[Music Review] “SOAK II” by David Bruce

Following his debut spiritual music album “SOAK I”, David Bruce has released his second album “SOAK II”. Like his first album, “SOAK II” is a mellow and melodious compendium of vocals and instrumentals, which are both soothing and inspiring to listen to.

What I love about this album is that the music and songs appear to be flowing spontaneously like a river tumbling along its course from the pristine snow-capped mountains towards the grand ocean.

David Bruce is blessed with a skilful mastery of musical instruments that brings out their sonority and harmony in his compositions. He also has a keen sense of musical intuitiveness to invent and improvise music that echoes the heartbeats of God/Goddess/Divine Love within his soul.

Because of the improvisational nature of his songs, they have an enduring quality. They sound as fresh and resonant to me today as they did when I first listened to his album back in 2011.

I hope that you will listen to his music and consider buying/downloading his album, as I believe you will find refreshment and refuge in the love of God/Goddess/Divine Love, as I have myself.

David’s music serves to facilitate that much needed (re)connection to the all-encompassing Universal Spirit that is in us, as us and around us.

May you be washed and comforted and refreshed in God’s Bathtub as you listen to “SOAK II”.

Jimmy Swaggart: “Jesus Just the Mention of Your Name”

Jesus Just the mention of your name

Flowers grow and the desert blooms again

Like Fire in winter cold, like few precious gold

Jesus Just the Mention of Your Name

Like a lighthouse is to a sailor in the midst of a midnight storm,

he’s like a harbor to an old ship That’s been battered and torn,

and he’s bread to an empty and starving heart, and he’s running water

To a soul’s heart, Jesus Just the Mention of Your Name.

Jesus Just the mention of your name

Love Can Change the World

Here’s sharing this inspiring worship song that celebrates love. As the lyrics goes, “God is love, our God is love, and love can change the world.”

I like the verse shared in the song: “God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them. This is how love is made complete in us.” Yes love and wonder is greater than everything else, and love lives in us even as we live in love and wonder.

“May we never stop this dreaming of a better world. May we never stop believing in the impossible… But love, love can change the world… God is love, our God is love, and love can change the world.”

Here’s sharing this worship video. As described by Brian McLaren in this website, it is a beautiful worship experience indeed, replete with grand visuals of creation’s beauty and stirring voices and music of humanity. I like the lyrics as well as quotes in the song, such as the quote by Richard Rohr.

“If we are created in the image and likeness of God, then whatever good, true or beautiful things we can say about humanity or creation, we can say of God exponentially. God is the beauty of creation and humanity multiplied to the infinite power.” Fr Richard Rohr

Yes, may God give us new eyes to see, new skin to feel, new lungs to breathe the wonder underneath, faith like a mustard seed to swim in God’s (Love’s) mystery. May we embrace the enchantment of the world and see the glory of God/Love that fills the earth.

“Behold what manner of love the Father hath given unto us

That we should be called the sons of God.”

Video commentary:

Worship by Godfrey Birtill

I like especially the crescendo in the middle of the song – “God is the infinite source of Love – Inexhaustible – glorious glorious glorious glorious”. Very uplifting to listen to.

This song is a sure-fire way to raise our vibrational energy and transcend dichotomies, breaking down walls of separation, and uniting people as one, celebrating the bliss in this place.
