According to Buddha

All the wonders of life are already here. They’re calling you. If you can listen to them, you will be able to stop running. What you need, what we all need, is silence. Stop the noise in your mind in order for the wondrous sounds of life to be heard. Then you can begin to live your life authentically and deeply.

when it’s not always raining there’ll be days like this
when there’s no one complaining there’ll be days like this
when everything falls into place like the flick of a switch
 
when everyone is up front and they’re not playing tricks, yeah
when you don’t have no freeloaders, out to get their kicks, yeah
when it’s nobody’s business, the way that you want to live
i just have to remember, there’ll be days like this
 
oh my mama told me, there’ll be days like this
oh my mama told me, there’ll be days like this

According to Buddha

Profound and tranquil, free from complexity,
Uncompounded luminous clarity,
Beyond the mind of conceptual ideas;
This is the depth of the mind of the Victorious Ones.
In this there is not a thing to be removed,
Nor anything that needs to be added.
It is merely the immaculate
Looking naturally at itself.

According to Buddha

Know all things to be like this:
A mirage, a cloud castle,
A dream, an apparition,
Without essence, but with qualities that can be seen.

on a clear day,
rise and look around you,
and you’ll see who you are.
 
you can hear from far and near
a world you’ve never heard before.

According to Buddha.

It is almost impossible to practice loving-kindness towards all living beings without addressing, in a meaningful way, the innumerable problems arising in our own lives. It is a contradiction, you see. It does not work. If our heart is tormented because we are not able to accept things the way they are, then it is impossible to open our heart. It is impossible to let go of all of our defenses and embrace others. Therefore we have to constantly practice and deepen our awareness. We have to remind ourselves to accept things as they are…even reciting slogans, phrases like “I shall accept the way things are.”

when i was a little girl
and the devil would call my name
and i’d say, “who do, who

oh, my mama loves me, she loves me
she gets down on her knees and hugs me
yeah, she loves me like a rock
she rocks me like the rock of ages
she loves me

According to Buddha

I, the snow lioness who stays in snowy solitudes, Have milk which is like the essential nectar. In the absence of golden cups, I would not pour it in an ordinary vessel.

then without a warning
another winter storm comes raging through
and the mercury’s fallin’
i’m left all alone
just like spring time in alberta
chills me to the bone

According to Buddha

Sometimes we feel that one individual’s action is very insignificant. Then we think, of course, that effects should come from channeling or from a unifying movement. But the movement of the society, community or group of people means joining individuals. Society means a collection of individuals, so that initiative must come from individuals. Unless each individual develops a sense of responsibility, the whole community cannot move. So therefore, it is very essential that we should not feel that individual effort is meaningless – you should not feel that way. We should make an effort.

According to Buddha

Surrender means surrendering who you are not, so that who you really are may emerge.
You are not what you think, you are not what you believe, you are not what you like or dislike.
Those are the adopted filters which speak through you.

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
