Sound or Silence Choice

Instrument: Tempo – Seagull Excursion Folk Acoustic Guitar

1. I was born in the silence,
Just another day to most.
But I was born in a crashing din
To the ones that held me close.

2. Oh to sleep like a baby
In a world of loving kind.
But many fight when the night is dark,
In a restless state of mind.

3. Some believe in each other
And encourage all they do.
Others try to stop different
Expressions of the Truth.

Either way we leave a mark
With our sound or silence choice.

O from the silence and the sound,
Some effect will come around.
Any time and any place,
We all have a choice to make.
We can be a gentle spark
Or a yelling, jarring voice.
Either way we leave a mark
With our sound or silence choice.

The Infinite in You

Instrument: Brio – Red Cedar Concert Ukulele

1. I am, I was, I will be.
I am, I was, I will be.
I am, I was, I will be
The Infinite in you.

2. I am Alpha and Omega. (3x)
The Infinite in you.

3. I am eternal life. (3x)
The Infinite in you.

4. I am the love that leads you. (3x)
The Infinite in you.

5. I am, I was, I will be.
I am Alpha and Omega.
I am eternal life,
The Infinite in you.

I am the love that leads you,
The Infinite in you.

And I am opposed to nothing,
For I am in all things.
I am the breath that gives you life
And hope that gives you wings!

Celebrating Dr. Paul Leon Masters

The voice of inspiration is expressed strongly through some people. It may not be loud – well, maybe occasionally – but Truth makes ready souls with ears to hear, sit up and pay attention.

For more than half a century, Dr. Masters was conscious, aware, and connected enough to share this divine, inspired voice with his students and the public alike. As Founder of International Metaphysical Ministry and its University System, Dr. Masters blazed the trail for mystics and Metaphysicians all over the world. Some of us practice traditionally, as ministers with church buildings and congregations. Others, like myself, practice less traditionally, have no physical church and instead let inspiration flow from the church-within, through music, art, writing, athletics, television acting, and a myriad of other careers, hobbies, and vocations. No matter the shape of our practice, cultural background, religious beliefs, or other personal attributes, Dr. Masters paved the way and founded the organization that would grant us ordination and degrees, in short, so that we are recognized and respected for our accumulated knowledge, research, works, and ministries.

The International Metaphysical Ministry, University of Metaphysics, and University of Sedona carry on, as Dr. Masters desired, and continue his inspired legacy of Metaphysical teachings. We may take time to mourn his physical passing. But let us take more time to thank the God-Presence, Infinite and Eternal, that inspires and expresses in each of us. May each of us who feel a calling, answer it with as much dedication, commitment, and God-centered Love as Dr. Masters did throughout his lifetime!

Blessings and gratitude to the staff, graduates, students, and all who resonate with Metaphysical ministry in all its forms! Thank you for your service and continued commitment to the Ministry Dr. Masters brought us, that it may serve its purpose and be a positive influence in many more lives! And that each student and graduate, past, present, and potential, may carry the Light of Truth in his or her heart and practice by the Grace of God and indwelling of Christ Consciousness and the Holy Spirit – Holy Breath – that animates every soul!

And so it is!

Breathe – Meditation Song

Instrument: Tempo – Seagull Excursion Folk Acoustic Guitar

1. The flow of air
Made of love, peace, and care,
It is your breath of life,
And through all of your time,
God is there,
In the flow of air.

2. And as you breathe,
You let go and receive,
All the gifts freely given,
For on Earth as in Heaven,
Spirit leads
Every breath you breathe.

So, exhale the things you don’t need,
And inhale the gifts you receive!
Breathe! Breathe!

3. We ebb and flow
In the Spirit that knows.
We are all in His Mind,
Where we seek and we find
God is so
As we ebb and flow.

Breathe! Breathe!

Hail Mary

A mystical nod to the virgin Mary within each of us – that part of us that is complete unto itself and untouched by human experiences.

