According to Buddha

Half of life is lost in charming others. 
The other half is lost in going through anxieties caused by others. 
Leave this play. You have played enough.
the more i see, the less i know
the more i like to let it go
hey oh, whoa, whoa, whoa
deep beneath the cover of another perfect wonder
where it’s so white as snow
privately divided by a world so undecided
and there’s nowhere to go

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

The problem with certainty is that it is static; it can do little but endlessly reassert itself. Uncertainty, by contrast, is full of unknowns, possibilities, and risks.

According to Buddha

The question we need to ask ourselves is whether there is any place we can stand in ourselves where we can look at all that’s happening around us without freaking out, where we can be quiet enough to hear our predicament, and where we can begin to find ways of acting that are at least not contributing to further destabilization.

Do not alter your innate wakefulness
Fear not appearances
There is nothing more than this…

According to Buddha

When you go out into the woods, and you look at trees, you see all these different trees. And some of them are bent, and some of them are straight, and some of them are evergreens, and some of them are whatever. And you look at the tree and you allow it. You see why it is the way it is. You sort of understand that it didn’t get enough light, and so it turned that way. And you don’t get all emotional about it. You just allow it. You appreciate the tree. The minute you get near humans, you lose all that. And you are constantly saying ‘You are too this, or I’m too this.’ That judgment mind comes in. And so I practice turning people into trees. Which means appreciating them just the way they are.

and the seasons they go round and round
and the painted ponies go up and down
we’re captive on the carousel of time
we can’t return we can only look behind
from where we came
and go round and round and round
in the circle game

According to Buddha

Today I bent the truth to be kind, and I have no regret, for I am far surer of what is kind than I am of what is true.
