What a joy to find that Rising Appalachia, Tina Malia and two other lady singers have now joined forces!

Starling Arrow is a collaboration of artists Leah and Chloe of Rising Appalachia, Tina Malia, Ayla Nereo + Marya Stark. The ensemble was unintentionally conceived during in the years of lockdown when they began to meet weekly over zoom to alchemize the chaos of a changing world into their craft of songwriting. https://starlingarrow.com/

This is just what I needed this morning incredibly stabilitating. 

It amazes me how the spiritual topography morphs on the path.

I've found myself in a pit of snakes yesterday culminating to today.

What is it telling me? What is it for? How to be with this new reality?

Soon to find out...Have great one all  🧡

This beautiful song popped up on Youtube today!

Let us go then, you and I,

When the evening is spread out against the sky

Like a patient etherized upon a table;

Let us go, through certain half-deserted streets,

The muttering retreats

Of restless nights in one-night cheap hotels

And sawdust restaurants with oyster-shells:

Streets that follow like a tedious argument

Of insidious intent

To lead you to an overwhelming question ...

Oh, do not ask, “What is it?”

Let us go and make our visit.

There was a god

There was a way

There was a path

There was a norm

There was a way

There was a rule

But there is a heart it beats in you

I Am free! I am free! I am free!

I am free! I am free! I am free!

I am free! I am free! I am free!

I am free! I am free! I am

It knows what’s right

It knows what’s wrong

It knows what’s love

It sings its song

It wants to run

It wants to laugh

It wants to smile

It wants to be free

He deals the cards as a meditation
And those he plays never suspect
He doesn't play for the money he wins
He don't play for respect.

He deals the cards to find the answer
The sacred geometry of chance
The hidden law of a probable outcome
The numbers lead a dance...

Dear Openhand family, 

I'm so glad to present you, the music video River and I made. I wrote this song a couple of months back during our travel in Himalayas. Some of the visuals where shot during our various hikes in the mountains and really represents the trust and freedom we touched at that time. I came back to Goa and recorded this with a very talented producer and violinist who added lot of beautiful emotions to the song. River flowed back and joined us after a couple of months to shoot the rest of video and worked his craft. Moreover we had a lot of fun through this process. I trust you will enjoy it. Victory Hand We would love to hear your feedback Slightly Smiling
Much love Heart
Sky

Just watching this a fresh having seen it a couple of times before and I'm even more blown away!

The lightness and simplicity yet also the intricate layers are just beautiful! It really speaks into the Soul with such a catchy, memorable chorus, I think it's going to keep coming back to me frequently. Amazing, keep going Sky and River, you have something really special, what a lovely collaboration! The imagery is delightful and completely compliments the song.

Thankyou dear Open and Tilly for your never ending support and encouragement. There's so much love in this community,  it frequently brings me to tears. 

A lot of work was put behind making this video come alive by all those who contributed especially the producer who did such exceptional work. So I really feel its the collective work and soul energy that's shining through. I also wanted to give up making this song and video couple of times as I was also inquiring what's the point ? To be honest producing it and presenting it before this lovely community was also one of the reasons  that kept me going. Personally I have learned so much from the process of making it and also from the end result. I also got some truest reflection from Open from the facilitator gathering which I honor. That's the point I feel , when we engage in something and put ourselves out there then that's when we get the reflections we need. 

We hope to collaborate more in the future and do more of such creative projects and I know we will learn something each time.

Something about my first and then second and then third experience here at OPENhand...
every time I "sink into" the energy here and tap into the SOUL family, I reminded of the surge of being alive.

I love the energy this guy brings in through his voice, so otherworldly. 

Somewhere in my heart in ancient times I wandered
Through these valleys I have climbed among these hills
Faces from a past I’m haunted by their mem’ries
Lives and loves I’ve lost I feel them in me still.

New ground
Far as I can see
New ground
Underneath my feet
Stranger
In a stranger’s land
New chance to know who I am
If I have the strength
To begin again.

Woe that's totally captivating - the energy he brings to his expression.
A powerful example to us all.
Thanks for the share.

There are no words to describe how it feels in the heart to this music by Mei-Lan except that it takes me to another place.  The resonance of her singing touches me deeply and as I sat there singing along, I felt wave upon wave of heat coming from my hands through my spine into my heart.  I didn't want it to end and could sit there in meditation listening to this particular one all day. Thanks for sharing it.

I've been going through quite a resurrection since contracting "covid" some weeks back. I cannot begin to describe yet how it's stripping out the old DNA, but it's nothing short of miraculous. I plan to be sharing more in the days ahead. Meanwhile this really inspired...
