i talk to the trees
but they don’t listen to me
i talk to the stars
but they never hear me

the breeze hasn’t time
to stop and hear what i say
i talk to them all in vain

love is but a song to sing
fear’s the way we die
you can make the mountains ring
or make the angels cry
though the bird is on the wing
and you may not know why
come on people now
smile on your brother
everybody get together
try to love one another
right now

According to Buddha

The pain of the world will sear and break our hearts because we can no longer keep them closed. We’ve seen too much now. To some degree or other, we have surrendered into service and are willing to pay the price of compassion. But with it comes the joy of a single, caring act. With it comes the honor of participating in a generous process in which one rises each day and does what one can. With it comes the simple, singular grace of being an instrument of love, in whatever form, to whatever end.

my holdings and my land to again
if we were just to take my name
in the springtime of the year
oh how happy you could be here
in the springtime of the year
the sun will burn up all the snows

According to Buddha

Don’t prolong the past,
Don’t invite the future,
Don’t alter your innate wakefulness,
Don’t fear appearances,
There’s nothing more than that!

i looked a coyote right in the face
on the road to baljennie, near my old home town
he went running thru the whisker wheat
chasing some prize down
and a hawk was playing with him
coyote was jumping straight up and making passes
he had those same eyes just like yours

images of broken light which dance before me like a million eyes,
they call me on and on across the universe.
thoughts meander like a restless wind inside a letter box,
they tumble blindly as they make their way across the universe.

According to Buddha

Practically speaking, if all of your enemies were well, happy, and peaceful, they would not be your enemies. If they were free from problems, pain, suffering, affliction, neurosis, psychosis, paranoia, fear, tension, anxiety, etc., they would not be your enemies. The practical approach toward your enemies is to help them overcome their problems, so you can live in peace and happiness.

well we know where we’re going
but we don’t know where we’ve been
and we know what we’re knowing
but we can’t say what we’ve seen
and we’re not little children
and we know what we want
and the future is certain
give us time to work it out

we’re on a road to nowhere

but miles to go is miles away
hello sunshine, won’t you stay?

According to Buddha

May I become at all times, both now and forever: a protector for those without protection; a guide for those who have lost their way; a ship for those with oceans to cross; a bridge for those with rivers to cross; a sanctuary for those in danger; a lamp for those without light; a place of refuge for those who lack shelter; and a servant to all in need.

i awoke so cold and lonely
in a faraway place
the sun fell cold upon my face
the cracks in the ceiling spelt hell
turned to the wall
pulled the sheets around my head
tried to sleep, and dream my way
back to you again

According to Buddha

If you want to be loved, start loving others who need your love. If you want others to sympathize with you, start showing sympathy to those around you. If you want to be respected, you must learn to be respectful to everyone, both young and old. Whatever you want others to be, first be that yourself; then you will find others responding in like manner to you.

i listen to my words but
they fall far below
i let my music take me where
my heart wants to go
i swam upon the devil’s lake
but never, never never never
i’ll never make the same mistake
no, never, never, never
