Songs Written About Enlightenment

76 posts in this topic

This song perfectly encapsulates awakening in my opinion:

Turn, turning you a bent-bone weary wandering soul and
Born, borne upon a body you can never own, rollin' you a
Long-bent sideways tumbling a mother-given loom
You knew it when you flew in shuttlin'
Weaver you are goal-bent, but do your strings hold the
Strength of what was given, when you flew in?

Burn, you're burning your own home, some days could you
Live a little lighter, give a little water, give a little eye to
Eye- see from what you're made, gotta lil' shadow in your
Wake, wakin is the way you grow this, know this
Gotta lil' matter to be bade, met and given it away
This the trip we being shown, told is all we've ever known
What another truth you gonna hide? baby finding that you
Choosin' every moment lookin through the frame they givin you

There's a turn from the fear
A stand for the free
A song for the beat-down picking' up steam
And you will hear my voice here singin'
There's a let from the greed
A gift for the kind
And I'll be dancing' with the ones who remind me
We are born of dust and silence
We are made of ancient songs
And there are ones who'll keep us sleeping
And there are ones who bring the dawn
Put your back to the birch and your mind to the matter of a
Listening kind of way
We are born of dust and silence
We are made of ancient songs

Rose, rose upon the shoulders of the
Shoreline, eyesight creeping round the edges of the
Known you've known it from before, before your sight was
Shorn shifted and they told you not to talk of this
But you remember in your sleep, all the ones that you could see
Raisin' candles to the sky, through the forest dark as night
Wide-eyed, keep stride this the path you bein' shown
Sure thing keep singin to the ones you walkin on

They the wonder, you the sky they look upon
You are clouds to them, givin' harm or givin' form
Do we greet them with a grace?
Do we run or do we face
The ones who helping us to heal our choice and choose again

Bade farewell all you've been told
Waves are rising you to shore
It's not what you say what you think
It the walk and the way that you do
So you
Give what you give what you can what you give what you
Give what you are what you give — give what you
Want what you
Give what you give what you can what you give what you
Give what you are what you can
You will hear my voice here singin…
Give what you can what you give, give what you want
I'll be dancing with the ones who remind me…
I'll be dancing with the ones who remind me…
We are born of dust and silence
We are made of ancient songs
And there are ones who'll keep us sleeping
And there are ones who bring the dawn
Put your back to the birch and your mind to the matter of a
Listening kind of way
We are born of dust and silence
We are made of ancient Songs

Someone's been trying to tell us for a while... Check out the grey background too when the seasons are tiled!

@nado Sweet! Truth is everywhere ♥️ What fortune, what luxury to be a rower , to be such dust 🙏🏻

Then he heard it again
Just a very faint yelp
As if some tiny person were calling for help
Help, help

"I'll help you...
But who are you and where?
He looked and he looked
He could see nothing there
But a small speck of dust
Blowing past through the air

I say, how confusing, I've never heard tell
Of a small speck of dust that is able to yell
So you know what I think?
I think that there must be someone
On top of that small speck of dust

Some poor little person
Who's shaking with fear
That he'll blow in the pool
He has no way to steer
He's alone in the universe

I'll just have to save him
Because after all
A person's a person, no matter how small
A person's a person no matter how small

So, gently and using
The greatest of care
The elephant stretched
His great trunk through the air
And he lifted the dust speck
And carried it over and placed it down safe
On a very soft clover”

  Nonduality & Meditations          Have You Worked On Your Alone?

Empty your head, fill your heart.

I don't know you are a fan of metal, but Forest and Aerials from System of a Down are my favorite songs that are related to enlightenment. :P

An Apocalypse (Ancient Greek: literally meaning "an uncovering") is a disclosure or revelation of knowledge. In religious and occult concepts an apocalypse usually discloses something hidden, or provides... "a vision of heavenly secrets that can make sense of earthly realities".

Radioactive ... the process by which an unstable atomic nucleus loses energy (in terms of mass in its rest frame) by emitting radiation ( “radiation” ), such as an alpha particle, beta particle...gamma ray or electron in the case of internal conversion. A material containing such unstable nuclei is considered radioactive. Certain highly excited short-lived nuclear states can decay through neutron emission, or more rarely, proton emission.

The definitions really recontextualize and the beauty is revealed in the song.

@Nahm beautiful.

This song without words, but for me, it will be always about enlightenment since I had a trip under this song.
