According to Buddha

Those who make
good use of time
will be able to
steer themselves
in the direction they
should go


steer your way through the ruins
of the altar and the mall
steer your way through the fables
of creation and the fall
steer your way past the palaces
that rise above the rot
year by year
month by month
day by day
thought by thought

According to Buddha

May all sentient beings have equanimity, free from attachment, aggression and prejudice.
May they be happy, and have the causes for happiness.
May they be free from suffering and causes for suffering.
May they never be separated from the happiness that is free from suffering.

According to Buddha

May I become at all times, both now and forever: a protector for those without protection; a guide for those who have lost their way; a ship for those with oceans to cross; a bridge for those with rivers to cross; a sanctuary for those in danger; a lamp for those without light; a place of refuge for those who lack shelter; and a servant to all in need.

i awoke so cold and lonely
in a faraway place
the sun fell cold upon my face
the cracks in the ceiling spelt hell
turned to the wall
pulled the sheets around my head
tried to sleep, and dream my way
back to you again

another time
in the age of wonder
another world
another time
this land was green and good
until the crystal cracked!
once more, they will replenish themselves
change and then wait
the power of their source…
the crystal…

According to Buddha

You don’t need any methods to get rid of the wrong ideas you have about yourself. All you have to do is stop believing them. The best way to do this is to replace them with ideas that more accurately reflect the real state of affairs.

entre la nuit, la nuit et l’aurore.
entre les voyants, les vivants et les morts.
if this is heaven
i need something more

i thought, i found a way to enter
it’s just a reflektor (it’s just a reflektor)
i thought, i found the connector
it’s just a reflektor (it’s just a reflektor)

According to Buddha

Untrained warriors are soon killed on the battlefield; so also persons untrained in the art of preserving their inner peace are quickly riddled by the bullets of worry and restlessness in active life…The schools should educate young students in this art, and in how to develop calmness and concentration.

standing, on the edge of forever,
at the start of whatever,
shouting love at the world.
back then, we were like cavemen,
but we map the moon and the stars,
then we forgave them.
we will meet you where the lights are,
the defenders, of the faith we are.

turn the clock back to find
a film that plays
with closed eyes you see it clear as day
climbing trees to unwind
the altitude eased your mind
you’re dreaming of your escape

untie my hand and show me where to go now

According to Buddha

The secret of success and happiness is inside you. If you have found success and prosperity outside, but not inside, you are not truly successful. A millionaire who is not happy is not successful. I don’t mean that if you have a million dollars you cannot be a success. Whether you are rich or poor, if you get happiness out of life you are a real success.

According to Buddha

Introspection, or ‘sitting in the silence,’ is an unscientific way of trying to force apart the mind and senses, tied together by the life force. The contemplative mind, attempting its return to divinity, is constantly dragged back toward the senses by the life currents.

i’m just the man in the middle
of a complicated plan.
no one to show me the signs.
i’m just a creature of habit
in a complicated world.
nowhere to run to.
nowhere to hide, to hide, to hide, to hide….
