Invictus 03:05
Out of the night that covers me, Black as the pit from pole to pole, I thank whatever gods may be For my unconquerable soul. In the fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance My head is bloody, but unbowed. Beyond this place of wrath and tears Looms but the horror of the shade, And yet the menace of the years Finds, and shall find, me unafraid. It matters not how strait the gate, How charged with punishments the scroll, I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul. William Ernest Henley To view the video of 'Invictus': http://www.elikamahony.com/2014/01/01/video-for-invictus/

You were born together, and together you shall be forevermore. You shall be together when the white wings of death scatter your days. Ay, you shall be together even in the silent memory of God. But let there be spaces in your togetherness, And let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another, but make not a bond of love: Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls. Fill each other's cup but drink not from one cup. Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone, Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music. Give your hearts, but not into each other's keeping. For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts. And stand together yet not too near together: For the pillars of the temple stand apart, And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other's shadow.

"The essence of love is for man to turn his heart to the Beloved One, and sever himself from all else but Him, and desire naught save that which is the desire of his Lord." ~ Baha'u'llah

'The Photograph' The photograph I see comes alive so easily And tells me of a life that was so pure He would never turn away from anyone And the love in His eyes is so real He suffered all His life to show us how to be free He could always love His enemy And through the worst of trials He could always smile and lift the heart of every friend up so high 'Abdu’l-Bahá was His name and 'Abdu’l-Bahá was His life 'Abdu’l-Bahá was His aim His whole life a sacrifice 'Abdu’l-Bahá 'Abdu’l-Bahá He could take the hand of a sad and a broke man and wash away his fears for awhile He could understand the secrets we defend and make it feel that living was worthwhile 'Abdu’l-Bahá was His name and 'Abdu’l-Bahá was His life 'Abdu’l-Bahá was His aim His whole life a sacrifice 'Abdu’l-Bahá And anytime you feel bruised at heart remember His glorious smile and call to mind the promise He made: I will be with you always 'Abdu’l-Bahá was His name and 'Abdu’l-Bahá was His life 'Abdu’l-Bahá was His aim His whole life a sacrifice 'Abdu’l-Bahá "Let the love and light of the Kingdom radiate through you until all who look upon you shall be illumined by its reflection. Be as stars, brilliant and sparkling in the loftiness of their heavenly station." His whole life a sacrifice 'Abdu’l-Bahá 'Abdu’l-Bahá

O God, my God, my Beloved, my heart's Desire. - The Bab

O Thou kind Lord! Graciously bestow a pair of heavenly wings unto each of these fledglings, and give them spiritual power that they may wing their flight through this limitless space and may soar to the heights of the Abha Kingdom. O Lord! Strengthen these fragile seedlings that each one may become a fruitful tree, verdant and flourishing... Grant that this youth may attain unto that which is the highest aspiration of the holy ones. Endow him with the wings of Thy strengthening grace-wings of detachment and divine aid-that he may soar thereby into the atmosphere of Thy tender mercy... ~ Abdu'l-Baha

I adjure Thee by Thy might, O my God! Let no harm beset me in times of tests, and in moments of heedlessness guide my steps aright through Thine inspiration. (The Bab, Baha'i Prayers, p. 28)

Today is the day To lend a helping hand To give of ourselves To aid our fellow man There is no task Too big or small Service is an honor When you’re given the call (Chorus) Service to mankind Is everyone's duty Helping is in itself A form of beauty (Chorus part 2) Think ye at all times of rendering some service to every member of the human race Service is for the young Service is for the old Men and women, boys & girls Assisting the world Service to others Is a form of light Brings smiles to all faces Helps the world unite Chorus Listen to the words That came from the Master’s lips Work done in the spirit of service Is the highest form of worship

about

These single tracks consist of music I have worked on in the past. Favorites are 'Invictus', a poem set to music in honour of Nelson Mandela. Another favourite is a recitation on Kahlil Gibran's poem 'On Marriage' accompanied by a spontaneous piano piece! Enjoy!
