According to Buddha

Ultimately you live simultaneously in all of the planes of consciousness all the time, so that in a way, it’s like a vertical cut up – you look at somebody, they’re there; they’re not there. 

ten fingers, ten laws that i live by.
(ten fingers, ten laws that i live by,
like all signs they keep me on track)

if it ever sees you wearing a frown

where did the ravens come from? 
a nest, deep in the earth made of sticks and bones, 
and as the ravens cracked out of their shells and clawed their way to the surface their feathers were singed and burned to a shiny black.

Sweet Justice (Loveswept) number

According to Buddha

But you know, you really don’t have to worry about whether everybody else is doing it or not. You just begin to get your own house in order. Recognizing your complete interrelatedness with all of it and with your own spiritual source changes the meaning of each act, and therefore both the reason and the way it’s done.

someday we’ll find it
the rainbow connection…
the lovers, the dreamers and me

According to Buddha

I don’t really believe anything I say. Because the nature of my work concerns the spaces between the words, rather than the words themselves.

 

jump in, let’s go
lay back, enjoy the show
everybody gets high, everybody gets low,
these are the days when anything goes

everyday is a winding road
i get a little bit closer
everyday is a faded sign
i get a little bit closer to feeling fine

According to Buddha

Our sorrows and wounds are healed only when we touch them with compassion.

so if they call you
embrace them
if they hold you
erase them

’cause it might’ve been something, who’s to say?
does it help to get lost in yesterday?

they know from the past
life simply doesn’t last
so they live for today
for tomorrow they may
not be able to walk in the skies

sun slips into horizon
moon reaches for the stars
