According to Buddha

Abstaining from lying, from tale-bearing, from harsh language, and from vain talk; this is called the Mundane Right Speech which yields worldly fruits and brings good results.

your life is now your life is now your life is now
in this undiscovered moment
lift your head up above the crowd
we could shake this world
if you would only show us how
your life is now

According to Buddha

Suppose you are going to be punished by not being allowed to go to sleep when you are desperately in need of rest, and suddenly someone says: “All right, you may go to sleep now.” Think of the joy you would feel just before falling asleep.

we both hate the holidays
our parents act crazy
and the mall is insane
let’s skip it all this year
and have a non-traditional, non-denominational celebration
Christmas with you is the best
we’ll have no turkey or guests
sleeping late but before we get dressed
i want to give you a present
i want to give you a present

According to Buddha

The word “death” is a great misnomer, for there is no death; when you are tired of life, you simply take off the overcoat of flesh and go back to the astral world.

don’t you ever laugh as the hearse goes by,
for you may be the next one to die.
they wrap you up in big white sheets
and cover you from head to feet.
they put you in a big black box
and cover you with dirt and rocks.
all goes well for about a week,
until your coffin begins to leak.
the worms crawl in, the worms crawl out,
the worms play pinochle on your snout,
they eat your eyes, they eat your nose,
they eat the jelly between your toes.

they paved paradise
and put up a parking lot
with a pink hotel, a boutique
and a swinging hot spot
don’t it always seem to go
that you don’t know what you’ve got
’till it’s gone
they paved paradise
and put up a parking lot

the light is blinding my eyes

Be honest with yourself.
The world is not honest with you.
When you are honest with yourself
you find the road to inner peace.

According to Buddha

Truths are not truths to you unless you realize them within yourself. Without realization, they are just ideas. For perception, consciousness, lies not in vague ideas, but in the acquisition of Self-realization.

According to Buddha

Love gives without expecting anything in return. I never think of anyone in terms of what he can do for me. And I never profess love to someone because he has done something for me. If I didn’t actually feel love, I wouldn’t pretend to give it; and since I feel it, I give it. Love cannot be had for the asking; it comes only as a gift from the heart of another. Be certain of your feeling before you say to anyone, ‘I love you’. Once you give your love, it must be forever. Not because you want to be near that person, but because you want perfection for that soul. To wish for perfection for the loved one, and to feel pure joy in thinking of that soul, is divine love; and that is the love of true friendship.
