ILLUSIONS


IS THIS A WORLD OF ILLUSIONS
MULTI-DIMENSIONAL SOULS
IS THIS LIFE JUST A FANTASY
OF WHICH WE HAVE NO CONTROL

SOME THINGS ARE NEVER MEANT TO BE
SOME THINGS WE DON'T WANT TO KNOW
SOME TIMES THE TRUTH IS HARD TO SEE
SOME TIMES YOU HAVE TO LET GO

IN THIS WORLD OF CONFUSION
LIFE IS A MYSTERY
WHICH IS FACT - WHICH IS FICTION
WHAT'S REALITY

SOME THINGS ARE NEVER MEANT TO BE
SOME THINGS WE DON'T WANT TO KNOW
SOME TIMES THE TRUTH IS HARD TO SEE
SOME TIMES WE MUST LET IT GO
LET IT GO!

A GENTLE BREEZE IS BLOWING
THE ORANGE WORLD IS PEAKING BEHIND THE CLOUDS
A DAY IS ALIVE AS THE SHADOW IS SEEKING
A STONE LIES ALONE ON THE GROUND
AND ALL IS ALIVE

ENVISION A WORLD OF RESPECT, BEAUTY AND HARMONY
A WORLD WHERE CHILDREN ARE HAPPILY LAUGHING
SETTING THEIR SPIRITS FREE
AND ALL IS ALIVE

IS THIS A WORLD OF ILLUSIONS
MULTI-DIMENSIONAL SOULS
IS THIS LIFE JUST A FANTASY
OF WHICH WE HAVE NO CONTROL

SOME THINGS ARE NEVER MEANT TO BE
SOME THINGS WE DON'T WANT TO KNOW
SOME TIMES THE TRUTH WILL SET YOU FREE
SOME TIMES WE MUST LET IT GO
LET IT GO!

SURRENDER IN SILENCE


This was written after the US invaded AFGHANISTAN and IRAQ, when hardly anyone had the nerve to say that it was wrong, we all went silent and those that didn't suffered for it in one way or another,,,,not being "patriotic" or whatever the case may be. There is a way to speak our minds without using violence and what I simply call "noise" I want to let all of you know that I love our country AMERICA, but there are "people" behind the scenes that seem to want to wreak havoc and stir up trouble wherever and whenever they can and those are the people that need to be stopped. I hope you do not think of me as unkind or undeserving of PEACE because of this fact...they do exist and live for injustice and strive on it. I do not agree with them,,,we need to make a world, a WHOLE WORLD full of PEACE and LOVE and end the violence once and for all. We are entering the Fifth World NOW! It needs to be a time of balance, peace, and compassion everlasting! NOW is OUR time to do this....NOW...not tomorrow, not next week, next year or in our next lifetime but NOW!


SURRENDER IN SILENCE

NO VOICE NO NAME
SURRENDER IN SILENCE
YOU SHARE IN THE BLAME
JUST REMEMBER THAT VIOLENCE
CAN ONLY LEAD TO SHAME
SURRENDER IN SILENCE
AND YOU LOSE IN THIS GAME

WHY HURT ONE ANOTHER
CAN'T WE SEE EYE TO EYE
GOD ONLY KNOWS
WE'RE LIVING A LIE

SURRENDER IN SILENCE
NEVER SPEAKING A WORD
DON'T SURRENDER IN SILENCE
YOUR VOICE WILL NEVER BE HEARD
JUST REMEMBER THAT VIOLENCE
ONLY LEADS TO SHAME

SURRENDER IN SILENCE
AND YOU LOSE IN THIS GAME
WHY HURT ONE ANOTHER
CAN'T WE SEE EYE TO EYE
GOD ONLY KNOWS
WE'RE LIVING A LIE

SURRENDER IN SILENCE
NO VOICE NO NAME
SURRENDER IN SILENCE
YOU SHARE IN THE BLAME
JUST REMEMBER THAT VIOLENCE
CAN ONLY LEAD TO SHAME
SURRENDER IN SILENCE
AND IT'S THE END OF THIS GAME

