The Platform - April 23rd, 2011
For months and months now I have been guided to a vacant platform overlooking the hills of jerusalem for my morning practice. It was as if this small piece of stone slab was placed for me to go into deep meditation and ecstatic Yoga at first light everyday. There was a deep sense of belongingness to this platform that I figured was due to the fact that it was surrounded by nature, but, much to my constant yearning of realization of something greater, I happened upon a connection while walking the dog of a Potential Business Partner here in Israel.
For the last week, we have been having constructive meetings about representation in Israel and the possibility of doing an rather large festival in the near future. On this day, My partner and the potential Israeli partner decided to speak in Hebrew in order for the meeting to move along smoothly. So, after a few 30 minutes of gathering my thoughts I decided to get up, have a stretch and look around the yard.
In the distance, I saw a curious looking canine beckoning me to its 20 meter CAGE. After getting over the fact that the poor mutt was in a cage, I decided to take it upon myself to take the muscular and excited mammal for a walk …. he ended up running me! When I walked/ran outside with the poochie, I looked to my left and SAW MY MORNING PLATFORM! WOW I thought, we are so close to where I meditate in the mornings, what a great thing that would be if we ended up working together, maybe I could come for breakfast …. When I returned, I told the potential business partner about my findings and he mentioned the platform was HIS. I guess I have been attracting him in for some time now. AMAZING!

Day 33 - I am Abundant
This morning while I walked under the first light of this spectacular sunrise, I enjoyed the expanded thoughts of Wayne Dyer. One of the main topics of the day had to do with the state of abundance. Could you ever imagine the SUN having a thought that "today I just won't shine ….." or "am I enough?" I think the answer is clear .... but .... why do we? We think that we are SO BIG that we can just dim out whenever we want even though the WORLD needs us just as much as it needs the SUN. I say we make a commitment to SHINE our LOVE LIGHT in every moment possible with acts of gratitude, compassion and inner peace…..WHO's IN? .... and ….. How will you SHINE today???

"Skepticism does not arise in children. It comes only in people who walk within boundaries. Children live in their fantasy world, a world of many possibilities, a world of innocence, joy, beauty and so much love." - Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
This is how I choose to live! Lately, we have been having listening sessions for our new album Brave New World, and I have to say that there is so much skepticism about the concept. Phrases like "It is going to be really hard to market. " - "People don't want to hear various styles of music on one CD." I have to say that I KNOW PEOPLE WANT TO HEAR DIFFERENT STYLES OF MUSIC MOST OF TIME.....hence the SHUFFLE BUTTON on our mp3 players. So, what is the difference of doing it on 1 album?
Truly I understand the honest worry of each and every person that poses the same question about Brave New World. The truth is that the CD will be marketed in many markets to many different people thus expanding the message out to as many people from various backgrounds as possible. This is like the creation of a child, free of boundaries, a fantasy in the material world. A CD THAT YOU ACTUALLY CANNOT PUT IN A BOX (or Genre). HMMMM…Imagine that!?
I choose to create from the heart, a limitless expression of collaborative excellence. Are you ready for something new????
