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.

recognize the impermanence
of all outer pleasure.

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….

According to Buddha

We need to change our way of thinking and seeing things. We need to realize that the Earth is not just our environment. The Earth is not something outside of us. Breathing with mindfulness and contemplating your body, you realize that you are the Earth. You realize that your consciousness is also the consciousness of the Earth. Look around you–what you see is not your environment, it is you.

i was stuck in the ground
trying to cover my eyes
trying to move all this light
i spent all night
trying to remember your face
like trying to get blood from a stone
but there was nothing to save
and no one to lie to

According to Buddha

There is another world, the astral, hidden behind this universe. Its inhabitants are garbed in an astral form made of light. Lacking a physical body, they are “ghosts,” invisible to us . . .

we are ghosts amongst these hills
from the trees of velvet green
to the ground beneath our feet
we are ghosts
we are ghosts amongst these hills
pressing out along the shore
