They Were 04:35
He led her to the window, and showed her scarlet flowers they talked with eyes and laughed and cried for centuries and hours till she took his hand and in his heart a butterfly passed by and time was as irrelevant as food or wind or sky. He led her to the forest and the animals and trees agreed she was the loveliest. They sailed upon the breeze to where reality ]confronted their dreams of liberty. yeah reality confronted their dreams of liberty. In the garden plant a seed It may turn out to be a weed, cause peace is never guaranteed So they knelt down and agreed to love, not hate, to live, not wait, to hug and kiss and never miss the only moment that was this. They were one, they were two they were small, they were huge they were water, they were glue they were me, they were you. He led her to the highest edge of all the universe she leapt and flew Then taught him to Color yellow, color blue they caught a rainbow, then he knew to love, not hate, to live, not wait, to hug and kiss and never miss the only moment that was this. They were one, they were two they were small, they were huge they were water, they were glue they were me, they were you. They were one, they were two they were small, they were huge they were water, they were glue they were we. They were, they wa, they wa they wa they wa, they wa they wa, wa-ter They were, they wa, they wa they wa (never miss the only moment, that is this)

Adventure is calling me, away from security calling to explore new views or, to bravely stand true. danger might be just in my mind, It may be just the fear of something new. Danger may be just, a fear, of something new. When at night I get an insect bite, it's time to go inside, should I follow, flee or fight, when I'm called called higher to try what I've not yet tried its hard to know if I should flee or hide Oh its hard to decide if I should follow, flee or fight when I'm Called higher as a lover of freedom, Higher to the edge of inner space called away, from my fear of failure called higher - higher, higher to lift the human race called higher - as I experience grace Always, it is best to believe that there are choices that I can make Always, the voices of what feel wrong lead to another mistake Sometimes I am called to be more than what I think that I can be Maybe that is exactly what I need, to help me believe I am Called higher as a lover of freedom, Higher to the edge of inner space called away, from my fear of failure called higher - higher, higher to lift the human race called higher - as I experience grace Sometimes safety is a blindfold, I tie across my eyes Sometimes the hard path is the way that I am being called though pain and peace are both part of me, I am called to live abundantly, see the stars beyond the limitless sky where I am Called higher as a lover of freedom, Higher to the edge of inner space called away, from my fear of failure called higher - higher, higher to lift the human race called higher - as I experience grace Called higher, higher, higher!

Anxiety again; There seems to be no intervention I would rather dance with you - To have fun in the rain I want so much to be released To be – to just be me So why do I feel shame As if I am to blame? Take away the pain (x 5) And let me be myself again The Source of love wants you to know That pain is not a punishment And angels from above Are telling you the same You are important and love desires to Take away the pain. Take away the pain (x 5) And let me be myself again

Spirit Wind 02:25
Sputtering candle, roaring flame Spirit Wind inside me, Spirit Wind defines me Come and take my heart. Tearing hurry, deep breath slow Meditation clear, consolation near Running through my heart. Loudest song, Softest sound, The wind wells up inside me, Spirit wind prays for me; all ears, I hear my heart

I can’t remember leaving, - there was no sense of grieving, but I sure remember coming home: the family were there to greet us, they'd seemed so far away, they’d called by telephone to let us know. A funeral can change our lives, forever, in a day. I can’t remember leaving, but I sure remember coming home The tears, the hugs, the heart-string tugs, of faces strained and noses blown, birth marriage death, the trilogy of start, bonding and end: Leunig says, “This world’s a holiday adventure place, we are just visitors, never settled or at peace but we’ll return to we came from, when its time for us to leave.” I can’t remember leaving, - but I sure remember coming home Up till this time, it was leaving that had seemed the saddest time. It takes death to focus us, on the different paths we’d take, if only we had known. I can’t remember leaving, but I sure remember coming home Up till this time, it was leaving that had seemed the saddest time. It takes death to focus us, on the meaning of ‘alone’ I can’t remember leaving, but I sure remember coming home

