True Happiness lyrics
what's mine is yours

Give my energy, give my time
No profit from what is not rightly mine
Share my money, one for every nine
Respect the things of others, don’t step over the line
Please don’t hurt my sister or brother
We’ve got to protect our beautiful Mother
We are one, we are in each other
This is how we’ll soon discover that

To express my love, I’ll look for the way
Appropriate in what I think and say
In a difficult place or on a difficult day
I can smile at you, I can sing and pray
Break down illusions that burden my mind
Dissolve the barriers that make me blind
Commit myself to being loving and kind
This is how I’ll finally find that

The Bodhisattvas’ vows are immense
Can I sit beside you on your raft?
The Bodhisattvas’ vows are intense
And the sea we travel is vast

Do it now, before it is too late
This is the future that we can create
Now is the time, so let us not wait
Stop using being busy as a reason to hesitate
We are all in this together
Steer our boat through every weather
Solid as a mountain but light as a feather
Let’s use our strength and wisdom to find a way that’s better, ‘cause
