Track Name: Sharing the Joy
❤ Sharing the Joy ❤

Lyrics:
Sharing the joy, shining the light,
singing the bliss and soaring in Christ,
sharing the peace, shining the truth,
singing and soaring in You.

Joined in one purpose:
To heal what never was.
Peace is our purpose;
forgiving and living in love.

Sharing the joy, shining the light,
singing the bliss and soaring in Christ,
sharing the peace, shining the truth,
singing and soaring in You.

We cast off the burdens of
guilt and sorrow and sin.
We rise up in purpose,
remembering Heaven within.

Sharing the joy, shining the light,
singing the bliss and soaring in Christ,
sharing the peace, shining the truth,
singing and soaring in You.

We call to our brothers:
This world offers nothing you want.
But joined in one purpose,
God's joy is our life and our song.

Sharing the joy, shining the light,
singing the bliss and soaring in Christ,
sharing the peace, shining the truth,
singing and soaring in You.

Track Name: This Need Not Be
❤ This Need Not Be ❤

Lyrics:
This need not be, your troubled mind,
to God's dear child, be not unkind
The body self that you have made,
has done no wrong, deserves not hate

When you are sad, and filled with guilt,
remember God who loves you still
His sleeping child, with dreams of sin,
let Spirit heal your suffering

This need not be, this need not be
What is not love, this need not be

This need not be, your pain and tears,
repeated over and over through the years
Depression comes when one's deprived
Of joy or lack, you decide

When you feel hurt, angry or lost,
you have not heard the Voice for God
But listen now and choose again,
yourself inflicted pain can end

This need not be, this need not be
What is not love, this need not be

You spirit shines with holiness
God's light in you was meant to bless
You and your brothers are but one,
created whole and only love

Do not attack what God creates
with thoughts of judgment, fear and hate
As up your altar, tend your mind,
with radiant thoughts born of the Christ

And you will be free, you will be free
What is not love, this need not be

Track Name: Love Is Seeking Me
❤ Love Is Seeking Me ❤

Lyrics:
Love is seeking me.

(In this world, people seek and do not find,
and it can seem disheartening and depressing.
But, it is a sign of hope when you think that Love is seeking you.)

Love is seeking me.
It is peering through the windows of my mind.
Love is seeking me,
and I've heard that what It seeks it always finds.

I can smell Its holy fragrance like a flower
grown in heaven or the perfume of a
morning at first light.
I can feel Its gaze upon me. Should I
run as I have always done, or dare I
turn and look into Love's eyes?

Love is seeking me.
I feel Its gentle breath upon my face.
Love is seeking me,
but I wonder if I'll die in Its embrace.

In my heart so long imprisoned hope is
stirring at the thought that I might be someone
who's worthy of God's Love.
Could it be that I've been dreaming of a
world that is impossible, a self who never
sinned and never was.

Love is seeking me.
I feel its tender presence all around.
Love is seeking me,
and I think that I am ready to be found.

(You do not have to seek for It.
You merely have to find – discover -
all the obstacles to the awareness of Love's presence,
and you know that Love will find you,
for what It seeks, It finds.)

Love is seeking me.
I feel Its tender presence all around.
Love is seeking me,
and I think that I am ready to be found.

I will turn and look upon the One Who is
the Source of everything, Who claims Me
as His own beloved Child. I surrender
to the truth of Love, feel myself made
new by Love, and cradled in Love's
sweet eternal smile.

Love is keeping Me,
safe beneath Its shining wings of peace.
Love is keeping Me,
in Its light I find reality.

❤ I Am Here ❤

Lyrics:
I am here
beneath your pain, behind your fear
my dear child, within your mind
I am here

You have made this world
of anger, hate and hurt
where you dream that you deserve your guilty pain
But you who are myself, my treasure and my wealth
Let my love break the spell of sin and shame

I am here
I could not leave my child so dear
Reach for my strength, my love, my peace, for I am here
Beneath your hours and your days,
I wait in gentleness and grace, it’s ever yours
forever more

I am here
beneath your pain, behind your fear
my dear child, within your mind
I am here

Created out of light, you were perfect in my sight
and your nightmares cannot alter what you are
Behind your veil of dreams, our love is all that’s real
I’ll be here for you always, in your heart

I am here, I am here, I am here

Track Name: Love Walks in Sunlight
❤ Love Walks in Sunlight ❤

Lyrics:
Love walks in sunlight, its eyes open wide
Sincere the welcome, in its happy smile
Love walks in sunlight, with nothing to hide
Come, walk with Love at your side

