about

As we come full circle, creating the closure, bringing the head of the snake around to bite its own tail.

As we sit in circles large and small across the globe, focusing our intention on navigating with ease and grace through the changes facing us as a species, a planet, a universe.

As we join hands in circles and dance our way elegantly and blissfully into a new existence based on true partnership, love and abundance.

I share these songs, which have been inspired by and in turn have inspired the change and growth within myself, in the sincere hope that they may inspire change and growth within you.

Gratitude to the late great Terence McKenna for his inspiring words in "Live Love Evolve", and to his brother Dennis who encouraged me to use these samples in this context.

Gratitude to Steve Swayne, who took the cover image during the Fire Event at the Woodford Folk Festival, and granted permission for its use.

Blessings, gratitude and love as always to my partner Laurel.

Om Shanti Shanti Shanti

Track Name: Green Memory
Ah, come to me in the forest
Ah, Come to me in the green
Come to me in the desert and the mountains
Let me show you things unseen

When I created this universe
I knew there was a chance that I’d forget
That the beauty and perfection of my handicraft
That the infinite interplay of light and matter
Forming endless images of seeming separation
Would produce a glow of ego leading to the dislocation
Of the part of me residing in this apparently one reality
Would make me start to dream that I myself
Am just a minor insignificant fraction
Of the wonder of eternity
Me existing within it
Instead of it existing within me

Ah, come to me in the forest
Come to me in the green
Come to me in the desert and the mountains
Let me show you things unseen

And sow I sowed my creation with the seeds of memory
Seemingly ordinary entities intertwining with so many
Weaving warp and weft of life
Interminable web of life
The infinite beauty of life
And these seeds grew from thoughts and ideas
Into vines, leaves, flowers,
Fruiting bodies and spikey stalks
Scattered throughout my consciousness
Scattered throughout my illusory world
Like password reset questions on the website of my mind

Ah, come to me in the forest
Come to me in the green
Come to me in the desert and the mountains
Let me show you things unseen

And sure enough, I forgot
And lived in a dream
Where I am I and you are you
And they are them and far away out of reach
Out of control…

But somewhere in the recesses, the core memory
Lingered a vestige of the truth
Lying dormant for a million seeming lifetimes
Lifetimes of separation
But lifetimes of learning
Lifetimes of longing
Lifetimes of yearning
For re-connection

Ah, come to me in the forest
Come to me in the green
Let me show you things you have forgotten
Let me show you things unseen

Until, seemingly by chance, all across my world
Adventurous parts of me felt driven to explore
Felt drawn to taste, to combine, to brew, to consume
Seemingly insignificant, the lowliest of plants
Only to find …

The truth once again at last
And immediately began the long and joyful process
The joining of the dots of reconnection
Fitting the disparate puzzle pieces back together
Forming truth out of chaos
Forming beauty out of pain
Forming love out of fear
Forming unity out of fragmentation
Forming, no re-forming
One.

Ah, come to me in the forest
Come to me in the green
Let me show you things you have forgotten
Let me show you things unseen
Track Name: Fireflies
Fireflies flashing in a flowing flight of freedom
We’re standing in the stillness on the bridge of our connection
Drifting in the bliss of life without reason
Breathing in the beauty of the wonder of perfection

We’re basking in the glow of love received
Basking in the glow of love that’s been given
Drifting in the flow of bliss and peace
Floating in the flow of love without condition

Energy follows thought
Thought follows the breathing rhythm
The breath of life follows love
Love circles round and returns to the giver

Green leaves growing on the edge of our perception
Red seeds opening the doorways to perfection
Blue and Gold glowing in the field of inner vision
White light in black night filling us with wisdom
Track Name: Permission
I give myself permission to be happy
To be loved
To be everything I am
To be free

… To be me

I give my self permission to believe
To receive
To perceive
To be me

I give myself permission to shine
To be divine
To align with all that is and will be
To be me

I give myself permission to surrender
To breathe
To go with the flow
To be me
Track Name: Fractal Vision
Jai Ma, Haoma, Acuminata, Jai Ma

I close my eyes and look deep into the darkness
And what do I see?
I see a myriad of tiny points of light
Swirling slowly in colours unimaginable, so beautiful

I focus on just one point … that one there …
And see that it’s a galaxy light years wide and far away
Hundreds of billions of stars, there inside my own consciousness

Drawing closer, the galaxy spreads across my vision and I single out just one star … that one there …
Just one among so many, yet so special

I come closer and notice planets circling this star in exquisite rhythm of ages
I feel drawn to one … the third one out from this beautiful blazing sun
I see its oceans, its clouds, its continents, its islands
I see its mountains, its rivers, its trees, its animals

And there, right there, I see me sitting with my eyes closed,
Looking into the darkness

I open my eyes and look at a drop of water on a rain-wet leaf
The sunlight glints and draws my attention closer

I look deep into the drop of water
And I see a myriad of tiny points of light
Hundreds of billions of atoms
Each one so perfect, made of so many tiny particles of energy
Circling each other in exquisite rhythm of ages

I look closer at one atom … that one there … and find that I am I fact looking at a planet orbiting a sun
I see its oceans, its clouds, its continents, its islands
I see its mountains, its rivers, its trees, its animals

And there, right there, I see me sitting …

And my eyes are open!
Track Name: Live Love Evolve (feat. Terence McKenna)
Create the space
Express your clear intention
Drink the potion
Now let’s go!

Create the space
Express your clear intention
Breathe the fire
Now let’s make love!

Create the space
Express your clear intention
Choose your reality
Now let’s live!

Find the universe in a grain of sand
Find your destiny in the palm of your hand

So Live Love Evolve!
Track Name: Waves of Ecstasy
Riding the waves of ecstasy
Through lifetimes of transcendence
From root to crown and back again
Share our souls’ true interdependence

Riding the waves of ecstasy
In daily love devotion
Feeling you lying next to me
An explosion of emotion

Feel the breath of fire inside
As we build towards surrender
Fell it climbing higher inside
And explode in divine surrender

Hey Jagadambe,
Jagadambe, Jagadambe Jai Jai Ma!

Hey Ma Durga
Jagadambe Jai Jai Ma!
Hey Ma Kali
Jagadambe Jai Jai Ma!
Track Name: Madness of Love
Wouldn’t it be great if we all spoke the truth
Right from the start
No embroidery, no holding back, just honesty
Right from the heart

Wouldn’t it be great if we all heard the truth
And understood
That every syllable that was uttered was intended
Only for good

And wouldn’t it be great if we all trusted in abundance
If we opened to receive and accepted with gladness
And wouldn’t it be great if our only lifelong mission
Was to love without condition
And delight in the Madness of Love

Sat Nam
Track Name: Wood Trees (Dog Fleas)
At times when you can’t see the wood for the trees,
Just look at the trees
And say “How Beautiful!”

At times when you can’t see the dog for the fleas,
Just look at the fleas
And love them too

Well don’t sweat the small stuff
It’ll be all right
And if you wake up shaking
In the middle of the night
Reach for your beloved
And hold him or her tight
Even if it’s just you
That’s what you’ve got to do

Well everyone’s got their problems
That’s true
But it’s you that’s got the problems,
Not the problems that have got you
So let them go
See them drift off into the beautiful blue sky
See them change from dark and lonely grey
To the colours of this wonderful day
And explode into a million shining fragments
And reform into a deep and lasting bliss
Because that is what this universe really is.
