The Five Practices for Nurturing Happiness
The Second Practice: Inviting Positive Seeds

We each have many kinds of “seeds” lying deep in our consciousness. Those we water are the ones that sprout, come up into our awareness, and manifest outwardly. In our own consciousness there is hell, and there is also paradise. We are capable of being compassionate, understanding, and joyful. If we pay attention only to the negative things in us, especially the suffering of past hurts, we are wallowing in our sorrows and not getting any positive nourishment. We can practice appropriate attention, watering the wholesome qualities in us by touching the positive things that are always available inside and around us. That is good food for our mind.

lyrics

[Verse I]
Stars aligning, think my chakras in Zion/
4th dimension matrix, mixing poetry in space and time /
Continuum, shifting Buddha in spatial knowledge
of Five Percenters / But I’m roaming like a Ronin who’s /
Bringing ancient mathematics back to modern man /
Reveal my hand while painting zen, through the pad and pen /
Ascend your status through the magic of my ancestors /
Finding voodoo in the vision of my Avatar /
State /
Kicking science through lit/er/ate–
–Sure, they want to dance, but these lyrics be my /
Ther/a/py /
Finger through a sea of vinyl for /
Clar/i/ty /
I’m slaying Cleric beasts as I / Reach /
Palms stretched below the heaven’s skyline / Preach /
Buddha breath whisper hymns under starlight /
Chakra’s align, in the basement of, Zion /
As an Architect, watching Morpheus /

[Pre-Chorus]
Bloom / Bloom /
Bloom / Bloom

[Chorus]
I take flight / travel light /
Through the stars / and twilight /
I’m in flight / to my dreams /
Viewing seas / of star beams

[Verse II]
God body affiliate, sky dweller who be, pedaling intellect/
Sun scripture, writing toward the bigger picture /
Hieroglyphics glitch reality like the matrix / my /
Magic be like stardust, magic me like star light /
Illuminating my sight, Illuminate my path /
Like solar flares from Krillin's dome /
Tienshinhan third eye be open like the /
Eye of Ra, eye caught in the storm /
I Byakugan / analyze every flaw /
I the only legend, wielding an I-Ron fist /
Obliterate your crew like the eye, of Anima /
Sending adversaries to the far plane, I claim /
Wisdom in the fingertips of / Confucius /
Wielding Infinity Gems / Riding on shooting stars /
Shattering rhetorics, keeping it heaven sent /
While I’m steady, waiting to /

[Pre-Chorus]
Bloom / Bloom /
Bloom / Bloom

[Chorus / Outro]
I take flight / travel light /
Through the stars / and twilight /
I’m in flight / to my dreams /
Viewing seas / of star beams

[Transition into “& Earth”, Produced by Manny Beats]

[Intro]
I take flight / travel light /
Through the stars / and twilight /
I’m in flight / to my dreams /
To my dreams / to my dreams /

[Verse III] I’m just, anti you /
Anti all the smoke and mirrors /
Anti social in the cypher coughing poems made of /
Anti Hero, Hero Hunting Mercenary of the Astral Clock tower /
Tongue shift atmosphere, there's a Kingdom in my spear /
Kingdom come on inner palm, releasing all the fear /
Relasping in the star's calm, crystal clear /
The pressure form a diamond as I meditate in /
Rhinestone / Eye of Storm / Me and Brad /
Spent the last year, chopping records with my spirit on layaway /
Laying increments of my common sense on the breath /
Of my dissonance, sharpening my pen, as I pen /
Against anxiety and the doubts of men / I'm /
Falling out of orbit, pushing planets from afar /
Moonlit canvas, grasping toward the, stars /
Gazing toward the distance, watching peers as they bloom /
Disassociate, like Dr. Manhattan, as I /

[Chorus] Dream,
I gotta dream / where are my dreams /
I gotta dream / believe my dreams /
Moving on dreams / I gotta / Dream
I gotta dream / I gotta /
Dream motherfucker, dream motherfucker / Dream /
(Dream motherfucker, dream motherfucker / Dream)
Dream motherfucker, dream motherfucker / Dream /
(Dream motherfucker, dream motherfucker / Dream)

[Verse IV]
Pallbearer who bares the mic like hearses /
Verses be like voodoo, a conduit to my magic /
Multitude of interludes, see'em like Agamotto /
Modeled after mottos, my mantra, be the Lotus /
Reflecting through the pain, when penning my first refrain /
Searching for the wisdom, the prism refract the frame /
Of a study in scarlet, a journey through stardust /
Melodies of memories, drowned in Hennessey /
Peering pass my obstacles, blast'em down with these optics /
Prisoner of politics, liberating our souls /
Panther party alchemist, activist kicking knowledge and common sense /
In the union of inner circles, I circle Ouroboros Dragons /
Breathing up fire while in the spire /
Conspire for Exodus, blooming / Out of the darkness /
Lotus of the mud, who found the sun /
Running the jewels, I drop gems /
And bend the soul till I can /

[Chorus] Dream,
I gotta dream / where are my dreams
I gotta dream / believe my dreams /
Moving on dreams / I gotta dream /
(Bend the soul untill I reach, gold, like)
Dream motherfucker, dream motherfucker / Dream /
(Dream motherfucker, dream motherfucker / Dream)
Dream motherfucker, dream motherfucker / Dream /
(Dream motherfucker, dream motherfucker / Dream)

[Verse V]
These bars are blessed from Allah /
Arm, leg, leg, arm / Head, hunting of ya /
Vagabond, putting the pieces together like, Exodia /
Exodus heaven sent, Kratos Olympus bound /
Been plotting on, your legacies /
Beheading your kings and slaying your Queens /
So whose that Hotep, fucking up, my frequency /
Waxing them fake poetics to heighten up your ascetics /
My religion is guillotine, for you and your crew /
That's why I don't kill soloist, I only kill, squads /
Ruby Ibarra bars, that's, hella raw / God,
Body be like Goku, Saitama in my tactics /
Deliver a One Piece, that's Monkey D. Maurice / A,
Funky five percenter rhyming on a higher pantheon /
Ten thousand hours, shifting Gods with my mastery/
Formulating flows composed to snatch souls /
So what's a Liu Kang to a Shang Tsung? /
Son's Ichiban / Sun Tzu / Number one /
Black man trying to /

[Chorus] Dream,
I gotta dream / where are my dreams /
I gotta dream / we gotta dream
Moving on dreams / Believe my dreams /
(Black man powered by the sun, light/like)
Dream motherfucker, dream motherfucker / Dream /
(Dream motherfucker, dream motherfucker / Dream)
Dream motherfucker, dream motherfucker / Dream /
(Dream motherfucker, dream motherfucker / Dream)
