How Do We Wake Up

 

 

 

 

“How do we wake up?” My friend asked me this very open ended question. And I gave them a comprehensive answer eventually.

(This is a first draft and subsequent versions will have relevant links to books and videos on each subject.)

First, a bit of advice. I never listen to anyone who thinks they know what everyone should be doing, if they say “this is the only way” I tend to switch off. We are all unique with unique paths so I’m not telling anyone what to do, these are recommendations not demands. Do you.

I don’t want to be a guru. I have issues! Don’t we all? I was obsessed with enlightenment and thought about the subject extremely deeply for years but as I said I have issues, one of them is obsession and another is thinking too deeply! And my friend who asked me the following question certainly doesn’t want me to be their guru. But they asked me “how do we wake up?”

A simple question. But my answer was never going to be simple. It could have been, I could have answered “there is no you and there is no me, so there is no we to wake up”. It could have been “we are all already awake, there is nothing to do and nowhere to go.” But that’s not my style and a bit of a cop out. We can ignore the illusion of reality to give short answers that sound wise but meanwhile you’re still gonna wake up with the illusion of you, me, time and space and we all have to decide how to fill the illusion of time and space (if that’s what they are.)

So I answered as honestly as I could. First I bailed, cos I think too deep and immediately thought of several conflicting answers. Then I decided that was where to begin – there are different types of waking up and there are different ways to to achieve each. Here are a few I’ve discovered and obsessed over, to varying degrees. I obsessed so you don’t have to…

_

So different types of waking up – kundalini awakening. Political awareness awakening. Health food awakening. Energy awareness awakening. Fractal multidimensional nature of reality awakening.
All of these types of awakening affect each other, and assist each other.
(Although political awareness can temporarily slow down other types of awakening if it results in depression but I think it’s a necessary step in overall spiritual growth.)
I should add “Shadow work, emotional / psychological awakening” to the list too, it might be the most important one.
_

Kundalini awakening can be inspired by tantric sex, kundalini yoga and pranayama yoga. I can recommend a good book on the subject of kundalini tantra, a great video showing a kundalini pranayama technique and/or recommend making love with someone with tantric experiences. <Dry orgasms are relatively frequent for me, but I don’t attend tantra workshops and I’m not in ‘the scene’, find it all a bit creepy to be honest. But I know I shouldn’t judge, just prefer to read books, watch Mantak Chia lectures and practice in private. Growth for me in the non judgment area needed.>

[Best book on Kundalini Tabtra I’ve read – https://www.amazon.co.uk/Bihar-School-of-Yoga-Kundalini/dp/8185787158/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1537125059&sr=8-3&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=kundalini+yoga+swami  ]

Political awareness awakening. This one’s hard cos there’s so much misinformation out there but eventually one should probably realise that most politicians are there for personal gain, most political decisions help the rich get richer and most wars are fought for profit and the reasons they give us are lies. It’s hard for me to view someone as a fully functioning human if they can’t see past the basic matrix of hypocrisy the politicians and mainstream media presents. I know reality is subjective, and it’s all perception (more on that later) and I know we shouldn’t judge. But one of my own areas to grow in is not judging people for believing politicians and newspapers. The lies have seemed so obvious for so long now it’s hard for me not to judge and get angry. I’m getting off the point.
<To what extent political awareness has anything to do with enlightenment in a broader sense is a debate you could have, but I’m inclined to agree with Michael Tsarion and Mark Passio, you cannot be compassionate and aware without sometimes experiencing righteous anger and all forms of government is a form of tyranny with an implied threat of violence>

[Tsarion on politics

Health food awakening. Pretty simple, you are what you eat. So natural and organic is ideal. But life is all about balance so I don’t judge processed food or meat eating, meat is natural and life is suffering but slaughterhouse’s cause unnecessary suffering.

Energy awareness awakening. This is on two levels, knowledge and experience. You can read about quantum physics and I have some good stuff to recommend on the subject. But I would honestly recommend playing with crystals in the bath <with or without shamanic assistance> and chi gung (also spelt Qi Gong which makes it difficult to search for sometimes). Chi gung is like a cross between Tai Chi and yoga and allows you to feel chi in and around your body. It’s basically circular movements and spiral movements with synchronized breathing. I live it and should do it every day but I am undisciplined. I’m working on that tho!

