Nothing Else Matters

Music video by Lucie Silvas performing Nothing Else Matters

Lyrics:
So close no matter how far
Couldn’t be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
And nothing else matters

Never opened myself this way
Life is ours, we live it our way
All these words I don’t just say
And nothing else matters

Trust I seek and I find in you
Every day for us something new
Open mind for a different view
And nothing else matters

Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
But I know

So close no matter how far
Couldn’t be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
And nothing else matters

Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
But I know

Never opened myself this way
Life is ours, we live it our way
All these words I don’t just say
And nothing else matters

Trust I seek and I find in you
Every day for us something new
Open mind for a different view
And nothing else matters

Never cared for what they say
Never cared for games they play
Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
And I know

So close no matter how far
Couldn’t be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
No nothing else matters

A Whisper of Promise

Image

“Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you. When something wonderful happens, you can’t wait to tell them about it, knowing they will share in your excitement. They are not embarrassed to cry with you when you are hurting or laugh with you when you make a fool of yourself. Never do they hurt your feelings or make you feel like you are not good enough, but rather they build you up and show you the things about yourself that make you special and even beautiful. There is never any pressure, jealousy or competition but only a quiet calmness when they are around. You can be yourself and not worry about what they will think of you because they love you for who you are. The things that seem insignificant to most people such as a note, song or walk become invaluable treasures kept safe in your heart to cherish forever. Memories of your childhood come back and are so clear and vivid it’s like being young again. Colours seem brighter and more brilliant. Laughter seems part of daily life where before it was infrequent or didn’t exist at all. A phone call or two during the day helps to get you through a long day’s work and always brings a smile to your face. In their presence, there’s no need for continuous conversation, but you find you’re quite content in just having them nearby. Things that never interested you before become fascinating because you know they are important to this person who is so special to you. You think of this person on every occasion and in everything you do. Simple things bring them to mind like a pale blue sky, gentle wind or even a storm cloud on the horizon. You open your heart knowing that there’s a chance it may be broken one day and in opening your heart, you experience a love and joy that you never dreamed possible. You find that being vulnerable is the only way to allow your heart to feel true pleasure that’s so real it scares you. You find strength in knowing you have a true friend and possibly a soul mate who will remain loyal to the end. Life seems completely different, exciting and worthwhile. Your only hope and security is in knowing that they are a part of your life.”

Between Us

Written and performed by: Peter Bradley Adams

Lyrics:

Hey stranger or may I call you my own
I know I don’t know you, but there’s somewhere I’ve seen you before
Whatever your name is, whatever you do
There’s nothing between us I’m willing to lose

Just call me if ever our paths may collide
I want you to call me under these darkened sky’s
Whoever you love, whoever you kiss
The wandering between us I’m willing to miss

Now I’m drifting out over deep oceans
And the tide won’t take me back in
And these desperate nights I’ll call you again and again

There’s comfort, comfort in things we believe
Other than danger, wanting the things I can’t see

Wherever you live now, wherever you walk
There’s distance between us I’m willing to cross
Now I’m drifting out over deep oceans
And the tide won’t take me back in
And these desperate nights I’ll call you again and again

Now I’m drifting out over deep oceans
And the tide won’t take me back in
And these desperate nights I’ll call you again and again

Hey stranger or may I call you my own
I know I don’t know you, but there’s somewhere I’ve seen you before.

My Heart

“My heart, aflame in love, set afire every heart that came in touch with it. My heart has been rent and joined again. My heart has been broken and again made whole. My heart has been wounded and healed again. A thousand deaths my heart has died, and thanks be to love, it lives yet. I went through hell and saw there love’s raging fire, and I entered heaven illumined with the light of love.”   ~Hazrat Inayat Khan~

I Will Find You

Performed by the Irish band, Clannad

Lyrics:

Hope is your survival
A captive path I lead

No matter where you go
I will find you
If it takes a long long time
No matter where you go
I will find you
If it takes a thousand years

(mohican)
Nachgochema
Anetaha
Anachemowagan

No matter where you go
I will find you
In the place with no frontiers
No matter where you go
I will find you
If it takes a thousand years

(cherokee)
Hale wú yu ga I sv
Do na dio sv i
Wi ja lo sv
Ha le wú yu
Do na dlo sv

No matter where you go
I will find you
If it takes a long long time
No matter where you go
I will find you
If it takes a thousand years

No matter where you go
I will find you
In the place with no frontiers
No matter where you go
I will find you
If it takes a thousand years

No matter where you go
I will find you

Divine Nectar

ImageI have lain fallow

From one lifetime

To the next…

And the next

Held by the wild, wise Crone

Now as I AM

I spring forth

From a cracked, brittle shell

Rising from earth riches

Into your loving embrace

Of light and rain

Rejoicing to Be

Love, incarnate

Twin Souls, One flame

Within a womb

Of turquoise lavender

Traveling the birth canal

Born into existence

A reunion of soul embers

Into purifying fires

Of Divine Soul Essence.
