แก่นสารของชีวิต Key to Life Buddhism – Album

A Devotional modern Buddhist Buddhism Soundscape focusing on Siddhartha Gautama’s controversial rejection of classical divinity in favour of a self-salvation. The album essentially centres on the theme that there is no authority but yourself.

The essence of the Album is about finding your own feet, direction and road in life. A road where only we ourselves bear responsibility for our actions and choices and the absolute rejection of the concepts of pre-defined destiny, creationist dictatorship or law and government directive.

By looking at the collecting thoughts of the spiritually evolving Siddhartha Gautama and the journey that brought him to achieving the status of Buddha, we can open and see a path to enlightenment, without outside socio- religious dictates.

LYRICS / STORYBOARD :

WEB 01  Heavenly Pink Cloud Dreams

It is how we use our lives, our time that counts, not how long we have or even what time is We make choices, we chose a life of significance or insignificance. We can choose to make a life, Biologically so to speak, to make a child or to dedicate to a cause , to leave a legacy for others to follow.

When all is accounted for, do people remember Buddha for his scriptures and teachings or his children ? The assumption that immortality can be achieved through procreation and the bloodline is not necessarily true as infamy can also be immortality.

All life sickens, ages and dies, so what sets one life apart form others ? That lies in how we use our time ? As a guide we can reach out to the Holy Texts, for a story told father to son may endure as long as a bloodline, but a scripture message carved in stone will most stand for longer.

To write a life of Meaning, we have to have purpose and meaningful intent and that intent lies in balance. A yin and a yan symbiotically entwined one around the other.

The Key of life, The meaning of life, the essence of life, the purpose of life, the essence of life, the meaning of life, we eliminate all passions (and dependency on Commerce, Relationships, Divinity and the State) and through this we will become self-enlightened, reaching nirvana.
A life dedicated from beginning until the very end. Waking from dream and lie, our purpose to eliminate all passions from our lives until the very end, we shall achieve ourselves a state of enlightenment, nirvana, This is the very quintessence of life, the purpose of life.
(The Key of Life)

06 Singing Buddha

Whether or not there were /are Divine beings doing what we presume divinity does, matters not at all to the Buddhist.Siddhartha Gautama quite uniquely from all other spiritual leaders stipulates that there is no master, or, authority but ourselves when it comes to matters of salvation.

So by following this ethic Siddhartha Gautama skilfully side stepped the whole creationist issue by laying a path that spiritual enlightenment lied squarely under a principle of self-salvation.

Alone and free of Classical Divinity, the possibilities are enormous, we cannot save ourselves if we are afraid of Death and retribution, in that realm Divinity rules.

Siddhartha Gautama creates the desire to accept Sickness, Age and Death as a passing to enlightenment.

He was, the first real threat to Organised Creationism the world had ever seen and as such, remains today the established foundation of Alternative Culture.

The impact of this culture socially and on the self being three fold –

– That Consciousness to Realization of the self leads to empowerment
– The letting go , or , Obliteration of all earthly desire, need, concern removes all agents of social control wherever they have been applied
– This Obliteration opens a path to true Enlightenment and personal
spiritual growth

出卖 Sold Operetta – Single

S – Social
O – Obscenity
L – Love
D – Dependency

The underlying thing that defines the time we live in is That everything has been “SOLD” not just industry, jobs, futures and the ground we stand on,. More fundamental: The cultural commercial obsession with Profiteering also filters down to the very fabric of Society and our expectations at all levels.,. essentially right down to our very Heart Body and Soul..

Have you Ever reflected on the “Romantic Dream” everything from Disney to Bollywood, Mills and Boon and the eternal digest of pulp romance…? Do you ever feel like you have been cheated on the dream ? SOLD is the marker for our Time ,. Everything has been sold , including you. Follow our parody of characters, the Overseas Chinese, The East End Thugs, club and Pub hiphuggers, The sweet ebony opportunists, the reflective, solitary standing, the romantics and the Domestically Mistreated and through those threads ask yourself if Everything about YOU and Your personal relationships has been SOLD ?

