Taking care of the Earth, our planet's health, is sacred. The earth gives us all life, no matter who we are, our culture or religion.
To protect and nurture the planet, just as we care and nurture our own bodies and selves, is to honor and respect ourselves. Unfortunately, we have been taught through the culture and the corporate world that we are separate.
The markets of industry use every tool at their disposal to consciously and subconsciously separate us from our connection with nature. I have been told that we are already too late in making dramatic changes in order to turn the health of the environment around; however, even if it is so, I refuse to disrespect our Mother Earth, and I continue, out of choice, to be conscious of what I do to assist and honor and love her for as long as I live.
Once we acknowledge and respect the earth as a living organism, on which we are extensions of individuality, we can become one with it. The grass, plants, trees, flowers and meadow, its mountains, valleys and hills form its outer body... its streams, lakes, rivers, seas and even the oil found in the ground, are its life blood, providing nourishment to itself... the volcanos are its creative aspect, birthing itself, and the air, its breathe.. We are made and have our being out of the content of the earth. It is so easy to relate to this oneness as a result of our connectedness to nature and its beauty. The invisible umbilical cord continues to affect our emotions and our lives.
As a musician, myself, you may ask yourself, how does what I am saying have anything to do with music? It has every connection. The essence of all things is vibration. Vibration is sound, sound is the "umbilical chord" of creation, it is the "music of the spheres". The next time you are outside your back or front door, or an opened window, you can hear in the nearness, in the distance, the vibrations of nature communicating and living around you. Listen to the voices. Be in that moment with what you can hear... the birds singing, the sound of the wind as it blows through the trees, the fragrance of the flowers, the warmth of the sun, the buzzing of a bee...
With the recent release of CD, Yalermai, my hope is that it assists in creating an environment for you, on whatever level you need to expand or shift your energy, and in whatever your circumstance you find yourself, you will receive some solitude, peace, encouragement, joy and oneness. It is my gift to the sacred aspects of our existence, via the individuals, events, and experiences out of which would become sound....
We can personally create and change ourselves and our surroundings. We have a choice to be conscious and aware if we desire consciousness and awareness. This can be experienced by every civilization and culture living on this planet. What a different and more fulfilling environment we as individuals would experience and the positive effects upon planet Earth would also experience.
All of life comes to us with more peace, joy and glory... (access consciousness)