[Best chi gung vid I found online, starts with an explanation and then gives you a beautiful exercise to follow

 

Fractal multidimensional nature of reality awakening. Basically meditation on the nature of reality over time will deal with this one. And a good dose of Terrence Mckenna will deal with this one. I suspect a near death experience would too. I’ve had various glimpses of this breakdown of reality in various ways from Ayahuasca ceremonies to tantric sex dry orgasms. My clearest experience was via plant medicine but it might not have happened if I hadn’t had experiences of awakening in other ways before.

And finally – “Shadow work, emotional / psychological awakening”, as I say, it might be the most important one. This is a complex subject and although it relates to psychology it is in my opinion the most important spiritual work, and maybe the hardest and scariest. Someone can be a tantric master and an a-hole. Someone can be a vegan a-hole. Someone can be a yoga teaching a-hole. We can all be a-holes, I know I can. Shadow work and emotional growth is how to stop being an a-hole! 😂
It’s basically looking at your dark-side, your weaknesses, your fears which are generally rooted in self esteem issues and insecurities we’ve had since childhood. We usually hide these things behind a wall of either anxiety or bravado, either overtly express it with low self esteem and/or hide it behind a front of arrogance. Because when we see our insecurities and self esteem issues we find it hard to love ourselves. And when we hide from these things we defend it, defend the sadness with anger and have arguments with people we love so we don’t have to admit to ourselves how scared we are, scared that we might be lonely, scared that we might not be enough, scared that we might be judged negatively for our weaknesses and scared that those who are being judgmental might be right.
We stop being a-holes to ourselves and to others when we see these shadows, accept these shadows and LOVE OURSELVES ANYWAY. It’s like the EFT tapping techniques, “even though I am insert negative perception here I truly love and accept myself.”
For this work I would recommend Ayahuasca but at the risk of sounding like a normie or a Muggle conventional therapy helped alot, particularly hypnotherapy. And the work of Jamie Catto and Byron Katie. Again, each of these subjects I can recommend videos or books on. This last one I can recommend a Jamie Catto workshop or my hypnotherapist in Bristol, she’s awesome 😊
I have to add the Balanced View teaching, workshops and community to the list of positive influences on my awakening but the way it works cultivates a reliance on the community and the organisation that I am personally uncomfortable with and uncomfortable recommending. I say dip your toe in and use what works for you but some of my best friends are swimming in the deep end of it and seem fine ☺️

[Jamie Catto does workshops all over England, overseas and online in facing creative blocks, shadow work and relationships.

[Byron Katie and The Work (get to the root causes of your suffering and stop believing the stories you may have told yourself, powerful stuff

http://thework.com/en/do-work

One last thing! Perception and the fractal nature of reality. The paradox of all of this is that if the nature of reality is fractal there will always be more ways to awaken, there will always be another door to go through, each answer leads to more questions. So there is “nowhere to go and nothing to do” as Balanced View might say, we’re all already awake and all is already enlightened and illuminated by our awareness.
Okay, now I’m done.
__

With minor edits that’s almost exactly what I sent to my friend. I add for the sake of humility – I don’t meditate every day, I don’t do pranyama every day, I don’t eat strictly organic, and I don’t do Chi Gung every day. If I had as much discipline as I had obsession I would probably be happier, healthier and richer. But I don’t know if I’d be having as much fun.

Bliss plus joy equals now, be love x

GETTIN DOWN

(produced by Chemical Problem

Just gettin down…

Just gettin down…

Just gettin down…

 to get up!….

Sometimes you got to get down

…to get up!

Sometimes you got to get down

…to get up!

I might sit down…

I might get down…

but that won’t mean I’ve given up!

I might have me some me time…

But in the mean time…

I’m visualisin’ gettin up!

____

VERSE 1

Just gettin down to get up, lit it up, Hit the switch

lluminated the environment with lighting, now you’re enlightened.

