In This Love Together [Lyrics]
Words: Michael Bernard Beckwith, Music: Stephen Bray
Take a breath
As the Buddha described
“Once you hear the Truth, it’s not going to rest
Until it becomes fully available in your awareness”
There are some blessings happening in your life
And you don’t even know about them yet
There are some blessings happening
Begin by counting the ones you can see
You’re the spiritual image
and likeness of the presence
Take a breath right here
We are here to hold the space
Where we’re beginning to really see that
The presence of God is everywhere, everywhere
We want to rise high
And we have to see it to be it
We have to see that
Begin to see
with the eye behind the eye
Hear with the ear behind the ear
Feel with the heart behind the heart
So that they can see the invisible
Hear the inaudible
Do the impossible
There are some blessings happening
It’s just too good
It’s too good, this is too good!
My life is just too good
The love is just too good
My blessings are just too good
The harmony is just too good
My life is just too good
Prosperity is just too good
The love is just too good
Oh, it’s just too good
chorus
We’re in this joy together
We’re in this peace together
Oh, yes! Oh, yes!
We’re in this Love together
We want to rise high
And we have to see it to be it
We have to see that
Begin to see with the eye behind the eye
Hear with the ear behind the ear
Feel with the heart behind the heart
So that they can see the invisible
Hear the inaudible
Do the impossible
Chorus

“Heart of the universe” by Snatam Kaur and Peter Kater

I was listening to this inspirational music I came across yesterday while googling about the heart of the universe. I was pleasantly surprised to find a song bearing this phrase as its title, and it was aptly sung by Snatam Kaur, who is notable for singing spiritual, moving songs such as this.

“There is a space that exists with us ~ and around us ~ where angels sing on rays of light ~ and love pours forth, love pours forth, love pours forth ~ from the heart of the Universe”

I like what Snatam Kaur said about her music album “Heart of the Universe” in this interview:

“For me, this album represents a soul’s journey and experience on this planet. For the soul there is always a longing to merge with the Divine, with that which we are all connected to, which is in essence the Heart of the Universe. In our day to day lives most of us do not allow space for this connection, or even believe that it exists. I feel that the songs on this album are simply a pure experience of that connection. It is as if to say through music and song that yes, the voice of the soul is important, and the connection to the Divine is real. It calibrates our relationship to the Universe, reminding us that we in fact have an Infinite Source from which to draw upon and relate to.”

(From an interview with Snatam Kaur on “Heart of the universe“)

It reminds me of my reflection on Peter Rollins’ blog on this line “The confidence that comes from love has no necessary connection with ones rational reflection… To paraphrase Pascal, it is a reason of the heart that reason cannot know”, and this love is the heart of the universe, the love that knows pains and sufferings and yet lives through them, the love that embraces our doubts and weaknesses.

I learnt that her album is also well received by a number of listeners. One reviewer wrote:

“Peter Kater and Snatam Kaur have teamed to create a magical & beautiful CD! The set opens with the lovely “The Song of Your Heart” with Kater’s piano and synthesizer supporting Kaur’s gorgeous voice and the affirming lyric, “Rise before the morning light; Let your soul take its flight; God is with you listening.” “Sanctuary” follows with a glorious devotional melody, “The light of my soul, with every breath I bow to you, with love in my heart, I offer my life to you.” “Heart of the Universe” is a lovely mantra that is an almost nine-minute spiritual processional. “Carry Me” uses the writing of the Sikhs that marries a lovely melody and stunning vocal performance by Snatuam Kaur to create musical ambrosia, “Welling up, waves of emotion, guide my soul through this storm, show me the way with your mercy, guide me back home.” Other tracks like “Soft Like Wax” and “Just to Know You” are also glorious gems. This is music as unhurried as a meditation, as lovely as that connection when mind meets spirit, and as beautiful as the realization that this sublime joy will never end. “Heart of the Universe” is a tonic for the soul. Bravo! “

I also came across this article that talks about “The Path to the Heart of the Universe”, and I like its description of the mystical nature of the universe in which we live and move and have our being, and experience our oneness with the universe.

“Man is an inseparable part of the universe in which he lives and moves and has his being. There is no separation whatsoever between his roots and the roots of the universe, there is no distance between them. The same universal life flows through all things that are. The same stream of consciousness which flows in the mighty Whole and through the mighty Whole of the universe, flows therefore through man, an inseparable portion of that universe. This means that there is a pathway by which you may come into intimate relation with the heart of the universe itself; and that pathway is you, your own inner being, your own inner nature, your spiritual self. Not the self of ordinary physical man, which self is just a poor reflection of the spiritual brilliance within, but that inner self of pure consciousness, pure love for all that is, unstained by any earthly taint — your spiritual being.

When you turn to your greater self, which is the higher part of your own constitution; when you become the inner Buddha, when you become the Christ within you, although you give up the physical personality and the mental personality and the crippling things which distract you and worry you and cause you to fret and give you pain and sorrow, you enter into the sublime light of the spirit, and exchange the personality for divinity. It is worth giving up everything to attain it, for when a man gives up his life for the sake of the Christ within him he shall find it, because in so doing he finds the life universal.”

(From “The path to the heart of the universe“)

The last part of the above excerpt reminds me of the narrow path Jesus spoke about, which could be referring to the path we take as we take up our own cross and follow him, and leave behind the societal system and mindset of the world, and we will experience the zoe life he came to give us, and we also find solidarity and love in the kingdom of God with one another.

Transcendence

Here’s sharing this expansive and inspirational music – it helped lifted my soul earlier on when I listened to it, as I was feeling like a fish out of water living in this world system of performance and conformity – I feel I don’t belong to this country/society/earthly realm – I believe our true nature and identity goes beyond the planetary and sensory realm – we belong to the universe/invisible/higher plane/dimension.

Awake

This lyrical poem helps people awaken and remember who we really are – our true identity is not defined by our beliefs (or lack of beliefs) – we are simply who we are by birth and by our original design. We are created in Love and for Love.

Music:

在光輝的季節中 (In the glorious season) by S.E.N.S.

Awake, awake, awake
To the Music in You
To the Poet in You
To the Love in You
To the Power in You
To the Artist in You
To the Greatness in You

Awake to your innocence
And remember who you are
You are the Music
You are the Song
You are the Melody
You are a Workmanship
Created in Love
