It’s A Gift: song of being thankful for life

“Breath is the bridge which connects life to consciousness, which unites your body to your thoughts. Whenever your mind becomes scattered, use your breath as the means to take hold of your mind again.” ~Zen Master Thích Nhất Hạnh

Offering simple thanks for this gift of life
My life, your life, all life,
burst forward out of nowhere
in the form of
lyrics and a tune.
A song expressed
through the breath of my heart.
May the joy from which it manifest
water seeds of joy in you.
(lyrics below)

I am
the most important, special, wonderful person
in the universe
yeh, ya
just like everyone else
I looked around
it’s what I found

You are
the most important, special, wonderful person
in the universe
yeh, ya
just like everyone else
Look around
tell me what you found

It’s a gift
being here now
exploring life’s wonders
both inside and out
outside and in.

You may feel lonely
but are you really alone?

We are
the most important, special, wonderful people
in the universe
yeh, ya
just like everything else
I looked around
this is what I found

It’s a gift
being here now
exploring life’s wonders
both inside and out
outside and in.

It’s wonderful.

    That was a delight… loved the initial image on top, Deer Park? there is one on the Olympic Peninsula but I don’t remember that spot? the imagery in your video was fun, carried me to all sorts of places I want to visit. love the lyrics, too
