According to Buddha

Soon we will be strangers. No, we can never be that. Hurting someone is an act of reluctant intimacy. We will be dangerous acquaintances with a history.

there’s a drumming noise inside my head
that starts when you’re around
i swear that you could hear it
it makes such an all mighty sound

According to Buddha

I reached in experience the nirvana which is unborn, unrivalled, secure from attachment, undecaying and unstained. This condition is indeed reached by me which is deep, difficult to see, difficult to understand, tranquil, excellent, beyond the reach of mere logic, subtle, and to be realized only by the wise.

there’s rain in Tokyo

somewhere we lost that song.

some things get lost and soaked.

and some things might just get old.

according to Buddha

To find a buddha, all you have to do is see your nature. Your nature is the buddha. And the buddha is the person who’s free, free of plans, free of cares. If you don’t see your nature and run around all day looking somewhere else, you’ll never find a buddha.

according to Buddha

People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don’t even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child—our own two eyes. All is a miracle.

teach the gifted children
the way of men and animals
teach them about cities
the history of the mysteries
their vice and their virtues
about branches that blow in the wind

what will become of the truth
when we keep it in
things we don’t remember
when they ask us “when”

maybe this is my heart and
maybe it is yours
burns away the eyes
peering in our doors

There’s no need for us to be held back by the past or how things have been so far. The important thing is what seeds we are sowing now for the future.