Galacticity 02:43
What's behind the galaxies ]Focuses on little me Burns away security Leaves me naked, leaves me to be – exposed to my fragility Lover of humanity Frequency of healing Potential for our hearts to be Superheroes, to fight the unseen - systems of power over me Galacticity - so infinite, Galacticity - Beyond imagination. Galacticity - One blinding power Galacticity - Beyond anticipation. Energy of galaxies Pass it on to little me ]Burn away security Leave me naked, leave me to be – exposed to my own memor]y

Source of all love. I am a part of your spirit of Love's energy, It’s good for my heart, I’ll do my part, I’ll pay forward my concern, mmmm. Pardon the way that I pray. (Or if I forget to just play) I know you want me to thrive in this life From your essence I get inspired, knowing you're always on my side It’s your nature, source of all Love That you are prepared to trust in me, To power compassion, with every action I love your cosmos; All my senses agree; I love your galaxies, I love your intimacy The tiny cells inside every part of me I love your humor, how you restore me You are the source of all Love Instrumental I hold a crystal of your Love's energy, I trust your presence in me there's time for my heart, to do a small part, I’ll pay forward every good turn, I love you trusting me, I need your energy To share compassion with all I meet I love your cosmos; All my senses agree; You are the source of all Love

Rivere 03:25
Most of you is water, but there is hardness in your bones You drink the life I give you, now celebrate the presence known For I am the river I flow through you And in your hearts; you know its true: The river gives you all you need Refreshment, Purpose, Destiny. When you started rafting you didn't really know where the water wanted you to go - now you have joined me in the flow For I am the river, I flow through you And in your hearts you know its true The river gives you all you need Refreshment, Purpose, Destiny. So drink your fill and come for more excitement'n mystery Remember pain and risk are here, on the journey to the sea But I am always with you, my waters make you whole For I the river love you, and you are in my soul The river gives you all you need Refreshment, Purpose, Destiny. Take a glass of water Every time remember me Think about your nature And you will find you can be free In and on the river, we seek to share the fun of common destination and friendship there for everyone The river gives you all you need Refreshment, Purpose, Destiny. Oh yeah!

Two went through a forest, a forest a forest Two went through a forest, a forest dark and grey. Soon they lost their way there, way there, way there, soon they lost their way there, they were led astray, And the little girl said, morning is calling and the little boy said, dawn is far away.

Seeds of Joy 05:57
Lord of all complexity Let me accept everything that differs from me. I commit to look for and believe There is value and beauty in all that I see. Open my heart to allow the mystery of peace to flow through me from your ocean, yes your unlimited waters of grace to embrace reality in all that I face. I will choose forgiveness and kindness to others, as the balm I apply to this day, this will help to heal my own shame so that I may be aware of my judgments and flush them away. Encourage my heart today, so that hope will surge through me, the way the sun's bright light Burns away my depression and doubts of last night. Yes, Work through me to sow seeds of joy in my life INSTRUMENTAL sow seeds of joy in my life sow seeds of joy in my life Forgiveness and kindness to others, will be the balm I apply to this day heal my own shame so that I may be aware of my judgments and flush them away flush them away, flush them away Encourage my heart today, so that hope will surge through me, the way the sun's bright light Burns away my depression and doubts of last night. Yes, Work through me to sow seeds of joy in my life Lord of all complexity Let me accept what differs from me. I commit to look for and believe There is value and beauty in all that I see. Help me reprogram my mind Away from accusations, and comparisons and my stupid reliance on external rewards focus instead today on one act where I will be kind; with deep listening, oooh And empathy and Healing in my mind. Because my intuition knows I should treat others no differently to how I should treat myself, with dignity I know death will return us all, to your infinite unity. Lord give me awareness of my attachment, blame and fear So I can authentically see value and beauty everywhere. I will choose forgiveness and kindness to others, as the balm I apply to this day, this will heal my own shame so that I may be aware of my judgments and flush them away flush them away

about

Influenced by the work of Richard Rohr, Parker Palmer and Ken Wilbur, I was inspired to make an album of songs that reflect who we are, connected.
