According to Buddha

I will drink vitality from the fountains of sunshine. I will drink peace from the silver fountain of mooned nights. I will drink thy power in the mighty cup of the wind. I will drink thy consciousness in all the little cups of my thoughts. I will drink thy joy in my joy. I will drink thy bliss in my blissful thoughts.

your breath is sweet and weak
your eyes are like
two jewels in the sky
your back is straight
your hair is smooth on the pillow where you lie
but i don’t sense affection
no gratitude
no love
your loyalty is not to me but
to the stars above

According to Buddha

This life is strange. Everything is subject to change. That is why one should not anchor his/her happiness on this life. Our time will pass on; what you are seeing now will be gone one day. Change is good if you don’t let it hurt you. When it does hurt, the rebellion you feel is meant to show you that you should not have any desires.

According to Buddha

The basic law of right human behaviour is self-reform…Whenever any trouble occurs with our friends or dear ones, we should inwardly lay the blame on ourselves for getting into an unpleasant situation and then try to get out of it as fast and as graciously as we can.

my lines, your lines
don’t cross them lines
what you like, what i like
why can’t we both be right?
attacking, defending
until there’s nothing left worth winning
your pride and my pride
don’t waste my time

According to Buddha

Touching the present moment, we realize that the present is made of the past and is creating the future.

the past, past, well now let me tell you about the past
the past is filled with silent joys and broken toys,
laughing girls and teasing boys,
was i ever in love? i called it love – i mean, it felt like love,
there were moments when, well, there were moments when

According to Buddha

Turning a corner, I ran into an old acquaintance—one of those long-winded fellows whose conversational powers ignore time and embrace eternity.

there is fiction in the space between
the lines on your page of memories
write it down but it doesn’t mean
you’re not just telling stories
there is fiction in the space between
you and me
you and everybody
give us all what we need
give us one more sad sordid story
but in the fiction of the space between
sometimes a lie is the best thing

According to Buddha

It is not a pumping-in from the outside that gives wisdom; it is the power and extent of your inner receptivity that determines how much you can attain of true knowledge, and how rapidly. The man who has the power of receptivity quickly grasps everything. People with no receptivity may be exposed to the same experiences or information, yet not really see nor fully comprehend what is there. An intelligent man lives far ahead of the idiot. Your experiences bring wisdom according to the measure of the cup of your receptivity.

According to Buddha

The sun shines equally on diamond and charcoal, but the former has developed qualities that enable it to reflect the sunlight brilliantly, while the latter is unable to reflect the sunlight. Emulate the diamond in your dealings with people.

the wolf’s teeth are red

According to Buddha

The heart-quieted yogi in superconsciousness becomes able to see visions and great lights; to hear astral sounds; and to become identified with a vast dimly lighted space—alive with glimpses of beauties hitherto unknown.

beneath this snowy mantle cold and clean
the unborn grass lies waiting
for its coat to turn to green
the snowbird sings the song he always sings
and speaks to me of flowers
that will bloom again in spring

According to Buddha

Love gives without expecting anything in return. I never think of anyone in terms of what he can do for me. And I never profess love to someone because he has done something for me. If I didn’t actually feel love, I wouldn’t pretend to give it; and since I feel it, I give it. Love cannot be had for the asking; it comes only as a gift from the heart of another. Be certain of your feeling before you say to anyone, ‘I love you’. Once you give your love, it must be forever. Not because you want to be near that person, but because you want perfection for that soul. To wish for perfection for the loved one, and to feel pure joy in thinking of that soul, is divine love; and that is the love of true friendship.
