According to Buddha

There are two kinds of happiness, mental happiness, and outer happiness. Outer happiness comes through meeting with an external object and is transitory. Mental happiness comes about through meditation and positive thought, it is stable and does not cause suffering. One cannot be happy if one does not have mental happiness, no matter how abundant the   external sources of outer happiness are, but if one is truly happy in one’s mind, then one is unaffected by outer problems.

you gotta swing your hips now
come on baby
a jump up oh, jump back
oh well, i think you’ve got the knack, oh-oh
 
(come on baby, do the locomotion)

According to Buddha

What is the mind? It is a phenonmenon that is not body, not substantial, has no form, no shape, no colour, but, like a mirror, can clearly reflect objects.

leave this space and face the open wide
wonder endlessly, i don’t look down
making me forgive making me brave
looking for a chance to change my wings
lately i’ve been wondering why i stay
feeling like
 
space invades my mind

According to Buddha

Everyone wants happiness,
but the true way to reach perfect happiness is to bring happiness to others.

will you fly with me

will you fall with me
like a feather in the light?
will you fly with me

According to Buddha

As human beings, we are all the same. So there is no need to build some kind of artificial barrier between us. At least my own experience is that if you have this kind of attitude, there is no barrier. 

it ain’t no joke, i’d like to buy the world a toke
and teach the world to sing in perfect harmony
and teach the world to snuff the fires and the liars
hey, i know it’s just a song but it’s spice for the recipe

According to Buddha

Sorrow prepares you for joy. It violently sweeps everything out of your house, so that new joy can find space to enter. It shakes the yellow leaves from the bough of your heart, so that fresh, green leaves can grow in their place. It pulls up the rotten roots, so that new roots hidden beneath have room to grow. Whatever sorrow shakes from your heart, far better things will take their place

all inside our amsterdam she hides
watery-eyed
that howling wind, she’s waving hi
her other hand’s in mine

According to Buddha

Then the usual everyday level of experience becomes altered; there is more ‘magic’ in the air. One can become ‘inspired’ or be on a ‘crusade’.

According to Buddha

…Each one of us lacks one thing or another. I am not exactly sure what we lack, but I can feel we lack something. In the West, even if at the moment you are going through a crisis, you actually have everything, or at least you think you do; all kinds of material goods are there, and are no doubt distributed better than they were in the past. But it seems to me that you are living in a constant state of tension, in an atmosphere of never-ending competitiveness and fear. And those who are brought up in such an atmosphere will find themselves lacking all their lives: they will not know that wonderful quality of depth and intimacy that is the richness of life. They will stay on the surface of the troubled sea, without ever knowing the calm that lies beneath. 

may the long time sun
shine upon you
all love surround you
and the pure light
within you
guide your way on
guide your way on

According to Buddha

The fundamental delusion of humanity is to suppose that I am here and you are out there.

a new world hangs
outside the window
beautiful and strange
it must mean i’ve fallen away
i must be

According to Buddha

If, as in a dream, you see a light brighter than the sun, your remaining attachments will suddenly come to an end and the nature of reality will be revealed. Such an occurrence serves as the basis for enlightenment. But this is something only you know. 
You can’t explain it to others.

sunshine’s better on the other side
sunshine’s better when you make it shine
the sun shines better
sunshine’s better on the other side
the other side of the hill
the sun shines better.

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
