“Purification” by Alan Fisher
It's a matter of purification Of the heart and the mind Of developing your own integrity So that you're gentle and kind Of letting insults and criticism Pass right on through While you remain transparent To thine own Self be true Light enough to float above The problems of the day And to radiate love Whatever comes your way
“I” by Alan Fisher
Can you feel the vibration? It's the rhythm of life For most it goes unnoticed 'till they're under the knife But while the heart is beating and you are yet alive Become conscious of that Source from which all of life derives The flowers you admire, the sunshine of your day The touch of your sweetheart, the silence when you pray The breath you take for granted, the clouds up in the sky The essence of your being, the person you call "I".
“God” by Alan Fisher
Whenever you doubt that God exists Look in the mirror and touch your face When you try to hold your breath for long The lungs will soon replace We're awesomely made to work just fine We are aspects of the Divine It's as close as hands and feet This one heart, one mind We are love, we are perfect We are the life within This is the Garden here on earth Let go, let God, give in
