According to Buddha

Emptiness is a mode of perception, a way of looking at experience. It adds nothing to and takes nothing away from the raw data of physical and mental events. You look at events in the mind and the senses with no thought of whether there’s anything lying behind them.

ain’t no use in calling up your friends
ain’t no use in hiding in your bed
and ain’t no use in standing on your head
cause no new sights can fill your loneliness

According to Buddha

On a trail atop White-Crane’s green cliffs,
My recluse friend’s home in solitude,
Step and courtyard empty; water and rock,
Forest and creek free of axe and fish trap.
Months and years perfect old pines here.
Wind and frost keep bitter bamboo sparse.
Gazing deep, ancestral ways my own again…

 give it time and we wonder why do what we can laugh and we cry
and we sleep in your dust because we’ve seen this all before
culture fades with tears and grace leaving us stunned hollow with shame
we have seen this all seen this all before
many tribes of a modern kind doing brand new work same spirit by side
joining hearts and hands and ancestral twine ancestral twine
slowly it fades
slowly we fade

spirit bird she creaks and groans she knows she has, seen this all before she has, seen this all before

According to Buddha

According to the logic of that old, deluded world, freedom means being at liberty to come and go as we please. Such a definition of freedom is often very useful to an oppressive regime. That is because freedom, if so defined, becomes something that can then be taken away. Tsunesaburo Makiguchi said no when offered his freedom because the offer itself was deluded. His captors, who thought they were free but in reality were the “thought prisoners” of an oppressive government and the victims of a degraded religious culture that had long since capitulated on the matter of basic human rights, therefore had nothing to offer him. He was free already.

are you a dancer in this world?
do you walk the sundance of life?
but all you wanted was to be…free
what i wanted was to be…me

You must leave righteous ways behind, not to speak of unrighteous ways

another simple precept from Buddha is ‘do not use intoxicants‘.

pondering the subject at hand, Gregory Bateson said that everything is intoxicating, that it’s just a matter of the level….

open my luggage, again

i find a gift: the gift i give myself when i drop myths about who i am

and be honest about what i am doing with each moment