SOLD (Operetta):
You sold me your love as a divinity,
But it was only your social obscenity
Love, Obscenity, Divinity, Obscenity
You sold me your love as a divinity,
But it was only your social obscenity
You sold me
Love, Obscenity, Divinity, Obscenity,
You sold me your love as a divinity,
But it was only your social obscenity,
Love, Obscenity, Divinity, Upsetting me,
You Sold me your Love, Your Love, Your Love, Your Love, Your Love, Your Love, Your Love

竹片 Bamboo Sticks – Single

Bamboo Sticks:
Like bamboo sticks we lie, (still lithe), flawless against the moonlight Like bamboo sticks we lie, Skin cold and hard in the night, I turn, I watch you by night, The flutter of your dreaming eyes (under your eyelids..)
Like bamboo sticks we lie, (still lithe), flawless against the moonlight, Like bamboo sticks we lie, Skin cold and hard in the night

Im motile , Bah ham MM Boo hoo, Flaw less , dey new oode Brit tal bah ham MM Boo hoo, Rea ch ow T too you
Im motile , Bah ham MM Boo hoo, Uh NN see NN by you

像竹片一样我们静静地依偎在一起
月光漫过的肌肤
像大理石一样冰冷坚硬

像竹片一样,我们静静地依偎在一起
你的每一次呼吸都透着寒意

像竹片一样,我们飞快地成长
每一步每一次呼吸每一个吻都让我们更紧密
竹子的根盘结纠缠日益强大
我们对彼此过度依赖
爱情让我们迷失了自己

Like bamboo, Like bamboo, Like bamboo , Like bamboo, Like bamboo sticks we lie, (still lithe, still “lies”),
flawless against the moonlight, Like bamboo sticks we lie
cold and hard in the night, I turn, I watch you by night, The flutter of your dreaming eyes (under your eyelids.. under your lies), Like bamboo sticks we lie, (still lithe), flawless against the moonlight, Like bamboo sticks we lie, Skin cold and hard in the night

我转身 看着夜色中的你
睡梦中的你眼珠在转动
你的嘴唇在沉沉的呼吸中被湿气氤氲
就像被削断的竹片 你已经变得脆弱而冷漠

你在睡梦中转身 在某个呼吸的瞬间你厌恶地背过身去
我想靠近你 触碰你 但已不再可能
我无法动弹 身体像水泥一样僵硬
所有的星辰已经陨落 你在曙光中慢慢苏醒
但你依然背对着我 像顽固的竹片一样对我视而不见
你忘记了我们的梦想 你起身兀自离开
我们就像竹片一样, 竹片
我们就像竹片一样, 竹片
竹片,
竹片,
竹片,
竹片,
竹片

Sweet Ebony Perfection:

Perfection, A natural combination, Sweet Ebony , Sweet Ebony ,umm hummmm, Perfection, A natural combination

Sweet Ebony , Sweet Ebony ,umm hummmm, Um that sweet smile, That’s the way they like it , Like I said um ummmm you know it ! ah ah ah yeah !, That’s the way they like it ! Wicked Wicked Wicked Wicked Wicked…. ,Sweet Ebony Perfection, Um. Hummmmm, Sweet Ebony perfection, Sweet Ebony Perfection, Eyes Flick from the table to me, to the table back again, Eyes them reading me, looking to find the lines on my face that will tell she my story.

Fire light form the candle on the table dance on her cheek, Make the skin there look like oil, Shifting colours, black to gold to purple and back to black, Then all them colours there blend then change again and separate as the candle light it changing constant

Make me think this girl surreal, like her skin such sweet ebony perfection, Can step off her bone and dance its intoxicating dance alone, But I know that skin it lie me with a trick of the light

I sweet smile back and the eyes rise again to meet mine, Them eyes so white so bright there a contrast with the deep night of the girls fine face

Sweet Ebony Perfection, Um hummmmmm, Sweet Ebony Perfection, Sweet Ebony Perfection

Like bright stars in the night, my eyes them home in on them, And there all the layers come through
Sweet Ebony Perfection, Um hummmmmm, Sweet Ebony Perfection, Sweet Ebony Perfection

The girl she got deep night, she got bright light, A marvelling combination to wynde them together there in this sweet ebony perfection

Sweet Ebony Perfection, Um hummmmmm, Sweet Ebony Perfection, Sweet Ebony Perfection, so fine, Sweet Ebony Perfection, Um hummmmmm, Sweet Ebony Perfection, Sweet Ebony Perfection
