~ The Music of the Spheres ~

When you begin to hear
the Music of the Spheres,
you can’t help
but to observe
Silence and to lead
a reverent Life~
Awaken my dear,
find the way
to yourself,
come to the Essence,
come to Love
in its sublimest form~
Learn to read
the divine notes
that ornate your soul~

ONE WORD written & produced by Tajh Abdulsamad & Aïda Touré

tajh_abdulsamadFrom childhood, an artist whose voice has had a great influence on me is Tajh Abdulsamad, he was part of the Motown recording group “the Boys” in the late 80’s, early 90’s.

Tajh is one of the most spiritual artists I know so when he asked me if he could sing on a composition of mine, I naturally felt inclined to say yes; I was so curious to discover what he would hear in the composition as well as the way he would lay his vocals on it…

When Tajh let me hear “One Word” the-boys- for the first time I was blown away because his singing on it was so heartfelt and enchanting, it  had the sacred vibe I had hoped for so I was profoundly touched. I then learned a great lesson on creative synergy, the reality of frequency and on how honoring one’s soul matters most…

It was an immense pleasure for me to collaborate with an artist who has influenced me for so many years, thank you Tajh. You may listen to “One Word” below.

Drenched in Color

Trials have a way of centering us, and then the Peace that follows is almost surreal, celestial~ Al hamdulillah I’ve been drenched in color during the past couple of weeks so I wrote many poems, enough to compile them in another new book inshAllah~

Today I just wanted to share with my readers one of the most beautiful compositions I ever heard. I discovered it while watching Yi San, a Korean historical drama that I immensely enjoyed for its deep emotions and lessons on true nobility, virtue and wisdom.

Sublimity to Mirror

I took a walk in my neighborhood and saw this!

In the past few days, I have experienced a very particular atmosphere, so exquisite I still can’t fully understand it.  Sometimes it’s best to just accept that it’s okay to not grasp something and to just bask in it. It’s rewarding to follow own one’s heart and to do what brings us joy, for only attuning to one’s own inner being can trigger fulfillment which ends up manifesting outwardly as well; what comes from the outside to us, be it people or situations, relationships  start within us first.

I also had one of the most heart-warming lessons ever about the impact of creativity: I’ve learned that whatever we think and nurture does expand and unfold beyond time, space in a way we can’t imagine and that this occurs with such precision it makes me feel humbled to even be… so this whole convergence of events has triggered some new musical compositions in me, I will release them soon…

One thing I know for sure is that what we do creates some sort of waves that affect other forms of life whence the importance to cultivate light so that love and not chaos is instilled in those who share this space with us. We may not even be aware of the effect of our thoughts and vibes, yet they’re real, the study of quantum speaks to this.

To the refined self, Beauty when seen is recognized because it is familiar to the soul always. I think its manifestations at some point can truly be overwhelming yet and still it makes my soul dance… and I say al hamdulillah! Live in the world and don’t dwell on the world’s darkness, your heart has some sublimity to mirror…
