After the passing of last year and a new one long before us, it’s made think of life itself, and being. This weekend’s music thread is about life, the afterlife, being and existence. I have posted songs that make us slow down and think, stop to smell the roses, and just indulge ourselves in wonder. I’m thinking also of songs about the cosmos and Karma.
Cosmic Karma has taken billions of years,
It’s the sharp bright twinkling of the stars
In the blackness and the void.
It’s all the suns and moons and planetary hosts.
It’s all the beings and plants so close, and
Sea sunny scents on the shores of vast oceans.
It’s a newborn’s cry and an old man’s sigh.
It’s looking upwards to the sky
While never needing why.
So pick you favorites, the ones that make you wonder or the ones that give you hope and a sense of awe.
