According to Buddha

Through meditation I will stop the storm of breath, mental restlessness, and sensory disturbances raging over the lake of my mind.

where will you be when the sky comes down?
and what would you do if the strength was found?
stay right beside me when the ground starts shaking
the only sound you’ll hear is the breath we’re taking
if there is one thing i can promise you
we’ll see the light again

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.

i was working up a conversation
but i didn’t know how to start
your heart is a work of art
i wanna be rich in memories not money
our love is our inheritance honey
we’ve come so far

According to Buddha

The relationship that exists between friends is the grandest of human loves. Friendly love is pure, because it is without compulsion. If you once know divine love, you will never part with it, for there is nothing else like it in the whole universe.

i’m out on the street walking home
a small pale blur
leaving trails like a snail
i move so slow
time can bruise
violent indigo
rush home to your arms
you soothe my weary soul
others stray but i won’t
walk away
walk away

we are not alone
and we are more alone
so hurry up and lose me
hurry up and find me
again
so i’ll pass
the lumber mills
i’ll pass the coal mines
and the parks
and the dried up oil fields
i’ll pass a thousand lonely pines
that bend their backs against the sun

Suffering is a good teacher to those who are quick and willing to learn from it. But it becomes a tyrant to those who resist and resent.

did she run away
because somebody didn’t treat her right?
did they leave her out in the cold night air
too lonely night?
a big black dog
big black dogs, they’re everywhere
looking for a home, they’re hungry and scared
all they need is food and attention
to give back love, sometimes redemption of sin
you could find them here in a big black dog

headless and all alone
shiver and say the words

first I’m gonna make it
then I’m gonna break it
till it falls apart
hating all the faking

maybe not from the sources
you have poured yours
maybe not from the directions

twist your head around
it’s all around you
all is full of love

According to Buddha

 Sometimes, the thought of “I” suddenly arises with great force…The situation is like that of a rock or a tree seen protruding up from the peak of a hill on the horizon: From afar it may be mistaken for a human being.
