FEELING ILLUMINATED

Considering my life now - and all the world that’s past
I look to the future- and wonder how long will this last?
And how will I be remembered- in times after I’m gone?
My days may be numbered - but my spirit will live on.
But does the expression of my heart – make a contribution?
Or am I just consuming away – adding to the pollution?
All these heavy questions – burdens leading to disparity
I’ve got to reach within – to find myself and gain some clarity!

So I can be feeling illuminated
Feeling rejuvenated
Feeling so elated
With nothing I could lose
In feeling illuminated
Feeling rejuvenated
Feeling so elated
There’s so much life to choose!


But every society thrusts on us their well-defined projection
In pushing back all we’ll find is that we get rejection
We fail to see the mirrors and everything acting in reflection
Deep inside don’t we want to reach out and make a clear connection

Materialism has its merits but in time it takes its toll
Do we have enough to fill our pockets? Do we have enough to fill our souls?
So we get all these fiery sermons, and extreme dogmatic visions,
The more zealous the proselytizing, the more misguided the missions!

Are they really feeling illuminated
Feeling rejuvenated
Feeling so elated
Or just caught up in illusions
Of feeling illuminated
Feeling rejuvenated
Feeling so elated
In their divine delusion


But how do I know what wrongs from what’s real
If I can’t trust what’s taught or the way that I feel?
So many options I’m bound to get stuck
Playing this game becomes a mind-f*^k!!!


Of course I’ve had my doubts - but then again haven’t we all
The supposed twist of humanity - that came along with our fall
My spine may be crooked and at times I may complain,
But I have to trust the wild ride is worth its share of pain!
You can find scars on my body, and burns upon my soul
Just don't get caught up in the details, please see me as a whole.


You can tell me what you’d like - about origins and history
But in spite of all that’s said right now- it still remains a mystery
So we can have our God - and praise Him with such glory
But what about the Goddess - why can’t we hear her story?
Oh - you can call me crazy, you can call me mad,
You can call me what you want, but I am so damn glad

To be feeling illuminated
Feeling rejuvenated
Feeling so elated
By all life has to give
In feeling illuminated
Feeling rejuvenated
Feeling so elated
By the life I choose to live!

But if for that I should be humiliated…
Well, then I’ll just learn to love that too!

Because we’re all seeking
To BE illuminated
BE rejuvenated
BE so elated
In whatever path we choose
Toward BEING illuminated
BEING rejuvenated
BEING so elated
And in seeking that we have both everything and nothing to lose…


ILLUMINATION!
