According to Buddha

If you have never taken 
The principles of the teachings to heart, 
You have no basis 
For awakening to the hidden path. 

so, i’m at your house this morning
just a little after nine
’cause, it was in bobcaygeon
where i saw the constellations reveal themselves
one star at a time

According to Buddha

However deep your
Knowledge of the scriptures,
It is no more than a strand of hair
In the vastness of space;
However important appears
Your worldly experience,
It is but a drop of water in a deep ravine.

According to Buddha

Goodbyes are only for those who love with their eyes. Because for those who love with heart and soul there is no such thing as separation.

A true partner or friend is one who encourages you to look deep inside yourself for the beauty and love you’ve been seeking.

According to Buddha

Know all things to be like this: As an echo that derives from music, sounds, and weeping, Yet in that echo is no melody.

i was born here and i’ll die here against my will
i know it looks like i’m movin’ but i’m standin’ still
every nerve in my body is so naked and numb
i can’t even remember what it was i came here to get away from
don’t even hear the murmur of a prayer
it’s not dark yet but it’s gettin’ there

According to Buddha

Do not accept any of my words on faith,
Believing them just because I said them.
Be like an analyst buying gold, who cuts, burns, 
And critically examines her product for authenticity.
Only accept what passes the test 
By proving useful and beneficial in your life
.

you say your heart is like a library book
to love is to trust he’ll bring it back
if i go and take it home for good
would you be okay with that?
would you be okay with that?

According to Buddha

Be as careful as you can. Our minds are funny. Sometimes we are skeptical of things that are really worthwhile and completely accepting of things that we should avoid. Try to avoid extremes and follow the middle way, checking with wisdom wherever you go.

we’re on a road to nowhere
come on inside
takin’ that ride to nowhere
we’ll take that ride

According to Buddha

As human beings, we are all the same. So there is no need to build some kind of artificial barrier between us. At least my own experience is that if you have this kind of attitude, there is no barrier. 

it ain’t no joke, i’d like to buy the world a toke
and teach the world to sing in perfect harmony
and teach the world to snuff the fires and the liars
hey, i know it’s just a song but it’s spice for the recipe

According to Buddha

Then the usual everyday level of experience becomes altered; there is more ‘magic’ in the air. One can become ‘inspired’ or be on a ‘crusade’.

they both flew over the cuckoo’s nest one flew east and one flew west
they both flew over the cuckoo’s nest

According to Buddha

…Each one of us lacks one thing or another. I am not exactly sure what we lack, but I can feel we lack something. In the West, even if at the moment you are going through a crisis, you actually have everything, or at least you think you do; all kinds of material goods are there, and are no doubt distributed better than they were in the past. But it seems to me that you are living in a constant state of tension, in an atmosphere of never-ending competitiveness and fear. And those who are brought up in such an atmosphere will find themselves lacking all their lives: they will not know that wonderful quality of depth and intimacy that is the richness of life. They will stay on the surface of the troubled sea, without ever knowing the calm that lies beneath. 

may the long time sun
shine upon you
all love surround you
and the pure light
within you
guide your way on
guide your way on