Got inspiration from Bristol to Tasmania, Small World to Ozora (temporary Zions)

Shamballah to Boom Town, From London to Brighton,

From the Magpie to the Upper Florentine to Chi Wholefoods with Rainbo Lion

and from Matter to the Hive dons switched my mics on.

From supporting Chester P in Passing Clouds to Congo Natty in Lakota,

Zion Train in Trinity, I’m not sure which was doper.

Or performing in Stonehenge as a Bard among the Druids,

I kept it real, and kept it Hip-Hop with a reggae flow that’s fluid.

But when depression set in I didn’t feel like reppin

I kept indoors to release… the pain and the stressin

It’s all exalted, the curse was a blessin

time to write and time to heal, and I’ll come back with brand new weapons

the pen is mightier than the sword, and still ain’t no half steppin,

I’m full steppin to steppers dub with all my synchro bredrin!

__

CHORUS

Just gettin down…

Just gettin down…

Just gettin down…

 to get up!….

Sometimes you got to get down

…to get up!

Sometimes you got to get down

…to get up!

I might sit down…

I might get down…

but that won’t mean I’ve given up!

I might have me some me time…

But in the mean time…

I’m visualisin’ gettin up!

Just gettin down

Just gettin down

Just gettin down

 to get up!…. x2

Just because you aren’t making progress as fast as you think you should does not mean you’re not making progress. Keep going! Relax, but keep going. And shine.


 

Planet Earth

CHORUS

Planet Earth, …concrete on damaged turf

Where mans have burst… dams n worse for a fatter purse

Mother Earth… concrete on honoured turf…

I kiss the rose quartz on her alter… for her worth. x2

__

Standing Rock… hard… like an obelisk

I fell in the cauldron as a baby like Taliesin and Obelix

I boil pots of healing herbs, algae and plants  like Getafix

If you need chlorella, neem, or CBD see me to get a fix.

Prescipicise of global warming on the edge of mass flooding

Guess ya wish politicians and energy companies were less money grubbing

Earth goes through her cycles, Earth will be fine,

but is this humanity’s time to go… or time to shine?

Let’s change it all, we don’t need these chains at all, do they use their brains at all?

It’s unsustainable… if it’s not sustainable…

Sharing is caring, whatever’s available giving,

solar panels, car batteries, crops… Sustainable living.

Maybe we need to reassess priorities and pollution’s the penalty,

living in babylon… and music’s the remedy,

Babylons just a state of mind… and music’s the therapy…. maybe it’s high time for renewable energy.

Sweet Ting

VERSE 1:

Sweet Ting,  the epicentre of each other’s comfort zones,

ignoring the vibrations from our mobile phones,

when we’ve got to get up for work, missions or roam,

its hard, it’s oh so hard for me to leave the girl alone.

It’s difficult leaving her, I believe in her.

She’s a sweet ting like Stevia.

Reading up on Dzogchen buddha, cooking up the healthy food, huh?

She’s a sweet ting like coconut sugar,

she’s wise, full of good info and the best advice,

her wisdom’s a good addition to anyone’s life

She’s compassionate with X amount of empathy,

I’m so lucky to share with this angel Heaven sent to me.

___

CHORUS:

her smile is the sweetest ting in the world. I’m so unbelievably lucky my sweet tings this girl.

Her hug is the sweetest ting in the world…I’m so unbelievably lucky my sweet tings this girl.

Her kiss is the sweetest ting in the world. I’m so unbelievably lucky my sweet tings this girl.

Her love is…the sweetest ting  in the world. I’m so unbelievably lucky my sweet tings this girl.

___

outro?:

We walk through the orchard of delight

holding hands n picking apples for an apple pipe.

Her eyes are blue with gold… just like

…two circles of labradorite…

 

(Dungeons and Dragons)

electric blue illumination of clouds, wondering aloud, …and standing proud,

honest communication leads to open heart relation, …empathy over retaliation.

