May All Beings Be Happy

In gratitude for this life and as a feast for your heart I wanted to share a song with you today, In These Arms, A Song For All Beings by Canadian born artist Jennifer Berezan, as it touches me on many levels.

The song invokes memories of my dear departed friend Sam who first introduced me to Berezan’s music. Sam was a shining example of what it is to Live your Dharma. Her indomitable spirit, wisdom and beauty were a gift to all who met her.

Whilst the essence of this track opens my heart to the sorrows of this world, it also shines a light on the immense joy, available to us all, as we awaken to the path of freedom and beauty in alignment with our sacred planet Earth and all of life.

“I cannot turn my eyes, I cannot count the cost

Of all that has been broken, all that has been lost

I cannot understand, the suffering that life brings

War and hate and hunger

And a million other things

When I’ve done all that I can

And I try to do my part

Let sorrow be a doorway

Into an open heart

And the light on the hills is full of mercy

The wind in the trees it comes to save me

This silence it will never desert me

I long to hold the whole world in these arms

May all beings be happy

May all beings be safe

May all beings everywhere be free.”

My thanks to Jennifer Berezan for all that she gifts to this world.
