C'mon, everybody! Kidding, whoever feels like hhhh, flood this thread with what makes your soul alive, or just resonates with you, or brings an important message, or is just beautiful :D

Leaving the Table, Leonard Cohen's poignant ballad from his last, posthumous album, You Want It Darker, captured in the gorgeous, dreamlike video below.

His words and melody speak soothingly to my heart of letting go, liberating my soul, floating and flying, becoming the sweetness and lightness beyond the pain of identity and attachment.

Love you and miss you, Leonard.

The Beach Boys wrote very spiritual songs! Look at those lyrics:

"But I hit hard at the battle that's confronting me, yeah
Knock down all the roadblocks a-stumbling me
Throw off all the shackles that are binding me down
Sew up the wounds of evolution
And the now starts to get in my way
So what if life's a revelation
If the mind speaks of only today
So real, the pain growing in my soul
Of climbing up to reality's goal"

"Long promised road
Flows to the source, gentle force, never ending, never ending"

The production is also way ahead of their time. Long live to these guys!

I chose this song but I could have chosen any of Jont's songs. He's one of the best artists I have seen in years. I'm so blessed he lives in Halifax, originally from the U.K. We spent one evening at a yoga studio unplugged show and were there till 2 a.m. He's incredibly generous with his music and offers full albums. I'm holding a house concert with him and the lovely John & Michelle from Fall River Yoga Studio. Hope you enjoy as much as I do!

Was already looking at you'

Great song! Curious to see whether posting a Youtube video on the new website might automatically get embedded??

Hi Marije - to embed a video, you have to get the embed code from the share function on the video file and then when you draft the comment, choose full HTML.

Beautiful and timely song from Trevor Hall!

You can't rush your healing
Darkness has its teachings
Love is never leaving
You can't rush your healing
