According to Buddha

There are times of flourishing and abundance, when life feels in full bloom, energized and expanding. And there are times of fruition, when things come to an end. They have reached their climax and must be harvested before they begin to fade.

there is a lonesome old buffalo 
roaming on the plains all alone 
he does not have anybody 
he doesn’t even have a home 
he stands quiet in the morning star 
his shaggy head is hanging low 
oh but his dreams fly high as the sky alright

According to Buddha

Sometimes we feel that one individual’s action is very insignificant. Then we think, of course, that effects should come from channeling or from a unifying movement. But the movement of the society, community or group of people means joining individuals. Society means a collection of individuals, so that initiative must come from individuals. Unless each individual develops a sense of responsibility, the whole community cannot move. So therefore, it is very essential that we should not feel that individual effort is meaningless – you should not feel that way. We should make an effort.

According to Buddha

If you have never taken 
The principles of the teachings to heart, 
You have no basis 
For awakening to the hidden path. 

so, i’m at your house this morning
just a little after nine
’cause, it was in bobcaygeon
where i saw the constellations reveal themselves
one star at a time

According to Buddha

Be as careful as you can. Our minds are funny. Sometimes we are skeptical of things that are really worthwhile and completely accepting of things that we should avoid. Try to avoid extremes and follow the middle way, checking with wisdom wherever you go.

we’re on a road to nowhere
come on inside
takin’ that ride to nowhere
we’ll take that ride

According to Buddha

The problem with certainty is that it is static; it can do little but endlessly reassert itself. Uncertainty, by contrast, is full of unknowns, possibilities, and risks.

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.

According to Buddha

To be ecstatic is not difficult. It is thinking that it is difficult that holds you apart from it. Never think of divine joy as distant from you, and it will be with you always.

have you ever had a fever,
from a bitter-sweet refrain,
have you ever kissed the sunshine,
walked between the rain.
well, just climb up on my music,
and my songs will set you free,
well, just climb up on my music,
and from there jump off with me.

one of these days,
i’m gonna sit down and write a long letter
to all the good friends i’ve known
one of these days, one of these days, one of these days,
and it won’t be long, it won’t be long.

According to Buddha

Awake. Arise from dreams of littleness to the realization of the vastness within you.  Come. I will show you that you are a spark of the Eternal Fire that is drinking with countless mouths the Bliss-nectar honeycombed in the heart of all created things.

thousand faces staring at me
lonely shadows following me
lonely ghosts come a-calling
lonely voices talking to me
now give me that fire
now give me that fire
now give me that fire
burn, burn, burn
