Sweetness of the Heart
Chorus: In the sweetness of the Heart Lies the Secret of Surrender
In the Flavors of Feelings Blooms the Flower of Love


Oh my foolish heart pull out the lie of hope and fear
Oh my insane heart give up the fruitless path

Oh yogi, give up the great pretense and kiss the feet within the heart
What use is it singing mantra if the souls is a dry and barren place?

Learned fool, put down your books and kiss the feet within the heart
What is it you hope to learn that will cut your loss in death’s embrace?

How Can you know the one who lives, when you cling to the rags of mere appearance?
How will you know the taste of joy grasping to a rotting corpse?

Burn like incense crazy heart, and stain these clothes with tears of sadness
Be a fire of passion’s longing, drunk on flames of loves’ perfume

Oh my mind, be like a woman, tied by the thread of truly loving
Be a room of invitation. Be the space of emptiness.

Oh yogi, don’t forget the nut, being so proud of it’s pretty shell.
The body has it’s inward ways, cracked open they reveal the Friend

What use to wash the elephant, he’ll just throw dirt upon his back.
Oh friend what use your endless prayer if you have no love for the one who’s next to you

What is real is you and my love for you. It drives me mad with sweet embrace
Oh foolish mind, give up your fear and drown within the swelling sea

In the sweetness of the Heart Lies the Secret of Surrender
In the Flavors of Feelings Blooms the Flower of Love
