Introduction

How did this book and recording come to be?

How Can I use this book and recording?
______________________________
By Michael D. Purvis

In April of 2003, I received a wonderful e-mail through Yahoo Groups from Michael Levy. The e-mail concerned a CD, which I mistakenly thought was finished, and ready to be sent out into the world. I was so impressed with the concept for the CD that I sent Michael an e-mail in return, asking for a sample CD, and offering to do a review of the recording.

To my surprise, I received an e-mail back from Michael stating that this CD was still in the conceptual stages. Being the delightfully spontaneous soul that he is, Michael suggested I might like to work on the idea with him- as a joint project.

Then, as synchronistic things are wont to happen, we had several e-mail exchanges and a wonderful, spontaneous, spirit-filled conversation over the telephone. The long and short of it is, Michael suggested I might simply take the concept and run with it, and see what I could do with it. So, being the spontaneous soul that I am, I did!

I began looking at Michael's work and my own, and found there were many synchronicities, and that much of our writings fit together rather nicely. Further, they fit in with the concept for the recording quite well too.

As I worked on the project, it became apparent that the idea wanted to be a book first, so here it is. Michael and I hope this book will be a blessing to you. Please read the forward of this book (next page) so you can get a good idea of the purpose of this publication.

Also, we hope you will want to hear the accompanying recording, which is a useful and important enhancement to this book, since the focus of the work, as our title suggests, is: The Sounds of Your Life. We think you will want to hear the beautiful sounds and music which this recording offers.

One of the nicest ways to use this tool is to have the book in front of you while you listen to the recording. Having both the visual and the auditory makes for a complete and quite fulfilling experience. You might do this a little each day as you have your prayer or meditation time- or all in one sitting. You may want to read and listen just for enjoyment. Let it be as you wish.

Or, if you are busy in your life, listen to the recording or read the book as you are able.
If you only have five or ten minutes here or there, put the book or recording where you will notice it, and read or listen a little at a time. Let it sink into your consciousness when you are able, and at the time or times which feel right.

Michael and I hope you will use and integrate into your life whatever you find in our book/recording which resonates with you at this particular point in your life's journey. We also hope this publication will be a springboard for you to do some noticing and listening of your own in your lives, and that it will encourage your intuition and creativity.

Ask Spirit to guide you in the reading and integrating of the ideas of this book. You will know just how and when to read it, and how the ideas within it might help you.

We send to you our love, and ask that this book and its accompanying recording might be a catalyst for many blessings for you, dear reader…

Enjoy!

Foreword

What is the purpose of this book and accompanying recording?

Dear reader or listener,

Michael and I want to take you on a journey of the soul, to encourage you to quiet your mind, reduce distractions, and open you heart and soul to the music of your life- which is the music of God, in you and in the world!

For you are not separate form God or your brothers and sisters in the world, and tuning into the wonderful sounds of your life, the very music of your soul will help you to see this, thus opening you to infinite possibility.

To see and hear the "song of God" in all things, in all aspects of your life, to know that we are connected to each other and not separate from God is a great gift! And, connecting to the sounds of your life, the music of your life, the earth, and your soul will help you to do this!

To quiet our minds and listen to the music of love and connectedness in and all around us opens us to spontaneity, intuition, synchronicity, healing, enjoyment and creation.

May you find your authentic self/soul through learning to listen to the sounds of your life. May you hear your own song, which is singing in harmony with all others, with all the souls of the earth, who in turn are singing their own songs, unique, yet connected, in harmony.

What are the lyrics to your song, others songs, gods song? In short:

We are love! We create!
That's who we are!

A Poem and a Fable

Here is a fable by Michael Purvis and a poem by Michael Levy to start things off. These two works will introduce the themes of "Silence" and "Quiet," and give us an idea how beneficial these states can be. As well, they will lead us toward exploring the sounds of our lives, which as the title of this publication suggests, is a very good thing to do!

Myth: The Story of Skin
By Michael D. Purvis

once
Skin decided to sit very still in the grass

He let Thought think that it had caused this lack of motion
(but really it was Skin!)

Skin

Skin was so tired of containing them all:
Bones dancing, Teeth grinding, Lungs breathing
and particularly Heart-
always beating and beating
always feeling and sensing and hurting so

and all of them
all contained within Skin

Skin

always obeying, going where told
hot and cold, dry and wet and rough
on and on-

until one day
Skin just sat-
said "enough!"

enough

and so, they all sat
Skin sent them a message secretly
a coded, subliminal message through pores and nerves
he let them think it was theirs, their idea to do this

Mind said:
"let us sit
sit and be quiet and listen!"

Heart said:
"let us sit sit sit sit sit "

Bones said the best:
"let us sit and just be,
and see what's in our center"

and they were all pleased with themselves

(and Skin enjoyed it so)

for once, he just sat
no orders were given
they were all
quiet

Skin smiled and opened his million eyes
the breeze blew gently, just for Skin
Sun warmed him
Grass caressed
And Earth sang Skin a lullaby

and for once
he was happy

in fact he didn't even complain
when Bones sat up suddenly
Heart beat
and Feet danced
running down the dirt road
carrying Skin along once again-

for in that blessed moment of silence, of just being
Skin made room for one more inside
Skin made room for Spirit

And things would never be the same

A Poem from the book
Minds of Blue, Souls of Gold
by Michael Levy

THE BLISSFUL SILENCE

In the silence of my thoughtless mind,
I leave the pettiness of condition behind,
I feel the exaltation of God's kiss,
I truly am in a wondrous divine bliss.

In my peaceful harmony I am immersed,
floating weightless throughout the universe,
I feel the comfort of a glowing ember,
in a timeless world, an ecstasy to remember.

One on one, God as God in a field of gold,
an endless flowing stream, never feeling old,
worth more than all the treasure can bestow,
I rise up in an everlasting eternal glow.

In this state of mind, beauty is all I find,
this is the Cosmos gift for all man kind,
it's time to light the torch, don't be frightened,
in Silent Meditation, you will be enlightened.
