Just watched Gods Not Dead and thought it was a great movie, especially for it being Christian based. While most movies from the Christian camp seem to be watered downed in substance and fluffed up, this one has a bit more of a bite to it and has substance in the revelance of what it means to have faith, question doubt and be a believer in Christ.
LOVE WITHIN BEYOND Regula Curti, Tina Turner, Dechen Shak-Dagsay, and Sawani Shende-Sathaye
A review by Barbara Bullock
Ever since the first Beyond CD release I have been one of the greatest admirers of the Beyond projects. Since the beginning I felt that these projects are really extraordinary and God sent into our world at this time. Divine timing is not always understood by us humble and sometimes impatient human beings, yet our mysterious universe knows exactly when the time is right. I feel that humanity has recently entered a new level of consciousness. More and more people around the world are opening up to the idea of the subconscious level.

Death is the unknown happening.
Our journey, too short and unbeknownst.

The good, the sorrowful, the pain.

“If you want to learn surrender,
then the next time
you are caught out in the rain
without a raincoat or umbrella,
rather than run for shelter,
allow yourself to get wet.
You will be very aware
of the resistance to getting wet,
that instinctual urge
to run for shelter,
the sense of ‘me’
that wants to protect itself.
Couldn’t wait till Sat……..

Light in spirit and carefree – those were the words I first thought of after listening to a few of singer/songwriter Ayla Nereo’s songs the past few days. I first found her through a fundraising campaign on IndieGoGo.com for her new album”BeHeld” (congrates on achieving your goal of $8,000!) and then following her on her facebook.com/ayla.nereo.music page.

Every now and then a CD comes along that beholds a sense of beauty, a vision of emotion, and a strong longing for greater thoughts to culminate and inspire one to create something within one’s own life and imagination. The first time I listened to Alcest’s “Les Voyages De L’Ame” CD all the way through I felt a need to work on the things that bring me joy and embrace the failures of the past and move past them. Yeah, you might say that’s hard to come by from a genre like Black Metal, where imagery of negative forces and hatred abound, but Alcest is more than heavy music, even so, only two or three out of the eight tracks are in that ‘heavy’ category. The rest of the music has a hauntingly, other world feel through out that leaves you wanting more from this band. At the moment the only band that comes to mind is Agalloch which had that haunting nihilistic feeling on their 2002 “The Mantle” CD, yet, Alcest’s music comes from the polar opposite with lyrics longing for the escape from this cold harsh world and the aspirations and loves of something more.

GENRE: NEW AGE/AMBIENT
New Age musician and composer Dean Evenson takes his relaxation music in new directions in his newest release, Relaxation Zone. For this newest endevour Evnson puts down his flute, which has been a staple of his sound for well over 30 years and composes piano and keys for this album that still resonates with ambient healing and relaxing melodies. Music from start to finish, 64min run time with ten tracks, is very soothing, ambient, and lives up to the name of the CD, music that brings you to that stillness within, that relaxation zone where you find peace and love.

In a world saturated with an abundance of musicians trying to make their mark in the music scene, whether it be in Rock, Metal, Country, Pop, Hip-Hop or whatever, few artists rise above with a positive message that brings peace and enlightenment as well as a realistic view of whats going on in the world around us, and even far less musicians bring about that message from a Buddhist viewpoint.

Was roaming through some Facebook friends pages and found this Jewish Reggae/Rock artist by the name of Matisyahu.

TIMES OF GRACE – “Where the Spirit Leads Me” Music Video – Metal/Metalcore
This band has been on my radar for a few months now. The singer, Adam Dutkiewicz, was the original singer for Killswitch Engage and I knew I was going to fall in love with this band. The first time I heard KE I fell in love with the lyrics, which touched on spirtuality in one aspect or another. When I heard that he started TOG I immediately found this song and then the album. Music is in the Metal/Metalcore genre and the lyrics, which are below, are meaningful and powerful. If there ever was a praise and worship song for someone into Metal this is it. The song is off their debut “The Hymn of a Broken Man” which was released Jan 2011. They have been touring the past year and are making their way back throughout the US later this fall.