LESSONS OF LOVE


IN THE BEGINNING THEY SHOWED US NO SIGN
TO CONVINCE US WE'RE WINNING
THE HEARTS AND THE MINDS

WERE THE WEAPONS OF DESTRUCTION
WE CAN NO LONGER FIND
JUST INCONCIEVABLE REASONS
FOR CROSSING THE LINE

WHERE IS THE MESSAGE
THAT COMES FROM ABOVE
ARE WE LEARNING THE LESSON
HAVE WE SUFFERED ENOUGH
IS AN EYE FOR AN EYE
IS IT NEVER ENOUGH
TO TEACH US THE LESSON OF LOVE
LESSONS OF LOVE

SOME PEOPLE SPEND THEIR WHOLE LIVES
SEARCHING FOR AN ANSWER
WHILE OTHERS PRAY TO THEIR GODS
FOR FORGIVENESS
FOR ALL THAT THEY DO

THERE IS AN ANSWER
IT COMES FROM ABOVE
ARE WE LEARNING THE LESSONS
OR HAVE WE TAKEN TOO MUCH
WILL AN EYE FOR AN EYE
EVER BE ENOUGH
TO TEACH US THE LESSONS OF LOVE
LESSONS OF LOVE

COALITION OF THE GREEN


COALITION OF THE GREEN


THEY’RE CLIMBING ON THE MOUNTAINS
CLIMBING THRU THE TREES
SCREAMING AT THE TOP OF THEIR VOICES
PEOPLE GOTTA FIGHT TO BE FREE

PEOPLE ARE RESTLESS
AND THEY DON’T LIKE WHAT THEY SEE
GONNA FORM AN ALLIANCE
THE COALITION OF THE GREEN

THEY’RE DANCING AROUND THE FIRE
DANCING IN THE STREETS
NON VIOLENT ACTION
IT’S THEIR CIVIL LIBERTY

THE PEOPLE ARE RESTLESS
AND THEY DON’T LIKE WHAT THEY SEE
GONNA FORM AN ALLIANCE
A COALITION OF THE GREEN

LOCKED UP TO THE FENCES
CHAINED UP TO THE GATES
LAYING DOWN DEFENSELESS
HOW MUCH MORE CAN THEY TOLERATE

THE PEOPLE ARE RESTLESS
THEY DON’T LIKE WHAT THEY SEE
GONNA FORM AN ALLIANCE
THE COALITION OF THE GREEN

PEACE AND LOVE CAN ONLY OCCUR WHEN WE MAKE IT HAPPEN!


KILLING FIELDS

FROM THE POPPY FIELDS OF AFGANISTAN
TO THE OIL FIELDS OF IRAQ
WE’RE GONNA TAKE IT ALL FOR THE PROFITS
NEVER GONNA GIVE IT BACK

THE DIAMOND MINES OF SOUTH AFRICA
ARE FOR THOSE WHO CAN AFFORD
THE COCA FIELDS OF COLUMBIA
FOR THOSE WHO ARE JUST PLAIN BORED

ARE WE GOING TO BUILD A METROPOLIS – IN THE COUNTRY OF IRAN
ARE WE WILLING TO RISK AN APOCALYPSE – JUST BECAUSE WE CAN
NEAR THE ISLAND OF INDONESIA – THERE’S A TROPICAL PARADISE
SHALL WE TURN IT ALL TO ASHES – A SUPERFICIAL SACRIFICE

LOOKING UP WE SEE ALL AROUND US – THE SOCIAL INJUSTICE
WE WANT TO TOUCH - BUT OUR ARMS THEY WON’T REACH
BRING THEM CLOSER – DON’T TAKE US FURTHER
HOW MANY MORE LIVES - DOES IT MATTER
IF OUR LAST BREATH IS THE FIRST STEP
JOIN TOGETHER AS FRIENDS AGAIN

