According to Buddha

You have to go through the darkness to truly know the light. This may sound like a cliche, but it’s true nonetheless. Often the greatest doubts occur just before a breakthrough.

le soir ma mère nous chantait quand j’étais enfant
l’histoire d’un bateau perdu et d’un oiseau blanc
un jour le bateau s’en va droit vers l’océan
et seule, le cœur plein d’amour, une fille attend

According to Buddha

Compassion does not see the faults of others.  It does not see the weaknesses of people.  It makes no distinction between good and bad people.  Compassion cannot draw a line between two countries, two faiths or two religions.  Compassion has no ego; thus there is no fear, lust or passion.  Compassion simply forgives and forgets. Compassion is like a passage.  Everything passes through it.  Nothing can stay there.  Compassion is love expressed in all its fullness.

i could never drown

they wanna get my
they wanna get my
gold on the ceiling

just a matter of time
before you steal it
it’s alright
ain’t no guard in my house

According to Buddha

The roots of war are in the way we live our daily lives — the way we develop our industries, build up our society, and consume goods.

down the ditches a thousand years
the waters grew ira’s peoples’ crops
’til the white man stole their water rights
and the sparkling water stopped
now, ira’s folks were hungry
and their land grew crops of weeds
when war came, ira volunteered
and forgot the white man’s greed

According to Buddha

Strive ceaselessly; never be impatient. Once the finality is achieved, incarnation of troubles will be over in a second, just as when light is admitted within a room that has been locked for decades, the darkness vanishes instantly.

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.

we could shake this world
if you would only show us how

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

i dare you to close your eyes
and see all the colours in disguise
running into the night
the earth is shaking and i see a light
the light is blinding my eyes
as the soft walls eat us alive