Competition’s not better than collaboration,

more beneficial than nationalism’s seeing just one nation

love expressed through the subtlest of gestures…

open-ended benefit, I’m existing for her pleasure.

open-ended benefit, open hearted,

open minded, not hard to find its always there,

it’s not something we find but something we remember,

remembering to remember with a tribe that’s tender as fierce,

yin energy receives but yang pierces,

weird it’s unfamiliar but at the same time home,

between each breath’s where the spirit guides roam… stop…. Pause. (16)

Breathe…

believe in yourself, admit your fears,

now your braver than you were, see what a love warrior shares

is not the spoils of killing but stories of will and willing

to love and learn, and build bridges we once chose to burn.

Like the saying, “anger is sadness’ bodyguard”.

Let go of the anger, let down your guard.

Don’t try and be soft just be…

Just be… don’t try and be hard. (8)

Ninjas vs Wizards… (edited)

It’s like wizards versus agents, ninjas vs angels,

yeah wizards and angels vs ninjas and agents,

ninjas vs wizards x4

It’s a little bit ridiculous isn’t it,… but from my perspective it’s just the way it is.

Wizards vs ninjas. Ninjas vs wizards. X2

MI5 and CIA’s agents and mercenary ninjas

overseas with an economic hitman’s hit list.

There’s no need to hide my face, look they’ve already seen my facebook,

we profiled ourselves in the empire’s database. Oops.

But Matrix agents and ninjas could never beat noble wizards,

who choose not to fight or compete – they’re just snowflakes in my blizzards.

Angels vs agents, ninjas vs wizards,

and in a way it’s racist if we blame it all on lizards..

We were never krusties, we were Rebel Alliance, ignorance blinds us to US and UKs Evil Empires, stealing oil, splitting atoms, abusing Jedi science, but the sins of our politicians never defined us.

Now I’m more like bendu, I see the illusion of light and dark, it’s all exalted benefit and I’m just playing my part. Is that light, good, positive? It’s all love from the start, so I laugh at nations and corporations while waving my staff.

like Darth Vader on E, or james bond, he’s

more like that Alchemist double o seven John Dee

but not at her majesty’s secret service unless her majesty’s mother earth it’s the rapper with the deep poems or poet with rap verses.

It’s like wizards versus agents, evil ninjas vs angels, yeah wizards and angels vs ninjas and agents,

ninjas vs wizards x4

It’s a little bit ridiculous isn’t it,.. but from ny perspective it’s just the way it is.

Wizards vs ninjas. Ninjas vs wizards. X2

BUt it’s the illusion of division, like war between religions… My ego saw separation where there isn’t… Everything is one and that’s a given… It’s your reflection you’ve forgiven… You’ve got what you need so look within.

I’m one with the Lord, and the Lord is with me

I’m one with the Goddess, and the Goddess is with me

I’m one with the Tao, and the Tao is with me

I’m one with the quantum force, and the force is with me…

 


BLISS + JOY = NOW

I’m the master of time and space…

I ‘m the joker, the King, the Queen and the ACE.

I’m abundance for freedom and power,

I’m bliss plus joy equals now is the hour.

I’m a Melchizedek advising kings, king of peace

I’m Elijah mocking spiritually impotent priests,

“you have no power over me” – ‘Labrynth’ –

I’m like David Bowies codpiece,

that means I’m the centre of attention, the centre of the bindu point z/ero point energy where peace releases tension.

I’m the master of time and space, one love intervention,

agent of good karma and good angels are my henchmen.

I am the master of time and space…

I am the joker, the King, the Queen and the ACE.

I am abundance for freedom and power,

positive, to spread love and wisdom to the community.

My super power’s increasing love and unity.

You wanna learn the skill? Chill, the workshop’s sold out.

I’ll put you on the waiting list, I got you, no doubt.

My super speed n super strength leaves my push bike worn out,

and lovers passed out on cloud 9 like “ah wow”.

My super hero mansion fosters love and community

Altruistic philanthropist with tree-houses between two trees.

Ewok village, some of the workshops in yurts shock

visitors to the love lodge not ready for nudity.

Psychedelic decor, it looks like Ozora

Meets Wayne Mansion, meets Cirque de Soleil on tour, huh?

Children teaching adults Bible, Koran and Torah

Taught to respect all cultures, know their rights and the laws, huh?

