Nine billion of us, drumming the same beat – together.
I chiseled out the following few verses for you, for me, for us all.
Let’s get this vibe right.
Gently close your eyes, breathe in and out.
Only this time, breathe through your heart.
If you feel the sudden twitch, it’s alright.
Take a deep sigh of relief – that’s a good start.
And so it begins…
My story is but one of billions of stories unfolding
in this moment of time.
There are many common themes we share.
This one is about love and acceptance.
It’s how it all begins,
with the sweet loving fragrance called life.
Yet, I’m always seeking something more,
wondering: What am I here for?
What have I got to give that can be lovingly received?
How can I best serve in this life?
Am I not enough the way I am?
The question – at times it feels intense.
Is it possible to feel too much?
So much, it sometimes drives me nuts…
We all come with a safety switch,
just like the fuse box comes with the home.
When the surge gets too strong,
the room will yield to the absence of light.
When it’s nighttime, it gets dark inside out.
I know that too well; I also switch off,
going from one extreme to nothing at all in my own magnetic field.
Thank God for the impeccable heartbeat;
it knows how to drum on its own.
I closed the doors on countless dreams,
and shattered futures, or so it seems,
out of worry, out of fear.
Worry and fear, a deadly weight,
can stop the flow, and seal our fate.
I need to let go of my compulsion to control,
being hesitant with the unfamiliar, the unknown.
The lasting imprints of past events
can make us fight or run away.
In the moment when I’m about to fade,
the lighting strikes…
I get an insight.
I recall that there’s a different, lighter way to take.
I can breathe through my heart,
and vibrate in a different way.
It’s not how I was programmed to respond,
it’s what I was truly meant to be.
If you know what I mean…
There’s a way to be.
I know it well; it’s always been there.
Light is right
and often, less is more.
I’ve always been grateful for guidance and words of wisdom,
but I no longer seek gurus to define my way.
because I am ‘the way’.
The wisdom of ages is inherent in us all.
Through billions of us, it flows, when we open up
and trust the synchronous flow.
As I remember and hum these sacred words
every hour of my day,
both fight and flight begin to fade away.
A kind, loving, receptive heart is what sets me free.
I thank you for hearing me out,
for receiving me,
with your open heart.
By being received, I’m able to give,
to feel and to heal.
I am not just an inept kid I was once thought to believe.
Each child holds treasures, precious and rare,
a heart that’s gentle, selfless, and fair,
a spirit that’s caring, kind, and true,
a gift to share, with me and with you.
There are 9 billion of us, drumming the same beat,
with 9 billion beautiful hearts, each moment, together,
humming the sacred tune.
A symphony of notes is more enchanting than their parts.
The union of souls, more powerful than each solitary heart.
And no matter how far on the highway I reach,
I’m always the same distance away from the ditch.
