For those of us that like to ponder Life’s big questions, what if love is all it was, is a wonderful place to start.
I have mentioned Peter Mayer before 🙂 His music is often philosophical in nature…which I LOVE ?
His latest album, Catching Rain, has several gems. One of my favorites is a song that talks about the possibility of love being the basis of the formation of the universe and the essence in which we live and move and have our being. Lyrics always elicit more emotion –for me anyway–with the music for which they were written. I hope you will consider checking out the album (see my affiliate link above to amazon :)) I will post a YT video of a different song below the lyrics–just to give you an idea of Pete’s style.
I share his music mostly because I love it and find it meaningful and uplifting. Obviously, there’s always a chance I will earn a little bit if you make any purchases (as will Pete) 🙂 Such is the nature of blogging 😛
I should also mention that I actually have been endorsed by Pete to create merchandise with his song lyrics–we share profits. 🙂 Check things out in two places:
Gearbubble Store–look for “Peter Mayer” section in menu
The Good News Cafe Shop (on Etsy)–search “Peter Mayer” in store search bar
So here are the lyrics to the song, What if Love. The part I like the most is at the end–about reaching out to what’s already there. Fits nicely with my own ideas about Spirit’s presence ?.
WHAT IF LOVE (by Peter Mayer from Minnesota)
Science has revealed at last
What happened in the distant past
Back in the beginning of time
But from what the Cosmos came
Back before the great big bang
It’s finding more hard to describe
It could be anybody’s guess
So is it crazy to suggest
What if love
What if love
What if love is all it was?
And what if that love still sings
Is still alive in everything
Moving through the whole universe
Rising in the light and dark
Hiding in the smallest part
Burning like a flame that always burns
Like the atoms, like the air
Invisible but everywhere
What if love were the organizing force
By which the beauty of the world emerged
That joined the particles into molecules
And living cells and redwood trees and bees and birds
And what if to act on love’s behalf, to practice kindness
Is the most natural thing of all
Then when we feel undone
Or sick because we’ve been spun
Around on the wheel of despair
We can just breathe it in
Reach for that source again
Reach out to what’s already there
The mystery from whence we came
Just for a song let’s give it a name
Here’s The Play (another favorite 🙂 )
