buddhist dharma in captivity

On Walking Your Path

Don’t ask yourself what the world needs; ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go and do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.
- Harold Whitman

If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer.
Let him step to the music he hears,however measured or far away.
-Henry David Thoreau

You were born with wings. Why prefer to crawl through life?
On Enlightenment

Why do you stay in prison when the door is so wide open?

Suffering also has its worth.
Through sorrow, pride is driven out
And pity felt for those who wander in samsara;
Evil is avoided, goodness seems delightful.
On Gurus

I am present in front of anyone who has faith in me , just as the moon casts its reflection,effortlessly, in any vessel filled with water
-Guru Padmasambhava
On Love

The minute I heard my first love story I started looking for you, not knowing how blind that was. Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere. They’re in each other all along.

“Let the lover be disgraceful, crazy, absent-minded. Someone sober will worry about events going badly. Let the lover be.”
On God

God is the mirror of silence in which all creation is reflected.
-Paramahansa Yogananda
On Living

Move outside the tangle of fear-thinking. Live in silence.

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field. I will meet you there.
On Death

I died a mineral, and became a plant. I died a plant and rose an animal. I died an animal and I was man. Why should I fear? When was I less by dying?

What if God was subject to man’s consciousness

Being everything and nothing.

The greatest of illusions ever seen

One that is the conforms to the structures of man

Merely because he is man.

And he is no different than us

We all live in a constant Battle with ourselves

I can tell you that its no different

Being contained within him

Being contained with out him

Being a part of his soul

We are the one place that he has lost control

Many times has he tried

Many a man has he sent

And now we have reached the place

Where it’s, get in or get out, get up and get down

the wonder is how we haven’t fallen down,

fallen from the middle of the earth to never make a sound

He has tried every time

The last was not so long ago

There is nothing left to hide

Just open up your soul

It’s the only way, mankind can survive

To truly love is to provide,

To truly know is divine

We have to swallow the great divide

You see when the judgment is passed

This whole thing of the past

Will never cease to exist x2

unless we learn to live in bliss

cut away the darkness,

to embrace the light,

follow the laws of the books of the son’s of men

They are all the same in the end

Really Doesn’t matter who what where or when

Just believe in your part in his existence

And take the lead without resistance

But we Cant make the world

Believe unless we show them

that there is more than all this materialism

that we have created the great schizm

in our minds we are only one

is his mind we are the same one

its all the same

we are him he is us

we must conform to the rest or die in the dust

from whence we came

the harder i try an escape the memories of the good things
the longer they seem to hold onto my mind
the love that we had was so good and now pain is all it brings
the shorter the tidal wave of the sublime
the faster you go the harder you sing
the more of this life you treat as a fling
to transcend the boundaries of being alive
you don't hold a candle to how i survive
yet you pervade my thoughts
yet you made me feel alive
was it all for naught
or did i take the wheel and drive
off the cliff of regret
and into a hope for the best
once again i chuck and pray
will it ever go away
find the thing that kills the pain
hold on till my hands bleed in disdain
hope is all i have left in this life
hope that tomorrow will be better than today
hope for anything to make these dreams go away
