The Grateful Journey
A path to enlightenment told through song
Coming Dec 2018
This is the story of a soul’s enlightenment. It is a journey discovering one’s true self as well as discovering the loving nature of creation. In this story, a human discovers the essence of gratitude - being grateful for all the events of life, including the painful ones. He discovers that all events are designed to help him fulfil his purpose, his mission; and in turn to help him discover his true self.
This story takes the form of a dialogue between a human and Creation. This story is not affiliated with any religion. The word “Creation” may be substituted with “The Universe” or “All That Is” or “God”. For the purpose of this story’s message, “Creation” is a collective noun for all that is; the grand collective consciousness of the universe.
This album has a purpose, it brings a message. This message is for those who are feeling the weight of the world upon them, like they are buried, like they are reaching the limit of how much pain they can take. It is for those feeling overwhelmed by the burdens of life and are feeling unsure of their reason for being here. It is for those who may be in search for answers to why painful things have happened, or are happening, to them. It is for those with self-image issues or poignant existential questions. I hope the message of this album provides counsel to people experiencing these negative states.
That message is this: You are perfect, just as you are. Whatever you have or have not done, whatever path you have travelled, you are worthy of love. Your voice is heard. You are loved, and you are not alone. Don’t give up now! Every moment in life is giving you exactly what you need to fulfil your destiny, and living your destiny is the greatest gift you could give humanity.
I hope this album inspires you to take a step towards making your dreams come true. I hope this album helps and inspires people to overcome negative states. Emotions like anger, hatred, resentment, depression and anxiety are only symptoms of not seeing the love that the universe is made of. Creation wants to help you. Creation wants you to be in a better place and they are giving you what they can. It can be hard to see it, just keep asking yourself – “where’s the love” – I promise you’ll find it if you keep looking, and don’t be afraid to ask for help. When we see all events as guiding us (or even pushing us) towards your joyful destiny, we experience no anger or resentment. Just love. We become truly grateful for all that is. This brings inner peace. We then see ourselves as perfect. We then love ourselves unconditionally, as well as others, without judgement or ego. From there, we can understand our place in the world. This clears the path to follow one’s heart and fulfil our destiny. You have everything you need, inside and outside of you, to live a joyful and fulfilled life.
I would not dare to profess or preach without qualification. This story is autobiographical - a set of critical observations. Everything described herein, I have experienced, and the lyrics reflect the wisdom that I gathered throughout this journey. Though painful, this journey took me closer to understanding my true self, my destiny and the mind of God. I am excited to share this story with humanity. I want it to help and inspire people to overcome negative states, love themselves, love the world, follow their heart and fulfil their destiny!
