Silent Lucidity leads to Expanded Consciousness

I’ve been a fan of this song for over 20 years and only recently heard it with a whole new level of awareness.  I was amazed at how PERFECTLY it represents the human struggle of managing our psyche (ego) to listen to our soul (authentic intuition).

Our psyche (ego) tricks us into being fearful and judgmental of others and ourselves.  It convinces us that we are in competition with others and that we are not enough.

On the other hand, our soul (authentic intuition), if we listen, constantly tries to remind us that we are MORE than enough…boundless, limitless.

It is in moments of silent reflection that our soul speaks to each of us…the challenge is to silence the psyche and listen…

The lyrics below (sung from the perspective of the soul) should further illustrate my point:

Hush now don’t you cry
Wipe away the teardrop from your eye

You’re lying safe in bed
It was all a bad dream
Spinning in your head

Your mind tricked you to feel the pain
Of someone close to you leaving the game
Of life

So here it is, another chance
Wide awake, you face the day
Your dream is over…

Or has it just begun?

There’s a place I like to hide
A doorway that I run through in the night

Relax child, you were there
But only didn’t realize
And you were scared

It’s a place where you will learn
To face your fears, retrace the years
And ride the whims of your mind

Commanding in another world
Suddenly, you’ll hear and see
This magic new dimension

Will be watching over you
I am gonna help you see it through
Will protect you in the night
I am smiling next to you

In silent lucidity…


Visualize your dream (Yes)
Record it in the present tense (Don’t be scared)
Put it into a permanent form
If you persist in your efforts
You can achieve a dream come true
(How’re you doing today?) (Better?)

Dream come true
Dream come true
Dream come true

Help me…

If you open your mind for me
You won’t rely on open eyes to see

The walls you built within
Come tumbling down
And a new world will begin

Living twice at once you learn
You’re safe from pain in the dream domain
A soul set free to fly

A round trip journey in your head
Master of illusion, can you realize?
Your dream’s alive, you can be the guide but…

Will be watching over you
I am gonna help you see it through
Will protect you in the night
I am smiling next to you…
