This Blessed Tree (Let The Blossoms) lyrics
Freedom Of Thought: the Third (of 14) Mindfulness Trainings

Let the buds be buds, let the leaves be leaves
Let the blossoms be the blossoms on this blessed tree
With wings in our hearts, we are truly free
Let the blossoms be the blossoms on this blessed tree

Well find a peaceful answer when we embrace tolerance
Make a loving conversation, each question is important
Like does this notion foster joy? Does it answer to the soul?
Is it the chosen path of wise ones? Is it beautiful?

Let the buds be buds, let the leaves be leaves
Let the blossoms be the blossoms on this blessed tree
Each of us growing to capacity
Let the blossoms be the blossoms on this blessed tree

Well bring kindness to our dialogue every time we meet together
An exchange based on gentleness will calm this stormy weather
Respect allows all people to choose how they decide
When we give each other this freedom, we stand side by side

Let me not take some deaf and blind turn, or walk the path of a fanatic
Difference brings fresh air let me not lock enquiry in the attic
I renounce those extremes, and so I recall the words of Dr Martin Luther King
Me too, yeah, yeah, I have a dream

End Of The Story lyrics
seeing the true suffering behind violence...

Paint It Blue lyrics
when aggression covers vulnerability...

Truth Is Found In Life lyrics
Non-Attachment To Views: the Second (of 14) Mindfulness Trainings

Leave behind the narrow streets
Where buildings cast shadows
They block the sky
Roam amongst the grass and flowers
Opening my ears
Opening my heart so wide

Everything changes, oh...let me not fall asleep
Everything changes, ohmy mind is clear when I look deep

Im ready to learn, Im ready to learn
Im ready to learn, Im ready to learn cause
TRUTH IS FOUND IN LIFE
How I yearn, how I burn, how I long to discern
TRUTH IS FOUND IN LIFE

Realise every star in the firmament
Each jewel shines
Its precious light
Knowledge is a spirited changeling
Dancing like a river
With grace and might

TRUTH IS FOUND IN LIFE
Let go the fixed, I heal my strife
Take this shapeshifter as my wife
'Cause TRUTH IS FOUND IN LIFE

Electro lyrics
sometimes love is electric...

Gratitude Train lyrics
thankfulness brings joy...so climb on board!

Hello lyrics
seeing beyond anger to the Buddha nature in everyone

Belief Is Not A Gun lyrics
Openness: the First (of 14) Mindfulness Trainings

Belief is not a loaded gun
Every colour of the rainbow leads me home

She stood by the river, she wanted to cross
But she needed a vessel to carry her aloft
So she became a carpenter and built a little boat
She hoped that though the waves were rough, she could stay afloat...

Beyond any notion of right and wrong
Beyond the monochrome
Beyond dualistic – there’s a man wearing lipstick
Every colour of the rainbow leads me home

The day he saw the butterfly, he stood, transfixed
Her beauty burned into his eyes, his heart was beating quick
His love became obsession, he could think of nothing else
He wanted this fine creature only for himself...

Can I hold these views lightly, remember to let go
Can I stay unattached to what I know?
Dismantle every idol, not be blinded by the sun
Belief is not a loaded gun
