  • There's nothing you can do
    that can't be done
    Nothing you can sing
    that can't be sung
    Nothing you can say
    but you can learn to play the game
    It's easy.
    All you need is love
    John Lennon

    There is a time when there are no words
    a time when all that could be said has been said
    a time when our silence holds us in its arms

    There is a time when there are no songs
    a time when all songs have become One Song
    a time when you become the music itself

    There is a time when I would speak to you
    a time when I might try to speak in words
    but words slip, crack, slide and lose all meaning

    There is a time when the complexity of life
    simply falls away, and leaves us in Light
    and in that Light we recognize each other.

    There is a time when all our stories
    become the one Great Story. We disappear,
    transcend, and all that is left is Love.
