tyrant to those who resist and resent.

According to Buddha

Why be elated by material profit?” Father replied. “The one who pursues a goal of even-mindedness is neither jubilant with gain nor depressed by loss. He knows that man arrives penniless in this world, and departs without a single rupee.

by the sidewalk there with the cracks in it
with the mexican restaurant next to it
with the clothes for the big and the fat in it
and the moth ball smell to the hats in it
is the lonely little thrift store,
the hard luck little thrift store where i go
