Ever had a feeling that came from beyond the mind?
Whatever language we speak in, the invitation is always to transcend their meaning and feel them in the heart. Here is such a powerful expression of the heart called "Now we are Free" which we frequently play during the Openhand Course Work...

    Anol shalom
    Anol sheh lay konnud de ne um
    Flavum
    Nom de leesh
    Ham de nam um das...

    La um de
    Flavne
    We de ze zu bu
    We de sooo a ru
    Un va-a pesh a lay
    Un vi-i bee
    Un da la pech ni sa

    Aaahh

    Un di-i lay na day
    Un ma la pech a nay mee di nu ku

    La la da pa da le na da na
    Ve va da pa da le na la dumda
    La la da pa da le na da na
    Ve va da pa da le na la dumda
    La la da pa da le na da na
    Ve va da pa da le na la dumda
    La la da pa da le na da na
    Ve va da pa da le na la dumda

    Anol shalom
    Anol sheh ley kon-nud de ne um

    Flavum
    M-ai shondol-lee

    Alas sharum

    And here's the Translation:
    Almighty Freedom
    Almighty freer of the soul
    Be free
    Walk with me
    Through the golden fields
    So lovely
    Lovely

    We regret our sins, but...
    We sew our own fate and
    Under my face I remain feeble
    Under my face, I smile

    Aaahh)

    Even alone/afraid
    Under my face I will be waiting

    Run with me now soldier of Rome
    Run and play in the field with the ponies
    Run with me now soldier of Rome
    Run and play in the field with the ponies
    Run with me now soldier of Rome
    Run and play in the field with the ponies
    Run with me now soldier of Rome
    Run and play in the field with the ponies

    Almighty Freedom
    Almighty freeer of the soul
    Be free
    Be free
    And imagine
    Free with peace at last
    It's lovely
    It's lovely, this land
    No one can believe or understand
    How far I came just for my lovely family
    I should have been there
    with them when the world crashed down
    But now they rest with me.

    I'll never forget
    How I felt that moment
    I became free.

Ever had a feeling that came from beyond the mind?
Ever found that sometimes words are imperfect to articulate these feelings?
Whatever language we speak in, the invitation is always to transcend their meaning and feel them in the heart.

Whether English, Hebrew or gobbledegook, we play this music frequently on our courses and find it really opens people up.
They touch something deep within.

That's good enough for me!

Yes you're in the right place Lei - it's an Openhand old favourite. In fact we frequently play it at the beginning of workshops just to get people in the mood.

I was just writing in my journal of the extraordinary freedoms I gained this month (the last 2 Decembers, beginning with Ascension in 2012 have been magical ones for me) from nasty addictions that have plagued me all my life. I thought...''I need a new song''...went to my Youtube 'favorites' and found this one, which I had heard and loved but not played for months and months. It spoke to me today! I thought, 'What is the translation? I see Latin and Hebrew...' Looked it up and my favorite site ''Openhand'' came up. Such a surprise! Such joy!! The translation was there, but not the original language. So looked that up and what did I find but that she sang it what I call ''spirit-language''. I sing that way too! Actually I think it is available to all of us who are seekers and want as full a life as possible in Spirit. So I love her beautiful spirit-song...and I am using the music and singing my own spirit-song words to it which enriches it even more for me. And your meditation is an added blessing. I'm so eager to be part of a community gathering one day...
