According to Buddha

Of the three ways to expand human consciousness into cosmic consciousness, the first is the social way, wherein you shut out self and live for all. Be loyal to your friends, and feel love for everyone.

i know you’ll never bring me flowers
flowers they will only die
and though we’ll never take a shower together
i know you’ll never make me cry

you never argue, you don’t even talk
and i like the way you let me lead you
when we go outside and walk

will you really be my only man of the hour?

According to Buddha

If a wet battery, which is sustained by electricity and dependent on replenishment of its water supply (in an old type battery it was necessary to regularly add water to wet batteries to replace that which was lost in evaporation) could somehow be converted into a dry battery, it could do away with dependence on water and be sustained by its own reservoir of energy recharged solely by electricity.

According to Buddha

There can be no images of light without contrasting shadows. Unless evil had been created, man would not know the opposite, good. Night brings out the bright contrast of day; sorrow teaches us the desirability of joy.

and all the streets, they reek of tropical charms
the embassies lie in hideous shards
where tourists snore and decay
when they dance in a reptile blaze
you wear a mask, an equatorial haze
into the past, a colonial maze

According to Buddha

Untrained warriors are soon killed on the battlefield; so also persons untrained in the art of preserving their inner peace are quickly riddled by the bullets of worry and restlessness in active life…The schools should educate young students in this art, and in how to develop calmness and concentration.

standing, on the edge of forever,
at the start of whatever,
shouting love at the world.
back then, we were like cavemen,
but we map the moon and the stars,
then we forgave them.
we will meet you where the lights are,
the defenders, of the faith we are.

turn the clock back to find
a film that plays
with closed eyes you see it clear as day
climbing trees to unwind
the altitude eased your mind
you’re dreaming of your escape

untie my hand and show me where to go now

According to Buddha

It is not your passing thoughts or brilliant ideas so much as your plain everyday habits that control your life…Live simply. Don’t get caught in the machine of the world — it is too exacting. By the time you get what you are seeking your nerves are gone, the heart is damaged, and the bones are aching. Resolve to develop your spiritual powers more earnestly from now on. Learn the art of right living. If you have joy you have everything, so learn to be glad and contented…Have happiness now.

According to Buddha

Introspection, or ‘sitting in the silence,’ is an unscientific way of trying to force apart the mind and senses, tied together by the life force. The contemplative mind, attempting its return to divinity, is constantly dragged back toward the senses by the life currents.

i’m just the man in the middle
of a complicated plan.
no one to show me the signs.
i’m just a creature of habit
in a complicated world.
nowhere to run to.
nowhere to hide, to hide, to hide, to hide….

According to Buddha

Millions of people never analyze themselves. Mentally they are mechanical products of the factory of their environment, preoccupied with breakfast, lunch, and dinner, working and sleeping, and going here and there to be entertained. They don’t know what or why they are seeking, nor why they never realize complete happiness and lasting satisfaction. By evading self-analysis, people go on being robots, conditioned by their environment. True self-analysis is the greatest art of progress.

eu estou ficando cansada
de viver sem teu amor
e já quase não sinto mais nada
pois vivo sem teu calor

qualquer dia você volta
e encontra a casa vazia
não quero que a vida passe
sem alegria

we both hate the holidays
our parents act crazy
and the mall is insane
let’s skip it all this year
and have a non-traditional, non-denominational celebration
Christmas with you is the best
we’ll have no turkey or guests
sleeping late but before we get dressed
i want to give you a present
i want to give you a present
