"At the moment of commitment the entire universe conspires to assist you." - Goethe

This album has been in the works my entire life. It is my expression of the beautiful and true, of my own journey and of our journey collectively.

The songs on this album (and many more) have been my companions these last years filled uncertainty, faith, and many lessons. This is my first album and it took a certain amount of magic to create it, with the timely and divine help of many people.

If the music touches you and you enjoy it, please support it by purchasing the music for your collection and share it widely.

Special thanks to the incredible musicians who worked on this album to bring these songs to life. I am forever grateful for all of you!

1) On the Same Tree
(Mahalakshmi)
Click here for Lyrics.
We are all on the same tree and the sooner we realize it, the better off we will be. When we see ourselves in the 'other,' the sooner we can be at peace and give the world our special gift.

3) Oh Me! Oh Life!
(Mahalakshmi/Walt Whitman)
Click here for Lyrics.
"Oh Me! Oh Life!" is a poem by Walt Whitman published in 1891 perfectly encapsulating the experience of being human in a post-industrial world and the Divine guidance that reveals the simple purpose of life. The song came to me without lyrics and later I remembered this poem which fit the melody to a tee.

7) Golden Thread
(Mahalakshmi)
Click here for Lyrics.
There is a place inside where everything is relaxed and peaceful. In the midst of an internal storm, I heard this song in my mind; it is a direct transference to the "groundless ground of being" that exists in all moments if we can only remember and surrender to it.

8) In the Womb
(Mahalakshmi)
Despite the fragility of life, we are not that which suffers and dies; we are the spirit, safe in this world and beyond. This song came during a revelation that, during our life on Earth, we are held within another kind of womb; we are yet to be birthed, growing like babies within our Mother. A lullaby for all ages.
