Electro lyrics
sometimes love is electric...

Gratitude Train lyrics
thankfulness brings climb on board!

Hello lyrics
seeing beyond anger to the Buddha nature in everyone

Every Colour Of The Rainbow lyrics
Openness: the First (of 14) Mindfulness Trainings

Belief is not a loaded gun
Every colour of the rainbow leads me home

She stood by the river, she wanted to cross
But she needed a vessel to carry her aloft
So she became a carpenter and built a little boat
She hoped that though the waves were rough, she could stay afloat...

Beyond any notion of right and wrong
Beyond the monochrome
Beyond dualistic – there’s a man wearing lipstick
Every colour of the rainbow leads me home

The day he saw the butterfly, he stood, transfixed
Her beauty burned into his eyes, his heart was beating quick
His love became obsession, he could think of nothing else
He wanted this fine creature only for himself...

Can I hold these views lightly, remember to let go
Can I stay unattached to what I know?
Dismantle every idol, not be blinded by the sun
Belief is not a loaded gun

Sweep Out lyrics
New Year, New You!

Every Day Is A Holiday lyrics
the gift of presence

I Won't Get Lost lyrics
promising to remain mindful

Freedom Is A Bird lyrics
finally letting go of worrying what others may think...

Oceans lyrics
in honour of all the beautiful creatures of the sea...and the sea Herself

81 Degrees lyrics
with gratitude to Pearl, whom I met in Svalbard (28 June 2016)
