What This World Needs: Some thoughts on a Sunday morning
More love, more compassion, more music, more prayer, more laughter, more gratitude, more community, more communication. Less hate, less ego, less greed, less fundamentalism, less exclusiveness.
“In these Arms, A Song for All Beings” is a peaceful, meditative, spiritual journey into a place of calm abiding and lovingkindness. I hope you’ll feel as inspired and comforted by this music as I do. Peaceful Sunday to you.
“This music is dedicated to our shared broken heartedness amidst the world’s suffering and our common desire to meet that sorrow with courage, service and great compassion.” ~~from the video’s Youtube page
In these Arms,
A Song for all Beings
I cannot turn my eyes, I cannot count the cost
Of all that has been broken, all that has been lost
I cannot understand, the suffering that life brings
War and hate and hunger
And a million other things
When I’ve done all that I can
And I try to do my part
Let sorrow be a doorway
Into an open heart
And the light on the hills is full of mercy
The wind in the trees it comes to save me
This silence it will never desert me
I long to hold the whole world in these arms
May all beings be happy
May all beings be safe
May all beings everywhere be free

May all beings be happy.
May all beings be safe.
May all beings be free from suffering.
May all beings live in peace.
