According to Buddha

Half of life is lost in charming others. 
The other half is lost in going through anxieties caused by others. 
Leave this play. You have played enough.
the more i see, the less i know
the more i like to let it go
hey oh, whoa, whoa, whoa
deep beneath the cover of another perfect wonder
where it’s so white as snow
privately divided by a world so undecided
and there’s nowhere to go

Medium tensile carbon steel number

According to Buddha

The winter solstice is the time of ending and beginning, a powerful time…a time to contemplate your immortality. A time to forgive, to be forgiven, and to make a fresh start. A time to awaken. 

we stood
steady as the stars in the woods
so happy-hearted
and the warmth rang true inside these bones
as the old pine fell we sang
just to bless the morning

According to Buddha

Words do not express thoughts very well; every thing immediately becomes a little different, a little distorted, a little foolish. And yet it also pleases me and seems right that what is of value and wisdom of one human seems nonsense to another.

i ended up in search of ordinary things
how much of a tree bends in the wind
i started telling the story without knowing the end

According to Buddha

All sentient beings are exactly the same in that every one desires happiness and seeks to avoid misery. We are not isolated entities disconnected from each other. The happiness and suffering of other beings affect us. This mutual relation is obvious. Sentient beings have been kind and have benefited us directly and indirectly throughout beginningless time. These beings are intrinsically the same as us in their pursuit of happiness and effort to avoid suffering. Thus, it is essentially logical for us to train in cultivating an impartial attitude wishing for the happiness of all beings.

this is the dawn
this is the moment
release
stomp your feet on the back on the earth 
so she can breathe

According to Buddha

If, as in a dream, you see a light brighter than the sun, your remaining attachments will suddenly come to an end and the nature of reality will be revealed. Such an occurrence serves as the basis for enlightenment. But this is something only you know. 
You can’t explain it to others.

sunshine’s better on the other side
sunshine’s better when you make it shine
the sun shines better
sunshine’s better on the other side
the other side of the hill
the sun shines better.

According to Buddha

In all activities, may I examine my mind
And as soon as conflicting emotions arise,
Endangering myself and others,
May I firmly face and avert them.

unforgettable, though near or far
like a song of love that clings to me
how the thought of you does things to me
never before has someone been more
unforgettable in every way

According to Buddha

Keep walking, though there’s no place to get to. Don’t try to see through the distances. That’s not for human beings. Move within, But don’t move the way fear makes you move.

just keep me moving 
just keep me moving 
just keep me moving 
just keep me moving 
just keep me moving 
just keep me moving 
just keep me moving 
just keep me moving 
moving
moving, give me motion

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.

qu’elle est loin la fin du voyage
 
la glace de l’hiver a beau me mordre le corps
je me garde mon âme intacte encore
 
qu’elle est loin la fin du voyage

with her image on the wall –
and a place where she could rest
and a place where she could wash –
and listen to the wind blow.