Bring the darkness to the light
Every fearful thought you've kept
Bring the darkness to the light
Your dreams of guilt and death

Love has no secrets held fearfully within
Love is not a body, no treasure house of sin
Christ has only blessings, He lays on everything
Come, bring your secrets to Him

Bring the darkness to the light
Every fearful thought you've kept
Bring the darkness to the light
Your dreams of guilt and death

Love has no problems, no brothers that it blames
The light of its forgiveness will shine away your shame
Your hidden thoughts are hurting you, but you can choose again
The light of Love undoes your hidden pain

Bring the darkness to the light
Every fearful thought you've kept
Bring the darkness to the light
Your dreams of guilt and death

Love walks in sunlight, its eyes open wide
Sincere the welcome, in its happy smile
Love walks in sunlight, with nothing to hide
Come, walk with Love at your side

❤ Heart to Heart ❤

Lyrics:
Heart to heart, I love to be heart to heart,
to learn we've not gone apart,
that we are still one.
Heart to heart, sharing truth heart to heart,
igniting the holy spark
that's the light of God's Son.

Mind to mind, in joining our thoughts divine
as a singular light that shines and undoes
the night. Place to place, sharing the love
and grace, the joyous and gentle way of
remembering we're Christ.

Heart to heart, I love to be heart to heart,
to learn we've not gone apart,
that we are still one.
Heart to heart, sharing truth heart to heart,
igniting the holy spark
that's the light of God's Son.

Heart to heart, join with me heart to heart,
to laugh at the guilty dark and wipe away tears.
Heart to heart, when we join heart to heart,
our happiness we impart to our brothers so dear.

Heart to heart, I love to be heart to heart,
to learn we've not gone apart,
that we are still one.
Heart to heart, sharing truth heart to heart,
igniting the holy spark
that's the light of God's Son.

Soul to soul, peace is our only goal,
remembering we are whole and one in
God's sight. Going home, learning we're
not alone. God's magnitude is our own,
the Source of our life.

Heart to heart, I love to be heart to heart,
to learn we've not gone apart,
that we are still one.
Heart to heart, sharing truth heart to heart,
igniting the holy spark
that's the light of God's Son.

Heart to heart, I love to be heart to heart,
to learn we've not gone apart,
that we are still one.

Track Name: You Can't Fool Me
❤ You Can't Fool Me ❤

Lyrics:
You can't fool me. I know Who You are.
You think You are hiding, and safe in the dark.
But I've got your number, can't mistake your light.
You can't fool me - You're the Christ!

You pretend to be normal,
(I'm just an ordinary person.)
with the usual lies:
(This is a hard world we are living in.)
someone little and frightened,
(I do the best I can, but bad things happen to good people.)
who just wants to survive.
But I've seen the glory,
(Who, me?)
behind your facade.
(You must be confusing me with someone else.)
Such love and such power,
(I don't know what you are talking about.)
comes only from God.

You can't fool me. I know Who You are.
You think You are hiding, and safe in the dark.
But I've got your number, can't mistake your light.
You can't fool me - You're the Christ!

Your mind wears a body,
(I sure wish I could loose some of this weight.)
and pretends it is you.
(It seems like there's never enough time to exercise.)
Maintain and protect it,
(And also my knees have been really bothering me lately.)
is all that you do.
(But I guess that is part of getting older.)
But I've seen the glory,
(Glory? You've gotta be kidding me!)
your spirit can't hide,
(Glory is an extra day at work, or maybe winning the lottery.)
so tender and holy, it must be Divine.

You can't fool me. I know Who You are.
You think You are hiding, and safe in the dark.
But I've got your number, can't mistake your light.
You can't fool me - You're the Christ!

Unfairly treated is the role that you play.
Your fears and defenses, keep others away.
But I've seen the glory, that shines in your heart.
Your human disguises, can't hide what you are.

You can't fool me. I know Who You are.
You think You are hiding, and safe in the dark.
But I've got your number, can't mistake your light.
You can't fool me - You're the Christ!

You're the Christ! You're the Christ!

Track Name: Mirror, Mirror
❤ Mirror, Mirror ❤

Lyrics:
Mirror, mirror on the wall shows to me a self that’s false:
separate, selfish, small and weak, desperate, lonely, incomplete.

