Nonduality Highlights: Issue #3245, Saturday, August 2, 2008, Editor: Mark



Editor's note: I seem to be in a musical mood this evening, so here are some lyrics... (dual or nondual, take your pick)




She called me on the phone
She could tell by the sound of my voice
I was sitting home all alone
She said to me in a whispering tone:
Do you believe?
Do you believe in liberation?
Can you understand liberation?
Are you afraid of liberation?
I am afraid of liberation
I admit I'm afraid

She sent me a letter
I got it in the mail
I broke the seal
And I read that letter
She had beautiful handwriting
She had a beautiful hand
She had beautiful handwriting
And this is what I read:
Do you believe in liberation?
Can you understand liberation?
Are you afraid of liberation?
I am afraid of liberation
I admit I'm afraid

She saw me on the street
She tugged at my shirtsleeve
She handed me a leaflet
I put it in my pocket
I was doing my laundry
I checked my pocket
I produced the leaflet
Which I proceeded to read
Do you believe in liberation?
Can you understand liberation?
Are you afraid of liberation?
I am afraid f liberation
I admit I'm afraid

She knocked on my front door
Got me out of bed
I turned on my porch light
I looked out my peep hole
I seen her starting to jerk
I seen her starting to shake
I seen her about to spill over
When she started to speak she said:
Do you believe?

- Lungfish




When you were a child, you were a tomboy
Gimme soul satisfaction
Way back in shady lane
Do you remember darlin'?
And it's the woman in you, and it's the woman in you
Gimme soul satisfaction
And it takes the child in you to know
The woman an' you are one

We're goin' out in the country to get down to the real soul,
I mean the real soul, people,
We're goin' out in the country, get down to the real soul
We're gettin' out to the west coast
Shining our light into the days of bloomin' wonder
Goin' as much with the river as not, as not, yeah, yeah
An' I'm goin' as much with the river as not
Yeah, yeah, right, yeah

Blake and the Eternals oh standin' with the Sisters of Mercy
Looking for the Veedon Fleece, yeah
William Blake and the Eternals oh standin' with the Sisters of Mercy
Looking for the Veedon Fleece, yeah
You don't pull no punches, but you don't push the river
You don't pull no punches, and you don't push the river
You don't pull n punches, and you don't push the river, no, no
Goin' as much with the river as not

We're goin' out in the West, down to the cathedrals
We're goin' out in the West (alright), down to the beaches
And the Sisters of Mercy, behind the sun
Oh behind the sun

And William Blake and the Sisters of Mercy looking for the Veedon Fleece,
Yeah
You don't pull no punches, goin' west, goin' as much with the river as not
With the river as not, with the river as not, goin' as much,
Goin' as much with the river as not, no, ah
You don't pull no punches, and you don't push the river, no
You don't pull no punches, but you don't push the river, no
You don't pull no punches, but you don't push the river, no
You don't pull no punches, but you don't push the river

And we was contemplating Baba, William Blake and the Eternals
Goin' down to the Sisters of Mercy
Looking for the Veedon Fleece
Looking for the Veedon Fleece
Looking for the Veedon Fleece
Looking for theVeedon Fleece

You don't pull no punches, but ya, you don't push the river
You don't pull no punches, but ya, you don't push the river, no
You don't pull no punches, but ya, you don't push the river
You don't push the river, you don't push the river

- Van Morrison




Did you get it? Did you get it?
You're just another fish in the sea, yeah
Did you get it? Did you get it?
You gotta get it right
And you get it jerked when you get it right
When you get it, you won't forget it
When you get it, you won't regret it
When you get it you'll start to see
Your just the same as me

You call, you grow
You know, you blow
You fall, to the wall
You laugh

Now you know it's good to be back here in the world again
Don't you know it's great to be in love with a girl again?
Down here in the battlefield of time
Don't get lost to reason or rhyme
Really ought to get it together again
Wouldn't you like to fly? Wouldn't you like to know why?

