Default Songs Of Inspiration

If you have any songs that inspired you and/or renewed your faith and trust in the goodness of this life to share, please do it here. To get the ball rolling, here is my first offering:

I Believe
I believe for every drop of rain that falls,
A flower grows,
I believe that somewhere in the darkest night,
A candle glows.
I believe for everyone who goes astray,
Someone will come to show the way.
I believe,
I believe.

I believe above the storm the smallest prayer,
Will still be heard.
I believe that someone in the great somewhere,
Hears every word.
Every time I hear a new born baby cry,
Or touch a leaf or see the sky.
Then I know why,
I believe.

Every time I hear a new born baby cry,
Or touch a leaf or see the sky.
Then I know why,
I believe.

Erwin Drake

Default Full Of Wonder

Full Of Wonder
I can beat the night, I’m not afraid of thunder
I am full of light, I am full of wonder

Woah, oh I came falling under
Woah, oh I am full of wonder

Though our feet might ache, the world’s upon our shoulders
No way we goin’ break, ‘cos we are full of wonder

Woah, oh we came falling under
Woah, oh we are full of wonder

This light is contagious, go, go tell your neighbours
Just reach out and pass it on
This light is contagious, go, go tell your neighbours
Just reach out and pass it on ooh yeah
This light is contagious, go, go tell your neighbours
Just reach out and pass it on ooh yeah
This light is contagious, go, go tell your neighbours
Just reach out and pass it on yeah

Woah, oh we came falling under
Woah, oh we are full of wonder

When everything feels wrong, and darkness falls upon you
Just try sing along, this is a message from Cabana
If your heart turns blue, I want you to remember
This song is for you, and you are full of wonder

Woah, oh we came falling under
Woah, oh we are full of wonder

Default The Moon Is A Kite

The Moon Is A Kite
I know you think this world is too dark to even dream in colour,
But I’ve seen flowers bloom at midnight
And kites fly in gray skies.
They were close to looking like the Sunrise,
And sometimes it takes the most wounded wings,
The most broken things
To notice how strong the breeze is
And how precious the flight.

‘The Moon is a Kite’
Andrea Gibson

Default Love At First Sight

Some enchanted evening
You may see a stranger,
you may see a stranger
Across a crowded room
And somehow you know,
You know even then
That somewhere you'll see her
Again and again.

‘South Pacific’
Rodgers & Hammerstein

From ‘Love At First Sight’

Let It Be
When I find myself in times of trouble, Mother Mary comes to me,
Speaking words of wisdom: ‘Let it be.’
And in my hour of darkness she is standing right in front of me
Speaking words of wisdom: ‘Let it be,
Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be’;
Whisper words of wisdom: ‘Let it be.

And when the broken hearted people living in the world agree,
There will be an answer, let it be.
For though they may be parted, there is still a chance that they will see
There will be an answer, let it be;
Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be;
There will be an answer, let it be …
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be;
Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be;
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be.

And when the night is cloudy, there is still a light that shines on me;
Shine until tomorrow, let it be.
I wake up to the sound of music, Mother Mary comforts me
Speaking words of wisdom: ‘Let it be …
There will be an answer, let it be;
Let it be, let it be, let it be, yeah, let it be.
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be.

And during times of trouble, her voice of wisdom comes to me:
‘Look for the lesson; be patient;
Let it be.’

Paul McCartney

I Made It Through The Rain

We dreamers have our ways
Of facing rainy days
And somehow we survive
We keep the feelings warm
Protect them from the storm
Until our time arrives
Then one day the sun appears
And we come shining through those lonely years

I made it through the rain
I kept my world protected
I made it through the rain
I kept my point of view
I made it through the rain
And found myself respected
By the others who
Got rained on too
And made it through

When friends are hard to find
And life seems so unkind
Sometimes you feel so afraid
Just aim beyond the clouds
And rise above the crowds
And start your own parade

'Cause when I chased my fears away
That's when I knew that I could finally say:

I made it through the rain
I kept my world protected
I made it through the rain
I kept my point of view
I made it through the rain
And found myself respected
By the others who
Got rained on too
And made it through

Barry Manilow

Make me a channel of Your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me bring Your love,
Where there is injury, Your pardon,
And where there’s doubt, true faith in You.