Little body, world exploring, learning how to name
(There's a tree. There's a dog.)
ten thousand things all different and no two are the same.
(I see a cloud in the sky.)
Some are good and some are bad and I can learn to tell
(Chocolate is good. Grass smells sweet.)
the ones that give me pleasure and the ones that give me hell.
(Spiders are scary!)

Mirror, mirror on the wall shows to me a self that’s false:
separate, selfish, small and weak, desperate, lonely, incomplete.

Put a mask on, smile, be friendly, show your confidence.
(I am so nervous. I wonder if he likes me.)
Be cute, be sexy, have a good time or at least pretend.
(I look awful. She's so much prettier than me.)
That special love will come along and rescue me from fear.
(Love, where are you? I have waited so long for you.)
He'll want to spend his life with me. He'll wipe away my tears.
(My life is empty without a partner.)

Mirror, mirror on the wall shows to me a self that’s false:
separate, selfish, small and weak, desperate, lonely, incomplete.

Pain and sickness my companions, loneliness that burns.
(I am so lonely. Why did he leave me?)
Relationships that never work, no earthly place to turn.
(No one cares about me.)
Dimly I can hear a Voice that tells me I must bring
(My child, this world is a dream.)
my shattered dreams into my mind and look on them with Him.
(I will help you awaken, to your true Self)

Something's changing.

Mirror, mirror in my mind, shows to me a Self divine.
Radiant, shining child of God, is what I am and always was.

Face of Christ is lighted, peaceful, blessed eternally.
(Now I remember. I did not leave my Father.)
When I choose my innocence, that's all that I can see.
(I'm still innocent, and His beloved child)
I'm the mirror. You're the mirror of the lovely truth.
(You're a beautiful mirror. I look into your eyes...)
Behold in me your holiness reflected back to you.
(...and I feel Christ)

Mirror, mirror in my mind, shows to me a Self divine.
Radiant, shining child of God, is what I am and always was.
Mirror, mirror in my mind, shows to me a Self divine.
Radiant, shining child of God, is what I am and always was.
Mirror, mirror in my mind shows to me a Self divine.

Track Name: There's Another Way
❤ There's Another Way ❤

Lyrics:
There's another way, another way to live.
There's another way, a way you can forgive.
Each feeling and each thought is something you have made.
Give it back to God and take His love in trade.
Fill your mind with light and let the darkness fade.
That's the other way.

When I feel upset or something makes me mad,
when I feel alone or when I'm feeling sad
a quiet Voice inside says this thought need not be:
You can choose again, choose how you want to feel.

There's another way, another way to live.
There's another way, a way you can forgive.
Each feeling and each thought is something you have made.
Give it back to God and take His love in trade.
Fill your mind with light and let the darkness fade.
That's the other way.

No one else can make me feel the way I do.
I don't have to blame my feelings onto you.
And if I should forget and feel the anger rise,
I hear the quiet Voice that says to me, Precious child,

There's another way, another way to live.
There's another way, a way you can forgive.
Each feeling and each thought is something you have made.
Give it back to God and take His love in trade.
Fill your mind with light and let the darkness fade.
That's the other way.

So if you feel afraid, or angry, blue or sad,
remember that you choose each feeling that you have.
Listen for the Voice that's waiting in your mind
to help you choose again and help you to decide

There's another way, another way to live.
There's another way, a way you can forgive.
Each feeling and each thought is something you have made.
Give it back to God and take His love in trade.
Fill your mind with light and let the darkness fade.
That's the other way.

Track Name: That's Not the Reason Why
❤ That's Not the Reason Why ❤

A fun and Helpful "jingle for the mind" when forgetting the absolute Joy of forgiveness!

Lyrics:
That's not the reason why. That's not the reason why.

Do not be deceived by what is on the screen.
Your holy mind's asleep and dreaming bitter dreams.
The figures that you see are images; not real.
Don't blame them anymore if you would truly heal.

That's not the reason why. That's not the reason why.
The problem's not out there. You have to look inside.
That thing that someone did. The words that seemed to hurt
are only in your mind, and that's where you must search.

You haven't really failed. You haven't really lost.
Your problems aren't out there. They're only in your thoughts.
No secrets can be kept. Hold all things to the light,
for secrecy is death. It lets the darkness hide.

That's not the reason why. That's not the reason why.
The problem's not out there. You have to look inside.
That thing that someone did. The words that seemed to hurt
are only in your mind, and that's where you must search.

