According to Buddha

Do not accept any of my words on faith,
Believing them just because I said them.
Be like an analyst buying gold, who cuts, burns, 
And critically examines her product for authenticity.
Only accept what passes the test 
By proving useful and beneficial in your life
.

you say your heart is like a library book
to love is to trust he’ll bring it back
if i go and take it home for good
would you be okay with that?
would you be okay with that?

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

Look at appearance-emptiness forms,
Listen to sound and emptiness sounds,
Rest in mind's nature, clarity-emptiness,
And when your thoughts free themselves,
Laugh, oh laugh "Ha ha! Hee hee!
never saw the sun shining so bright
never saw things going so right
noticing the days hurrying by
when you’re in love, my how they fly
blue days
all of them gone
nothing but blue skies
from now on

According to Buddha

Self-confidence is not a feeling of superiority, but of independence.
We have to understand the middle path: that a human has a positive and a negative side. 
We have a false, ignorant side, but we also have a beautiful potential.
follow, follow the sun
and which way the wind blows
when this day is done
breath, breath in the air
set your intentions
dream with care
tomorrow is a new day for everyone

According to Buddha

“And what, bhikkhus, are the seven principles of non-decline? 

 As long as the bhikkhus develop the perception of impermanence, only growth is to be expected for them, not decline. 
As long as they develop the perception of non-self . . . 
. . . . the perception of attractiveness . . .
. . . . the perception of danger . . .
. . . . the perception of abandoning . . .
. . . . the perception of dispassion . . .
. . . . the perception of cessation . . .
Only growth is to be expected for them, not decline.”
eyes without a face
(les yeux sans visage) eyes without a face
(les yeux sans visage) eyes without a face
got no human grace
your eyes without a face

According to Buddha

I would say that the thrust of my life has been initially about getting free, and then realizing that my freedom is not independent of everybody else. Then I am arriving at that circle where one works on oneself as a gift to other people so that one doesn’t create more suffering.

well we’re movin’ on up,
to the east side.
to a deluxe apartment in the sky.
movin’ on up
to the east side.
we finally got a piece of the pie.

According to Buddha

Our rational minds can never understand what has happened, but our hearts, if we can keep them open to spirit, will find their own intuitive way.

now take me to other side

and gray clouds, or white walls, or blue skies
we gon’ fly, feel alright
 
it’s a good day (to be)
a good day for me (a good day for me)