DON’T TURN THEM ALL AWAY
WE’RE TURNING THEM ALL AWAY
LAND OF THE FREE - HOME OF THE BRAVE
IS TURNING THEM ALL AWAY

ON THE ROLLING HILLS OF IRELAND – THE BRITISH TANKS WILL ROAR
THROUGH THE BEAUTIFUL SKIES OVER PALESTINE
ISRAELI JETS WILL SOAR

IT’S THE KILLING FIELDS OF AMERICA
WE’RE ARMING THEM ALL WORLD WIDE
BREEDING GROUNDS FOR HATRED
LEAVING NO ONE LEFT ON OUR SIDE

WE’RE TURNING THEM ALL AWAY – TURNING THEM ALL AWAY
LAND OF THE FREE – HOME OF THE BRAVE
IS TURNING THEM ALL AWAY

THE NATIVE LAND OF AMERICA
HOME OF THE BRAVE – LAND OF THE FREE
IS TURNING THEM ALL AWAY

SHELL PEOPLE THEY CALL US


NAY DOSH

I dance for those who can't
I dance for those who've been here before and
for those to come.

With each step, each heartbeat
I'm one with the spirit.

This is the center of the universe,
a ceremony of world renewal.

It's close to dusk, the women are dressing their hair,
putting on their finest shells, laughing and smiling to
try and calm the butterflies, like their grandmothers before
them.

The sacred fires are built outside
as there is one for men and one for women.

The people are filling up the dance house,
waiting patiently for their grandchildren and relatives
to dance for them.

The medicine is burned to cleanse the dance house,
the people, the future generations.

The prayer song is given,
the men move to the rhythm of the music.
Then come the women to make the line complete.

We connect our arms, the men and the women,
the line is dancing all in time with the singer,
this is unity - at it's finest.

The dancers are praying with every step, every heartbeat
we dance for our ancestors, for the future generations and
for the new year.

The dancers shadows reflect the spirit of our ancestors,
as they are smiling with them, as the fire is burning,
wordless prayers are spoken and the abalone shells are
glistening all over this land.

I LOVE THE MOUNTAINS


I LOVE THE MOUNTAINS

I KISSED THE STARS GOODNIGHT
LAID MY BODY ON THE GROUND
THE ATMOSPHERE SO PEACEFUL
NOT A SOUND AROUND
I REST MY HEAD UPON THE BED OF FALLEN LEAVES
THE MOONLITE CASTING SHADOWS
GLEEMING THRU THE TREES

I LOVE THE MOUNTAINS
THAT’S WHERE THE WORLD BEGINS AND ENDS FOR ME
I FEEL THE FRESHNESS OF THE CLOTHING OF THE EARTH
I SEE THE BEAUTY THAT WAS GIVEN FOR ME TO SEE

THE BIRDS AWAKE UPON THE BREAK OF DAWNS DAYLIGHT
TO POLISH OFF THE PEACEFUL DREAMS OF YESTERDAYS NIGHT
ALL ABOUT GATHER ABOUT TO WELCOME YOU TO THEIR OWN
AND EVERYWHERE IS FULL OF LIFE
WHEREVER YOU GO YOU’RE NOT ALONE

I LOVE THE MOUNTAINS
THAT’S WHERE THE WORLD BEGINS AND ENDS FOR ME
I FEEL THE FRESHNESS OF THE CLOTHING OF THE EARTH
I SEE THE BEAUTY THAT WAS GIVEN FOR ME TO SEE

AND I APPRECIATE THAT THIS PRECIOUS LAND WAS GIVEN TO ME

AN OLD CREE SAYING


ONLY AFTER THE LAST TREE HAS BEEN CUT DOWN
ONLY AFTER THE LAST RIVER HAS BEEN POISONED
ONLY AFTER THE LAST FISH HAS BEEN CAUGHT
ONLY THEN,

