and still, according to Buddha

After first examining one’s means, one should either begin or not begin. Surely, it is better not to begin than to turn back once one has begun.

According to Buddha

Three things, O disciples, shine before the world and cannot be hidden. What are the three? The moon, O disciples, illumines the world and cannot be hidden; the sun, O disciples, illumines the world and cannot be hidden; and the truth proclaimed by the Tathagata illumines the world and cannot be hidden. These three things, O disciples, illumine the world and cannot be hidden. There is no secrecy about them.

According to Buddha

All the wonders of life are already here. They’re calling you. If you can listen to them, you will be able to stop running. What you need, what we all need, is silence. Stop the noise in your mind in order for the wondrous sounds of life to be heard. Then you can begin to live your life authentically and deeply.

when it’s not always raining there’ll be days like this
when there’s no one complaining there’ll be days like this
when everything falls into place like the flick of a switch
 
when everyone is up front and they’re not playing tricks, yeah
when you don’t have no freeloaders, out to get their kicks, yeah
when it’s nobody’s business, the way that you want to live
i just have to remember, there’ll be days like this
 
oh my mama told me, there’ll be days like this
oh my mama told me, there’ll be days like this

According to Buddha

There are times of flourishing and abundance, when life feels in full bloom, energized and expanding. And there are times of fruition, when things come to an end. They have reached their climax and must be harvested before they begin to fade.

there is a lonesome old buffalo 
roaming on the plains all alone 
he does not have anybody 
he doesn’t even have a home 
he stands quiet in the morning star 
his shaggy head is hanging low 
oh but his dreams fly high as the sky alright

According to Buddha

When was the last time you looked up and marvelled at a starry night? Do you see the myriad colours and shapes in all you see? Do you stop and smell the scent of the roses? Do you taste the rich flavours of every meal? Do you feel and enjoy the hot shower at the end of a hard day’s work? And perhaps more importantly, are you mindful of your mind, of your thoughts and feelings? Without mental mindfulness, there is no mindfulness of the senses.

there’s a mad dog pulling at his chain
a hint of danger in his eye
alarm bells raging round his brain
and the chimney’s broken in the sky
 
wake up
wake up and smell the roses

According to Buddha

With a boundless mind, one could cherish all living beings, radiating friendliness over the entire world, above, below, and all around without limit.

According to Buddha

People cleave to their worldly possessions and selfish passions so blindly as to sacrifice their own lives for them. They are like a child who tries to eat a little honey smeared on the edge of a knife. The amount is by no means sufficient to appease their appetite, but they run the risk of wounding the tongue.

honey honey, how you thrill me, a-ha, honey honey
honey honey, nearly kill me, a-ha, honey honey
i’d heard about you before
i wanted to know some more

According to Buddha

Know all things to be like this:
A mirage, a cloud castle,
A dream, an apparition,
Without essence, but with qualities that can be seen.

on a clear day,
rise and look around you,
and you’ll see who you are.
 
you can hear from far and near
a world you’ve never heard before.

According to Buddha.

It is almost impossible to practice loving-kindness towards all living beings without addressing, in a meaningful way, the innumerable problems arising in our own lives. It is a contradiction, you see. It does not work. If our heart is tormented because we are not able to accept things the way they are, then it is impossible to open our heart. It is impossible to let go of all of our defenses and embrace others. Therefore we have to constantly practice and deepen our awareness. We have to remind ourselves to accept things as they are…even reciting slogans, phrases like “I shall accept the way things are.”

when i was a little girl
and the devil would call my name
and i’d say, “who do, who

oh, my mama loves me, she loves me
she gets down on her knees and hugs me
yeah, she loves me like a rock
she rocks me like the rock of ages
she loves me

According to Buddha

Remind yourself that all sentient beings have at one time been your mother—birthing you, nursing you, caring for you through a helpless stage of life. Imagine this and generate appreciation and goodwill for all sentient beings, whether they cut you off in traffic, compliment your smile, or walk past you without a glance.

i see the… 
line of all the broken hearts 
lining up to tell their side
to the already one sided told story
