New composition, recording, video and poem by Don V Lax (hurdy gurdy and violin): "Radiant Divinity" 2/9/2020 All rights reserved... The video is my reading of the 3 retreat-related poems from tonight and the previous 2 nights. The music was recorded tonight as well...
What shadow do we hide in
That separates us from infinite love?
How did our survival as a child or a species
Come between us and our own divine nature?
These contemplations may be painful, but so rich with potential
For the total transformation of my being into beauty
That I will sit with a tree and dive into the sea
Until everything can come into the light.
Today my heart cracked open
For the pain on this gentle planet
Where all the songs could be sung in harmony
If only we could listen with all of our senses in tune with our souls.
Let us be loving witnesses then, for ourselves and each other
To rise into the perfection for which we were born
Pristine prisms for all the light in the universe
That wants only to shine free forever.
Silver tones of moon music weave magic in the night
Calling me out into the wondrous epiphany
To dance with the beauty of the sky
Whirling with the spin of the world.
Don’t doubt this miracle
That we can live surrounded
By suffering, feeling all our pain
And still rise into joyous turning with everything.
Starting right here where we find ourselves exactly as we are
There’s a limitless journey of adventure to explore
When we realize we’re breathing in all the light
Of a universe holding us in loving embrace.
Then my heart comes into resonance
With the radiant heart of all existence
Till we are singing together with the brilliance
A million suns and moons and stars wish only to harmonize.
We learned the runes of our ancestors so well that we still pray
In a way that has nothing to do with true reverence
For the sacred intelligence imbued with love
That permeates all existence.
This very breath
Could take you home
Deep into the heart of beauty
Glowing with all the light of the universe.
The song of mercy and compassion flows through me
From a source beyond all comprehension
And I listen with careful devotion
To the perfection of wisdom.
Now is the time to surrender
Every idea of ourselves and each other
To the flame that burns forever through the night
Guiding us always onwards towards our radiant divinity.
