According to Buddha

Every religion is the product of the conceptual mind attempting to describe the mystery.

remember me
(remember me)
when the sun comes up in the morning sky
there i will be
(there i will be)
soaring with the eagle so high feeling free
remember me
when the sun comes up in the morning sky
down the road
hand in hand

The problem with certainty is that it is static; it can do little but endlessly reassert itself. Uncertainty, by contrast, is full of unknowns, possibilities, and risks.

According to Buddha

Only the wise know just where predestination ends and free will begins. Meanwhile, you must keep on doing your best, according to your own clearest understanding. You must long for freedom as the drowning human longs for air.

’cause i don’t care if you’re going nowhere
just take good care of the world
i don’t care if you’re going nowhere
just take good care of the world

According to Buddha

Ultimately you live simultaneously in all of the planes of consciousness all the time, so that in a way, it’s like a vertical cut up – you look at somebody, they’re there; they’re not there. 

ten fingers, ten laws that i live by.
(ten fingers, ten laws that i live by,
like all signs they keep me on track)

According to Buddha

Unconditional love really exists in each of us. It is part of our deep inner being. It is not so much an active emotion as a state of being. It’s not ‘I love you’ for this or that reason, not ‘I love you if you love me.’ It’s love for no reason, love without an object.

According to Buddha

Empty cognizance is our nature. Empty means “not made out of anything whatsoever”; our nature has always been this way. Yet, while being empty, it has the capacity to cognize, to experience, to perceive. It’s not so difficult to comprehend this; to get the theory that this empty cognizance is Buddha nature, self-existing wakefulness. But to leave it at that is the same as looking at the buffet and not eating anything. It’s like staying hungry. Once we put the food in our mouth, we discover what the food tastes like. This illustrates the dividing line between idea and experience.

if you have two, give one to your friend
if you have three, give one to your friend and me
it’s always more fun
to share with everyone
it’s always more fun
to share with everyone

According to Buddha

Duality is the real root of our suffering and of all our conflicts. All our concepts and beliefs, no matter how profound they may seem, are like nets which trap us in dualism. When we discover our limits we have to try to overcome them, untying ourselves from whatever type of religious, political, or social conviction may contain us. We have to abandon such concepts as ‘enlightenment’, ‘the nature of the mind’, and so on, until we no longer neglect to integrate our knowledge with our actual existence.

and oh, how our glory may fade
fade, well, at least we’ve learned
some things along the way

and we can see life hand in hand
the green, the blue, the rock, the sand
and in our time and in our land, we’ll savour every day

According to Buddha

Compassion does not see the faults of others.  It does not see the weaknesses of people.  It makes no distinction between good and bad people.  Compassion cannot draw a line between two countries, two faiths or two religions.  Compassion has no ego; thus there is no fear, lust or passion.  Compassion simply forgives and forgets. Compassion is like a passage.  Everything passes through it.  Nothing can stay there.  Compassion is love expressed in all its fullness.

According to Buddha

Being grateful to our parents is the foundation of being a decent person. We exist because of our parents. Our mothers suffered a great deal during pregnancy and while giving birth, much like the earth having to endure much ordeal as plants grow out of the ground.

turn up your radio loud
don’t forget where you come from
it’s too soon to be proud

remember when
we… were… young
