According to Buddha

The light of the sun is the manifestation of the clarity of the sky; and the sky is the basic condition necessary for the manifestation of the sun’s light. So, too, in the sky two, three, four, or any number of suns could arise; but the sky always remains indivisibly one sky. Similarly, every individual’s state of presence is unique and distinct, but the void nature of the individual is universal, and common to all beings.

just take it slow
the sun will show you where to go
trust your heart can help you see
i have seen the light, it settled me
just take it slow

According to Buddha

Cultivate doing good. It can be done. If it brought deprivation and sorrow, I would not ask you to do it. But since it brings blessing and happiness, I do ask of you: cultivate doing good.

do you come from a land down under
where women glow and men plunder
can’t you hear, can’t you hear the thunder
you better run, you better take cover
buying bread from a man in brussels
he was six foot four and full of muscle
i said, “do you speak-a my language?”
he just smiled and gave me a vegemite sandwich
and he said:

According to Buddha

We’re here to awaken from the illusion of separateness.

turned away from it all like a blind man.
sat on a fence, but it don’t work.
keep coming up with love, but it’s so slashed and torn.
 
this is our last dance.
this is our last dance.
this is ourselves.

According to Buddha

This being human is a guest house. Every morning is a new arrival. A joy, a depression, a meanness, some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor…Welcome and entertain them all.

taught the fear of jesus in a small town
used to daydream in that small town

According to Buddha

The thing is that this life is so precious and mysterious, I don’t know what to say about it most of the time. Words are like birds, passing through the trackless sky. The dog barking, the sound of the purling stream, the wind among the weeping willow trees: how are these not right off the tongue of the Buddha?

According to Buddha

Let your mind be as a floating cloud. Let your stillness be as a wooded glen. And sit up straight. You’ll never meet the Buddha with such rounded shoulders.

Montreal’s Jewish community ~ Outremont in Montréal, QC~ April 2019

Tatjana planet number

According to Buddha

Seekers inevitably want to get a better handle on life; we want to figure things out. We know intuitively that the events of our lives are not always arbitrary. We feel connected, however intangibly. We know that it is in our higher self-interest to unravel the mysteries in our own lives. There must be a higher purpose and greater meaning. As we become more and more spiritually evolved, we become more determined to find wisdom and reach a deeper understanding of our lives and our paths.

personne, personne
personne, personne

personne n’aime personne
personne ne manque à personne
personne ne pleure personne
pourquoi même en parler?

personne n’a tué personne
personne n’est mort pour personne
personne n’est enfant de personne
pourquoi même en parler?

According to Buddha

Whether we are young or old,
if people give rise to joy upon seeing us,
then this is true beauty.

my left hand’s got a permanent air guitar tick
but don’t confuse it with a crutch
’cause i like it a lot.
hey little one up there just playing possum,
wake up to smoke ’em from whence you got ’em.

Etown’s CHED radio station number

According to Buddha

I believe a time will come when in greater understanding we shall have no boundaries anymore. We shall call the earth our country; and we shall, by a process of justice and international assembly, distribute unselfishly the goods of the world according to the needs of the people. But equality cannot be established by force; it must come from the heart…

change for change sake
rearrange the landscape
shape your identity
change the world
otherwise you’re gonna witness
look on powerless
when the future generations turn
and wipe out history
and while we’re on the subject
of man’s destiny
i want you to give your change to me
