As you start to walk on the way, the way appears.

the dog days are over
the dog days are done
can’t you hear the horses
’cause here they come

According to Buddha

To stay with that shakiness—to stay with a broken heart, with a rumbling stomach, with the feelings of hopelessness and wanting to get revenge—that is the path of true awakening.  Sticking with that uncertainty, getting the knack of relaxing in the midst of chaos, learning not to panic—this is the spiritual path.  Getting the knack of catching ourselves, of gently and compassionately catching ourselves is the path of the warrior.  We catch ourselves one zillion times as once again, whether we like it or not, we harden into resentment, into a sense of relief, a sense of inspiration.

so let’s take the streets, 
see what people need, 
make some kids and keep ‘em safe, 
hold on tight through every night, 
these walls will see us both go.

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.

According to Buddha

Everything changes once we identify with being the witness to the story, instead of the actor in it.

that’s the way it goes
that’s the way it goes
it’s so satisfying

According to Buddha

To be fully alive, fully human and completely awake is to be continually thrown out of the nest. To live fully is to be always in no-man’s land, to experience each moment as completely new and fresh. To live is to be willing to die over and over again.

and instead of saying all of your goodbyes, let them know
you realize that life goes fast
it’s hard to make the good things last
you realize the sun doesn’t go down
it’s just an illusion caused by the world spinning round

According to Buddha

If you think you are enlightened; go home for Thanksgiving.

laugh, oh laugh a little apple
autumn is waitin’, you’d better be careful,
for it will bring you down
if it ever sees you wearing a frown
 
so laugh, laugh a little apple

The next message you need is always right where you are.

i want to give directions, helpful hints

According to Buddha

In our Western culture, although death has come out of the closet, it is still not openly experienced or discussed. Allowing dying to be so intensely present enriches both the preciousness of each moment and our detachment from it.

when i was just a little girl
i asked my mother, what will i be
will i be pretty
will i be rich
here’s what she said to me

que será, será
whatever will be, will be
the future’s not ours to see
que será, será
what will be, will be

According to Buddha

The mind: A beautiful servant, a dangerous master.

bones - 1_

bones -2_

bones -3_

the dangerous kitchen
if it ain’t one thing it’s another
in the middle of the night when you get home
the bread things are all dry ‘n’ scratchy
the meat things
where the cats ate through the paper
the can things with the sharp little edges
that can cut your fingers when you’re not looking
the soft little things on the floor that you step on
they can all be dangerous

However many holy words you read, however many you speak, what good will they do you if you do not act on upon them?

Их л удаан идэж уугаад наргиж цэнгээд хачин юм бэ юу вэ юу вэ юув
Эцэг өвгөд Монгол гээд л цээжээ
дэлдэн худлаа орилох нь юу вэ юу вэ юув
Эргэж буцаад хэлсэн үгэндээ эзэн
болдоггүй андгай өргөдөг нь юу вэ юу вэ юув
Эцэг эхийн захиж хэлсэн үнэт сургааль
үнэгүй болдог нь юу вэ юу вэ юув, юу вэ юу вэ юув
Ээ дүлзэн сөгд сөгд
Ээ лүндэн бууг бууг, бууг бууг
Дээдсийн заяаг удамлаж төрчихөөд унтаж
