According to Buddha

If, as in a dream, you see a light brighter than the sun, your remaining attachments will suddenly come to an end and the nature of reality will be revealed. Such an occurrence serves as the basis for enlightenment. But this is something only you know. 
You can’t explain it to others.

sunshine’s better on the other side
sunshine’s better when you make it shine
the sun shines better
sunshine’s better on the other side
the other side of the hill
the sun shines better.

According to Buddha

In all activities, may I examine my mind
And as soon as conflicting emotions arise,
Endangering myself and others,
May I firmly face and avert them.

unforgettable, though near or far
like a song of love that clings to me
how the thought of you does things to me
never before has someone been more
unforgettable in every way

According to Buddha

May everyone be happy and safe, and may their hearts be filled with joy… Just as a mother loves and protects her only child at the risk of her own life, we should cultivate boundless love to offer to all living beings in the entire cosmos. Let our boundless love pervade the whole universe, above, below, and across. Whether standing or walking, sitting or lying, as long as we are awake, we should maintain this mindfulness of love in our own heart. This is the noblest way of living.

According to Buddha

On the mundane level, the clear comprehension of impermanence, suffering and non-self will bring us a saner outlook on life. It will free us from unrealistic expectations, bestow a courageous acceptance of suffering and failure and protect us against the lure of deluded assumptions and beliefs. In our quest for the supra-mundane comprehension of the three characteristics will be indispensable.

but i’m coming down the mountain again

the fishing was fine but fishing comes to an end
i’m coming down the mountain again

According to Buddha

The spiritual journey is individual, highly personal. It can’t be organized or regulated. It isn’t true that everyone should follow one path. Listen to your own truth.

so give the stars to the lonely city

i let my tired eyes loose
