A deep inner response
RichHeart Music
There have been times through the presidential campaign that I found myself deeply moved by something resonating with my deepest desires for myself and humanity. Last night and today as I listened to comments on the radio by African Americans I cried for joy as I realized that the majority of the American voters had chosen an evolutionary step beyond fear into a place of cooperation, trust and - dare I say it - Love.  Thus we begin a period of healing in which we have the opportunity to embrace those who are seemingly different from us and learn to hear other people's viewpoints from a place of compassionate understanding - that same compassionate understanding with which we can hear our own inner turmoil.

Right after 9/11 I co-wrote a song which became part of the Camelot Reawakened CD. The song, entitled "Remember the Love that We Are" is about facing fear and through that process remembering the Love that is our true essence. As we express that essence we open the doorways for our dreams-of-the-heart to come true.

May your and my greatest fears be revealed as False Evidence Appearing Real and with compassion may we each find and express the Love That We Are.
