Live Simply lyrics
Compassionate Living

Happiness is the child of Peace
And Peace arises from Solidity
Solidity is Freedom's progeny
And Freedom grows from Compassion
Compassion is the Mother of Joy
And Joy creates Well-Being
Well-Being begets Generosity
Generosity gives birth to
Happiness, it comes full circle

May I live simply so others may simply live
Remember each day to practice The Way -
when a hand is outstretched, I will give

Less desire, less possessions
Less possessions: less need for money
Less need for money, fewer hours at the job
Oh, and having more time
Having more time, making more peace
Making more peace, and there is energy
And with this energy, simply give
Sharing all that we have, we can
Simply live, it comes full circle

So many ways to get lost and become intoxicated
On money, on pleasure, on fame…but there’s no way to be sated
The Realisation of Understanding: this is my only career
Nourishment and Protection for One and All, my dear

I give my love to you

I'd Like To Help You Through lyrics
Reaching In, Reaching Out

This Blessed Tree (Let The Blossoms) lyrics
Freedom Of Thought

Truth Is Found In Life lyrics
Holding Views Lightly

Belief Is Not A Gun lyrics
