According to Buddha

There is no outside of you. It’s all an inside game.

time’s gone inside out
time gets distorted when
there’s intense gravity
i don’t got time for holy rollers
though they wash my feet
and i won’t be their soldier

According to Buddha

Usually when we hear or read something new, we just compare it to our own ideas. If it is the same, we accept it and say that it is correct. If it is not, we say it is incorrect. In either case, we learn nothing.

has our conscience shown?
has the sweet breeze blown?
has all the kindness gone?
hope still lingers on
are we listening
hymns of offering?
have we eyes to see
that love is gathering?

According to Buddha

And when you have the chance to stand somewhere where nobody’s watching you, and you can just look at people. I spend lots of time doing that.  Like, I’ll sit in a car on a street and watch people go by. I’ll just look at each one as somebody who is an absolutely exquisitely articulated entity unfolding before my eyes. Then they walk off, never to be seen again probably.

oh, that city music
oh, that city sound
oh, how you’re pulling my heart strings and
oh, let’s go downtown

where did the ravens come from? 
a nest, deep in the earth made of sticks and bones, 
and as the ravens cracked out of their shells and clawed their way to the surface their feathers were singed and burned to a shiny black.

According to Buddha

Once a very old king went to see an old hermit who lived in a bird’s nest in the top of a tree, “What is the most important Buddhist teaching?” The hermit answered, “Do no evil, do only good. Purify your heart.” The king had expected to hear a very long explanation. He protested, “But even a five-year old child can understand that!” “Yes,” replied the wise sage, “but even an 80-year-old man cannot do it.

we are the halluci nation
we are the human beings
the callers of names cannot see us but we can see them
we are the halluci nation

our dna is of the earth and sky
our dna is of past and future
we are the halluci nation
we are the evolution, the continuation
