Our Common Bond Speaks Forth and Cries Out to Be Remembered

What is enlightenment? Is it sustainable? And can these questions even be answered in this lifetime?

Sometimes, there are no easy answers. Sometimes, the strength is found in the struggling. Thrown into the world of adult problems, life can look a lot more complex and difficult than back when you and I were children.

Remember when we were children? It was easier back then to be aware of and to remember our common bond.

Our common bond speaks forth and cries out to be remembered.

Remembering what we share would certainly help bring about more peace, love, and happiness in life.

May these lyrics do their part to help us remember the common bond we share.

“Common Bond” lyrics by James Barnett

Is it just me
Or is my life going nowhere
What am I doing here
Why am I alive
How do I show my value
These are not rhetorical questions
They must have answers
They must
They have to
Isn’t living better than dying
Seems that I die a little more each day
What would it be like to be more alive
Some days I’ve known that sensation
That sense of bliss
That other knowingness
To truly be alive
To truly be alive

Beyond the veil
Lies what I’m searching for
Beyond illusion
Is the truth of our reality
Oh, say can you see
How things really are
We are all spirit
More expansive than we realize
All of the same energy
All united at the heart of it all
Our common bond speaks forth
Cries out to be remembered
Each and every day
Could that be enlightenment
And is it sustainable

I wonder as I wander
Where have I been before
With each new day that dawns
Could I evolve the mystery
If I’m ever bored in life
Then I’m doing it wrong
Where is that sense of wonderment
I want to be awed and inspired
I want to be excited
I want to be happy
I see where I’ve made the mistake
I’ve seen such things as out of reach
A state of wanting keeps me lacking
And that points me to the solution
It’s simple but not easy
Too bad I keep forgetting it

Beyond the veil
Lies what I’m searching for
Beyond illusion
Is the truth of our reality
Oh, say can you see
How things really are
We are all spirit
More expansive than we realize
All of the same energy
All united at the heart of it all
Our common bond speaks forth
Cries out to be remembered
Each and every day
Could that be enlightenment
And is it sustainable

I keep forgetting my own strength
I keep thinking I’m weak
Helpless and hopeless I’ve seen myself
Where is the way out
Been stuck in a pit so long
What is the lesson here
From wanting to winning
Can be like the flick of a mental switch
It’s not “I want”
It’s “I am”
It’s not “I want”
It’s “I do”
It’s not “I want”
It’s “I have”
That makes abundance possible
And better than that, real
I awaken to a beautiful dream
One that I’ve desired for lifetimes
I’m awake, I’m here right now

Beyond the veil
Lies what I’m searching for
Beyond illusion
Is the truth of our reality
Oh, say can you see
How things really are
We are all spirit
More expansive than we realize
All of the same energy
All united at the heart of it all
Our common bond speaks forth
Cries out to be remembered
Each and every day
Could that be enlightenment
And is it sustainable

Beyond the veil
Lies what I’m searching for
Beyond illusion
Is the truth of our reality
Oh, say can you see
How things really are
We are all spirit
More expansive than we realize
All of the same energy
All united at the heart of it all
Our common bond speaks forth
Cries out to be remembered
Each and every day
Could that be enlightenment
Can we sustain it
Is it sustainable
Is it sustainable
Is it sustainable
