According to Buddha

The fundamental delusion of humanity is to suppose that I am here and you are out there.

a new world hangs
outside the window
beautiful and strange
it must mean i’ve fallen away
i must be

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

Look at appearance-emptiness forms,
Listen to sound and emptiness sounds,
Rest in mind's nature, clarity-emptiness,
And when your thoughts free themselves,
Laugh, oh laugh "Ha ha! Hee hee!
never saw the sun shining so bright
never saw things going so right
noticing the days hurrying by
when you’re in love, my how they fly
blue days
all of them gone
nothing but blue skies
from now on

According to Buddha

It is also possible within this lifetime to enhance the power of the mind, enabling one to reaccess memories from previous lives. Such recollection tends to be more accessible during meditative experiences in the dream state. Once one has accessed memories of previous lives in the dream state, one gradually recalls them in the waking state.

strange things are happening everyday
i hear the music up above my head
though the sight of my heart has left me again
i hear music up above

According to Buddha

So resolve yourselves. It’s not just by sitting with your eyes closed that you develop wisdom. Eyes, ears, nose, tongue, body and mind are constantly with us, so be constantly alert. Study constantly. Seeing trees or animals can all be occasions for study. Bring it all inwards. See clearly within your own heart. If some sensation makes impact on the heart, witness it clearly for yourself, don’t simply disregard it.

i know somewhere
there is a party going down
interesting people
conversation to be found
i’ve lived in cities
where there is no solitude
i’ve made some friends here
that i hope i never lose
but, for now
i want to stay in this quiet town

Although gold dust is precious, when it gets in your eyes, it obstructs your vision.

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

Self-confidence is not a feeling of superiority, but of independence.
We have to understand the middle path: that a human has a positive and a negative side. 
We have a false, ignorant side, but we also have a beautiful potential.
follow, follow the sun
and which way the wind blows
when this day is done
breath, breath in the air
set your intentions
dream with care
tomorrow is a new day for everyone

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

the fishing was fine but fishing comes to an end
i’m coming down the mountain again
