about

Written for the 2019/2020 Tour with Dharma Teacher Terry Cortes-Vega. Calling on the Great Being, Avalokita, our own capacity of listening deeply to help guide us home.

lyrics

You don't find silence by silencing
You don't find the calling of our hearts
By goin around and lookin for it.

You don't find solace by turnin' away
You don't stop a bleeding heart
By coverin' it up and forgettin' about it

This world's on fire
With greed, hatred and delusion
We will stop and listen deeply, listen deeply
So we can help relieve the sufferin in this place

Sometimes we think we've lost our
And sometimes we discover it in the most unlikely of places
So if you're a traveler and you've
Find yourself all caught up in grief and despair
Remember this:
Take a breathe, that's it
Now take a step, [breathe] there ya go

This world's on fire
With greed, hatred and delusion
We will stop and listen deeply, listen deeply
So we can help relieve the sufferin in this place

Namo 'Valokiteshvaraya
Namo 'Valokiteshvaraya
Namo 'Valokiteshvaraya

Namo 'Valokiteshvaraya
Namo 'Valokiteshvaraya
Namo 'Valokiteshvaraya

We will stop and listen deeply, listen deeply
So we can help relieve the sufferin in this place
We will stop and listen deeply, listen deeply
So we can help relieve the suffering on the earth
So we can help relieve the suffering in the world
