Inspiring music

How come we still don't have a music thread on the web? :)

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


For all the control freaks like me :), from Jack Johnson's new album, the song 'You can't control it' with powerful video as well:

The other night this song fell in to my lap, I'm sure many of us can relate to the message, all these changes we go through on our paths. And is there a better mirror to reflect your process than meeting someone treating you "like they used to". And noticing you're light years away from that place that made it possible to share any piece of your reality with them. And sometimes that light year might be just few days in Earth time.

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.

Hi Open,

Thanks! I finally managed to embed a video here myself! I had to get into the source code though to do it, but I now know how to do it next time!


Hi Marije,

I loved the song. Brilliant!
And yes, you're right. Comments are not appearing on new articles at the moment. But they are on previous articles and forum topics. We are addressing it. Bear with us!

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

Very touched by this melody and lyrics - thank you for sharing!

"know that my eyes have seen this world through thine ... know that my heart feels the world, is Still Divine" - Grounded Magic heart

It makes me smile Open to know that Still Divine hugs your heart like it does mine. Aspasia Murarry Kyle has others that will touch your soul. He is like Opanhand, spreading his message of love and peace by way of music. Enjoy the journey. 



Horse, thank you for sharing and spreading the love here too with this magical music! Deeply felt.

I have been listening to Murray's shamanic vibe all day and indeed it got my sway on :)

Just heard 'Unlock your memory' by clicking on your link - thank you again!  Wow! And beautiful video, makes me very nostalgic of a world I have never known, a world we sometimes read about where there is only love and peace for all - an Eden.  The song invites us to Unlock our memory... to Remember the Oneness which is already here within and all around, to open individual and collective consciousness - a precious calling! So lets turn the 'TV communication' off! Perfect!

Love and Peace x


Hi Open and Rich, 

Lovely it touches. It really went deep within me the first few times I listened. Everything fell away for a while. 

There's also a movie/documentary about a monk's life by Thich Nhat Hanh called "Walk With Me" - it's showing in the U.K. at the moment - looks quite beautiful.

Lots of love, 

Jennaya ?

Hi Horse - the Openhand work is greatly inspired by the naturalness of Shamanism - with Tibetan heritage. So personally I just love Nahko's music and energy. 

Thanks for sharing

Hi Open, You know I listen to music from the heart and felt by the soul. In a lot of cases I know not the language  that is being sung, yet the energy that comes from it, comes from the universe for all souls to embrace or not. lol

Thanks for being Open.

Much Love


If we are strong enough to let it in, we are strong enough to let it go.

Best wishes to all Slightly Smiling

Hey Alexandros, 

I had this song come as a message before the retreat in La Palma just recently. I was in Iceland to see the Northern Light - which I now see in the clip. 

Good to hear again right now :) still relevant and timely.
