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

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

A true partner or friend is one who encourages you to look deep inside yourself for the beauty and love you’ve been seeking.

you can count on me like one, two, three
i’ll be there
and i know when i need it, i can count on you like four, three, two
and you’ll be there

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.

a new world hangs
outside the window
beautiful and strange
it must mean i’ve fallen away
i must be

According to Buddha

Every religion is the product of the conceptual mind attempting to describe the mystery.

remember me
(remember me)
when the sun comes up in the morning sky
there i will be
(there i will be)
soaring with the eagle so high feeling free
remember me
when the sun comes up in the morning sky
down the road
hand in hand

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

I have a thirsty fish in me
that can never find enough
of what it’s thirsty for.

According to Buddha

The problem with certainty is that it is static; it can do little but endlessly reassert itself. Uncertainty, by contrast, is full of unknowns, possibilities, and risks.

According to Buddha

The soul is not part of the incarnation. It comes into the incarnation. And the soul is not afraid of death because it has done it so many times.

when you know the moneys from day to day
all the majesty of a city landscape
all the soaring days of our lives
all the concrete dreams in my mind’s eye
all the joy i see through these architect’s eyes
