According to Buddha

Grief can be the garden of compassion. If you keep your heart open through everything, your pain can become your greatest ally in your life’s search for love and wisdom.

there’s a place i’m going
no one knows me
if i breathe real slowly
i let it out and let it in
 
it can be terrifying
to be slowly dying
also, clarifying
we end where we begin
 
so let it wash over me
i’m ready to lose my feet
take me off to the place where one reveals life’s mystery

The shadow is the greatest teacher for how to come to the light.

well i know i had it all on the line
but don’t just seat with folded hands
and become blind
’cause even when there is no star in sight
you’ll always be my only guiding light

According to Buddha

The minute I heard my first love story,
I started looking for you, not knowing
how blind that was.
Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere.
They’re in each other all along.

According to Buddha

As we grow in our consciousness, there will be more compassion and more love, and then the barriers between people, between religions, between nations will begin to fall. Yes, we have to beat down the separateness.

According to Buddha

Things falling apart is a kind of testing and also a kind of healing.  We think the point is to pass the test or to overcome the problem, but the truth is that things don’t really get solved.  They come together and they fall apart.  Then they come together again and fall apart again.  It’s just like that.  The healing comes from letting there be room for all of this to happen: room for grief, for relief, for misery, for joy.

once there was a song, the song yearned to be sung
it was a spinning song about the king of rock ‘n’ roll
the king was first a young prince, the prince was the best
with his black jelly hair he crashed onto a stage in vegas
the king had a queen, the queen’s hair was a stairway
she tended the castle garden, and in the garden planted a tree
the garden tree was a stairway, it was sixteen branches high
on the top branch was a nest, sing the high cloudy nest
in the nest there was a bird, the bird had a wing
the wing had a feather, spin the feather and sing the wind

According to Buddha

Along with the peach and the citrus, pomegranates are one of the “Three Blessed Fruits” of Buddhist tradition. The story goes that there was a powerful female demon (known as Hariti in India and Kishimo-jin or Karitei-mo in Japan) who kidnapped young children and feasted on them. The Buddha, however, managed to placate her ferocious desire by offering her pomegranates. Soothed by the Buddha’s compassion, she acquired a gentler nature and became the patron goddess of children. She is sometimes depicted holding a pomegranate in one hand a suckling a baby with the other.