Make me a channel of Your peace.
Where there’s despair in life,
Let me bring hope
Where there is darkness, only light
And where there’s sadness, ever joy.

Make me a channel of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me bring Your love.
Where there is injury, Your pardon
And where there’s doubt, true faith in You.

It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
In giving to all people that we receive
And in dying that we are born,
To Eternal life.

O Master, grant that I may not seek
So much to be consoled as to console,
To be understood as to understand and
To be loved as to love with all my heart and soul.

St. Francis of Assisi

From ‘Healers and Healing’

A May Celebration Of The Great Mother Of All Life


Bring flowers of the rarest,
Bring blossoms the fairest,
From garden and woodland and hillside and dale.
Our full hearts are swelling,
Our glad voices telling
The praise of the loveliest flower of the vale.

Great Mother, we crown thee with blossoms today,
Queen of the Angels and Queen of the May.
Great Mother, we crown thee with blossoms today,
Queen of the Angels and Queen of the May,

Their lady they name thee,
Their mistress proclaim thee,
Oh, grant that Thy children on Earth be as true,
As long as the bowers
Are radiant with flowers,
As long as the azure shall keep its bright hue.

Great Mother, we crown thee with blossoms today,
Queen of the Angels and Queen of the May,
Great Mother, we crown thee with blossoms today,
Queen of the Angels and Queen of the May,

Sing gaily in chorus,
The bright angels o’er us
Re-echo the strains we begin upon Earth.
Their harps are repeating
The notes of our greeting,
For Mother you are the cause of our mirth.

This hymn is sung during the ‘May Crowning’ of a statue of Mary in May.
Mary is a symbolism for the Great Mother of all life.

The Dance Of The Flowers

At the beginning of May the Sun moves through earthy and sensuous Taurus. It is a time that presents us and our world with a dramatic change of tempo. After the breakneck speed and impatience of Mars in Aries, in Taurus Venus enters the main stage. In this Earth sign the planet finds some of its finest feminine expressions and brings to souls born into it, and also to everybody else at this time of the year, a wonderful sense of enjoyment and appreciation of the good things in life. Slowly and with a deliberately measured pace, Earth presents herself as the beautiful young bride. Bedecked with a profusion of flowers, blossoms and new greenery as far as the eye can see, she reveals to us the freshness of as yet unspoilt youth.

Sun in Aries represents the renewed betrothal of Mother Earth and Father Sun. But when the Sun moves through Taurus her wedding feast is celebrated and the Universe invites us all to take time out and enjoy with all our senses one of the greatest Cosmic events, of which the wedding feast and the subsequent renewal of all life on the Earth plane are outer physical manifestations.

When it’s springtime in the Northern hemisphere and all of nature is stirring after its winter rest, spring blossoms appear everywhere in great abundance and beauty. Admiring them, let us remind ourselves from time to time of the process of spiritual growth and harmony that is constantly at work behind any manifestation in the world around us. All children of the Universal Life Force, who are aware of this, have their work cut out for themselves, not merely on the physical plane but by adding our voices to the chorus of praise and thanksgiving that is part of the great orchestra of life. Watching its unfolding helps us to become ever more aware of and in tune with those beavering away behind the outer form of life to bring forth the living manifestations of God’s life on the Earth plane.

Whenever an opportunity for it arises, let us therefore go out into Mother Nature. Under he canopy of Heaven we seek the shelter and shade of the mighty branches of the Universal Tree of Life, God, and absorb His/Her blessings of healing and peace for ourselves and for everything – seen and unseen – that shares this life with us.

From ‘The Sun In Taurus’

Happy May Day!

With love and light,
Aquarius
