According to Buddha

On the mundane level, the clear comprehension of impermanence, suffering and non-self will bring us a saner outlook on life. It will free us from unrealistic expectations, bestow a courageous acceptance of suffering and failure and protect us against the lure of deluded assumptions and beliefs. In our quest for the supra-mundane comprehension of the three characteristics will be indispensable.

but i’m coming down the mountain again
get the word to all my good-time friends
the fishing was fine but fishing comes to an end
i’m coming down the mountain again

“And what, bhikkhus, are the seven principles of non-decline?

As long as they develop the perception of non-self . . . 
. . . . the perception of attractiveness . . .
. . . . the perception of danger . . .
. . . . the perception of abandoning . . .
. . . . the perception of dispassion . . .

Only growth is to be expected for them, not decline.”

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.
