Music from the heart

Sting – “A thousand years”

A thousand years, a thousand more,
A thousand times a million doors to eternity
I may have lived a thousand lives, a thousand times
An endless turning stairway climbs
To a tower of souls
If it takes another thousand years, a thousand wars,
The towers rise to numberless floors in space
I could she’d another million tears, a million breaths,
A million names but only one truth to face

A million roads, a million fears
A million suns, ten million years of uncertainty
I could speak a million lies, a million songs,
A million rights, a million wrongs in this balance of time
But if there was a single truth, a single light
A single thought, a singular touch of grace
Then following this single point , this single flame,
The single haunted memory of your face

I still love you
I still want you
A thousand times the mysteries unfold themselves
Like galaxies in my head

I may be numberless, I may be innocent
I may know many things, I may be ignorant
Or I could ride with kings and conquer many lands
Or win this world at cards and let it slip my hands
I could be cannon food, destroyed a thousand times
Reborn as fortune’s child to judge another’s crimes
Or wear this pilgrim’s cloak, or be a common thief
I’ve kept this single faith, I have but one belief

I still love you
I still want you
A thousand times the mysteries unfold themselves
Like galaxies in my head
On and on the mysteries unwind themselves
Eternities still unsaid
‘Til you love me


More lyrics:

…only kindness remains

“When you realize where you come from, no imagination can move you to believe that you are separate. Everything is seen for what it is, and you understand that no one is in danger of losing anything but his identification. And in that forever good news, in the face of everything that appears to be real, only kindness remains…. There is nothing beyond that, not one thought. This world is enough for me. Anything I ever need to do or be is in this unlimited space… It’s always more beautiful here, wherever I am, than any story of a future or a past.” – Byron Katie, A thousand names for joy.

The Voice Within

The Inner Guidance is so precise and detailed and yet in its pure essence so completely, completely formless! The more I trust completely this formlessness of guidance, the more precise and detailed it gets.

Just to assume in my imagination as possibility –  that a perfectly synchronistic guidance is occurring in my life ALREADY – that’s so huge, soooo huge! Why? Because even before I get to experienced it… my very ability to see it, to imagine it as possible – is already nothing less than touching its first reality.