You die, you try
To fly when you're high
You're low, you know
You grow to flow
To laugh in the path
But you fall
You get it after all

- Gong




Into the groove, where we lose ourselves just to find who we are
into the groove, where we get to fly but we need not see the sky
into the groove, where we escape from the surface of what we've become
into the groove, come for the ride
Take the plunge, soak it up like a sponge
don't be afraid of tonight, everything is gonna be alright
take the plunge, soak me up like a sponge
don't be afraid of the light, everything is gonna be just fine

Into the groove, where love grows to new heights
into the groove, where the sun disappears but a light still shines
into the groove, surrounded by the waters of desire, yeah
into the groove, come for the ride

Catch the wave, free the slave, emancipate your mind
cause nothing men do can change this time
catch the wave (I'm gonna catch the wave), and free your slave (I'm gonna free my slave)
emancipate your mind, hey nothin' they do can change this time

Light it up

Into the groove, where we lose ourselves ust to find who we are
into the groove, where we get to fly but we need not see the sky
into the groove, where we escape from the surface of what we've become
into the groove, come for the ride
Yeah, come for the ride

- Ziggy Marley




Amazing grace! How sweet the sound, that saved a wretch like me
I once was lost, but now I'm found, was blind, but now I see

`Twas grace that taught my heart to fear, and grace my fears relieved
How precious did that grace appear the hour I first believed

Through many dangers, toils and snares I have already come
`Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far, and grace will lead me home

The Lord has promised good to me; His word my hope secures
He will my shield and portion be as long as life endures

Yes, when this flesh and heart shall fail, and mortal life shall cease
I shall possess, within the veil, a life of joy and peace

The earth shall soon dissolve like snow, the sun forbear to shine
But God, who called me here below, will be forever mine

When we've been there ten thousands years, bright shining as the sun
We've no less days to sing God's praise than when we'd first begun

- John Newton




The birds they sang
at the break of day
Start again
I heard them say
Don't dwell on what
has passed away
or what is yet to be.
Ah the wars they will
be fought again
The holy dove
She will be caught again
bought and sold
and bought again
the dove is never free.

Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack in everything
That's how the light gets in.

We asked for signs
the signs were sent:
the birth betrayed
the marriage spent
Yeah the widowhood
of every government --
signs for all to see.

I can't run no more
with that lawless crowd
while the killers in high places
say their prayers out loud.
But they've summoned, they've summoned up
a thundercloud
and they're going to hear from me.

Ring the bells that still can ring ...

You can add up the parts
but you won't have the sum
You can strike up the march,
there is o drum
Every heart, eve
ry heart to love will com
e but like a refugee.

Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack, a crack in everything
That's how the light gets in.

Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack, a crack in everything
That's how the light gets in.
That's how the light gets in.
That's how the light gets in.

-Leonard Cohen




If you feel like singing a song
And you want other people to sing along
Just sing what you feel
Don't let anyone say it's wrong

And if you're trying to paint a picture
But you're not sure which colors belong
Just paint what you see
Don't let anyone say it's wrong

And if you're strung out like a kite
Or stung awake in the night
It's alright to be frightened

When there's a light (what light)
There's a light (one light)
There's a light (white light)
Inside of you

If you think you might need somebody
To pick you up when you drag
Don't loose sight of yourself
Don't let anyone change your bag

And if the whole world's singing your songs
And all of your paintings have been hung
Just remember what was yours is everyone's from now on
And that's not wrong or right
But you can struggle with it all you like
You'll only get uptight

Because there's a light (what light)
There's a light (one light)
There's a light(white light)
There's a light (what light)
There's a light (one light)
There's a light (white light)
There's a light (what light)
There's a light (one light)
There's a light (white light)
There's a light (what light)
There's a light (one light)
There's a light (white light)
Inside of you

- Jeff  Tweedy (Wilco)