Forgiveness is the way to see the false as false.
My child, no more delay, but answer Spirit's call.
The Christ besides you stands, and holds a lamp of peace
to light the way within where you will find release.

That's not the reason why. That's not the reason why.
The problem's not out there. You have to look inside.
That thing that someone did. The words that seemed to hurt
are only in your mind, and that's where you must search.

That's not the reason why.

Track Name: As If
❤ As If ❤

Lyrics:
As if there is no world. As if there is no world:
A cosmic dream, a made-up screen, where
figures dance and swirl, and nothing means
a thing except the truth within - that I am
Mind, by God designed. He's calling me to live
as if there is no world.

No longer can I feel that images are real.
No longer will I try adjusting to a lie.
With happiness I see the truth that sets me free:
I am one with God in love.
He says there is no world.

As if there is no fear. As if there are no tears.
I simply know that I am whole, and only love
is here. The Spirit guides my way, and gently
plans each day, each blessed one who seems
to come, and what I am to say to tell them
there's no world.

No longer can I feel that images are real.
No longer will I try adjusting to a lie.
With happiness I see the truth that sets me free:
I am one with God in love.
He says there is no world.

As if there is no time, with moments in a line.
The point of power is right now, here in My
holy Mind. The script is in the past. Illusions
cannot last. The gentle scenes, forgiven
dreams, I watch with joy and laugh
because there is no world.

No longer can I feel that images are real.
No longer will I try adjusting to a lie.
With happiness I see the truth that sets me free:
I am one with God in love.
He says there is no world.

As if there is no pain, no sins or guilt or
stains. I am the One, the perfect Son, by
God's own Will ordained. My home I never
left, exchanging it for death. Born of light,
I am the Christ. I live in peacefulness
because there is no world.

No longer can I feel that images are real.
No longer will I try adjusting to a lie.
With happiness I see the truth that sets me free:
I am one with God in love.

He says there is no world.

Track Name: You Are My Destination
❤ You Are My Destination ❤

Lyrics:
You are my destination. Wherever I go, You're there.
You are my destination on wings of prayer.
You are my sweet vibration. You are my meditation.
You are the celebration of love I share.

This world I travel used to frighten me.
Where should I go? What should I do? How should I look and be?
And then I opened the door within my mind,
where I joyfully go, and there's nothing to do
and I'm simply a light that shines.

You are my destination. Wherever I go, You're there.
You are my destination on wings of prayer.
You are my sweet vibration. You are my meditation.
You are the celebration of love I share.

I see You smiling in every form and face:
Here, all around; there, up and down; love blessing time and space.
I hear You calling in every gentle voice:
Child, come home. You are My own. Remember and rejoice.

You are my destination. Wherever I go, You're there.
You are my destination on wings of prayer.
You are my sweet vibration. You are my meditation.
You are the celebration of love I share.

For peace I had been searching in images outside:
Someone to love, someone who was a better self than I.
Then Your Spirit showed me my holiness within,
perfect and bright light of the Christ that has forever been.

You are my destination. Wherever I go, You're there.
You are my destination on wings of prayer.
You are my sweet vibration. You are my meditation.
You are the celebration of love I share.

Track Name: Interview with David
❤ Interview with David ❤

Helena: Okay! So, David, can you tell us a little bit about sharing the Joy?

David: Sharing the Joy - well that's what life is all about! It feels like life is a series of opportunities to let the joy from deep inside the heart just pour through, and shine out, and radiate out. And to me, that's what I look forward to every day. That's why you get out of bed.

I think it's great; any kind of project or any kind of situation that arises, when you can let that joy shine through, and just pour through you. There's nothing greater than opportunities like that. There's nothing that you look more forward to than to having those opportunities. So this song…with so many ways, I think…this collection of songs really has a lot of joy behind it, so it's quite appropriate. Sharing the joy is a beautiful appropriate title.

(Laughter)

It's great to have the opportunity to put it down onto an album, and to let it touch peoples' hearts. So I know that's something you felt that you wanted to do with your life, and this is like the fulfillment of a life's journey and a life's purpose, so it's exciting. It's exciting to get to this point, to just feel like the sharing is coming through so strong that you can hardly stop from laughing. That's a good sign. Your cup runneth over!

Helena: Awwww… Oh, yeah! Mmmmmm. Thank you!

David: Thank you!
