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.

when i was just a little girl
i asked my mother, what will i be
will i be pretty
will i be rich
here’s what she said to me

que será, será
whatever will be, will be
the future’s not ours to see
que será, será
what will be, will be

now the angel’s got a fiddle
the devil’s got a harp
every soul is like a minnow
every mind is like a shark
i’ve broken every window
but the house, the house is dark
i care but very little
i’ve come here to revisit
what happens to the heart

now what happens to the heart

According to Buddha

Die to all that, and fly free. Soar in the freedom of desirelessness. Let go. Let Be. See through everything and be free, complete, luminous, at home — at ease.

summer’s end’s around the bend just flyin’
the swimmin’ suits are on the line just dryin’
i’ll meet you there for our conversation
i hope i didn’t ruin your whole vacation

just come on home
come on home
no you don’t have to
be alone

According to Buddha

When walking, as we step one foot forward, we lift the other foot up.  In the same way, we should let go of yesterday and focus on today.

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.