Hail Mary, hail! Once blessed in the name of God; twice blessed in the name of Holy Breath; thrice blessed in the name of Christ; for you are worthy, and will bear a son who shall be called Immanuel.
–Aquarian Gospel 2:15

Instrument: Brio – Red Cedar Concert Ukulele

Hail Mary! You are worthy.
Bless’ed are you, precious one,
In the name of God the father,
Holy Breath, and Christ the son.

1. Virgin Mary, blameless one,
You will bear a saving son.
For the word within you dwells;
God with us, Immanuel.

2. All of those who walk in Light
Bear the Savior called the Christ.
Mary is the willing soul
Where the birth of Christ unfolds.

Sound Healing Instruments – A Mystical View

The harp, didgeridoo, singing bowls, tuning forks, and frame drums are often used in sound healing sessions. They have elements, frequencies, properties, and resonances that lend themselves to physical healing work. These instruments are relatively easy to acquire; yet a kind of magical, mystical power still seems to surround them.

Some of the practitioners I respect and admire most are sound healers and musicians – and you probably know I’m a musician myself. However, the truth comes out, despite the opinions and illusions held by teachers, gurus, and practitioners alike. And in truth, so-called sound healing instruments have no more power than the piano or acoustic guitar languishing in the corner of your living room!

If there is any power at all, it is only that those instruments are enjoyed and played by someone, and used for a positive purpose. But mystical power? No, God alone is the Presence and Power that heals! Someone playing a didgeridoo may be a healing channel. This simply means doing what anyone else would do to experience God: Getting the personal ego out of the way so that God-Power can flow through you, uncolored by human thoughts and untouched by human experiences. The didgeridoo, and you for that matter, are instruments – instruments of the Divine that already knows and plays all music.

Instruments, musical and otherwise, exist as parts of the eternal Whole. They exist so that we, in our individual manifestations of God, can hear and experience oneness in and through all ways. Just as some experience God by attending religious services and others on a nature walk, people can experience God through playing any musical instrument – or no instrument at all.

The power is in the resonance. I.e. God allows us to resonate with, or be drawn to, different instruments. We don’t all play didgeridoo, and indeed some people can’t bear to listen to one being played. However, science has documented its healing benefits. So, is it a healing instrument? For some people, yes.

But it’s just as likely that a teenage student, for instance, will experience emotional healing while playing a cheap acoustic guitar and writing songs. Healing comes in all shapes, forms, and through all instruments. Healing has one Source, God; and many paths. Music is only one modality. It may be healing to you, or you may think, “That’s a nice song,” and move on.

In the final analysis, God is all there is. All healing, power, and music is God’s, and we have the opportunity to participate in the healing, creative experience. Some of us do, with whichever instruments we are drawn to, by God’s guidance. Others choose to listen. Still other people seem not to respond to music. Yet God is at work, whether responses are documented or left in the ether.

If you are interested in sound healing, you’re entering an amazing, emerging field that is gaining scientific acceptance. But, with science comes analysis and much intellectual exercise. Exercise your spiritual gifts in this and all things, not just your mental and physical faculties. Let God guide your choice of instrument, practices, teachers, and technique. Playing an instrument, and healing work as well, is a physical experience. But it is always improved by a spiritual foundation.

Jesus said, “Seek first the Kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you.” May you seek the inner guidance for self-healing, and if you are called to be a healing channel for others, may you remain open to God Consciousness flowing through you always!

What You Write in Your Song

In setting your intentions and goals for 2016, may they be God-sent and God-guided! And may your life song:

Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands.

Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing.

Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.
–Psalm 100 (KJV)

What You Write in Your Song – Lyrics

Instrument: Tempo – Seagull Excursion Folk Acoustic Guitar

1. We feel things,
And we’re not afraid to show them.
We let ourselves expose them
In hopes of being freed.
But real things,
They still remain inside us
And always do provide us
With what we truly need.

2. We think things,
And we speak our own opinions.
We try to have dominion
And make everyone agree.
But in sync things,
By the Light of all creation,
We are one eternal nation,
Under God, the King of kings.
Refrain: (Twice)

And your legacy lives on
With each note in your song.
And when you’re laid to rest,
The words that you express
Keep sounding like a ripple or a gong.
So be aware what you write in your song.
Be aware what you write in your song.
