Taoism

Accepting life now
With all thoughts actions feelings
Be aware of them at once, no strings
Finally you may say wow

The heart of the matter

I got the call today I didn’t wanna hear,
But I knew that it would come,
An old true friend of ours was talkin’ on the phone,
She said you found someone,
And I thought of all the bad luck,
And the struggles we went through,
And how I lost me, and you lost you,
What are these voices outside love’s open door,
Make us throw off our contentment,
And beg for something more?

I’m learning to live without you now,
But I miss you sometimes,
The more I know, the less I understand,
All the things I thought I knew, I’m learning again,

I’ve been tryin’ to get down to the heart of the matter,
But my will gets weak,
And my thoughts seem to scatter,
But I think it’s about forgiveness,
Forgiveness,
Even if, even if you don’t love me anymore,

These times are so uncertain,
There’s a yearning undefined,
People filled with rage,
We all need a little tenderness,
How can love survive in such a graceless age?
The trust and self-assurance that lead to happiness,
They’re the very things we kill, I guess,
Pride and competition cannot fill these empty arms,
And the work I put between us,
You know it doesn’t keep me warm,

I’m learning to live without you now,
But I miss you, baby,
The more I know, the less I understand,
All the things I thought I figured out, I have to learn again,

I’ve been tryin’ to get down to the heart of the matter,
But everything changes,
And my friends seem to scatter,
But I think it’s about forgiveness,
Forgiveness,
Even if, even if you don’t love me anymore,

There are people in your life who’ve come and gone,
They let you down,
You know they hurt your pride,
You’d better put it all behind you, baby, ’cause life goes on,
You keep carryin’ that anger,
It’ll eat you inside, baby,

I’ve been tryin’ to get down to the heart of the matter,
But my will gets weak,
And my thoughts seem to scatter,
But I think it’s about forgiveness,
Forgiveness,
Even if, even if you don’t love me,

I’ve been tryin’ to get down to the heart of the matter,
Because the flesh will get weak,
And the ashes will scatter,
So I’m thinkin’ about forgiveness,
Forgiveness,
Even if, even if you don’t love me,
Forgiveness (hey),
Forgiveness (baby),
Forgiveness (oh),
Forgiveness (hey hey),
Forgiveness (oh),
Forgiveness,
Even if you don’t love me anymore,
Forgiveness (ooh),
Forgiveness (oh).

Don Henley

Pardon my heart

It’s a fallen situation
When all eyes are turned in
And a love isn’t flowing
The way it could have been.

You brought it all on
Oh, but it feels so wrong
You brought it all on
No, no, no,
I don’t believe this song
You brought it all on.

It’s a sad communication
With little reason to believe
When one isn’t giving
And one pretends to receive.

You brought it all on
Oh, but it feels so wrong
You brought it all on
No, no, no,
I don’t believe this song
You brought it all on.

Pardon my heart
If I showed that I cared
But I love you
more than moments
We have or have not shared.

You brought it all on
Oh, and it feels so good
You brought it all on
When love flows
the way that it should
You brought it all on.

It feels so good
It feels so good
You feel good.

Neil Young

Journey to the center of the mind

Leave your cares behind come with us and find
The pleasures of a journey to the center of the mind
Come along if you care
Come along if you dare
Take a ride to the land inside of your mind
Beyond the seas of thought beyond the realm of what
Across the streams of hopes and dreams where things are really not
Come along if you care…
But please realise you’ll probably be surprised
For it’s the land unknown to man
Where fantasy is fact

So if you can, please understand
You might not come back
Come along if you care
Come along if you dare
Take a ride to the land inside and you’ll see
How happy life could be if all of mankind
Would take the time to journey to the center of the mind
Would take the time to journey to the center of the mind
Center of the mind

Ted Nugent
