According to Buddha

Do not accept any of my words on faith,
Believing them just because I said them.
Be like an analyst buying gold, who cuts, burns, 
And critically examines her product for authenticity.
Only accept what passes the test 
By proving useful and beneficial in your life
.

you say your heart is like a library book
to love is to trust he’ll bring it back
if i go and take it home for good
would you be okay with that?
would you be okay with that?

According to Buddha

Half of life is lost in charming others. 
The other half is lost in going through anxieties caused by others. 
Leave this play. You have played enough.
the more i see, the less i know
the more i like to let it go
hey oh, whoa, whoa, whoa
deep beneath the cover of another perfect wonder
where it’s so white as snow
privately divided by a world so undecided
and there’s nowhere to go

According to Buddha

Be as careful as you can. Our minds are funny. Sometimes we are skeptical of things that are really worthwhile and completely accepting of things that we should avoid. Try to avoid extremes and follow the middle way, checking with wisdom wherever you go.

we’re on a road to nowhere
come on inside
takin’ that ride to nowhere
we’ll take that ride

According to Buddha

There are two kinds of happiness, mental happiness, and outer happiness. Outer happiness comes through meeting with an external object and is transitory. Mental happiness comes about through meditation and positive thought, it is stable and does not cause suffering. One cannot be happy if one does not have mental happiness, no matter how abundant the   external sources of outer happiness are, but if one is truly happy in one’s mind, then one is unaffected by outer problems.

you gotta swing your hips now
come on baby
a jump up oh, jump back
oh well, i think you’ve got the knack, oh-oh
 
(come on baby, do the locomotion)

According to Buddha

Everyone wants happiness,

like a feather in the light?
will you fly with me

According to Buddha

As human beings, we are all the same. So there is no need to build some kind of artificial barrier between us. At least my own experience is that if you have this kind of attitude, there is no barrier. 

it ain’t no joke, i’d like to buy the world a toke
and teach the world to sing in perfect harmony
and teach the world to snuff the fires and the liars
hey, i know it’s just a song but it’s spice for the recipe

According to Buddha

Sorrow prepares you for joy. It violently sweeps everything out of your house, so that new joy can find space to enter. It shakes the yellow leaves from the bough of your heart, so that fresh, green leaves can grow in their place. It pulls up the rotten roots, so that new roots hidden beneath have room to grow. Whatever sorrow shakes from your heart, far better things will take their place

all inside our amsterdam she hides
watery-eyed
that howling wind, she’s waving hi
her other hand’s in mine

According to Buddha

Then the usual everyday level of experience becomes altered; there is more ‘magic’ in the air. One can become ‘inspired’ or be on a ‘crusade’.

they both flew over the cuckoo’s nest one flew east and one flew west
they both flew over the cuckoo’s nest

According to Buddha

…Each one of us lacks one thing or another. I am not exactly sure what we lack, but I can feel we lack something. In the West, even if at the moment you are going through a crisis, you actually have everything, or at least you think you do; all kinds of material goods are there, and are no doubt distributed better than they were in the past. But it seems to me that you are living in a constant state of tension, in an atmosphere of never-ending competitiveness and fear. And those who are brought up in such an atmosphere will find themselves lacking all their lives: they will not know that wonderful quality of depth and intimacy that is the richness of life. They will stay on the surface of the troubled sea, without ever knowing the calm that lies beneath. 

may the long time sun
shine upon you
all love surround you
and the pure light
within you
guide your way on
guide your way on

According to Buddha

The fundamental delusion of humanity is to suppose that I am here and you are out there.

a new world hangs
outside the window
beautiful and strange
it must mean i’ve fallen away
i must be