INSIDE YOU


I SEE YOU
I SEE THE SMILE THAT'S ON YOUR FACE
I SEE THE SHINE IN YOUR EYES
I SEE YOU - SEEING ME

DON'T YOU FEEL IT GROWING
INSIDE YOU - INSIDE YOU
FEEL THE LOVE IT'S FLOWING
INSIDE YOU - INSIDE YOU

I FEEL YOU - TOUCH THE SMILE THATS ON YOUR FACE
I FEEL THE WARMTH OF YOU
I FEEL YOU TOUCHING ME

DON'T YOU FEEL IT GROWING
INSIDE YOU - INSIDE YOU
FEEL THE LOVE IT'S FLOWING
INSIDE YOU

I SPEAK TO YOU
I TELL YOU WHAT I SEE AND WHAT I FEEL
AND I KNOW
I KNOW THAT YOU ARE LOVE

DON'T YOU FEEL IT GROWING
INSIDE YOU - INSIDE YOU
I FEEL THE LOVE IT'S FLOWING
INSIDE YOU - INSIDE YOU

NAMASTE


AN ANCIENT SANSKRIT UNDERSTANDING:

I HONOR THE PLACE IN YOU IN WHICH THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE DWELLS

I HONOR THE PLACE IN YOU WHICH IS OF LOVE, OF TRUTH, OF LIGHT AND OF PEACE

WHEN YOU ARE IN THAT PLACE IN YOU...

AND I AM IN THAT PLACE IN ME...

WE ARE ONE!

 

THE ANCIENT ONE


The Ancient One

by Bearwalker

Ancient One sat in the shade of his tree in front of his cave. Red People came to him and he said to Red People, "Tell me your vision."

And Red People answered, "The elders have told us to pray in this manner, and that manner, and it is important that only we pray as we have been taught for this has been handed down to us by the elders."

"Hmmmm," said the Ancient One.

Then Black People came to him and he said to Black People, "Tell me your vision."

And Black People answered, "Our mothers have said to go to this building and that building and pray in this manner and that manner. And our fathers have said to bow in this manner and that manner when we pray. And it is important that we do only this when we pray."

"Hmmmm," said the Ancient One.

Then Yellow People came to him and he said to Yellow People, "Tell me your vision."

And Yellow People answered, "Our teachers have told us to sit in this manner and that manner and to say this thing and that thing when we pray. And it is important that we do only this when we pray."

"Hmmmm," said the Ancient One.

Then White People came to him and he said to White People, "Tell me your vision."

And White People answered, "Our Book has told us to pray in this way and that way and to do this thing and that thing, and it is very important that we do this when we pray."

"Hmmmm," said the Ancient One.

Then Ancient One spoke to the Earth and said, "Have you given the people a vision?" And the Earth said, "Yes, a special gift for each one, but the people were so busy speaking and arguing about which way is right they could not see the gift I gave each one of them." And the Ancient One asked same question of Water and Fire and Air and got the same answer. Then Ancient One asked Animal, and Bird, and Insect, and Tree, and Flower, and Sky, and Moon, and Sun, and Stars, and all of the other Spirits and each told him the same.

Ancient One thought this was very sad. He called Red People, Black People, Yellow People, and White People to him and said to them. "The ways taught to you by your Elders, and your Mothers and Fathers, and Teachers, and Books are sacred. It is good that you respect those ways, for they are the ways of your ancestors. But the ancestors no longer walk on the Face of the Earth Mother. You have forgotten your own Vision. Your Vision is right for you but no one else. Now each of you must pray for your own Visions, and be still enough to see them, so you can follow the way of the heart. It is a hard way. It is a good way.

BEAUTIFUL WORLD


BEAUTIFUL WORLD

POLITICAL CORRUPTION AND CORPORATE GREED
ALWAYS TAKING MORE THAN THEY REALLY NEED
THEY STAB US IN THE BACK – AS THEY WATCH US BLEED
STILL THEY’RE TAKING MORE AND MORE

THEY’RE HIDING IN THE SHADOWS OF SECRECY
IS IT REALLY THEIR MANIFEST DESTINY
TO CONQUER AND DIVIDE SOCIETY
BY BEATING ON THE DRUMS OF WAR


THEY’RE BEATING ON THE DRUMS OF WAR
BEATING ON THE DRUMS OF WAR – IS IT EVEN WORTH FIGHTING FOR
BEATING ON THE DRUMS OF WAR

FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC POLICIES
DESIGNED TO PROVIDE OUR SECURITY
BUT THEY TAKE AWAY OUR FREEDOM – AND OUR LIBERTY
IS IT EVEN WORTH DYING FOR

NOW THEY’RE BEATING ON THE DRUMS OF WAR
BEATING ON THE DRUMS OF WAR - IS IT EVEN WORTH DYING FOR
BEATING ON THE DRUMS OF WAR

WALK DOWN A TRAIL ON A STAR LIT NIGHT
ALL YOU RESTLESS SOULS ON YOUR ENDLESS FLIGHT
GET OUT FROM UNDER THOSE CITY LIGHTS
LET YOUR INNER VOICE BE HEARD
DON’T BE AFRAID TO STAND AND FIGHT
OUT AGAINST THE MADNESS WITH ALL YOUR MIGHT
NO ONE CAN TELL YOU YOU HAVE NO RIGHT
TO LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD
IT’S STILL A BEAUTIFUL WORLD

POLITICAL CORRUPTION AND CORPORATE GREED
ALWAYS TAKING MORE THAN THEY REALLY NEED
THEY STAB US IN THE BACK – AS THEY WATCH US BLEED
STILL THEY’RE TAKING MORE AND MORE
HIDING IN THE SHADOWS OF SECRECY
DESIGNING THEIR MILITARY STRATEGY
TO CONQUER AND DIVIDE SOCIETY
IS IT EVEN WORTH FIGHTING FOR
BEATING ON THE DRUMS OF WAR


SEE HOW THEY POISON OUR WATER
LOOK WHAT THEY’VE DONE TO THE AIR
I KNOW WE CAN MAKE IT BETTER
STILL TIME TO SHOW WE STILL CARE

FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC POLICIES
DESIGNED TO PROVIDE FOR OUR SECURITY
BUT THEY TAKE AWAY OUR FREEDOM AND OUR LIBERTY
IS IT EVEN WORTH DYING FOR

DON’T BE AFRAID TO STAND UP AND FIGHT
OUT AGAINST THE MADNESS WITH ALL YOUR MIGHT
NO ONE CAN TELL YOU – YOU HAVE NO RIGHT
LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD
IT’S STILL A BEAUTIFUL WORLD

~ CHASER OF A DREAM ~


ONCE THERE WAS A DREAMER
HE WANTED TO BE
ALL THERE WAS - WAS HE
HE SAW HIMSELF AS MANY THINGS
SOMEONE HE WAS NOT
SOMEONE HE WOULD BE

I'LL FOLLOW YOU
TAKE ME DREAM
I'LL CLOSE MY EYES

HEAR THE VOICES IN THE CALLING OF THE NIGHT
I AM NO WHERE YOU CANNOT SEE ME
FOLLOW ME - CHASER OF A DREAM

CHASER OF A DREAM
YOUR JOURNEY IS IN SIGHT
YOU HAVE MY EYES TO DO YOUR SEEKING

COME WITH ME GAZERS OF THE MOON
TO A PLACE YOU HAVE NEVER BEEN BEFORE
YOU'LL ALWAYS BE EVERYWHERE AFTER ME
YOU CAN'T RUN
YOU'RE MOVING TO SLOW

CATCH ME IF YOU CAN BEFORE I DISAPPEAR
KNOWING NOT OF OTHERS THAT MAY FOLLOW ME
YOU'LL ALWAYS BE A CHASER OF A DREAM

INSIDE YOUR EYES
THERE'S SOMEONE ELSE YOU WANT TO BE
ONCE YOU'RE THERE
IT'S NOT QUITE AS IT SEEMS
YOU WANT TO BE MORE
A CHASER OF A DREAM

RUMI


The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you;
Don't go back to sleep.
You must ask for what you really want;
Don't go back to sleep.
People are going back and forth across the doorsill where the two worlds touch.
The door is round and open.
Don't go back to sleep.
- Rumi
