According to Buddha

No matter how busy we are, we should not forget now and then to free our minds completely from worries and all duties….Try to remain for one minute at a time without thinking negatively, fixing the mind on the peace within, especially if worried. Then try to remain for several minutes with a quiet mind. Following that, think of some happy incident; dwell on it and visualize it; mentally go through some pleasant experience over and over again until you have forgotten your worries entirely.

they’ll cook us dinner
from the farm that we saw
all summer
brimming over
field of clover
yellow side road
a cold wind is blowing in
let’s go

The treasure of friendship is your richest possession, because it goes with you beyond this life. All the true friends you have made you will meet again…for real love is never lost.

i can not remember when
the last time i saw my home and all my friends

but they tell me my life
has never been better

and so i try to make believe
that all the time i spend away is endlessly
making everything so much better

then the loud sound did seem to fade
came back like a slow voice on a wave of phase
that weren’t no d.j. that was hazy cosmic jive
there’s a starman waiting in the sky
he’d like to come and meet us
but he thinks he’d blow our minds

According to Buddha

This life is strange. Everything is subject to change. That is why one should not anchor one’s happiness on this life. Our time will pass on; what you are seeing now will be gone one day. Change is good if you don’t let it hurt you. When it does hurt, the rebellion you feel is meant to show you that you should not have any desires.

that we could be so close, like brothers
the future’s in the air
i can feel it everywhere
blowing with the wind of change

spotless is my mental sky,
below, ahead, and high above.
eternity and i, one united ray.
i, a tiny bubble of laughter,
have become the sea of mirth itself.

i got a cabin in the country
and the tin roof rattles
when the rain comes down
where the wind through the pine
helps me unwind
while the world goes ’round
i’m gonna live, laugh, love, just for today
gonna take all the trouble and put it away
gonna drink every drop of happiness
’til they cover me up
i’m gonna live, gonna laugh, gonna love

According to Buddha

True friendship consists in being mutually useful in offering one’s friend good cheer in distress, sympathy in sorrow, advice in trouble, and material help in times of real need. Friendship consists in rejoicing in the good fortune of one’s friends and in sympathizing with them in adversity. One who has given his friendship to another gladly foregoes selfish pleasures or self-interest for the sake of his friend’s happiness, without consciousness of loss or sacrifice, and without counting the cost.

muskrat susie, muskrat sam
do the jitterbug out in muskrat land
and they shimmy
and sammy’s so skinny
and they whirled and they twirled and they tangoed
singin’ and jingin’ the jango
floatin’ like the heavens above
it looks like muskrat love

feeling my way through the darkness
guided by a beating heart
i can’t tell where the journey will end
but i know where to start
they tell me i’m too young to understand
they say i’m caught up in a dream
well life will pass me by if i don’t open up my eyes
well that’s fine by me
so wake me up when it’s all over
when i’m wiser and i’m older
all this time i was finding myself
and i didn’t know i was lost

i opened my mouth to scream and shout
waved my arms and flapped about
but i couldn’t scream i couldn’t shout,
the song was coming from my mouth.
from my mouth,
from my mouth,
from my mouth.

but in my dreams began to creep
that old familiar tweet tweet tweet

According to Buddha

Humanity has been sleeping—and still sleeps—lulled within the narrowly confining joys of its little closed loves. In the depths of the human multitude there slumbers an immense spiritual power which will manifest itself only when we have learnt how to break through the dividing walls of our egoism and raise ourselves up to an entirely new perspective, so that habitually and in a practical fashion we fix our gaze on the universal realities.

lying in the bed at night
feeling like i’m somebody else
my thoughts inside my head get lost inside the haunted house
everyone i used to know left their dreams by the door
i accidentally kick ’em that’s how i can tell you’re still not sure
and all the walls we build they rise and they fall

you heard my voice, i came out of the woods by choice
shelter also gave their shade
but in the dark i have no name
so leave that click in my head
and i will remember the words that you said
left a clouded mind and a heavy heart
but i am sure we could see a new start
so when your hopes on fire
but you know your desire
don’t hold a glass over the flame
don’t let your heart grow cold
i will call you by name
i will share your road