I don’t get excited by travelling to Ikea for tiles.

I love hugs, they make me happier than booze or drugs,
With middleclass ravers… or rudeboy shotta thugs.
I love meeting friends through miraculous serendipity,
linking team members through spectacular synchronicity.
I love watching cartoons, and spitting raps like harpoons
…I love star-gazing under dark moons.
Did I say love cartoons like Steven Universe? Thought he was truly cursed
til he mastered his powers… and he speaks the cutest words!
I love deep stories like detailed anime arcs.
I love sunny days under trees in the breeze in play parks.
I love performing, post-performance feedback’s heart-warming,
the next generation’s storming the frontiers of a new age dawning.
I love children, kids from Nepal to Filton.
I love sub bass. Look, I just love sharing poetry on facebook.

Young man – talk to older women if you want to learn

what to say to girls your age in your world

Wise women prefer good conversation,

But probably won’t say no to diamonds or pearls.

The Holy Grail to me was a job that doesn’t depress me.

Pays for the rent… but does’t over-stress me

or was it a Goddess as wise as she’s sexy

to love me, hug me and bless me, and vice versa, Thank you and Yes please!

The Holy Grail was to have both fun and prosperity

Some dreams come true, may I stay healthy n get more wealthy,

not to get on Instagram to take the arrogant selfies

but to help people like when I had nothing good people helped me.

Every little cell in my body is happy and well see

Each cell glowing with love, deep rooted like Elm trees,

Showered in love from the cosmos above us,

To shine light on road for man dem, gal dem, sisters and brothers.

 

I’m thinking about starting a religion. Again.

near-death-experience

 

I’m thinking about starting a religion. Again. (I didn’t start one before, I just thought about starting one before…)

When I thought about it before it was because I wanted something without dogma and rules but a framework for my spiritual preferences, namely a reverence for love and nature. Also because it may have allowed me and my loved ones exemptions to amoral laws. However I have been inspired again due to the fact that there is mounting scientific evidence that there is alot more to the universe than meets the eye, indeed there is mounting quantum evidence that there is alot more to reality than newtonian physics. There is also mounting anecdotal evidence from thousands of near death experiences that consciousness is not limited to the brain, and not limited to death even, as thousands of people have recorded memories of things they have observed while their bodies were ‘brain-dead’. On top of that the vast majority of the observations correlate, they are similar if not the same.

Is there an argument for a new religion and or spirituality and or cosmology to be created based on the scientific record of near death experiences or to a lesser extent the scientific record of past-life regression hypnotherapy? 
To the point where the evidence supports or contradicts mainstream science and/or mainstream religions?

Self Love – Life Paths, Careers, Pride, Money and Self Esteem

Not sure how to say what I want to say but I gotta say it.

I’ll start with balance. It’s all about balance. So the balance, the counter-point, rather than the main point is that some days I wish I’d earned more money in the past. Some days I wish I’d focussed more on a ‘viable career’ and less on my creative path. Some days. Not today.

From my point of view no path may be considered the only ‘right’ path, every path has different sacrifices for different gains and every person wants different gains according to their preferences. On top of that every day is different and even our preferences change.

But today I am proud of the path I have walked and the reasons why I have walked it.

Recently I had a conversation with a friend who took a different path. In a job he doesn’t liuke with people he doesn’t like much for years. They’re creative too, but similarly to the way I sacrificed having alot of money for the freedom to squat and not work full time for years he sacrificed having alot of freedom for the sake of having alot of money. When we spoke last he did not sound happy about it, and was telling me he’s proud of me that I kept ‘my soul’.

Now, remember the balance – there were days I slept in a warehouse with no central heating and only had food from skips. There were days when most of my friends were in India and I couldn’t afford to go anywhere. I did this so I could focus on my craft and focus on my creative outlet without relying on benefits from a system I despised. In fact it was one week living in a cold van without enough money to buy a burner or pay anyone to install it that I decided I am going to make alot more money and invest it in profitable positive ventures. (These days I live in a warm house in suburban London and I’m training for a career in Steiner school teaching while also learning about shares.)

