Discovering a new Playlist

Art always speaks to me, and I couldn't help but smile when I saw this image today...

I love the ancient / future aspects of this art!

What new music have you discovered lately?

How is the universal language of song fueling your soul?

Our Deepest Fear













"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness,that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant,gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn't serve this world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us; It is not just in some of us - it's in everyone! And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others!

I'll Meet You There

Another powerful song by David Wilcox:

Out Beyond Ideas
from Out Beyond Ideas




Out beyond ideas
of wrongdoing and rightdoing
there is a field. I'll meet you there.

Out beyond ideas
of wrongdoing and rightdoing
there is a field. I'll meet you there.

When the soul lies down in that grass,
The world is too full to talk about.
Ideas, language, even the phrase
each other, doesn't make any sense.

Jalaludin Rumi

Translated by: Coleman Barks and John Moyne
From: The Essential Rumi, 1985, Copyright Coleman Barks

Absolutely Clear

Check out these lyrics from Out Beyond Ideas by David Wilcox

Absolutely Clear
from Out Beyond Ideas


Don't surrender your loneliness
So quickly, Let it cut more deep.
Let it ferment and season you.
As few human or devine ingredients can.

Something missing in my heart tonight,
Has made my eyes so soft,
My voice so tender.
My need of God absolutely clear.

Don't surrender your loneliness so quickly.


Shams-ud-din Muhammad Hafiz

Translated by: Daniel Ladinsky

Out Beyond Ideas



I haven't blogged in awhile, but I wanted to write about this new David Wilcox CD. I went with some friends to see Dave in concert last Thursday at the Barns of Wolf Trap.

These lyrics have been resonating in me ever since.

God, Our God

God, our God
Creator, Redeemer, Inspirer
we trust your mystery.

You are at the end
before the beginning,
The flower
preceding the seed.
You are the fruit
before the tree,
The necessity
within our need.
You are the purpose
preceding the patterns,
the pure wind
before all speech.
You are the meaning
between the lines,
the finding
before our seeking.
You are the past
we cannot leave,
The pre-life
that dies to live.

God, our God,
Creator, Redeemer, Inspirer
we adore your mystery.
