What an amazing album!! A real psycho/spiritual rock opera. The journey begins with the spiritual torment brought by the dawn of Trump era. The listener is lead through a musical journey of despair to a resolution of hope and appreciation for life.
For as long as I can remember on my own spiritual trekking, the question of good versus evil has been a puzzle. The 2016 election has amplified that question.
Where I have come to, is that there is a transcendent and infinite benevolence that contains both the light and the dark, both the good and the evil.
That spacious moment…that infinite container that is ever-expanding eternity…is the unobstructed light. It is a transcendent and fierce goodness, an indestructible and infinite life that holds duality like a grain of sand, with reverberating laughter and ultimately a tender compassion. The unobstructed light burns through the blindness of duality, in response to our intention to see it. This is the deeper current to which I return like a mantra, and that returning is the navigation to a new ground of being.
We’ll know a better day. See only the sparks, release the world story. Thus spake Pfd. 5/27/17
