Let's Be Civil (Gay Marriage Song)

The jesting of opposite sex marriage is only intended to point out the obvious and not meant to demean heterosexual relationships....some of our best friends are not gay! THANK YOU to all who support LGBT equality.All we want is EQUAL CIVIL RIGHTS as provided by the Constitution of the United States.

As of August 2012:
-In 29 States, you can be fired for being Gay.
-There are more than 1,000 federal protections and rights denied to the LGBT community because we cannot legally marry- including no legal authority during the medical emergency of a partner and restricted care of our own children.
-Bullying of LGBT teenagers is a life-theatening act that is learned from our society.
EVERYONE WINS WHEN WE ALLOW MORE LOVE IN!

Awakening to Love by Troubadours of Divine Bliss






All these rooms in my Soul
I'm so afraid to go
behind the walls- secrets, scars and shadows
I will no longer feel this pain
no longer be restrained
Wild-eyed Innocence- let my Soul be born again

Now's the time to heal
what's been broken inside
I've waited, waited too long to cry
Now's the time to show
all the things I felt I had to hide
I hold the key to the cage I'm locked inside
Open the door and let me fly!

Awaken Me to Love
Awaken Me to Love
Awaken Me to Love

We're all humming the same tune
Dreaming under the same Moon
just trying to get it right
longing for the Light
So many stories to tell,
we know that Love will prevail
if we believe we are all worthy

We are worthy to be loved and love abundantly
Worthy to feel the depths so tenderly
Worthy to forgive and be forgiven
Worthy to hold the Kingdom of Heaven within
The Kingdom of Heaven is within

Awaken Us to Love
Awaken Us to Love
Awaken Us to Love

From every corner we will meet
Encircle the Ancient Tree
and if we stand there long enough
we'll remember how to Sing
how to Laugh, how to Trust,
how to be at Peace
how to Dream in a chorus of remembering

We are called to be Wise, to be Strong, to be True
Called to rise to the Higher Self inside of you
Called to be Whole to Heal and Reveal
Called to feel this Ocean of Love
Ocean of Love

Awaken us to Love
Awaken Us to Love
release rejection
release perfection
release hate it's not too late
you're not a prisoner of your Fate

Awaken Love in us
Awaken Love in us
awaken us, awaken us

This is a time in which many are seeking, healing, revealing, connecting to themselves & this beautiful offering of Earth & Life we have been given.

There is an awakening occurring...we are wishing to break free of old habits & patterns that no longer serve our spirits or the human spirit on this beautiful planet.

We believe there is a better way that we can be together in this life. This turning, this shift must first begin within. We hope these songs of our heart will affirm your path & inspire your quest of awakening.

Thank you for believing in our bliss & most importantly, believing in your own sweet life & purpose.

Thank you to The Friend who is awakening us to Love and who is escorting us up the stairway of existence into this dream of Utopia.

" New levels of spiritual awareness are upon us and by recognizing their beauty we can inspire every aspect of our lives. Let your soul be an oasis of transformation that takes your life to the next level and fulfills your dreams. Rejoice in your awakening, the future is now and love is in every breath you take."

Serenade for Seraphim... a song for our Angels

Serenade for Seraphim

 a Song for our Angels
by Troubadours of Divine Bliss

You're an Angel, that's what you are

You're the reason, I made it this far

and I don't have wish cause you are the star of this show, don't you know?

