In Every Heart -Songtext by Peter Makena
The first few words of this song are shaped out of a saying from Thich Nhat Han. I felt in it such reverence and appreciation for life and for this planet that I could not help but put it into song. It then slowly leads to the Bhodisatva Vow and a deep surrender and knowing that truth and peace live in every heart.
The present moment is my true home. The present moment is where I belong. And the miracle is not to walk on water but to walk on this green earth. The greatest of all miracles is just to be alive, now.
Peace is available now. Peace is available here. You learn to taste it; and it gives you back your Self. Peace is available now. Peace is available here. You learn to touch it; and it fills you with love.
May all beings be free from danger. May all beings be free from fear. May all beings be happy. May all beings be in peace.
Om Shanti, Shanti Om
May the fire of love ignite us. May your golden song delight us. May the spirit of your grace live in every heart…
I bow to the divine in you.
