According to Buddha

In all truly sacred traditions there is an essential resolve to cherish life and treat others ethically and kindly. All these traditions encourage us to be open to divine presence, both within and without, and tell us ‘to practice what we preach’ without hypocrisy or sleight of hand. For many, this message is of essential importance no matter who is carrying it.

if you want to meet me come on down
if you want to see me on the town
i will bring some of my mistakes
and you will bring a smile right to my face

Meditate upon the teacher as the glow of your awareness,
When you melt and mingle together,
Taste that expanse of nonduality.
There remain.

down where the gulls dance driftwood lying drying for the fire
yellow beak and sleek now the gulls are crying flying higher
out from the sea came a little green crab
taking the Sun the morning being very drab
old rusty cans, pebbles ‘bedded in the sand stand and stare

a spaceman came travelling on his ship from afar,
’twas light years of time since his mission did start,
and over a village he halted his craft,
and it hung in the sky like a star, just like a star

down the ditches a thousand years
the waters grew ira’s peoples’ crops
’til the white man stole their water rights
and the sparkling water stopped
now, ira’s folks were hungry
and their land grew crops of weeds
when war came, ira volunteered
and forgot the white man’s greed

According to Buddha

Your search among books, word upon word, may lead you to the depths of knowledge, but it is not the way to receive the reflection of your true self. When you have thrown off your ideas as to mind and body, the original truth will fully appear.

Environment is stronger than will power. If you want to be spiritual, seek good company and don’t mix with those whose bad habits may wrongly influence you.

if you love somebody
better tell them while they’re here
’cause they just may run away from you

’cause i’m on top of the world,
i’m on top of the world,
waiting on this for a while now
paying my dues to the dirt
i’ve been waiting to smile,
been holding it in for a while,
take you with me if i can
been dreaming of this since a child

According to Buddha

I enjoy everything, but I have no desire for anything, so there is never any pain or disappointment from unfulfillment. Whatever I do, wherever I go, I enjoy myself.

if this life is one act
why do we lay all these traps
we put them right in our path
when we just wanna be free

i will not waste my days
making up all kinds of ways
to worry about all the things
that will not happen to me

so i just let go of what i know i don’t know
and i know i only do this by
living in the moment