Now there is a middle ground. It’s all about balance. There’s not much point having freedom to lie in nature if you haven’t got the abundance to keep warm, but there’s no point having the money if you haven’t got the time to enjoy it. But you rarely hear about the otherside. Society is geared towards money, money, money, and rarely do we stop to ask ‘why’?

It’s funny cos I recently had a training day for a market research job and walked out cos the managers were arrogant and childish. I had waves of feeling proud of myself for walking away and waves of feeling guilty. After that recent conversation, and a few others, I will no longer feel guilty about that. It is not my path.

It is rare that someone who really knows me, knows the life I have lived and the path I have walked can look me in the eye and tell me they are proud of me. The people on that list are short, most of them would take it for granted that they’re proud of me and the rest (my mum) wishes I went to law school. So today I am proud of who I am, what I’ve done and most importantly why I did it.

Unless someone that really knows you looks you in the eye and gives you the “you still have your soul” speech who knows, I could wonder forever if I made the right decisions and hopefully conclude that I could only have made those decisions and stop anxiously worrying about it.

So I’m glad my soul is intact and still visible, I’m glad that I have found more lucrative but not soul destroying paths to walk and I’m glad that my friend has the vision and awareness to see that he may be happier if he adjusts his priorities.

But to me no path is the ‘right’ path, every path has different sacrifices for different gains and each person is different. Every day is unique and we all adjust the balance according to the day and according to our preferences.

So I’m not better than anybody. But I’m not worse either. And I’m certainly not worse due to the income and lifestyle I used to have. But in a life that has been over-shadowed by insecurity I am taking this moment to affirm – I’m proud of who I am, I’m proud of what I’ve done and why I did it, and I’m proud of what I do and why I do it.

The Flower of Life, Coldplay, and consciousness

Someone’s gotta say it (in public, I’ve had this conversation privately twice now.) Anybody else a bit miffed about the fact that the sacred geometry symbol known as ‘the Flower of Life’ has gone fully mainstream on Coldplay’s new album cover? LOL I mean at least I haven’t got a tattoo, how many people are gonna get asked, “oh are you a Coldplay fan?” when someone sees their tattoo now? Like I said, someone had to say it. I remember when the only people putting the Flower of Life on T-shirts were either my friends or people I expected to soon be my friends.

I don’t have any particular problem with Coldplay (I liked their song Clocks until Radio 1 decided to play it a billion times a day, but I can’t blame Coldplay for that.) And sacred geometry has been mainstream but underground for centuries, it’s built into ancient Churches, they just didn’t tell you about it.

A few hack articles claimed Coldplay stole the image from one heavy metal album. Actually LOADS of albums have used the symbol over the years, even I had a variation of the flower of life on my dub and Hip-Hop album a year or two ago and countless psy trance albums have used it. It’s worth noting – mainly psy trance albums. They love it.

Beyond that – it’s ancient. Drunvalo Melchizedek takes the most credit for popularising it, with his two books The Flower of Life parts 1 and 2 which became popular in the 90s, and although the animated web series Spirit Science may have reached more people (I don’t know the figures) even they admit they got their ideas from Drunvalo. I dare say most of the ideas in that series seem to have come from Drunvalo’s two books.

Okay, so my tongue is firmly in my cheek. I say I’m a bit miffed but isn’t the mainstream arrival of the sacred geometry symbol a good thing? Well seeing as the whole point of sharing it in the festival scenes and psy trance scenes etc was apparently to penetrate the universal consciousness with a symbol that accelerates consciousness evolution (or something along those lines, don’t quote me) I would have to say it is definitely a good thing (if we’re gonna accept ‘good’ and ‘bad’ as a paradigm for the sake of conversation). Saying “I’m a bit miffed” is just me being paradoxically humble enough to admit that my ego enjoyed being part of a ‘secret’ club back in 2007. I see the flower of life as such a good metaphor for everything from overlapping social circles like groups of friends to overlapping cultures like squat culture, festival culture and circus culture, that I can only see benefit from more people having such a powerful image in their subconscious. So my higher self is happy and my ego feels satisfied that 10 years of putting it in the public consciousness helped lay the foundations for this… but my ego is still a tad miffed.

