Waves of Love, NEW single release 
on Heart Dance Records

There are waves of love coursing through the worlds - and through us - at all times. I hope that, in the gentle swells and surges of this music, you might get to experience some of those irrepressible waves washing over you, or moving you along on your own natural buoyancy. 

Instar*

Scott Reich

*Instar is the stage between molts, which is the process by which the organism sheds its outer shape and structure - in order to grow. Instar can be used for those undergoing incomplete, as well as complete, metamorphosis. It might be said that all phases of our lives are an Instar of sorts.

LYRICS

PURIFY TIME

Purify time: 
Each day, find an act of kindness and beauty 
That belongs to that day alone. 

Someday, eventually, we will all be given 
A heart to understand 
And eyes to see. 

But, for now, just know: 
Once you have unveiled and liberated 
The spark of Good, 
It can RISE to overcome its guise of darkness 
And TRANSFORM the darkness 
To Light. 

Purify time: 
Each day, find an act of kindness and beauty 
That belongs to that day alone. 

Someday, eventually, we will all be given 
A heart to understand 
And eyes to see. 

But, for now, just know: 
Once you have unveiled and liberated 
The spark of Good, 
It can RISE 
It can RISE

HIS FINAL TEST

The flood waters surged. 
They were so strong, he couldn’t resist them. 
He was going under. 

He called out, with his last breath, 
“God, please help me. 
Help me merge my will with Yours.”  

And the waters vanished. 
They were gone. 

And then he realized  
he could go on with his journey. 

And so he did, 
and came to the place. 
And he gave everything of himself 
to the thing he was meant to do. 

So, how did the waters go away so fast? 
Where did they go? 

They vanished, because they were never there. 
They were formed by his mind, 
By his idea of how it was going to work. 

So, when he let go of that idea, 
The resistance vanished 
and he was able to bring all of himself 
to his real mission. 

We can reach the place we were meant to be. 
We can do what we were meant to do. 
But maybe, not in the way that we thought. 

We can choose life 
Or, we can choose our idea of life. 

Maybe it just comes down to this: 
Can I give up everything that I have 
For everything that I love?
