Metanoia ~ A Song

“Metanoia” is the name of a song released on my last album.  It’s also a Greek word that denotes conversion.  Literally it means “beyond the mind” and, in graduate studies, my teacher said the essence of the term is to “think differently.”  This song is about letting go of distorted views and instead choosing more life-giving perspectives.  In doing so, we set ourselves free to return to love.  As we approach the religious holidays of Passover and Easter, it seems appropriate to share a message about the  liberating and transformative shifts that can happen in our lives.  To hear “Metanoia,” visit the MUSIC page of this website.  It is the eleventh track on the “Calling Deep” album.  May you be inspired!

Drunk on emotions

You’re lost in an ocean

Where all you can see is this ever blue-green

 

At first it’s enticing

But soon it’s a vice and 

When you see the horizon you’ll know what it means

 

To think differently

Beyond the mind

To all that could be

You’ve got to think differently

Return to love

And set yourself free

 

Perversions of truth

Have surely robbed you

Of the honest expression born into your heart

 

But stop playing the victim

Embrace all that wisdom

Trust your experience knows where to start

 

To think differently

Beyond the mind

To all that could be

You’ve got to think differently

Return to love

And set yourself free

Think differently

Beyond the mind

To all that could be

You’ve got to think differently

Return to love

And set yourself free

 

Set yourself free

To think differently