What has meditation on this symbol done for me? It’s given me different perceptions. This dimension / universe is fractal, meaning small parts are reflected in the patterns of large parts – like the small circles make one big circle which could also overlap to make even bigger circles. Or everything is macro-cosmic and micro-cosmic, meaning the big is mirrored in the small. For example you can see the flower of life as cell division or as galaxy division. Similarly molecules form as variations of another sacred geometry symbol which comes out of the flower of life known as metatrons cube, particularly the 5 platonic solids and understanding the fractal nature of the universe may help increase synchronicity as you mirror changes in society with changes in your life but none of that cosmic waffle can teach you how to get over heartbreak or not argue with your family – from my perspective now real spiritual growth is not in the light of the metaphysical, it’s in what some people call the shadows of the emotional. But the deeper the roots the bigger the tree (another fractal image), one complements the other. I’m still learning.

U R Infinite (You’re Infinite) Lyrics

[INTRO]

The present is infinite potential.

The future is – quote – “Infinite Possibilities” – end quote – Brian Visiondanz.

And within that you have the bonafide miracle of choice. We are infinite! What shall we co-create?

ONE LOVE

[VERSE 1]

Visualisation and rhyming affirmations with chi gung breathing

in combination means I’ll never need a hip-operation. IRATION!

I came and brought Hip-Hop to sacred stone circles,

and brough Hip-Hop a one-love vibration.

Who got the hot spit for hop hip, reverse?

Rejoice with the voice. We all made the choice to watch Earth rebirth.

What is it? The most mystic Hip-Hop from the most Hip-Hop mystic,

Earth changes? Then just evolve with it.

Watch my raps get even phatter. Our true power is infinite

… and I’ll prove it with lyrics kid.

Watch cash appear out of thin air, debts disappear, stacks get even fatter,

MANIFESTATION! True power’s unlimited.

Watch archetypes enlighten, even the rapper.

Dream time? Star-system Sirius – visit it.

Delirious with it, the furnace in the blizzard.

Part-time shaman, full-time wizard and hilarious with it! OH!

[CHORUS]

What is it? Melodic Trip-Hop, B-Boy, Hip-Hop mystic

Earth Changes? We just evolve with it.

YOU’RE INFINITE! We already know this bit.

Sew seeds of love and watch miracles grow with it.

All said and done if there’s a divine one we’ve all gotta be one with it,

Love wishes sunshine and sun kisses.

All said and done if there’s a divine one we’ve all gotta be one with it,

Earth wishes love, it’s the lushest gift.

love, it’s the lushest gift…

sunshine and sun kisses…

[BRIDGE {VIOLIN SOLO, Flavio Lopes}]

[VERSE 2]

Violet flame of transmutation. Self inflicted

violent pains need need explanation. Health restricted

by modern western environment? Nope.

Only restricted by your own belief, know you’re perfect, don’t just hope.

It’s been said disease is dis-Ease – so rest easy.

Find relief. Believe in yourself if you don’t believe me.

Indian Head massage to hugs to chi gung.

Sweat-lodge to sleeping bag, and sleep to freedom.

Letting go of attachments to future projections.

In the now, appreciation for inspiration from reflections.

We can do anything. ANYTHING.

Perform miracles. Healing. Manifesting.

Each cell of our body chants “ohm”. Lightning sending

healing from finger tips to nerve endings.

Straight spine for pure light to shine from crown to healing palm of the hand

Know love’s woth, passion of father sun meeting the calm of the land, Mother Earth.

MOTHER EARTH!

[CHORUS]

What is it? Melodic Trip-Hop, B-Boy, Hip-Hop mystic

Earth Changes? We just evolve with it.

YOU’RE INFINITE! We already know this bit.

Sew seeds of love and watch miracles grow with it.

All said and done if there’s a divine one we’ve all gotta be one with it,

Love wishes sunshine and sun kisses.

All said and done if there’s a divine one we’ve all gotta be one with it,

Earth wishes love, it’s the lushest gift.
