According to Buddha

I would say that the thrust of my life has been initially about getting free, and then realizing that my freedom is not independent of everybody else. Then I am arriving at that circle where one works on oneself as a gift to other people so that one doesn’t create more suffering.

well we’re movin’ on up,
to the east side.
to a deluxe apartment in the sky.
movin’ on up
to the east side.
we finally got a piece of the pie.

where did the ravens come from? 
a nest, deep in the earth made of sticks and bones, 
and as the ravens cracked out of their shells and clawed their way to the surface their feathers were singed and burned to a shiny black.

According to Buddha

Be courageous and discipline yourself.
Work. Keep digging your well.
Don’t think about getting off from work.
Submit to a daily practice.
Your loyalty to that is a ring on the door.
Keep knocking, and the joy inside
will eventually open a window
and look out to see who’s there.

According to Buddha

Aging has its own beauty. It is a beautiful stage for doing inner work. You have a chance to not be so dependent on social approval. You can be a little more eccentric. You can be more alone. And you can examine loneliness and boredom instead of being afraid of them. There is such an art and a possibility of aging.

According to Buddha

Oh! I’m going to do good things for my child. Balony! That’s all ego. Just work on yourself: Every time you work on yourself, you get calmer, you hear more, you sense more, you are more, you’re more present. What are you offering a child? Not a set of social roles passing in the night. . .you’re offering a child here and now—ness. The treasure of consciousness. The treasure of awareness.
