about

A collection of songs, in diverse styles such as Latin, World, New Age, Pop, Middle Eastern and a little Rock. The music depicts the soul's desire to transcend the limits of the material world and to soar in the spiritual realm. This album reflects a wider ranger of my musical influences and includes original lyrics for most of the songs.

Track Name: Eternal Beloved
Alone in the darkness of desolation
Where is the light of Thy love
My longing hands are lifted to heaven
Raise me up to the heavens above

O My beloved, my desire
O spirit of the worlds
The warmth of your love is wind to my fire
A priceless gift, a precious pearl

Consumed in the fire of separation
Send down the rain of thy grace
Awaiting the breezes of confirmation
Anticipating that wondrous place

O my beloved, my desire
O spirit of the worlds
Thy presence lifts me higher and higher
A priceless gift, a precious pearl
Track Name: A Thought of Peace
When a thought of war comes, oppose it by a stronger thought of peace. A thought of hatred must be destroyed by a more powerful thought of love.

(Abdu'l-Baha, Paris Talks, p. 29)
Track Name: Persecution
Persecution

They dedicated their lives to a noble purpose
Innocent victims, Imprisoned for their beliefs
Their suffering knew no bounds
Only comforted by prayerful sounds

Their children suffer the same fate
Subjected to an endless hate
Denied basic human rights
Yet guided by a greater light

Why do you think you can stop the world from knowing
Prevent the truth from showing
You can't block the sun from shining

Pressured to recant their faith
Their Holy Places destroyed,
Their graves unearthed, no place to bury their dead
Denied the right for education
Riddled with false accusations

Why do you think you can stop the world from knowing
Prevent the truth from showing
You can't block the sun from shining

You can burn their homes but not their spirits
Seize their land but not their souls

Why do you think you can stop the world from knowing
Prevent the truth from showing
You can't block the sun from shining

Why do you think you can block the sun
You can't stop us from shining
Seize our land but not our souls

Why.... do you think you can stop the world from knowing
Prevent the truth from showing