You're the reason I believe in miracles and destiny

You're the Guardian of my Dreams



When I was far away from home, you gave me a place to lay my head

When I felt all alone, you suddenly appeared

When my hands were empty, you reached out to share

When it seemed my dreams would not come true, you were the answer to my prayer

you were always there



When hope was lost, you gave me yours

My Compass, My Anchor

when I was drifting out to sea,

you saw my need and rescued me

Your the wind beneath my sails

my truest friend that never fails

Your the coin in my Wishing Well



When I was far away from home, you gave me a place to lay my head

When I felt all alone, you suddenly appeared

When my hands were empty, you reached out to share

When it seemed my dreams would not come true, you were the answer to my prayer

you were always there



You're my Angel, my Alchemist

You made a way where none exists

From the seed you gave- this Garden lives

You're a messenger of kindness

You're the Muse in my music,

an instrument of bliss

and I vow to give the others this gift



When I was far away from home, you gave me a place to lay my head

When I felt all alone, you suddenly appeared

When my hands were empty, you reached out to share

When it seemed my dreams would not come true, you were the answer to my prayer

you were always there



Thank you for your love sublime

your gracious gifts, your bread and wine

Thank you for being the Hand of the Divine

My heart's so full of gratitude

for all the ways you see me through

You are my Angel right here on Earth

Thank you for being an Angel on Earth

Invite the Light

INVITE THE LIGHT

Take me down, Take me down
Take me down to the water's edge
where I know that I'll be fed
Take me down
Cause I've grown tired of the games and weary of the ways of this world

Lead me on, Lead me on
Lead me on to a brand new dawn
where I know that I belong
Lead me on and on
cause I've grown tired of the games and weary of the ways of this world

oooh When I'm feelin tossed about and lost at sea
No one in sight to rescue me
I hold on, I know I carry on
I grow strong when I invite the Light of Love to shine through me
Invite the Light of Love to shine through me
then it's all good, it's all good, it's all good
yes it's all good, it's all good, it's all good

Lift me up, Lift me up
Lift me up higher and higher
til I can feel your love....lift me up
cause I've grown tired of the games and weary of the ways of this world

Pour through me, Pour through me a new anointing
Pour through me
cause I've grown tired of the games and weary of the ways of this world

oooh When I'm feelin tossed about and lost at sea
No one in sight to rescue me
I hold on, I know I carry on
I grow strong when I invite the Light of Love to shine through me
Invite the Light of Love to shine through me
then it's all good, it's all good, it's all good
yes it's all good, it's all good, it's all good

oooh When I'm feelin tossed about and lost at sea
No one in sight to rescue me
I hold on, I know I carry on
I grow strong when I invite the Light of Love to shine through me
Invite the Light of Love to shine through me
then it's all good, it's all good, it's all good
yes it's all good, it's all good, it's all good

The Greening

THE GREENING
Spring has sprung as Winter falls asleep
and I'm in love with every little beating thing
there's a skip in my step, there's a whistle through the leaves
the clouds are pullin taffy, the birds are laughing
there's a dandelion growing through the crack of my smile
and my skin aint seen the Sun in quite a long while
as the sky lingers long, the horizon fills in
with everything that yearns to be born again...
I'm alive. It feels so free.
I'm on the inside of The Greening
Shattered the brittle frost and shivered into Opening...
I'm waking to be...in the Greening

I wanna feel the Deep Hum of Knowing
sow my roots into The Source and surrender to my growing
to know both the Seed and the Ancient Tree sowing itself into sky
Rumi says, "With the one rose you've purchased this Rose Garden- one seed, a wilderness"
I say, what a gift, what a simply wondrous gift...
the surprise of basil on my lover's lips
and the peppery wine that we sipped
and how everything that flowers opens itself like a cup- like a bell
like a hand longing to be held
I'm alive. It feels so free.
I'm on the inside of The Greening
Shattered the brittle frost and shivered into Opening...
I'm waking to be...in the Greening

How can it be that ball of fire, light years from me, finds It's way to lay a kiss on my cheek?
There are billions of us spinning like one-of-a-kind stars
aching to discover just what we are
like the moment the winged one first takes flight
like the first spark of dawn that lifts the curtain of night
so Disband the guards! Let down the gates! Unveil my heart cause it's Life that I chase...
I'm alive. It feels so free.
I'm on the inside of The Greening
Shattered the brittle frost and shivered into Opening...
I'm waking to be...in the Greening
